Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Thirteen 12/7/09 Notes

COACHING TAPE – WEEK 13

CARDS OFFENSE V. VIKINGS DEFENSE

Sapp again started at CB in place of the injured Winfield
What was immediately evident was the Cards gave DE Allen a lot to think about: On 5 and 7 step drops, they always had a second body to his side, whether it was a TE or a back
Cards did not match up LT Bridges on Allen one-on-one; Depending on the Vikings DL alignment, there were times LG Wells helped Bridges on Allen
The hat on the Cards OL was worn by RT Brown, He often was matched one-on-one with Edwards and Robison as a result of the focus on Allen
Allen was the Vikings nickel corner, aligned over the slot – In the Cards 3 WR sets, that was predominantly Boldin

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    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. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups.
