COACHING TAPE – WEEK 13 (12/2/08)

COWBOYS OFFENSE VS. SEAHAWKS DEFENSE

Cowboys 447 total yards on 58 offensive plays
Cowboys only 2-9 on third down conversions, yet 4 trips inside the red zone and 4 TD
Cowboys play breakdown: 35 called passes / 23 called runs (including Romo kneel down)
Holland started at LG for the Cowboys (Kosier done for the season)
With Brady injured this season, Romo the best at pocket movement in the NFL; Romeo very intuitive with uncanny ability to maintain his downfield focus in a muddied pocket, and great vision
Witten was Cowboys matchup piece in this game, They aligned him all over the formation dictating matchups and coverages
Seahawks defense did not challenge the Cowboys pass game at all, No pressure on Romo and a lot of voids in the zone coverage concepts
Few QBs read blitz pressure before the snap as well as Romo, Knows where to go with the ball and gets it out quickly – Also Romo excellent at manipulating coverage with pump fakes and shoulder rolls
Witten 7 yard TD was a great throw by Romo across his body, Kind of like Favre’s TD to Coles last week – Very hard to do, and still throw with accuracy in a [...]

    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? Can Trent Richardson bounce back from a poor game last week against a tough Raven defense? Can Dwayne Allen score yet again and remain a huge factor? He’s being moved all o […]

  • 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? It wasn’t a typical Norv Turner offense, more like Seattle’s with Russell Wilson. Teddy Bridgewater was smart about not exposing himself to hits, but he did get banged up in only one start and he might miss the g […]
