Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Ten 11/20/09 Notes

SAINTS OFFENSE V. RAMS DEFENSE

Bush not very instinctive as a runner, He doesn’t really have an innate feel for working in traffic and confined areas, He’s a gaping hole runner
Brees first interception came off a zone blitz, Brees correctly threw hot to TE Thomas but LB Vobora did a great job flying to his coverage responsibility and hit Thomas just as the ball got there
Eckel was the FB when the Saints utilized 2 back sets
Rams treated Bush as a receiver, not as a running back: When the Saints had Bush on the field with a TE and 3 WRS, or a second back and 3 WRs, the Rams played their dime personnel package with S Dahl as a LB – The Rams even did this inside the 5 yd line: Bush 3 yd TD out of shotgun

  • 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. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]
