Default Flee Flicker

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Quote:
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.

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.
