Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Fourteen 11/16/09 Notes

PANTHERS OFFENSE V. PATRIOTS DEFENSE

Butler and Chung played in the Patriots nickel package
First impressions watching Moore: A little impatient in the pocket, not comfortably going through his progressions, bailing mentally and physically a little early; Tendency to be a little wild high, missing open receivers
Patriots base defense in this game was the 3-4; They went to a 4 man DL in their nickel package
Moore threw with a low arm angle, did not come over the top; Inconsistent release point, which produces erratic accuracy
Smith 41 yd TD came out of “22” personnel with Smith the only WR, Patriots “cover 3”; Post/cross combination, a great route combination versus “cover 3” – Springs played with outside leverage versus Smith, clearly expecting inside help; Deep safety Meriweather jumped the cross, and back side CB Butler carried the cross too far, leaving Springs with no help

The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 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 […]
