A Bubble Screen is a quick pass to a WR or TE with other WRs/TE blocking downfield for them. A Swing Pass is thrown to a RB running horizontal to the Line of Scrimmage after starting in the backfield, but it's only truly a Swing Pass if he has started to turn upfield. A screen pass to a RB could look like a combination of both the Bubble Screen and the Swing Pass, but he must catch it behind the LoS, and most screen passes also have OL getting out front and downfield to block.
Based on what I've read on HM, ALL of the above used to be called "Swing Passes," but now that seems to be evolving.
Fwiw, I don't remember any Bubble Screens in Saturday's Red-White game, though I do remember a couple of swing passes to the RB, and a sort of odd delayed screen pass to the RB after the QB rolled out in the opposite direction. This was the play where AM (with assistance from the wind) threw a backwards pass for a 9-yard loss.
As far as the dangerous passes mentioned above, I think that the most dangerous Out-patterns that I saw on Saturday were some simple sideline Out-patterns where the WR sat down in the cushion of zone coverage, or the Smash concepts that Nixon & Co. ran where they started inside then crossed underneath at least one outside WR who was slanting in. Both are relatively generic offensive plays that are a part of every offensive scheme that I know of from Osborne's era through now and into the foreseeable future. Jeff Smith was running a variant of the Smash concept when we failed to convert the 2-point conversion against Miami in the '84 Orange Bowl. About half of the passes that Ricky Simmons caught in the early 80s were variants of the mid-level Out-pattern against deep zone coverage.
