Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Fifteen 12/24/09 Notes

PANTHERS OFFENSE V. VIKINGS DEFENSE

v Moore continued to be wild high with his throws, He’s a very erratic passer with poor throwing mechanics

v Leber and Greenway were the Vikings nickel LBs, Sapp was the nickel corner over the slot

v Right now MLB Brinkley is a little hesitant and indecisive; At times he’s a lateral mover not a downhill player, at other times he works the trash well and makes tackles – There is an explosiveness to his movement

v Moore not a real confident passer at this point; That shows up in the fact that he had a tendency to be a little late with his throws, waiting to see receivers break open rather than anticipating

v Brinkley was attacked and beaten on the Hoover 1 yd TD catch, Run / pass conflict on play action at the goal line

v Martin and Moore were both used as the Panthers 3rd WR, but the Panthers did not use 3 WR personnel very often

v Panthers offense very basic and straightforward in its use of personnel and formations, Not a difficult offense to defend conceptually

v Moore average arm strength, Did not show the ability to drive the ball down the field on intermediate and vertical [...]

BENGALS OFFENSE V. CHARGERS DEFENSE

Gregory was again the nickel corner for the Chargers, aligned inside over the slot; Cooper and Dobbins were the nickel LBs, and Oliver replaced Ellison at S
Merriman, Phillips and English rotated at OLB in the base 3-4, and DE in the nickel package
Ellison an effective box safety; The closer to the line of scrimmage he is, the more valuable is – In some ways, he’s a glorified LB
Bengals continued to utilize 6 OL and unbalanced OL concepts
Ochocinco 49 yd TD came out of 6 OL personnel versus Chargers 8 in the box, single high safety; Ochocinco out-and-up versus Cromartie
If you can dictate 8 in the box, single high safety looks with personnel and formation, you can attack and break down Jammer on the perimeter
Rookie Smith played snaps at RT, predominantly in the 6 OL personnel package
Bengals pass game more proactive in this game, They threw the ball more although there were a number of snaps in which [...]

  • 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, […]

  • 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. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
