Default Please...PLEASE...quit the bubble screens

I made a thread about this when Suggs picked one off in the regular season but it bears repeating. If the refs don't botch that call where Wallace dropped the backwards pass, then maybe the Denver game isn't even that close. THAT PLAY HAS TO GO!

This offense needs to learn to execute better on those plays if they're going to keep running it.

now that we "choreograph" them for everyone and their mother to see before we throw it......AND run the snap count clock down to 1 before we hike the ball.
Even the announcers are calling them on us at this point.

I agree with this, it's a wasted play, especially when they're used as often and as poorly as we do.

I dunno, I like them when they're done well but they need to be disguised better. Like the 4 receiver diamond formation we did? It'd be nice to see some other plays come out of that if possible so the defense doesn't think screen and try to break it up.

The whole forum all year has been saying that all year, I said it would bite us in the ass and it did at the two worst times, against Baltimore in Pittsburgh and today in Denver. There is no reason for this stupidity!!
