Can we finally run a halfback screen?

    With the emphasis that has been reported on the RB's catching passes in minicamp, the addition of Kozier who has to be more mobile than LA, and two TE's that are both threats to catch as well as good blockers, will this be the year that we finally execute an effective halfback screen? It seems like the weapons we have will really be able to make defenses pay if they bite on the play-action.

    Personally, I highly doubt we will run screens effectively this year. We probably have the personnel to do it but history says we haven't done it since the Landry days.

    We actually did it pretty effectively last year. Most of JJ's yards at the second Giants game came out of screens. People forget how much of a big player and factor he was in that game because we lost. He had average rushing yards, but his recieving yards were great.

    MB3 was pretty effective on screens during the Chiefs game as well.
