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 – [...]

    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything?
