this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If a=c and b=c then a=b... You know me far better than I\'d readily admit, but the question remains. Since it has been opined that the Saints cannot defend the Screen because Brooks cannot throw the screen, did Green Bay ...

You know me far better than I\'d readily admit, but the question remains. Since it has been opined that the Saints cannot defend the Screen because Brooks cannot throw the screen, did Green Bay have the same problem on Monday due to Farve\'s inability to throw a screen pass?

Brooks quickly called a play on his own, but the blocking scheme was wrong, resulting in poor execution before McAllister\'s fumble.
Some leader on offense , he does not know the playbook .Which results in improper blocking for his back which resulted in a fumble ....

Look beyond the single moment Saintfan , you can do it .....
I guess all the drops on Sunday was also because of AB\'s playcalling...........thats why they got so open! You people are incredible(Call yourself football fans? blamin a fumble by deuce on Ab?)

CLEARLY! LMAO.

Who made that statement anyway?

You know me well enough to know that I may be able to be baited at times, but I\'m not quite dumb enough to rush in and defend the guy who said that the Saints can\'t defend a screen pass b/c AB can\'t throw one.

True, the Saints are pretty terrible using the screen and defending it. I\'m not sure why, but if I really had to guess, I think I\'d say something like this:

The ability to defend a screen well has to do with LBs and DTs being able to diagnos the lpay quickly and get out in the flats to nail the RB out of the backfield. Where has the weak spot on our D been for years (other than CB) - DT and LB.

On Offense, I don\'t know. Either our Line doesn\'t sell it well, Brooks doesn\'t sell it well, Deuce is such a major target on our offense that no team is going to allow him to just slip out of the backfield, or McCarthy can\'t coach it and call it appropriately. My bet is all of the above. I\'d like to see them try a few with Stecker. The guy is better in the open field than Deuce (he\'s a speedy make-you-miss kind of a runner), and he\'s less likely to attract the attention of every LB on the field when he \"slips\" out of the backfield (as compared to the 235 pound MVP of our team).

True, you are easily baited (as most of us are) but I\'m not baitin ya here. I\'ll just say it was said (by someone) that the Saints Defense is unable to defend the screen pass because they are unable to practice it because Brooks can\'t throw one in practice. Now, while that\'s not THE silliest thing I\'ve ever heard (08 still holds the record), it\'s way up there.

So, I\'m waiting on the fellow that posted that to asnwer the question. We all watched the Pathers run the screen rather successfully last Monday night. I\'m askin the fellow who made the original statement if this is because the GB defense is unable to practice defending the screen due to Farve\'s inability to throw one in practice?

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
