Once again, I'm of the mind that you don't fight strength vs strength, you fight strength vs weakness. Having a big, physical possession receiver can help, especially in regards to run blocking, but you beat big DB's through quickness, you have guys who go where they can't. Browner for example has relatively slow hips, he's struggled with quick speed receivers, so you utilize those shifty guys to get separation and make big plays down the field.
Think about it the other way around, if you have a big tall CB who is good in coverage but not the fastest or most fluid guy out on the field, do you want him matched up with a bigger receiver or do you want him on a smaller burner that can use their quickness and speed to get separation and get down the field in a hurry?
