Do we know who Dunta Robinson will be paired up with in today's game?Will it most likely be Hines Ward since he is their best receiver?Definately would love to see Dunta against Hines Ward one on one!

he will probably switch between Burress and Ward when they are in their base formation and will probably go up against Randle El in nickel formation...

This is a good matchup for Robinson. The Texans will be able to view if he is physical enough to match up with the best blocking receiver in the league (Ward), strong enough to go against someone with the size of Burress, and quick enough to handle someone with the quickness of Randle El.....This should be good!

Hopefully he'll go against everyone today. They really have different types of receivers in Pittsburgh. Hines Ward is a physical receiver, Plaxico Burress is a tall athletic and fast receiver, and Randle-El is a pure speedster. It should give him a good taste of what it's going to be like in the NFL week in and week out. Hopefully Robinson will hold his own but even if he doesn't this will be his most valuable lesson this week.
