i know the news of moss is encouraging and i am extremelly excited y what im hearing its just that it seems in practice he seemed to impress wherever he was but in 2010 in a span of like 9 games he only had like 8 receptions for 80 yards or something like that

Your comment could be easily interpreted either way. Thank you for clarifying.
Moss should be on the field a lot. He should not be considered the no. 1 because he is one- dimensional.

i think that is exactly the reason why he will do a good job for us. He was not motivated and was not excited a couple years ago..i think he is excited about our team, he respects our coaches like when he was in new england. I also think he, like most wide outs, has a huge ego and does not want to be remembered for 2010.If nothing else he is being a good mentor to the kids. we never got that from brayon edwards .I have warmed up to having him on our team especially when i see and hear about the things he is doing.Plus he is blowing off the media and I am way ok with that
even if Moss only put up the numbers he did in 2010 (28/393/5), he would be a worthy addition. Those numbers would put him at 3rd, 3rd, and 2nd on the 2011 49ers.

If Moss puts up numbers close to any of his 3 full NE seasons, we'll win 14 games in the regular season and coast to a SB victory.

Moss is a #1 receiver in every sense of the word. He might not be our #1 target (still think that will be VD), but he brings the attitude and resume of a #1. So I think its safe to say that, today, he is our #1 WR. I hope he continues to live up to that.

Moss may be many things but "one-dimensional?" Don't think so, and if you go back and watch video of his better games you will see him going over the middle, up the sidelines and everywhere else on the field. He probably gets tagged as one-dimensional due to his speed and ability to beat DBs deep.

And even if he is 'one-dimensional' at this point of his career, it is a dimension that the 49ers offense has been lacking for quite some time. So I am all for it
^^ we havent had a deep threat since 2006 with lloyd... anyone who says anything else is just fooling themsellves


we had no one who can consistantly strech the field now we have moss and maybe aj jenkins

this will allow crabtree and VD and now manningham to work the short/underneath to middle routes where they are most effective
I wouldn't trust Moss...do not put your eggs in this basket.

We have plenty of good WRs on the team though....but truth be told, none are of Moss superstar caliber. That's not the problem with him though...it's not about talent and ability, it's about heart.

Opposing defenses will have to account for him like a number 1
Could it just be that they are purposely trying to develop a chemistry between Moss and Smith? Seems to me, based on his contract, that I'd like to know what I'm getting prior to committing any money.

i did not understand anything you said. I have no idea how to answer a question that says,,, is the team trying to develop chemistry on purpose with two people. Uh is this is bad thing. sorry I am struggling here

What sort of employment contract do they sign, where you live? We hardly broke the bank for Moss, and were at pains to pick up other receivers as well. Another poster warns us against putting all our eggs in the one basket of Moss, and you want to know what we are getting prior to paying him anything.

I don't understand either of you. Did we not sign Mario Manningham? Did we not draft AJ Jenkins in the first round? Did we not also pick up several other options including chris Owusu? And last time I checked, Crabtree is getting excellent reviews.

So I just don't see where we are putting all our eggs in one basket. And as to asking a future HoF to play for free - because we won't know what we have until we see him in action for 4-6 games - I don't think the NFL will allow this.
