Do We Ever Throw To The Running Backs?

Recommended Posts

WE dont screen...ever....Addai, Brown or whoever..

..and its there.....Baltimore brought 8 on occasion.....

They KNOW we wont screen or draw or shuttle pass......

..because we just dont...

the bubble screen is gone...

The WR reverse has gone for the winter...

So many predictable plays.....We spot the other team 10-14 every game

We tried a screen to Brown at the end of the first haf the result was a loss of 6. If that was the result I would go away from it too.

The screen works if you catch the other team off guard by throwing the ball down the field or running well. The idea of the screen is to invite the defense up the field to get after the QB and then dump it over their heads so to speak.

Well if you watch how teams have been playing us lately they get enough pressure with their front four they don't have to bring extra guys and because of the success we had with screens at the start of the years the defense sits on them thus taking them away from us and forcing us to beat them another way. As we have seen neither Painter or Orlovsky seem to be good enough to beat them in other ways on a regular basis.

Not today......GoColts...

Baltimore sometimes brought 6 and 7 and 8 on pass/blitz downs

That wanst a screen at the end of the half.....that was a checkoff/panic that he threw at his feet.

Bad throw....and a bailout..Brown shouldnt even have caught it...

I'm talking a planned screen pass where you face to the right and screen to the left....

We dont do that..even against an 8 man rush..

Oldunclemark, I agree with you. Screens and draws keep a defense off balance, and we all know just how balanced defenses have been while playing us this year >.>

Moose....

on a screen your linemen are supposed to miss the block

Yes... the linemen release protection to the QB to clear a path/block for the receiver. (Whether it's a WR or RB or whatever)

When I say blocking, I mean clearing a path for the receiver. Not blocking the QB. I should have clarified that I suppose.

My point stands. THEY CAN'T BLOCK. For anybody lol...

I have what may be a dumb question and not that it affects the final score,but we go for it on 4th and 1(after missing on 3rd and 1),but yet settle for 3 rather than get 7?What is there to lose?LOL

Well..I'm sure not going to argue that we blocked anybody today...

..and a lot of that was..they know they didnt have to cover deep because we didnt have t time or the QB to get it there..

...and Manning watched our 13th consecutive loss...

did we lose all the pre-season games, too?

Unless the play is designed for the running back (screen passes really), then the only time they get passes is when all the receivers are covered, and the QB needs to dump it off to someone. They're the last resort. Our QBs don't really throw to them often because they believe they can thread it into the receivers, but they can't. Plus our RBs block on a lot of plays.

I'm not sure if the coaches/coordinators know what a screen pass is. Ohh wait they know what a WR screen is but that's about it (which I hate btw because they rarely work). I do agree though with the atrocious blocking, not sure how well it would fair. Unfortunately the Colts aren't as good as they are in the Madden games where you can do screen passes and pitch runs all day.

    • Here is where I sit. Which is a safer situation to be in. A controlled environment that is constantly testing and taking measures to limit contact, sanitize, and the spread of the disease and because you are being tested so often could likely notify you that you caught it sooner and help protect you from spreading it to your family and allow you quicker treatment all the while making millions of dollars well i think that would be a better option. Staying at home isn’t exactly safe...and I’d be surprised these guys aren’t at more risk by opting out then opting in. That said it’s a free country and if they are worried about their health that is respectable....I mean sure they play the most violent and harmful sport/activity that one could so obviously worrying about their health goes so far but it’s their right to choose. Just know you while you are sitting someone is taking your job and that money you pass up there is no other job after football that you can make up that money in.
    • Football as a blood sport?
    • Truth can be disappointing, if you bother to look.   The problem with any organization or movement that grows from infancy, is that missteps occur along the way.  Most would acknowledge these missteps, admit when they were wrong, apologize, then seek to correct the processes so the same wrongness doesn't happen again.   Has BLM ever admitted they did anything wrong...ever? If we don't get the message, I guess that's our shortcoming and not theirs, after 4 years of delivering the message.     A group that is confident that their message is rooted in truth would be able to admit their missteps.  OTOH, it seems like BLM must think their cause is built on a house of cards that would totally collapse if anything wrong was admitted.     From the Wash Post: Of the 10,000,000 arrests that happened in 2019 in the USA, 1,100 involved police shootings.  9 of the victims were unarmed blacks.  While brutality is not the same as an actual shooting, it does seem like police brutality against blacks....white cops not black cops....would be situational anomalies rather than something indicative of a systemic problem that a dopey, untalented, and angry NFL QB would apply to the country as whole by disrespecting its flag and anthem.
