Re: Moss has been outstanding!!!

He needed to play well cause of Thomas and Kelly. When a team drafts two guys with the first two picks that tells you something. But it's good to see him getting back to his old form.

Re: Moss has been outstanding!!!

pRayers for health. he is a game changer when he is at full speed and able to do his magic. Once he gets dinged though He is invisible almost. I lvoe what he csn do for us but I also know how quickly he becomes useless to us.

I disagree that you need a "nice tall possession receiver" for this, or any, offense to thrive.
Jerry Rice is 6-2 and played around 190lbs. John Taylor 6-1 185. They teamed to be one of the most explosive WCO offense ever.
Of modern players, Deion Branch (should be the Seahawks #1 wr currently) is 5-9 and Nate Burleson (#2) is listed at 6-0 but I think that's with cleats on.
Packers run a similar variation with Greg Jennings (5-11) and Donald Driver (6-0).
DeSean Jackson is 5-10 and he has looked pretty awesome for the Eagles.

Moss and ARE are 5-10. It's not a height issue for them it's a catch the ball even though you will get hit. That's why on 3rd and 8 they'll run a 7 yd cross expecting to catch in stride and run away. Where they are limited is inside the 10 yd line where the rules favor the wr (see the Giants game when the cb was pushed down and flagged) and a tall strong wr should be unstoppable. But for the other 90 yards they should excel. Once in the Red Zone, run a screen, run the ball or toss it to Cooley or Yoder. Or just score from 17 yards out.


A good coach fits his offense around his players not try to force good players into a system.

I said it before, and I'll say it again, I love watching him create when he catches a slant or screen...he's very explosive when healthy.

week 1- 5 rec, 37 yards, 1 td
week 2- 7 rec, 164 yards, 1 td
week 3- 7 rec, 75 yards, 1 td

He's on pace for 101 receptions, 1472 yards, and 16 tds!

Thank you for stepping up Moss...we need it!
Don't forget his big run last week for 27 yards.


Yep, he's back. He looks incredible.

Santana just tied Bobby Mitchell's record for a TD catch in 6 straight games. He'll beat that record next week. No fears of getting horsecollared either.






Side note - Sinorice has 1 catch for 23 yards this season.

We are...have you missed the other threads? Seems like all we have talked about is Campbell to this point this year, Moss deserved some love.

Re: Moss has been outstanding!!!

Tell Steve Smith and Marvin Harrison that you can't be a true #1 unless you're 6'4". Moss is injury-prone, but he is dominant when healthy. Moss has top flight speed, acceleration, and agility and I have yet to see anyone adjust to the ball like he can.

Re: Moss has been outstanding!!!

As well as Moss has done this year, it was that first deep TD clutch Campbell to Moss catch that makes him dangerous.

Until that happened against the Saints, I don't remember any Campbell passes to Moss that were of the same sort that Brunell had with him.

This deep chemistry was sorely needed....especially with a west coast system when most passes are under 10 yards....not to mention the positive impact that has on the running game.....now they are going deep at least once a game....and that my friends makes a productive 1st down machine into a quick strike offense....that is a MAJOR development.

Just an FYI, if you do a search of his name, you'll find all the threads that speak about him even though his name might not be in the title. There are about 7 in the last 10 days that are mainly about him.

This may be the most ridiculous post I've seen in the last few years. You can argue about Santana's size (or lack thereof), but not fast enough you say? He is far and away the fastest man on the team. He has caught numerous long TD's over the years because of his superior speed. Clearly my friend, you do not recognize 4.3 speed when it screams past the opposition. When Moss is healthy, he is damn near impossible to cover if our QB's have any time to deliver the ball. Nobody puts up 1,400 yards in a season if they aren't a PLAYER.

Re: Moss has been outstanding!!!

Moss is tied for 4th in yards, tied for 2nd in tds. Of the people he is tied with in tds, Moss has the most yards. He is a true number 1!

As far as fastest, Laudry might have something to say about that(sorry CP). Would be a good race for sure.

After my great frustration with the logic used at the top of this draft, I'm finding it quite sweet that the guys leading our offense (Campbell aside) are 5' 10' or shorter.

Re: Moss has been outstanding!!!

I too was a Moss doubter headed into this year's campaign. Always a cynic I guess because I can't help wonder whether the presence of Kelly/Thomas/Davis gave Moss some extra motivation ever since the draft. I don't think he has looked this focused since 2005, but then again I understand injuries played a part.
