COACHING TAPE – WEEK 11 (11/21/08)

VIKINGS OFFENSE VS. BUCS DEFENSE

Vikings only 52 offensive plays, and 210 total yards – They had the ball for only 26 minutes
Ruud sack to end Vikings first series came out of “man free” coverage concept in which Bucs had DE Adams man-to-man on TE Shiancoe – This speaks to the athleticism and versatility of Adams
Bucs continue to play more man coverage concepts that they have in past seasons under Kiffin
S Piscitelli showed some speed on Peterson 22 yard run, He just about ran down Peterson
DT Sims giving the Bucs some solid snaps – Sims beat LG Hutchinson on 2nd + goal from the Bucs 3 yard line and stopped Peterson for a loss of 1
Vikings split TE Shiancoe a number of times and had success: He was matched man-to-man versus LB Brooks in the first quarter and caught a fade for 23 yards; In the second quarter, he caught an 18 yard slant against Barber in a “cover 3” zone concept – Vikings clearly trying to create and dictate matchups with Shiancoe
There is absolutely no pop or physicality to LT KcKinnie
Frerotte not very relaxed, Played fast and undisciplined, Left some plays on the field – [...]

The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked.

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft).
