    Do you guys think we address the screen game this year? This is something I think we need to address in order to take tons of pressure off Locker and put CJ in position to make big plays.

    Our screen game has been atrocious and calling it that is being nice.

    We have the deadliest RB in the NFL in open space, but yet a RB screen seems to be a wasted play these days.

    Well I certainly think we have better blocking. Delanie Walker can line up anywhere and block down the field, our Guards can pull pretty well, and we have some solid blocking WR's including the new guy Kevin Walter. I guess it really comes down to if Locker can get the ball to CJ and if he does can CJ catch it?

    Hopefully CJ learns how to catch this offseason. He had plenty of opportunities to gain tons of yardage on dysfunctional screen passes, only to drop the easy pass.

    Yeah seems like whenever I saw a screen pass either 1. Ball never got to the RB/WR 2. drop or 3. play was never set up properly and either gained 0 or lost yards

    Just not having Hutchinson and Harris anymore will go a long ways, I think those 2 were really holding us back.

    they played most of 2012 lazy and weak. we're already better because of their abscence.

    I always get kinda pissed when teams run screens against us, especially bubble screens. The play seems like it is very simple to run, it's cheap, and hard to stop. But then again, we have some great players to run some screens with, in Johnson and Wright. Hopefully the revamped offensive line will also help us in the screen department.

    Our screens are always so obvious and nobody blocks that side of the field. The guy the screen is supposed to go to has 3 guys about to level him when the ball is in the air. I can't understand how we can't run a single screen successfully. I think I only saw a few work and they went to Wright. They only worked because he made some nice moves and got 5-10 yards.

    I have been waiting for this. Would love to see them team do more to get :cj: out in space. It would probably work better going to the left. Roos and Levitre would be better to putt out in front than Warmack and Big Country.

    slip screen and bubble screen and check-downs to CJ in the middle. That chit SHOULD work with Delanie Walker on board.

    I know everybody keeps saying this year depends on Locker, but I really think this depends on Bruce Matthews ability to get our OL to re-establish some dominance.

    Our team made screens look like utter rocket science. Whether it was a bubble to Wright, or out of the backfield with CJ
