Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 10/26/09 Notes

COWBOYS OFFENSE V. FALCONS DEFENSE

Cowboys opened the game with “22” personnel, Austin the only WR – Falcons DL slanted, and immediately exposed the slow-footed and un-athletic Cowboys OL
Falcons again slanted on the second play: DE Bierman beat RT Colombo to the inside and tackled Barber for -1 yds
Interesting that on the first 3rd + long on the first series the Falcons rushed 3 and dropped 8 (out of 3-3-5 personnel); The Falcons did it again on the second 3rd + long of the game, on the Cowboys second series – The Cowboys did not get a first down on either play: An incomplete pass, and a Romo scramble
Williams 16 yds on quick slant on second quarter FG drive came out of “13” personnel (1 back and 3 TEs), That dictated single high safety coverage
Austin 59 yd TD came on 1st + 10 out of “21”, straight “I” formation, Austin slot right with Williams split wide – Falcons zone blitz with CB [...]

    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 […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]
