Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 10/5/09 Notes

COACHING TAPE – WEEK 4

PATRIOTS OFFENSE V. RAVENS DEFENSE

What again stood out was how well Suggs plays the run, Much more physical than people believe
Patriots began the game with Maroney as the lead back, not Taylor: Why? Taylor quicker in the hole, and more explosive downhill
Brady still not comfortable in the pocket: Too much movement, Not still and settled, A little quick and hurried
Ravens attacked Brady with a good percentage of blitz: Smart tactic because both Brady and the Patriots overall passing game is out of rhythm

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. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games?

  • 30 slam-dunk fantasy starters for the playoffs December 2, 2014
    Here is a list of 30 no-brainer starters for the fantasy playoffs. I would imagine that 95% of fantasy players (or more) should start these players the next 2-3 weeks (if healthy) no matter what.
