WR Screen... when will we see it tomorrow?

Ok, this is an unoffical poll, but I was watching the Skins/Eagles game last week with a fellow Skins fan and I correctly pre-called one of the WR screens to Moss before it happened. We try it every week, but Gibbs seems to pick his spots, so my question is when will see this week? Early? Late? Everyone knows we run it, but it seems to work most of the time.

I hope it's a pure audible. We can expect Ronde Barber to line up in front of Moss every time this week. If he is playing up, that's a very dangerous pass. If he's playing back, it's at least an eight yard pickup.

I'd say later on. They'll be prep'd for it so early on I wouldn't want to run it. In fact I'd love to run a fake of some sort out of it's formation early on and then follow it up with a few different types of plays from the same formation to loosen up the coverage on it so early in the 3rd we can run it and watch Moss bitchify Barber on it hopefully.

Re: WR Screen... when will we see it tomorrow?

I have seen a couple teams in the past run that pump fake handoff all in one motion deal. I'd love to see that type of thing out of the WR screen formation. Does anyoen know what formation they sue and whether it would even be possible or work?

I read the Skins usually have three options on every pass play and the play goes based on what defense they get. Maybe if they get press coverage they go to a different option on that play. In fact I'd bet that's normal operating procedure week in and week out on that play. Let's hope we don't actually try to throw it into press coverage.

Man when that play works it is a thing of beauty. But I have to admit I cringe everytime it is run. One player out of position and it is "6" for the other team.

We will see it, several times I think.

Barber is pretty damn good and fast too. Hopefully Gibbs will use a formation he hasn't shown yet for WR screen.

I think it's really been a very dangerous pass all season. I think our motion before the snap has helped buy some time to allow the play to develope.

On this same note, what is the Over / Under that Sellers scores on that "Fullback into the flat" pass from inside the 10yard line that he does every week!

The Skins run that every week and no one seems to ever cover Sellers, Someone is not watching film very well.

Some one will eventually cover Sellers on that play and we'll actually get to see who the play is designed for. It couldn't be designed for him as the real first option because, well it's Mike Sellers. But there has to be another good option on that play. Another option that was probably initially the real first option before the league decided not to cover Sellers like he had the plague or something. It is amazing how he consistently doesn't get covered on it.

I wouldn't mind seeing ST lined up on the goal line as a reciever again...

It's a very tough play to defend in the redzone because the D is so keyed in on the run.

Re: WR Screen... when will we see it tomorrow?

Regarding the WR screen, is this the same play so many people had such a big problem with last year and earlier in this season?

I guess having the right personnel and good execution makes a big difference.
