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

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”

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 […]
