Is Randy Moss a late season secret weapon ?

Yea, because he sure did look awful on that 55 yard catch.

IDK about moss, but I do think that's the case with LMJ.

LMJ probably only sees the field as a return man, barring an injury to the O skill players.

Nice pick Smith (Minn DB). Take care of those Cards.
Moss would be a weapon if smith actually knew where he was out there. he's over looked moss on a few sure TDs this season but none as glaring as that one last week, gore had time to point him out to smitha nd he still didnt see him

No wonder WRs hate playing with him.
im usually defending smith but hes blind out there sometimes when it comes to the receivers, especially moss.
Only in my dreams.....

Having a QB like Smith, who is more accurate than any of the "Elite" QBs at deep throwing... Heck, there are only 3 QBs in the top 20 in total yards more accurate than Smith in the deep ball: Carson Palmer, Cam Newton and Kevin Kolb. And even then, they are 1-2 throws above 50%. Smith sits at 50%. You want one of those guys? I didn't think so.

It's easy to be more accurate when the only deep balls you are throwing are at least a yard open. This doesn't take into account those other QB's throwing more deep balls to "covered" receivers.

Moss should have 4-5 TD's right now

1 vs GB
2 vs Minnesota - Had a for sure score on a post route to the end zone
3 vs NYG - He burned Prince Amukamara on a streak, Smith looked for Manningham
4 vs NYG - Burned Prince again on a double move, Smith checked down to Gore
5 vs Seattle - All alone in the end zone before the pick Smith threw

So why sit him if he's doing his job but Smith just uses him as a decoy for Mario, Crabs and Vernon? He is not distracting the team at all, He really wants to help out alot much like Jacobs, I'd give it till after our bye week to HOPEFULLY see some Moss exposure for td's.

That is correct but doesn't take into any other factors durning the play.

Who was the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reads? If Moss was anything other than the 1st read, its a moot point that he was open. Alex only had time for his #1 read then had to scramble and once your qb scrambles all bets are off.

I would love it for our OC to dial up better pass plays with a 2 deep jet or the like. Or how about using Crabtree to rub off a db and let Moss come clean? I see other teams using this tactic all the time to great effect but not us?

So, you are telling that if the coverage is man, and Moss isn't Alex's original 1st read, it is the OC's fault that Alex doesn't care if it is man coverage and takes a shot at Moss?

Are we forgetting that the QB is the one with the most power once that radio is turned off?

And please tell me Roman or JH will be super pissed if Alex makes the decision to throw to Moss when he reads man coverage. I'm sure that won't be the case.
