Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Nine 11/10/09 Notes

COLTS OFFENSE V. TEXANS DEFENSE

Colts personnel approach on the first series was 3 WR, with Collie in the slot and Clark aligned on the LOS in a conventional TE position – Texans matched up with their nickel personnel, with rookie CB Quin over the slot on Collie
In the 3 WR package, with Clark on the LOS, he worked inside on LB Cushing; While Cushing didn’t necessarily play Clark man-to-man, he had to match up based on matchup zone concepts
Colts a fast no huddle in this game to maintain the matchup of Clark on Cushing, Manning did not want the Texans to have time to substitute
Colts a very controlled pass game; Texans played predominantly zone coverage and Manning attacked the short voids in the zones, including taking advantage of the check downs that were there

  • 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 […]
