Can we please stop a screen

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; You\'re a smart guy. Stop acting like you don\'t know this... At times, but I\'m still not understanding how you can blame Brooks for our inability to stop a screen pass. Brooks bashers are amazing. What you call \"Rubbing up ...

You\'re a smart guy. Stop acting like you don\'t know this...
At times, but I\'m still not understanding how you can blame Brooks for our inability to stop a screen pass. Brooks bashers are amazing. What you call \"Rubbing up against Brooks\" I call being honest.

Hopefully we were watching the same game , I saw one were the high octane offense only managed 7 points
I saw the same game...but if you\'re gonna blame Brooks for it then you\'ll have to start by makin\' something up. Same as last year 08...dropped passes and horrible pass protection.

Here you go Saintfan , if you cannot figure out why the Saints cannot run a screen ask your mother .... She might have some understanding you do not ... :P

Screen Pass - A short forward pass, lofted over the heads of rushing defensemen.

That would be a touch pass .....

Hasbeen\'s desire to run a high octane aerial assault , has left no lead blocking for Duece and has taken the leader of the offense out of the game .
I thought they went to a two tight end offense to get Boo Williams in there more. Somebody should ask \'em why? Especially since he was a non-issue today...

At times, but I\'m still not understanding how you can blame Brooks for our inability to stop a screen pass.

I thought I already answered this but I\'ll try again. The defense never gets to practice against the screen because the offense doesn\'t run it. Why doesn\'t the offense run it? For the reasons regarding Brooks that I\'ve already stated.


Look, I know the first team defense practices against second team offense for game plan purposes. But screens are pretty much Defense 101. Unless your team can\'t or won\'t run them. If your defense can\'t practice against quality play execution (screens, posts, etc.) your defense can\'t and won\'t be effective against those types of plays.


If the Saints can\'t run a screen, how can they practice defending it? The defense probably looks great in practice against it. But against who is the real question. By game time, against teams that can run screens properly, the defense looks ineffective.

That\'s just silly.

Doode, get over hating Brooks long enough to blame those actually responsible. This is a stretch, and you\'re bound to know it.

Did you see Lewis call for a fair catch at the 15 with no one within 10 yards of him?

Obviously Brooks\' fault you idiot.
