2008-02-01 12:00:00 (link to chat)I simply don't understand people arguing that Randy Moss will not be a factor. The man's one of the best receivers in football; his impotence in the first playoff games is more a tip of the hat to Rashean Mathis and Antonio Cromartie than a detraction of Moss's abilities. He should be able to roast the Giant cornerbacks.
(Or from Dallas)
I will agree with you that Sam Madison and Corey Webster are not the equal of Rashean Mathis and Antonio Cromartie, although the Jaguars were actually covering Moss with Brian Williams and a safety. That's more to the point: Moss doesn't need to roast the Giants cornerbacks to be a factor. If he draws the attention of double coverage, he becomes a factor even if Tom Brady never throws him the ball. It leaves Wes Welker open, or it stops the Giants from rushing more than four. That's one of the interesting things about football: You only have 11 chess pieces to cover the other 11 chess pieces. (Aaron Schatz (Football))
