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 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.

Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
