Okay, as soon as someone with first-hand knowledge says "yeah, they practice it all the time but they just can't do it", then I'll believe it. Otherwise, what it looks like to me is a team that rarely practices it, to wit they've only called a few 14 games into the season, and SHOCKER, they haven't gone too well.
Do you think maybe teams like the Saints and Chiefs might devote a decent chunk of practice time to perfecting screens? Again, it's a play that requires feel and timing, something very hard to do when you don't practice it and then in the heat of a game, just run a single screen as some one-off play Roman decides to try.
