Week 12 Game Reviews

Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns

Texans

- Nice job by Sage Rosenfels on their first drive of throwing with good timing. He read the defense well and got the ball to his receivers on time with anticipation.

- With Houston doubling Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter got one on one coverage and he easily beat short CB Brandon McDonald for a TD. Rosenfels threw it up to Walter who made a nice adjustment on the ball.

- Ahman Green got lots of work in the first half before he injured his knee.

- Nice mixture of run and pass in the first half. They kept the Cleveland defense guessing.

- The Texan OL gave Rosenfels plenty of time to throw the ball in the first half. The Brown defense got next to no pressure on Rosenfels and when they did, he easily stepped up in the pocket to make his throws.

- Andre’ Davis had a nice long kickoff for a TD called back due to a penalty.

- Walter was getting open all the time in the first half. It was just a matter of the ball being spread around to other options and in the running game.

COACHING TAPE – WEEK 12 (11/24/08)

TITANS OFFENSE VS. JETS DEFENSE

Titans ran only 51 offensive plays, and had the ball for less than 20 minutes
Titans play breakdown: 40 called passes / 11 called runs
DT Jenkins once again dominant, and it showed up right away, both in the run game and as a pass rusher – Jenkins controlled and shed C Mawae on 3rd + 1 on Titans second series, White 1 yard loss
Jets a high percentage of man coverage concepts, especially in long yardage situations: “2 man” and “man free”
Gholston played some snaps as OLB in the base 3-4 front, He was the strong side OLB – Also played some snaps at DE in the dime package
Jets front seven an excellent of shedding blocks and finding the football in the run game
Scaife a big drop on 3rd + 7 on first series of second quarter: Scaife offset in backfield, DB Barrett had him man-to-man, Scaife beat him on a seam route – Again, Jets “man free” with lurk element
Jets had Barrett on Scaife in their man coverage schemes, Clearly game planned
Titans had a hard time blocking Jenkins, He was very disruptive versus both run and pass
Titans OL overmatched in the first [...]

I use the word “massive” a lot because it describes most of the articles we do. I really want to continue to try to scale back our word counts because I […]

If you’re looking for perfect grammar and punctuation, don’t read this. WR Mike Brown drops a TD pass on opening drive of game. Maurice Jones-Dr […]
