Jets Offensive Center Mawae set for Zach Arrack
| Dolphins all-star middle linebacker, Zach Thomas
Oct 21, 2000 by Mark Cannizzaro of the 'New York Post'
Rarely do professional athletics ever admit to being obsessed with an opposing athletic. Yet with Dolphins' candid middle linebacker Zach Thomas, this is the case.
Since as far back as training camp, Thomas has been thinking about, talking about - 'obsessing' about - his twice-a-season matchup with Jets' center Kevin Matwe, conceding that Mawae is his 'nemesis.'
Yesterday, with the Jets-Dolphins Monday night showdown for first place in the AFC East just three days away, Thomas conceded that he thinks about playing against Mawae 'quite a bit.' "I think he's the best center in the league," Thomas said. "But I can't get caught p in that thinking because in the past, I have, I've let it get in my mind."
Asked specifically if Mawae has 'gotten to him' in the last several outings - the Jets have won the last four meeting between the two teams, - Thomas said, "Yeah, probably. I don't think about him when we're on the field, but off the field, yes. If we beat them this week then the whole matchup thing (against Mawae) doesn't matter. If they beat us, then everybody will be thinking, 'He got me again.'"
When it was relayed to Mawae that he's gotten inside Thomas' head at times, the center said, 'If I did that's great. Then it's a little edge on my part. But Zach is going to come ready to play regardless. The guy's a Pro Bowler who's hard to defense. He can do everything on the field. He covers from sideline to sideline, and that presents a great challenge for the guys up front."
Thomas was asked what Mawae does best. "You mean when he grabs," Thomas said. "He''s got strong hands and he locks on, gets you behind the shoulder pad and holds on. They're supposed to call that but it seems they don't anymore. When it's a draw play you can't do anything but take him on. He'll just take you with him.
Mawae will mark his 98th consecutive start on Monday. Footballhistorian.com - Newspaper clipping
