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
Bengals defense more aggressive with blitz in the red zone area, They even played some “cover zero”
Vikings clearly more base personnel packages, with “12” and “21” personnel – [...]

    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. It’s a great idea for the […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]
