    Why does no one run this play?

    Michigan ran it a little against me, but other than that, I've never seen it - and I try to run it once or twice a game.

    Any other fans out there?

    Only screens I can ever manage to run succesfully is the Bubble and Slip Screens.

    I run middle screen at least once a game. It's a feast or famine play. Goes for a TD or -5 yards. Sometimes I even throw picks. I run it more against people who over blitz. I actually load it as one of my audibles. If I don't feel a huge blitz coming of at least 6 or 7 I audible put of it. I run it often on 2nd or 3rd and very short or inside red zone where a D is likely to load the box or over blitz

    I picked one of these off in a big game once...didn't make much of a difference though...

    I avoid the middle screen in real life as much as I do on this game. I don't like the idea of bringing my speed guys over the middle to get whacked like that. Too risky and I have other ways that effectively work for me.
