I can't even begin to count the number of times over the last three seasons that people commented how we were the worst team in the league at executing a screen.

Haley didn't fail to attempt to use McCluster on screens, they were just ineffective because defenses didn't respect Cassel's ability to go over the top.

You can't effectively screen if the defense is packed in to the LOS.

Interesting perspective. However, McCluster still had 5 catches for 89 yards against the Raiders without Haley. They were forward passes from Orton to McCluster in space. Those weren't screen passes. Haley didn't use him right imo.

DMC is much worse with Cassel in there because defenses expect him to get the ball as a check down since that's all Cassel can hit on a regular basis. Most of DMCs catches under Cassel gave him no chance for YAC. The QB is supposed to make everyone better. Cassel depends on others to make him better.
