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

  • Week 7 story lines October 17, 2014
    Here are all the story lines I’m following for fantasy in Week Seven.  N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2)  Who will carry the load at RB for the Patriots? You’d have to think this week it will be Brandon Bolden, since James White is inactive and Jonas Gray was just signed off the practice squad today and is active. Can Bandon LaFell keep it up and emerge a […]
