    I no the games not for a couple weeks but I'am excited bout this match-up, especially if it's going to be 1 on 1 with no saftey help. I wonder if there going the usual route with Nhamdi him and the WR with no saftey help over the top. I know Nhamdi's the best CB in the NFL but ill take Moss in single coverage over anybody. Whats your guys take ?

    Steelers first, though.

    I think both of them will win some battles one on one, Nhamdis awesome but Moss is just as good at his position, there going to be matched up one on one all day you have to take shots with Moss no matter whos covering him imo.

    Well, in that situations we could either take Moss vs. Nnamdi OR the other 10 Patriots vs. the other 10 Raiders. So yeah, we'll be staying away from Nnamdi.

    Cassel is the QB and we know he isn't very effective using Moss so I say Asomugha wins. Otherwise, Mo$$ would win.

    I don't know about that.
    It seems to me that those guys(Cassel and Moss) are just starting to jell.

    There is a misconception about Asomugha - that his talent is why no one ever throws at him. He is a great player. But that is not the reason people stay away from him completely.

    They stay away from him because of the complete lack of talent of the other 10 he plays with. He's the only guy on that team who can hurt you so why give him a chance when you can move the ball at will without challenging him.

    Teams go into the Raider game fully willing to exclude their top pass catching threat from the game plan because they know despite it the Raiders still give up 355 yards a game, 160 of it on the ground at a rate of 4.7 yards per carry.

    Cassel isn't very effective at using Moss when he's double covered (well, he's not Brady esque at it. It's not like he and Moss were doing nothing...Moss is on pace for over 1000 yards). When a team finally chose to single cover Moss, he and Cassel just blew up for 125 yards and 3 TD's.

    If Asomugha does cover Moss one on one, Moss will have a big game. He's too good to stop one on one, even when you are the best corner in the league. The offensive line has been blocking real well lately as well, so Moss should get a pretty good amount of time to get open.

    I would take Moss against any current corner in the league. With the rules these days the WR has a major advantage. It might be a closer matchup with Cassel, but had Brady been in those 2 would have a field day with Moss in single coverage.

    I hear Asomugha is a Great CB indeed in the Champ Bailey mold. But didn't Champ Bailey have help over the Top countless times vs Moss? Even at 31 Moss is a Freak with his size/speed combo. Based on last weeks Game i think it's fair to say the Cassel/Moss combo have arrived.

    Moss is a physical freak of nature I'd take him over any CB.

    I'd pick Moss over Aso, but that's not to diminish Aso, but a nod to the reality that the rules simply favor the receiver THAT MUCH. Even average receiver will catch balls against better CBs, simply because the rules allow it.

    That has to be taken into consideration when make that kind of comparison
  14. Good point! Why throw to their best player when you can exploit the weakness of the rest of the team? With that said, I like that Raiders CB, but nobody can guard Moss one on one. CB's may have the speed to keep up with Moss but they will lose 9 out of 10 times to a jump ball in the endzone. CB's may be able to contain WR's like Moss and Burress in the open field, but when their offenses get close to the redzone, it's virtually impossible to guard them one on one.

    great point and great post.

    but i still think he's passed Champ as the best Corner in the league.

    the guy is frickin awesome.

    A well placed throw and a well run route gives the corner no chance.

    That said, it is a salivating line up.

    It would be even better to see them lining up across from one another in camp ;)

    Law was right on moss at the end of the jets game was all over him and moss sit got the ball. Corners can only cover a receiver they can no longer hit him until he is safe so in the redzone if the QB puts it wherever the CB isn't a guy like moss will win every time. Asomugha can only cover half of Moss, so I think moss will own him in the endzone after Welker takes most of the grabs in the open field to march us to the redzone.
