Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Sixteen 12/29/09 Notes

BEARS OFFENSE V. VIKINGS DEFENSE

Kennedy started at DT in place of the inactive P. Williams
Sapp was again the Vikings nickel corner
Vikings at times utilized a 3-3-5 package against Bears 3 WR personnel, That kept Brinkley on the field
Clark 26 yds on 3rd + 3 came with both Clark and Olsen on the field, Vikings stayed with base 4-3 personnel
Olsen utilized as a “Joker”, aligned all over the formation; He dictates matchups based on personnel package and formation – Olsen’s ability to align as a WR allowed the Bears to utilize “22” personnel as a major part of their offense
Forte no juice to his movement, Methodical but with one speed, No burst or acceleration

Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • 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 […]
