Coach Talk
Minor Prophets
Identifying mismatches is a huge key to success in football. We really took that to heart this week by tripling Unstoppable at the wide receiver position (39 points to 13).
Unstoppable
Well, we can't really complain about a shortage of opportunities this time, can we? As a group, our four pass-catchers (three WR and one TE) were targeted a whopping 21 times in Week 9. With only 13 total receptions, that group may have some chemistry issues.
