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 7 story lines October 17, 2014
    Here are all the story lines I’m following for fantasy in Week Seven.  N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2)  Who will carry the load at RB for the Patriots? You’d have to think this week it will be Brandon Bolden, since James White is inactive and Jonas Gray was just signed off the practice squad today and is active. Can Bandon LaFell keep it up and emerge a […]

  • Week 6 story lines October 9, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following this week in the NFL… Indianapolis (3-2) at Houston (3-2) Can the Colts maintain their high level of play with 2 starters on the OL out tonight? Can Trent Richardson bounce back from a poor game last week against a tough Raven defense? Can Dwayne Allen score yet again and remain a huge factor? He’s being moved all o […]

  • Week 5 story lines October 3, 2014
    Here are 88 story lines I’ll be following in Week 5 . Minnesota (2-2) at Green Bay (2-2) Will the Vikings continue to play like they did last week? It wasn’t a typical Norv Turner offense, more like Seattle’s with Russell Wilson. Teddy Bridgewater was smart about not exposing himself to hits, but he did get banged up in only one start and he might miss the g […]
