Will Moss be more of a factor now that C.K. is starting?

Joe, Steve, and Jerry built a dynasty on those kinds of plays.

I can access the historical archives if you need evidence or something.

I believe Montana built a dynasty off of throwing to a RB in the flat and slants to WRs. Long throws were not what the west coast offense was built on. Only with YAC did we really get long TDs. Only in the early 1990s did the West Coast offense start to change and use longer passes but even then the slant and throwing to the RBs were the staples.

If you have a qb who can throw deep, why not try? Who would expect that from us.

Neither Montana or Young were known for throwing deep. They had great accuracy when they did, but they made their money on short to intermediate with the occasional bomb when things opened up. From a strength point of view Alex probably has about as good an arm they did.

The difference is when there was a throw to make they always made it, and it was right on target. Alex still has that hesitation factor and takes the safer route a bit more.

All the 80 yd TD's the Niners scored were from a perfectly placed slant or post that the WR caught at full speed and blew past people.

In his one game sample size, CK7 looks like he has the touch and accuracy we need for the WCO, but also the arm and guts to throw it 40 yards downfield when there is a chance to strike.
Yeah I could see Moss getting 2 tds if they feature him more. Last Monday Moss could of had a TD on the back end right side of the End Zone, instead it went to VD. Even VD said something like he was suprised the throw went to him cus normally on that play call the pass goes to the WR.
Yeah and now all our receivers are gonna have broken hands like randy moss.

Haha, I'm starting to think Moss just overreacted to the hand thing to make his man Kaepernick look like a boss. Not that he needed the assist. Seems like Randy is just fine though.

Can't wait to see the chemistry develop over the coming weeks. It's going to be fun.
1 catch for 12 yards and one drop. Don't care how hard that ball was thrown. Should have caught it. VD and Crabs will still be the features in the receiving game.

do not think it changes anything,, vd crabs kyle and mario are playing at a very good level right now
Depends entirely on how the defense chooses to cover. The Bears were very predictable in coverage with only a single safety deep much of the time. Weak as the NO secondary is, I doubt they will make the same mistake Chicago did.

No. They will make worse mistakes. It's up to Roman to exploit them, too.
what really like kaep is he can spread ball on field with different receivers. i bet davis, moss, crabtree will have a good day on sunday.
Yes - ONLY if the OLine plays like last week
No. Randy had only one catch Monday. I think the results will be little more than marginally/insignificantly higher.
YES. Alex Smith was not the QB for Randy Moss. I've wanted Kaepernick to be the starter ever since he took that chane vs NYJ and heaved the ball into triple coverage. A.Smith flat out does not have the balls to even try a pass like that. The Niners didn't even need Alex in that game. They could have won with Tolzien starting. Alex threw for a measly 143 yds and ZERO tds VS one of the NFLs worst defenses. Games were beginning to get rather boring with Smith under center. Kaepernick has breathed some life back into this season. Fans no longer have to sit through 100 yd passing games. Kaep not only will gt Moss more involved, but the ENTIRE recieving corps as well. Teams aren't going to stack the box against the 9ers anymore, which will alow Frank Gore to run free. No more checkdowns for losses or no gains. One bomb the whole year to Randy is despicable. Can't believe I have been reading comments calling Harbaugh's decision to start Kaep "terrible". Alex Smith did not LEAD the 9ers to an NFC title game appearence. The Defense did. 5 turnovers vs the Saints allowed Alex Smith to have the game of his life. Remember when Mark Sanchez "LED" NYJ to 2 consecutive title game appearences? It does not take a great QB to lead his team to a NFC/AFC championship game. It takes a great QB to win a Superbowl. Something I started to doubt highly after the games VS Minnesota,NYJ,NYG,and Seattle. Alex Smith was this teams weakest link by far. How many contending teams can say thier QB is the weakest link? ZERO. You heard Vernon say it, "Kaeps the MAN!!"

These Madden jokes are not only old, but dumb. Please explain how an 80-yard bomb has anythimg to do with Madden's video game. Are you insinuating no QB has ever thrown a bomb with success?

Just stop.

Moss dislocated his finger. He came out, popped it back into place and was back in afterwards.
