Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 9/30/09 Notes

CHARGERS OFFENSE V. DOLPHINS DEFENSE

Dolphins want Porter aligned on the open side of the formation, where there is no TE in his face
Dolphins matched up with their nickel package, with Jones as the third corner aligned over the slot, based on down and distance, not on the Chargers personnel; They often treated Gates as WR in those situations
When the Chargers went 3 WR with Gates, the Dolphins predominantly matched up with their dime package, with Culver the third safety

The Dolphins utilize Smith as if he is a shutdown corner: A high percentage of press man coverage, often with no help over the top – They show tremendous confidence in him

  • 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.
