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 [...]

  • 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? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]
