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
49ers not a conventional 3-4: The DL often aligned in gaps, and they did  [...]

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?
