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

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. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]
