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

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out? There’s some value in the #2 spot, but it’s a revolving door with Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Does Owen Daniels continue to be a large factor?

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
