Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 10/14/09 Notes

TEXANS OFFENSE V. CARDS DEFENSE

Schaub’s lack of arm strength really noticeable when he throws to the outside
Slaton looked like he was bracing for contact on some of his runs, Not the same dynamic runner he was a year ago – He looked stiff and mechanical in his lateral movement
Schaub a pure timing and rhythm intermediate passer who must be protected

    I have been a little behind lately spending more time on more important things, and I missed two weeks ago also due to the holiday, but here are raw notes showing all if not most of Week 14’s “Just missed it” plays. If you’re looking for perfect grammar and punctuation, don’t read this. WR Mike Brown drops a TD pass on opening drive of game. Maurice Jones-Dr […]
