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
Long played both DE positions, but primarily on at RDE

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 […]
