Is Randy Moss a twit?

At Super Bowl media day today, Randy Moss proclaimed he is the best wide receiver who ever lived. The man is a twit. For starters, you don't proclaim your own greatness. That's for other people to say. And there's the issue of him being plain wrong. Jerry Rice was better. [...]

Which 49ers receivers are good?

Mario Manningham won't play Sunday against the Fish. (I loved writing Fish.) So, who are the Niners receivers and are they good? Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree are good. That leaves Delanie Walker, Randy Moss, Ted Ginn and A.J. Jenkins. Are any of them good? Please rank them one through [...]

Randy Moss, a question. And then a larger question

Question: Has Randy Moss added anything significant to the 49ers offense? Through four games he has 8 catches, one TD. He has been the target of passes 12 times. None of this is astonishing. Larger question: Is the 49ers' offense appreciably better this season than last? Remember, the Niners got [...]

What Randy Moss said

I don't know what to make of Randy Moss. I don't know if he can play or if he can't play. The Niners must have thought he could play otherwise they would not have signed him, but he does not seem to play a lot. After the Niners lost to [...]

Alex Smith and Randy Moss

As preparation for coming off vacation, I've been reading transcripts from 49ers coaches. Recently, Greg Roman talked about that second and 7 play against the Texans where Alex Smith threw to Vernon Davis -- it was incomplete -- even though Randy Moss was streaking downfield, apparently open. Roman said Smith [...]

Randy Moss, model student

I'm up here in Ashland Oregon, but I still read about sports -- hey, I'm on Comcast next Monday and don't want to come off as a dope. I'm reading that Randy Moss will address the media today. Moss is a Hall of Fame receiver and a good pick up [...]

Moss might be problem on 49ers

As I promised earlier, here is my Tuesday column about the San Francisco 49ers signing wide receiver Randy Moss, and this column is a sub for my earlier column about Alex Smith. I acknowledge Moss has been a great player and he will go into the Hall of Fame, for [...]

Moss to 49ers

ESPN is reporting the Niners have signed Randy Moss to a one-year deal. So, forget about that column I already put up about Alex Smith because now I'm onto Moss. In fact, I am sitting at the dining-room table with Grant -- we had chicken for dinner prepared by Mrs. [...]

Randy Moss to work out for 49ers

It is being reported that Randy Moss will work out for the 49ers tomorrow. If Moss has any speed left, looking at Moss makes sense for the Niners. Aside from Vernon Davis they have no deep threat, and that hurts their offense. And, no, Ted Ginn is not a deep [...]

Jerry Rice bashes Randy Moss

Jerry Rice recently called out Randy Moss. He said Moss was sometimes lazy and didn't always run his routes. Everyone knows this is true. Everyone also knows Moss did not like to run across the middle. Rice said Moss' sometimes lack of effort offended him. It should have offended everyone. [...]
