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
SS Wilson played like a LB in this game, He played predominantly in the box and was used as a blitzer
Cards played a lot of single high safety coverages, which forced Schaub to throw the ball to the outside: Excellent defensive approach, since Schaub’s weakness is throwing the ball to the perimeter
Texans do an outstanding job with their route combinations to break down anticipated coverages
Slaton showed flashes of quickness and lateral explosiveness, but they were splash plays – He wasn’t the consistent perimeter threat and tough inside runner that I thought I’d see
Brown was the Cards nickel [...]

In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games. The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
