Raiders | Team Will Use Big Nickel a lot

Fri, 23 Sep 2005 16:53:38 -0700

The Oakland Raiders will probably play a lot of their "big nickel" alignment for the third straight game during their Week 3 contest because the Philadelphia Eagles like to spread out the field and do a lot with RB Brian Westbrook. In that alignment, the safeties are Derrick Gibson and Renaldo Hill and the cornerbacks are Nnamdi Asomugha, Charles Woodson and Stanford Routt. Gibson often plays in the box like a linebacker in that alignment.

Raiders | Two to Battle at Strong Safety

Sun, 22 May 2005 17:55:37 -0700

Steve Corkran, reports for the Sporting News, the Oakland Raiders are expecting a two man race between safeties Derrick Gibson and Marques Anderson to see who becomes the team's starting strong safety. Gibson is returning from a shoulder injury that cost him the entire 2004 season. Anderson played under defensive coordinator Rob Ryan's scheme last season. Both are talented players who still haven't reached their potential. Gibson is a big hitter and fast. Anderson is also a big hitter. Both players struggle with pass coverage. It looks like this battle will go neck and neck until the end of training camp when one of them will emerge as the starter.
