Default Bubble Screen

Anyone have a guess on when the first bubble screen will be executed? I'm thinking, second drive, in the first quarter... Wanted to put 50 on it, but can't find it on a betting site.

1st drive. 3rd play.
We're AWFUL at bubble screens and throw it way too much.

It's not the play it's the receiver who gets the ball.

Yep. Ward will be the one getting it and then get blasted in the backfield for a 3 yard loss...

Arians has been thinking we've been the New England Patriots since 2007. Too bad for him, we aren't

That bubble screen is made for a player like Welker who can easily slip behind his blockers and then turn it on.

Essentially we run 3 plays. We run up the middle with no fullback, we throw long, slow developing passes when the other team blitzes, and we throw bubble screens to the slowest WR. Based on that, I'd say it would have to be within the first 3 plays and probably about 30% of the plays thereafter.
