Without a doubt you are correct Ironcity. Moss will be a job for one of the big boys - you have to accept that a talent such as Moss will make catches against you - all the Pats will try and do is make sure that the damage these catches make is minimal.
For example, we had 1st year undrafted rookie Randall Gay covering Terrell Owens in the SB - and sure T.O had a statistically impressive day (even more so when you factor in his injury) but the fact is that NE managed to contain his threat by ensuring he didn't make ANY game changing plays.
