Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Fourteen 12/14/09 Notes

COACHING TAPE – WEEK 14

VIKINGS OFFENSE V. BENGALS DEFENSE

With Harvin inactive, Lewis was the Vikings 3rd WR
MLB Jones stood out: Recognition and instincts in the run game, What he lacks is change of direction as a pass defender
S Ndukwe very active in the run game as an add-in box defender in the first quarter
Vikings often utilized Shiancoe in the slot in base personnel packages, Another way to use 3 WR formations
Bengals a lot of man coverage concepts, especially in long yardage situations
Favre ability to extend plays a big positive in the red zone, Often breaks down coverage discipline: Rice 9 yd TD
Maualuga must do a more consistent job of contact, control and release; Tendency to run around blocks rather than take them on
Bengals defense looked disciplined and fast, Not a lot of mental mistakes

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]
