Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 10/23/09 Notes

BRONCOS OFFENSE V. CHARGERS DEFENSE

Rookie Ellison started at S for the Chargers
ILB Burnett not very physical, A runner and pass defender more than a run defender
Broncos do a lot in their pass game with 3×1 sets, which includes bunch formations; It’s difficult to play man-to-man to the 3 receiver side in 3×1 sets, so that helps define the coverage for Orton before the snap – Great coaching by McDaniels to help Orton

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out? There’s some value in the #2 spot, but it’s a revolving door with Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Does Owen Daniels continue to be a large factor? He should because he’s a huge part of this passing […]

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
