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 [...]

    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).

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]
