Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Thirteen 12/2/09 Notes

CHARGERS OFFENSE V. CHIEFS DEFENSE

Chargers again ran the “Wildcat” with Tomlinson taking the direct snap, They aligned in an unbalanced OL
Gates 19 yd TD in the first quarter: Chargers got Gates matched on LB Belcher in the short middle, Gates ran the “jerk” route
Belcher, Johnson and Walters were again the LBs in the Chiefs nickel package, Hali was the only starting LB who played in the nickel
Gates a real matchup nightmare when the Chargers align in 3×1 or 3×2 empty sets and Gates is the #3 receiver on the inside; Normally he gets matched on linebackers out of those sets in the short to intermediate middle of the field
Gates 15 yd TD came out of 3×2 empty set but the Chargers had base personnel on the field, so the Chiefs stayed base; Chiefs “quarters” coverage, which is a predominant league trend in the red zone – ILB Mays jumped Jackson on the underneath route, Gates cleanly up to S McGraw

In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]

  • 8/17 projection update August 17, 2014
    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games.
