Asomugha ligns up only at RCB and will primarily see Marshall on that side of the field. Marshall recently said that the Broncos just plan on playing ball and not avoiding Asomugha that often. With that said, they move Marshall all over the place anyways so he wont be matched up with Asomugha all game. One other important factor to note is that Asomugha is a fantastic COVER corner but he is not one of the best tackling CBs in the league meaning that he could have his hands full against the best YAC WR in the NFL. Asomugha whiffed on a tackle last week on Tedd Ginn and Ginn ended up taking it to the house.

This seems absolutely stupid to me that a D-coordinator would keep his best corner on one side of the field and not have him cover the best guy. If Asomugha only lines up at RCB, then why the hell would you not line your best WR up on the other side?
