Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 9/21/09 Notes

COWBOYS OFFENSE V. GIANTS DEFENSE

v Witten used as a movable chess piece in the Cowboys offense

v LB Boley tendency to overpursue, and abandon his gap responsibility in the run game

v Johnson was the Giants nickel corner in this game, He aligned outside with Thomas moving inside to his normal slot position
