Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Ten 11/18/09 Notes

PATRIOTS OFFENSE V. COLTS DEFENSE

In the Colts nickel package, Powers played inside with Jennings on the outside
Patriots had success running the ball out of shotgun with Faulk against the Colts nickel package – Bracket and Sessions were the LBs in the nickel
Moss at his best as a vertical route runner, and a bender; He’s not a lateral receiver with agility and quickness – He runs go routes, seam routes, deep over routes (the 55 yarder v. the Colts)
Moss 55 yds was a great play: Patriots 6 OL on the field to dictate Colts base 4-3 personnel, Moss in the slot inside TE Watson, Play action with Brady under center, Moss deep over route versus “Tampa 2”, Brackett just impacted enough by play action so that Brady made the throw over the top of him

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s.

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday.
