Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Eight 11/6/09 Notes

CARDS OFFENSE V. PANTHERS DEFENSE

Rookie Martin started at FS for the Panthers, Munnerlyn and Wilson were the nickel and dime corners versus the Cards 4 WR personnel packages
In the Panthers nickel package, Marshall moved inside over the slot, amd Munnerlyn played on the outside
First thing I noticed was the press position played by the Panthers corners on the Cards WRs, They challenged the Cards receivers at the line of scrimmage – A lot of man coverage concepts

Panthers defense played with an aggressive mentality, They looked fast and proactive

If you have a draft and are loo […]

  • The latest projections August 30, 2015
    Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game. 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.
