This is what happens when you\'ve got an offensive coordinator that\'s given up on them because the QB can\'t throw them. If the offense can\'t run it, the defense can\'t practice against it. Isn\'t it funny that Green Bay didn\'t have a problem running screen passes when McCarthy was there.


Even Billy Joe Tolliver could compleate a screen...

Are you seriously trying to say the Saints can\'t stop a screen because you don\'t think Brooks can throw one? How\'s our blockin\' been on those screens eh? NOW I\'ve heard it all. :casstet:

Why would you need to block for it if the quarterback cannot throw it ????....

Show me the fire under center .

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 . Brooks aint got the fire , Hasselbeck looked more in command for Seattle . Hopefully we were watching the same game , I saw one were the high octane offense only managed 7 points .

Look, if you want to start the season rubbing up against Brooks again, fine. He can\'t throw a short pass consistently. That\'s reality. In fact the only screen he can throw is a wide receiver screen because he\'s throwing it ten to fifteen yards. But when it comes to a five yarder, zilch.


You can argue with me all day long but you asked the question, I answered it. Brooks can\'t throw short. That\'s why screens aren\'t part of the Saints offense. If he could deliver the ball to the back you might see some blocking but if the back has to jump through hoops and make circus catches, it kinda renders the surprise of a screen pass useless, doesn\'t it.


You\'re a smart guy. Stop acting like you don\'t know this...
