Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 10/13/09 Notes

BRONCOS OFFENSE V. PATRIOTS DEFENSE

Broncos opened the game in the “Wildcat” (“Wild Horses”) formation with Moreno in the shotgun, and Orton split left; Patriots a lot of defensive movement before the snap to adjust: Patriots defended it well, but S Meriweather missed an easy tackle for no gain: Moreno 12 yds on “Counter”
Broncos base runs of the “Wild Horses” formation: Counter, Inside zone, “Wam” concept
Moreno a tough downhill runner with some lateral agility and quickness, Limited burst and acceleration’
Wilfork played DT in the Patriots predominant 4-3 front; He was dominant
S McGowan a tough physical player: Strong in the box versus run, and he showed the ability to match up man-to-man on the TE

I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015

It’s a great idea for the […]
