I really think that's the gist of it; he's just not that good anymore and all the hype coming out of camp was just that: hype. He's taking dives when he sees contact coming, short arms passes and doesn't make extra effort on balls that used to be catchable for him. At some point, his value as a decoy will evaporate. Then what? In the meantime, we have 2 high round draft picks not even activated. Some say that's a tribute to our depth, but when your first rounder isn't even good enough to suit up........but that's a different topic. All I can say is that his play and "rapport" with Alex is 180 degrees from what we were led to believe from camp.
WRONG WRONG WRONG
What we heard in training camp was that Moss was far and away the best receiver at making the DB's look bad. They just didn't know how to cover him because Moss can make plays 1 on 1 when the QB has half a brain
WE KNOW Alice doesn't have half a brain to play QB in this league. I saw Rodgers make a throw yesterday between 5 defenders to lead a receiver open in the endzone. I know Alice will never do this. But to throw Moss the ball ONCE is not good enough. We need to take a few shots per game, we need to complete a few shots per game. We need to do this because the playoffs will not be filled with teams like the Jets and we will lose just like last year bedcause our QB likes to hold the ball.
PS-- granted, Crabs and Manningham are playing quite well, and by the end of the year our passing chemistry with them may lead us beyond what our difficiences with Moss will lead us
in Addendum, regardless that we won handily, if Kap can get it closer to Moss 50 yards downfield covered by 3 people than Alice can at all, then this is bad
