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

  • 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.
