hiawasseefalcon Posted January 29, 2012 Share Posted January 29, 2012 Ironic that we hire a new oline coach that comes from one of the most screen heavy offenses in college football. He WILL improve our pass blocking and screen blocking.Folks here is the bottom line.If we want to run more screens....AT LEAST on one side of the field, we need to upgrade at center and right guard.Just take a few minutes and youtube:Patriots Screen PlaysScreen Play TDetc.Watch nothing but the center and screen side guard. McClure at C (while experienced and a solid run blocker) is old and too slow to get out and run like good screen centers need to.Hawley can run screens. (Check the ONE screen we ran vs. the Titans to Roddy White)Link: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-fantasy/09000d5d8244e9cb/QB-Ryan-to-WR-White-32-yd-passBlalock is a bulldozer for run blocking....not running down field. He limits us running screens to the left. The tackles are not used as much in screens to RB's, but VERY important in WR screens (like the one to Roddy in which Clabo DID get down field nicely). Typically on a screen to the RB though, the tackles show pass and let the DE's get far upfield. Svitek and Baker SUCK at both pass blocking and screens.SO...........If you want to run screens...........You get a new LT that can both pass block and only run WR screens to the left.Keep Blalock to run block and double the nose. He limits you to WR screens on the left though.Move Hawley to Center and hope he can screen block to the right like he did you the White play.GET a NEW STUD RG so you can run RB screens to the right.Keep Clabo so you can run WR screens to the right.
