Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 10/22/09 Notes

BEARS OFFENSE V. FALCONS DEFENSE

Bears pass game featured quick drops, with the ball coming out of Cutler’s hands fast; Protect an average pass blocking OL
Bears passing game very controlled and managed, They didn’t attack downfield very much and when they did they did not protect very well
Forte looked slow, Did not see much lateral quickness, Did not change direction or stop and start with much decisiveness – No juice
Cutler looks down-the-gun-barrel, He’s oblivious to pressure – He’s a big time thrower, as gifted as any passer in the NFL
Falcons zone blitzed on consecutive plays (final play of first quarter, first play of second quarter): Bennett 21 yds, Knox 23 yd TD – Knox TD was a great read by Cutler, and a great throw; Knox beat the press coverage of CB Houston

The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    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). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]
