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

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s.

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
