Worst Play EvARRR

The wide-receiver bubble screen has got to be the worst play ever designed. For those who don't know what the hell this is, see the diagram below:

Ask your self how many times you've seen this play succeed. I continually see it getting BLOW'D UP at all levels. Yet, programs continue to deploy this play as if it actually works. Add in a wet-noodle arm QB (Threet/ Sheridan) and you've got not only FAIL but EPIC FAIL (see: ND game). This play is only moderately successful when you have a down-field threat (Henne with Manningham/ Arrignton/ Avant throwing in underneath to Breaston) and good blockers. But it was still FAIL more often than not.
