I don't think I have ever seen us run a flee flicker. A lot of teems have had recent sucess using a play like that. I would love to see us try it out once. It could result in a 70 yard bomb to Johnson or something nutty.

Didn't DD or Gaffney make a pass to the end zone?

IM talking more of the hand off to DD, DD runs a few steps, then throws it back to Carr who launches it.

Last year Mack threw an interception in the endzone and that is the last flee flicker I rember.

That would be a halfback pass, not a flea-flicker. I'm not sure we have run one.

I was thinking this over while sipping my tee. I haven't seen many teems use a flee flicker in quite some time. Then I decided to reed a website I go to, and discovered that indeed, many teems do use flees, but only in treening camp, to help motivate the players. This seems meen to me. Oh well, back to my tee. :popcorn:

btw.. i saw a teem use a flee flicker not too long ago. hmm.. actually that might have been a statue of liberty play or something.

I think it was the Cowboys against the Steelers.. but im not positive now.

It was a cowboys game. I think parcells wanted to see how many former Jets could touch the ball on one play. It did work though and was exciting.

I think i remember us doing one last year or the year before. I think that carr got sacked.

we did it last year...i'll never forget it cuz the guy behind me called all year for a flee flicker and when they did it, my goodness i've never seen a happier dude.

I think it was handoff to davis, pitch back to carr, carr gets sacked

I would like to see a quick-kick by the supertackle. That would throw everyone off. But only if we're in 3rd and long.

That was against Miami. It was a QB throwback.

The best time to run a flee flicker; 3 and 1 at the opponent's 40. Too far to kick a FG, but so close a punt would probably go into the end zone. The best team to run a flee flicker would have to be MN. The opposition has to respect the run and Daunte could get the ball back and throw it too Moss. I think it could work with the Texans, but with a lower success rate.

The play is a FLEA-flicker, and not flee flicker

flea-flick·er [ flflkr ]
n. Football


1. An offensive play in which the ball is handed off, often in a double reverse, and then tossed back to the quarterback, who throws a long pass.

2. An offensive play in which a pass is thrown to a receiver who then laterals the ball to a teammate.

That's the Hook & Ladder.

Yeah it is. I didn't even look at 2. I was just trying to confirm that I wasn't crazy with the flee/flea thing.
