Matchup: Dunta vs. Randy
 
Matchup: Dunta Robinson against Randy Moss

This is a serious matchup, and Dunta's A game better be in full effect. After doing an excellent job against Porter last week, he faces the most dangerous reciever in the NFL.

So guys, of course we'll see a LOT of double teams, but how do you think Dunta will hold up?

I think, athletically, he'll hang in there just fine. Robinson is fast, jumps well, looks to have good instincts, and has good hands. Plus, he closes very fast and cuts sharply. Moss is a veteran receiver who will get his, though. If the Texans provide solid safety help, I think Robinson can keep Moss in check -- that's a relative term, however.

I say we go with only 9 guys on offense, so we can use the other two as constant blitzers on a 13 man defense. :thumbup

I think the Vikes would be licking their chops if they thought the Texans were going to match a rookie DB up against Moss.

That is an obvious mismatch. I look at this as a real problem area. If the Texans aren't able to get a pass rush, Culpepper has time and well it'll be a problem.

They will double-team him and while I don't think he'll be shut out if they can contain him well that's all you can ask for. I think Capers is a good enough coach that's he's dealt with this before. After all Marvin Harrison is a pretty darn good receiver and they play them twice a year.

This is a team you don't want to play catch with though. They are capable of putting up big offensive numbers.

I think the Texans' secondary matches up fairly well against Minnesota. The Texans will generally try to matchup Glenn on the #2 WR, i think- when they are able to double Moss with Robinson and Coleman. The real problem will be when unique motion and packages create situations where Moss is singled or running through a zone of LBs and Safeties, or, when the play has broken down and Culpepper is scrambling around... I think the result of those plays, along with turnovers will determine whether we win this one or not.

Dunta and Aaron both have the speed to run with Moss, so while I'm cautious I'm not totally worried about between the 20s. I'm more concerned about how we're going to stop Moss in the red zone where height will really come into play.

Who is their starting RB for this week? I want to say Moe Williams, but I could have just made that up in the back of my brain. Bennett and Smith are both out so if we can stop the run without committing too much up front we might be able to get away with more coverage on the WRs/more blitzers to pressure Culpepper..

gwallaia 10-05-2004 04:43 PM

The defensive line and the linebackers can help Dunta by getting some pressure on Culpepper.

WWJD 10-05-2004 04:53 PM

I've seen Moss make plays with DB's step for step with him and draped all over him. The guy is a monster receiver. I would not discount the Texans DB's ever but he can make anybody look silly.

The key is pressure on the QB. It all starts with him. And he's LB size so they better get a helmet on him and often.

Should be a fun game.

HJam72 10-05-2004 05:33 PM

Only problem is the DBs will be so sore by Sunday they won't be able to play, lol.

Culpepper has been sacked as follows Cowboys-2, Eagles-4 & Bears-4 and interestingly in those games has fumbled Cowboys-1, Eagles-2 & Bears-2.

Walker and Babin just need to tool their replacement right tackle for 4 sacks and 2 fumbles. Sounds easy doesn't it?

Did I miss something? Won't the matchup more likely be Moss Vs. Glenn? Did Capers say they were going to play Dunta on him.. I hope not.

BuffSoldier 10-05-2004 07:19 PM

dont you think AG will be covering Moss, I have to say I would trust him more than any rookie

Look at the matchup on the main board. Glenn is on Burleson.

TheTim5125 10-05-2004 07:55 PM

I think colemen will play some single coverage on moss from his safety position...

texan279 10-05-2004 08:59 PM

If we double team Moss the entire game it will just open up the rest of their passing game.

Vikingstw 10-05-2004 09:04 PM

Most likely you will have to double team him like every other team we play, cause if you dont expect him to have a big day. Thats what makes us dangerous you double moss we throw to Cambell, Burleson, or Robinson. If you play your safties deep on Moss's side we run the right. Its hard to defend us but if you get constant pressure on Pepp it will shut down big bombs. I think that will be the key to beating us Pressure Pressure and more Pressure.

he was a 1st round nfl draft pick. He knows when to step up his game. Instinct will take over for Dunta and I bet he has a big day.

It will still be Randy Moss vs. a rookie...look how Gallery played in the game against us last week, and he was the second overall pick.

HJam72 10-05-2004 09:23 PM

I'm sticking with the 13 men on defense idea. :popcorn:
