COACHING TAPE – WEEK 11 (11/20/08)

BUCS OFFENSE VS. VIKINGS DEFENSE

Bucs ran offensive plays, and gained 363 total yards
Bucs 5-12 on third down conversions – They got in the red zone 5 times, and scored only 1 TD
Gruden a lot of shifting and motion to create the illusion of sophistication
Bucs failed to convert on 3rd +1, and 4th + 1 on their first series
Dunn 36 yard catch on 3rd + 3 on first quarter FG drive was vintage Garcia: He couldn’t see the throw to Bryant in the middle of the field because of all the big bodies in front of him, so he left the pocket and extended the play; His movement broke down the defense and Dunn worked with him to find an open area down the right sideline – Garcia at his best
Bucs version of the “Wildcat”: Direct snap to Dunn in the shotgun, He was flanked by FBs Askew and Cook with Garcia split left – Dunn2 yards
Gruden a lot of 2 TE personnel packages, and a lot of tight splits and bunch concepts: He does not have WRs who can consistently win on the outside with isolation routes against corners, including Bryant – Gruden needs to help them with formation, route [...]

    Here are all the story lines I’m following for fantasy in Week Seven.  N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2)  Who will carry the load at RB for the Patriots? You’d have to think this week it will be Brandon Bolden, since James White is inactive and Jonas Gray was just signed off the practice squad today and is active. Can Bandon LaFell keep it up and emerge a […]

  • Week 6 story lines October 9, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following this week in the NFL… Indianapolis (3-2) at Houston (3-2) Can the Colts maintain their high level of play with 2 starters on the OL out tonight?

  • Week 5 story lines October 3, 2014
    Here are 88 story lines I’ll be following in Week 5 . Minnesota (2-2) at Green Bay (2-2) Will the Vikings continue to play like they did last week?
