Cosell’s Coaching Tape: Week Sixteen 12/30/09 Notes

McCoy started at WLB for the Bucs
Mack was the Bucs nickel corner, He played on the outside with Barber inside over the slot – Ruud and Heyward were the nickel LBs
Bucs showed a lot of 3-4 looks out of their base personnel with White standing up at OLB
Bucs also at times played 3-3-5 personnel as their nickel package

Meachem 30 yd TD came [...]

  • 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?

  • 30 slam-dunk fantasy starters for the playoffs December 2, 2014
    Here is a list of 30 no-brainer starters for the fantasy playoffs. I would imagine that 95% of fantasy players (or more) should start these players the next 2-3 weeks (if healthy) no matter what.
