Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Ten 11/19/09

CHARGERS OFFENSE V. EAGLES DEFENSE

Gates looked very smooth and fluid; He’s a “Joker” who aligns all over the formation and wins against corners as well as linebackers and safeties – Gates gives the Chargers personnel and formation flexibility
Babin got meaningful snaps at DE in the Eagles nickel package; At times they moved Cole to LDE, with Babin at RDE – Babin also played in the base 4-3, at both DE positions
Chargers used the “Wildcat” with Naanee taking the direct snap in the shotgun; Also used the “Wildcat” with Tomlinson
Tolbert 20 yd TD catch came against Eagles “cover zero” blitz; Tolbert contacted and controlled S Mikell on the blitz, then ran the quick angle route inside; MLB Gocong overreacted outside, and was out of position to react to Tolbert

    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.
