Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Thirteen 12/8/09 Notes

GIANTS OFFENSE V. COWBOYS DEFENSE

Scandrick was the Cowboys nickel corner, Carpenter and James were the nickel LBs
Jenkins is the Cowboys best corner, especially in man-to-man coverage; His growth as a very good NFL corner has been evident throughout the season
Cowboys always want Ware on the open side of the offensive formation
Giants clearly tried to establish a physical presence running the ball with Jacobs; Jacobs at this point only gets what’s blocked, nothing more
Manning did not look comfortable early in the game, A little jittery and frenetic in the pocket
Cowboys a lot of man coverage concepts; Jenkins aligned predominantly in press position, while Newman’s tendency was to play 4-5 yards off the receiver
Smith at his best working from the slot, A mismatch favoring the Giants when matched against Scandrick

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out?

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
