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

  • 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.
