Moss also discussed his legacy, saying that he is "the greatest receiver to ever play the game." While admitting that this was a down year statistically for him, he more looks at the impact he has on the field.

Tight end Vernon Davis said that he and quarterback Colin Kaepernick have built some chemistry. Last month, Davis said that it was a lack of chemistry with the new quarterback that caused his drop in production.

Quarterback Alex Smith touched on his future a little bit, saying that he is excited for his next opportunity ... wherever that comes. He wants to be an NFL starter again and many feel that the 49ers will try to trade him during the offseason.

Michael Crabtree discussed his rise in production with Colin Kaepernick at quarterback. While he was careful to to say anything negative about quarterback Alex Smith, he did say, "You can be the best receiver in the world. If you don't have a quarterback ... those talents won't be seen."
