Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 9/28/09 Notes

COACHING TAPE – WEEK 3

VIKINGS OFFENSE V. 49ERS DEFENSE

Vikings OL still struggled with stunts, This is a continuing problem for the Vikings
S Lewis aligned at LB in the 49ers dime package: Bly was the third corner, and Roman was the third safety; CB Brown also played as the 49ers 6th DB
LG Hutchinson had problems with the bull rush of Justin Smith
Rice 30 yd TD came out of “21” (2 backs and 1 TE) personnel, Straight “I” formation: 49ers blitzed S Lewis from Rice’s side and rolled the other S Goldshon over the top of Berrian, CB Clements played outside leverage versus Rice but he had no help with Goldshon rotated over the top of Berrian
Harvin very effective working the slot: Quick, explosive and powerful
49ers high percentage blitz out of their dime package, Made sense given weakness of Vikings OL in pass protection and Favre’s tendency to get the ball out quick

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 […]

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups.

Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
