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
Rookie CB Smith very comfortable in press position: Very patient and composed, not overreactive; Showed good quickness and change of direction mirroring receivers
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

If you have a draft and are loo […]

  • The latest projections August 30, 2015
    Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game. The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week.
