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

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

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out? There’s some value in the #2 spot, but it’s a revolving door with Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Does Owen Daniels continue to be a large factor?

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
