Per KFFL:

Raiders | Team to use Asomugha against T. Gonzalez in Week 13
Fri, 28 Nov 2008 16:31:10 -0800 The Oakland Raiders (http://www.kffl.com/team/28/nfl) are planning to utilize CB Nnamdi Asomugha (http://www.kffl.com/player/5969/nfl) in primary coverage against Kansas City Chiefs (http://www.kffl.com/team/21/nfl) TE Tony Gonzalez (http://www.kffl.com/player/1001/nfl) in Week 13.







I hope Tony can man-handle him. Plus, this is going to give D-Bowe a huge edge. I've never really seen a CB cover a TE. Does anyone know if this has worked well in the past? I mean, the size difference alone would be huge. Plus, Tony is used to getting hit off the line, so Asomugha can't really throw him off of his game using force.

Sad thing is he is about the only one that will probably give Tony some decent coverage. They'll more than likely double team with Asomugha and one of the LBs.

Well, considering how much Thigpen has been throwing to Tony lately, that's probably a good strategy. The only question is whether we can use it to our advantage and hit Bowe for some deep passes.

As long as he doesn't drop them! :shake: Seems to be happening quite a bit.

So that means Bowe will have a great game.

Bowe must start in all my fantasy leagues. Tough match-up for Tony G :(, but he finds a way to get open consistently it seems.

Bowe still managed 90 yards against Oakland the last time. Tony will do fine.

Tony should have another big game. He really is moving up the records list.

They will call at least 1 offensive pass interference after TG gets mugged 10 yards down field

Every team should already be doing this. Without Tony, our receiving corps is talented but extremely inconsistent.

I'm always amused when lurkers such as yourself pick seemingly mundane and everyday types of topics to chime in on. :)

I guess I'll wait for some really profound threads like who Tyler Thigpen is dating, etc. to get my post count up. Then I might be able to comment on, dare I hope, Chiefs football related threads.

Haha...just giving you crap man. I'm mostly fascinated by how many lurkers we have around here, so when someone like yourself suddenly decides to comment, I'm intrigued about what draws you out of hiding.

Regardless, glad you're speaking up. Welcome to the non-lurker side of the Planet. :thumb:

I remember when Hasty shutdown Sharpe at Arrowhead. Sharpe's only catch that afternoon was while being covered by and LB, although that catch was a touchdown.

Yup, he was actually pouting on the field, it was classic watching him walk through his routes.

Well until they blitzed Hasty and they scored the game winner to Sharpe over the LB

Then the next day all the Donkey fans crowing about Sharpe's greatness after Hasty had shut him down.
