Bring back Moss?

I see no reason NOT to bring him back. He's been a solid contributor on and off the field.
Crabs has grown with Moss along side of him, I can only imagine that Crabs will only get better. Elite WR status even.
I figured we'd be ready to roll with our young receivers, but with the injury situation, if Moss wants to come back, great. Although Moss isn't near what he was in 2007 in New England, I think he can contribute a lot more if he were given more opportunities. Based off of what he faced this season, he could've easily been a 30-40 catch, 6-7 TD guy. Even at 36, he could still do that if we would use his height to our advantage and take advantage of the cushions Moss has been given. Imagine if they continuously went to him, the way we feed Crabtree the ball right now. It would draw corners closer and give Moss a chance to blow by a receiver for a deep pass when the time is right.

With that said, I wouldn't be upset if we drafted 2 receivers and maybe brought in a 3rd as an UDFA. Going into the start of 2013, we will have Crabtree, Moss, and Jenkins. Talent is there, but only 1 is a long term option (Michael Crabtree). So we definitely need to draft a guy high (2nd round maybe) and a lower pick that would both be ready to contribute in week 1. The UDFA perhaps could go to the PS or maybe they could surprise us all and make the team.

Slow and old, Ghost. One year is enough as far as being a starter.

Slow and old? About six weeks ago, we saw him juke a corner in the flat and beat about three db's to the endzone in a 55-yard run. How can you be slow and do that? Come on.
I would bring him back. But he might retire if we win the SB.

Zactly. He doesn't run at top speed all the time, but he's a veteran and realizes you don't have to do that to get open. And btw, he's almost always open.

Moss is a possession receiver now. So, why not?

Those crickety knees would never make it through another season. Bring him back as a coach, but a player? He's going to get hurt out there.

He's still out there. Williams and Manningham are the ones who didn't make it.

Yeah, but a cane isn't part of the NFL uniform.

jerry did it forever why not moss
I noticed most of the nays aren't based on actual facts, but things like, he'll be 36 and one year older. Such strong and compelling arguments.

Alright, one more year, but that's it.
I think you guys should wait another 5 to 10 years, the old jokes don't really apply now Randy Moss is only 35 years old.
