    I watched a replay of the game looking specifically at who was covering Gates on his catches. Here they are listed:

    1) Gates catches a 7 yard pass, zone coverage, Al Wilson in the zone and makes the tackle. (DJ on other side of the field)

    2) Gates catches a slant route and drags defender with him for five yards after the catch is made. Man on Man coverage, defender is Nick Ferguson. This pass was also thrown to the weak side, Gold came in late on the stop.

    3) Flip pass in the seam. Three Broncos around him. Sam Brandon (who had the coverage) and Ian Gold are in front of him. John Lynch came up and made the tackle. DJ was covering LT in the flat on this play.

    4) Second half now. Gates makes a sliding catch for 14 yards. Zone coverage. Ian Gold in front, John Lynch behind.

    5) Gates catches a slant pass. Man on man coverage. Lenny Walls was on him. DJ is in on the tackle.

    6) Gates catches a tough pass over the middle. Makes the catch right over Al Wilson. The Bronco falling down on the play is Ian Gold.

    On nearly all of the Gates catches, DJ was in the flat covering a back out of the backfield.

      Troy,
      Nice first post!
      Looks like when DJ covered Gates he did what he needed to do!

        *just laughs at this ridiculous statement*

          A Middle Linebacker covering moss? That's old news around here, buddy. Al Wilson knocked a deep post away from Moss 2 or 3 years ago. Move along.

            Al Wilson also ran stride for stride with Marshall Faulk (when he was in his prime) down the sideline and intercepted a deep ball. Week one, MNF in 2001 if you are trying to remember when.
