Even though we have some great corners
in Charles Woodson and Al Harris...

I have seen that the one weakness
that both corners have..are bigger
physical receivers.

They do GREAT against speedy, and
light receivers. (Chad Johnson, Marvin Harrison, etc)..

But against physical receivers..they have problems.

Charles Woodson benches 350-400lbs(Saw him do it w/the raiders)
but as strong as he is...T.O. is STRONGER...

In past 49er-Raider games..I'd seen T.O. toss woody
w/one arm ...like Reggie White used to do w/350 lb lineman..

And Al Harris...we know got his azz handed to him by
Plaxico Burress..who's nowhere NEAR as strong as T.O.

SO what do we do to stop this behemoth?

Put a linebacker on him?

Nick Barnett is strong enough to be physical w/T.O...
But is not fast enough on his feet to cover T.O.

Our safeties are not strong enough either.

We may have to double...but that falls into T.O.'s hands...

The front four NEEDS to pressure ROMO so T.O.'s timing is off...

I'll say this much. With Terrel Owens' YAC capability, our safeties NEED to improve their angles before Sunday.

It all comes down to the time Romo has to throw the ball. That offense can honestly get by with T.O. and Witten being double teamed. They still beat teams like that. We need to blitz to get to Romo. The Cowboy offensive line is the most massive in the NFL and will give Romo enough time if we're only rushing four. That's my honest belief: we need to do something EXTRA to get to Romo. If Romo has time, we're in trouble. Never mind they have a great one-two punch with Barber/Jones.

I can't wait for this weekend, but we can't play like the youngest team in FB. We can't have stupid penalties, punter-catching-the-longsnap errors, or key drops. To beat Dallas we need to make them have one of those bad days.

Let's hope the Eagles bruisem a little tonight!

I agree evad, I think you'll see the eagles blitz all night and maybe our D coordinator will watch the game.

We could always throw a microphone in the corner, that should Keep TO busy for a quarter or two.



we could also give Jessica her own suite

bump him as hard as possible right off the line ( no matter where he lines up) and give Al or whom ever some help over the top

Al can't get wound up and give Dallas yards on penalties caused by frustration like he did last year. He just can't get too tangled up with TO. If TO beats him a few times, he has to let it go and just worry about the next play.

I think the play of Kampman and KGB will be huge.. The ability to get to Romo will play a key role in the success that Woodson and Harris have against Owens and the rest of the wide outs on this dallas team. If you can get in the face of Romo and rough him up a little bit, it should alter the game big time.

All I remember about TO when we played the Cowboys last year was this:

TO goes in motion. Our secondary tries to adjust as the ball is snapped, and TO takes advantage of that moment of transferring responsibilities.

I am hoping that this will be addressed in some way.

I remember that too. This is one reason I was pissed at the DC last year. Couldn't adjust to save his life.

TO needs to get drilled a couple times early, that will bring out the teenage girl in him which we all know is there. he needs to get Bigbied, provided Bigby is finished with his cramps...take some f'ing Midol and strap it on Atari!

I dont think theres a way to stop T.o all can do is contain him u cant put a Lb on him cos t.o will just blow past them The best option imo is to double cover him EVERY play if u have some 1 bumping and running him then he has to have help if all else fails we can just injur him it worked well on A.p vs the vikes last year :)

My fondest memory of Al Harris and T.O. is when Harris flipped T.O. over his head, for a tackle a few years back. He just up-ended him after he cought the ball. It was a sweet looking play. But i am concerned about this week. I think our best shot, is if we can get Bigby covering him. Definitily not Collins. Or T.O. will be breaking tackles all day long.
