Default 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.

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.

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

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..

According to the matchup page, it's rookie Mewelde Moore starting in the Vikings backfield.

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.

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

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.

I saw dunta in the texans game against the cowboys and he OWNED Meshawn. I like him very well, better than hall at this point. But you got to be relistict he is playin against Randy Moss, hes goin to take advantage of the Rookie if he has a great game stopping moss in the redzone and whatnot i'll be very surprised. He's gonna have a long day.

Dunta against Moss... That would be a nightmare.. Moss is a awesome player and Dunta, who is very good, does not have the experience to cover Moss. I think Glenn would wrap him up tho.. I could work with a Glenn cover with Dunta or Coleman backup...
