Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Fifteen 12/21/09 Notes

COLTS OFFENSE V. JAGUARS DEFENSE

Mathis back at LCB for the Jaguars, Middleton was the nickel corner over the slot
Allen started at LB for the injured and inactive Ingram
LB Smith at times aligned at DE in the nickel package; Jaguars clearly groping for any kind of pass rush – Smith often dropped out into coverage as part of zone exchange and zone blitz concepts
Jaguars blitzed consistently on the Colts first possession, mostly out if their 3-3-5 package with Smith at DE – Zone blitz and zone exchange concepts
Jaguars very multiple with pressures and coverages on the Colts first possession, Tried to show Manning different looks
Collie 23 yd TD was an unbelievable throw by Manning: It was “cover 2” with nickel corner Middleton locked man-to-man on slot receiver Collie; Manning threw the ball to the back shoulder of Collie, which was the only place the ball could be thrown

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups.
