Shake bake nothing. Acho in full stride, moss jukin sideways. Acho and Porche 911 left in dust as moss hyper-accelerates up field. Haters gonna have a hard time explaining the too old/slow mantra. To bad they don't use Moss to beat good teams. Hopefully Gore and defense get Moss his ring but getting spanked by good QB/defense in playoffs more likely this year because of inability to loosen up 2nd level of D when Moss not on the field(which is most of the game).
can't keep randy a "secret" lol but i get your point
This secret thinking is backwards. Jimmy Raye was the best at it. You don't keep players secrets. You force defenses to over think and spread them out not knowing where the ball may go. That may actually open up moss even more. Remember NYG and SEA practically dared us to throw to randy. We did not.
Randy Moss, San Francisco 49ers (1st, YpRR of 2.90)
His twist out of two tackles and burst of speed to put him in the end zone on "Monday Night Football" will have piqued the interest of many fantasy owners. But where has Moss been the rest of the year? The inordinate amount of coverage given to him during 49ers broadcasts followed by low numbers in the box scores has led many to think that Moss is a spent force. The truth is that while San Francisco doesn't use him very much (32 percent of snaps), he's the most productive wideout in the league when he plays.
He's the 49ers' receiver of choice in single-WR packages (22 personnel predominantly), from which they pass only 42 percent of the time -- which means he's blocking almost as often as he's running routes. When he does get out in a pattern, however, he's very dangerous. Maybe that knowledge, combined with his touchdown against the Cardinals, will result in him getting more targets.
I can think of no better exit for Randy Moss' spectacular if contentious career than helping the 49ers team win an NFC Championship Game, especially if it's against the Green Bay Packers. Here, at Candlestick Park.
And I think he knows. He is playing for his legacy now. Not how many throws he gets per game, or many yards after catch. The twilight is gleaming, so why not go out in glory? It's the same reason Peyton Manning is getting up every day and working out for the Broncos. These guys don't need the money or getting knocked to the ground.
These are athletes, competitors. They want the glory, the acknowledgement that they are the best.
My opinion: Randy Moss only went to one Super Bowl, and he lost. He wants a win.
