Really? Then explain how it is they are fast and athletic enough to get out front on pulls and stretch plays. The handful of screens they did run this year had middling success. I believe it's a simple case of the screen game is just not a highly-valued weapon in the arsenal and as such, rarely gets practiced....screens are a play that relies on feel and timing between all involved: OL, QB, RB/WR...just not something you can expect great results if you only dial it up once every few games. I wish that would change, because I think they'd be d*** good at it, but there hasn't been much to indicate that HaRo are too keen on it.
