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

EAGLES OFFENSE V. COWBOYS DEFENSE

Eagles continued to get FB Weaver more involved in the run game as a feature back; He ran 8 times, the same as last week versus the Giants, almost all out of single back sets
McNabb often does not pull the trigger on stick throws into tight windows against zone coverage; He has a tendency to wait until the receiver breaks into the open void, and by then it’s too late – McNabb is not an anticipator
Cowboys align Ratliff at DT in their 4 man DL in their nickel package, and he has quickness and explosion as a pass rusher
Maclin beat “quarters” coverage with a post route early in the second quarter, He ran by CB Jenkins and S Hamlin was slow to respond; The problem was Ware beat LT Herremans (who was slow off the ball) to the outside and hit McNabb as he delivered – It could have been a TD

  • 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 […]

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
