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

You’d have to think this week it will be Brandon Bolden, since James White is inactive and Jonas Gray was just signed off the practice squad today and is active. Can Bandon LaFell keep it up and emerge a […]

  • Week 6 story lines October 9, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following this week in the NFL… Indianapolis (3-2) at Houston (3-2) Can the Colts maintain their high level of play with 2 starters on the OL out tonight? Can Trent Richardson bounce back from a poor game last week against a tough Raven defense? Can Dwayne Allen score yet again and remain a huge factor? He’s being moved all o […]

  • Week 5 story lines October 3, 2014
    Here are 88 story lines I’ll be following in Week 5 . Minnesota (2-2) at Green Bay (2-2) Will the Vikings continue to play like they did last week? It wasn’t a typical Norv Turner offense, more like Seattle’s with Russell Wilson. Teddy Bridgewater was smart about not exposing himself to hits, but he did get banged up in only one start and he might miss the g […]
