Week Three Matchup Podcast Notes

Each week, John Hansen and Adam Caplan break down all the games in the matchup podcast with our NFL Analyst, Greg Cosell. You can listen to the podcasts here, but also read below for an overview of Cosell’s thoughts.

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens

Ravens:

The Ravens will go back to ground control in this game. Browns have a good game plan for long-yardage situations, so the Ravens will probably run the ball vs. the base defense of the Browns.
There are times where QB Joe Flacco doesn’t get a feel for the middle of the field, and there are certain kinds of games where he will still struggle but will still be a good QB.

Browns:

Not really sure why the Browns are using RB Peyton Hillis as much as they are since RB Jerome Harrison is a more dynamic explosive runner.
Browns are trying to win games with their defense.

Cincinnati Bengals at Carolina Panthers

Bengals:

QB Carson Palmer did not play well last week, and it doesn’t look like the ball is coming out like it was before his injury a few years ago.
The Panther defense can cause some problems for Palmer, which could lead to RB Cedric [...]

Cosell’s Film Room Report: An Update

When it comes to Greg Cosell’s weekly coaching tape notes, we know most of our subscribers feel that they’re among the most invaluable content we provide, and with good reason. It’s something that literally no other site out there can provide, and we’re proud of that fact and we thank Greg for it.

That’s why we’ve decided to make a change: Greg’s coaching tape articles no longer will be posted in the Staff Blog — instead, they’ll now play a prominent role in the subscriber homepage section of the site. You can check out the Week Two roundup here. The article, titled “Cosell’s Film Room,” can be found under the General Articles tab and also in the weekly content schedule. We’ll create a new page for every week, and then we’ll update the file when Greg sends in his daily musings.

Since this is such a unique part of what we offer, we wanted to make everyone aware of the switch.

  • 12-team NFFC draft results (from 8/30) August 31, 2014
    Here are the results of the 12-team PPR 3rd round reversal NFFC 20-round draft I participated in last night in New York City. I was pretty pleased with the draft and felt I was generally ahead of the curve. While I did have to pay a premium for some players early, I did get solid value for others later. In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]
