Cosell’s Coaching Tape: 10/27/09 Notes

CARDS OFFENSE V. GIANTS DEFENSE

Giants defensive tendency is to play 2 deep to spread formations with 3 and 4 WRs, I think that’s a predictable tendency
When the Giants went with dime personnel, the 2 extra corners were Dockery and Johnson
Giants played a lot of “2 man” coverage in longer yardage situations, An excellent coverage against the Cards receivers since they do not have the speed to run away from man coverage
Wells ran downhill with power, Showed lateral quickness and change of direction – Looked like a quality NFL back
Giants played a lot of man coverage concepts, whether it was “2 man” or “man free”; That’s a good tactic to protect their safeties, since they just have areas to cover and do not have to match up – Also effective against the Cards since they do not run hardly at all out of shotgun and Warner won’t leave the pocket

  • 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?

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? He’s been basically getting to the perimeter and popping off some longer runs, but he’s also run pretty well inside. He moves very well. Can Allen Robinson continue to produce? He just missed a […]
