I'm not just ready yet. Jacobs adds the "knock you on your a**" dimension to the run game. He's critical when we play teams like the Giants coming up because they have a good DL. He's good decoy as well for some of the running formations with Gore or Hunter in the backfield with him.
As for Moss, just being a decoy for now has opened things up for Davis, Crabs, and Manningham. Defenses have to shift 2, sometimes 3 guys to his side. There have been moments when they've left him one-on-one though which I can't understand why Alex wouldn't at least attempt throw and let him go get it but I guess its a trust thing right now. As a decoy, especially in the playoffs, Moss is critical. I'd like to see the Moss of old but if he keeps doing what he's doing for a chance at a SB ring, I'm sure he's on board with it. What other playoff team would possibly sign him anyway? I'm sure he knows that, his best shot at a SB is with us and its not like he has alot of time left in his career. With this coaching staff, maybe they are purposely holding off on going deep with him. Make teams think we won't do it, then all of a sudden in a key game, BAM!!!!!!!
