While they are at it, maybe they could get TO back and complete the set?

Moss better grab all the paychecks he can. He's about to fall off of the gravy train.

FFFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWKKKK!!!!

Well, this sucks. Hopefully, it's just a weekend on the coast and he goes back to wherever afterward.

I'd think he looks good in the practice, then gets his paycheck and reverts back to his most recent routine of not completing routes on plays not destined for him, not blocking, giving up on routes once contact is made, etc.

It's a young team, keep it that way. They all need to rely on each other AND feel that all of them can contribute.
 
2012-03-11 01:43:34 PM  
is he still playing?
 
2012-03-11 03:51:11 PM  
Well that's bad for the Niners.

Mostly because they might not pay enough attention to wideout if they have Moss, which would be positively dreadful.
 
2012-03-11 03:51:15 PM  
Is Moss willing to return punts?
 
2012-03-11 03:53:27 PM  
whats the point in having moss if you have a QB who can't reach him downfield

About as likely as him returning the paychecks he stole from Minnesota.

I don't know what you people are freaking out about. The 49ers worked out Daunte Culpepper last year (and everyone was biatching about that). They also cut Braylon Edwards when it became apparent he was a piece of shiat. This is just seeing if he has anything left, and if he does, the most they would offer him would be a vet minimum contract they could easily get out of.

If you think for one minute that Trent Balke and Jim Harbaugh would sing Moss, then watch him quit on routes all year, you are nuts. If he did it twice he'd be out the door.

Outside of his last year, the quit element on Moss has been a bit overblown. I'm a Raiders fan and I would've quit too if Andrew Walter and an Old Aaron Brooks were my QB options while I was there.

If he ends up with the Saints, he's going to put up 1000+ yards and 12+ tds.
 
2012-03-11 04:24:58 PM  
Hopefully Moss can break some of Rice's steroid-tainted records.
 
2012-03-11 04:59:19 PM  
Subby, what have I told you about splitting infinitives?
 
2012-03-11 05:14:35 PM  
Somehow I think the personalities of Harbaugh and Moss might clash.
 
2012-03-11 05:26:25 PM  
He'll be a Saint. I think. Pretty sure. 75%.

That's just the problem....Randy only plays when he is surrounded by other great talent. When he has to work with struggling teammates, he just quits instead of trying to bring everyone up to his level.

He has all the tools of a great WR and is an amazing athlete....but his attitude is that of a big crybaby who stomps his feet and crosses his arms when he doesn't get picked to be on the same team as the popular jocks in dodgeball.

TL;DR F*ck Randy Moss

Haha, while true, it'd be nice to have a fark you season like the '07 Pats. Although without the whole stepping on their dick at the end of the year thing, if possible.

He's just doing workouts with teams to try out their locker room catering.

Why else do you think he brings along his dog?

This is a lot more fun than strikes and lockouts.

Fair enough - he's a terrible leader. He's a follower. But still, he had great years in Minnesota without a great QB. And he played the good soldier role in New England that year he had to play with Cassel getting Welker most of the balls.

But it's still ridiculous that one of the 5 best receivers of all time - not just in talent, but actual production - is being made out to be a guy who is a quitter.

To me, his career mirrors a lot of what Shaq did in the NBA. Terrific player, first ballot hall of famer, who didn't live up to what he could've been because of work ethic. It doesn't take away their greatness though.

/and before you run to me about rings, lets remember that football and basketball are way different sports as far as impact that one guy can have.

Couldn't disagree more. As a Raider fan, Moss' shameful performance the two years in Oakland made me want to vomit. I don't care how bad the guy throwing you the ball is; if you're being paid over nine million dollars a year, you don't pull that kind of garbage. Hall of Famers don't quit. Randy Moss isn't fit to carry Tim Brown's jock strap. You can identify the really dumb Raider fans at a distance because they still wear the #18 jersey.

/just ACL, baby

Biggest piece of shiat ever to put on an NFL uniform.

He will end up like the bulk of NFL players, broke within 4 years of leaving the league.

Having watched him grow up in Charleston, West Virginia and watched him commit multiple crimes including a number of domestic violence situations he wasn't charged with I hope he gets very miserable soon.

He's a worthless human.

Maybe Shaq could have put more effort in during the offseason, but he didn't take plays off all the time. And even though he and Kobe didn't get along great, he's not an awful teammate. I don't really see that comparison.

You don't think Shaq was a bad teammate? Wow. There are plenty of stories to find out there if you want. Not to mention he intentionally delayed a surgery in his later years with the Lakers saying: "I got hurt on company time, so I'll rehab on company time." Instead of taking plays off, he decided to take whole games off.

But back on Moss, he's no Jerry Rice with his work ethic, and his leadership skills have been mostly non-existent. But he is a guy who has played hurt multiple times, and he's made enough of his talent to become what should be a first ballot hall of famer. If he was good enough for Belichick and Brady (until he started biatching about his contract), then he's good enough for me.

Right, because Rae Carruth is such a great guy. Or maybe you'd prefer one of the quiet types like Marvin Harrison that shoots people in his downtime.

just because his work ethic isn't what it could be, he does off the field work that proves to me that he is not worthless, when he was playing in minnesota he'd have special needs kids on the field in the endzone,,,,and would give them game balls after touchdowns. also read

this (new window)

he does a lot of stuff for charities and doesn't seek recognition for it.

say what you will about him as a football player but when you call him a worthless human you are just showing that you are a pretty shiatty person
 
2012-03-12 10:45:34 AM  
How many games into the season before he gives another post-game "I miss the Patriots" speech?
Someone needs to put him in a corner like Chad #85....

Looks like he half-heartedly worked his way to a Niners contract. Apparently his workouts were good enough for Harbaugh, who was the one throwing him passes.

/Niners fan, not sure how I feel.
//Still need a PR/KR. Ted Ginn is a free agent.
///and a QB, since Alex Smith is a free agent, too.
