Moss liability status, looking at his entire career, has been some fumbling and effort issues. He's money this season. No reason to live in the past when he can help us win games now.

Re: Keep 89 On the Field

My post wasn't clear -- I meant in the running game. He's one of the worst blockers on the team. Has more to do with his stature than his drive.

It sounds like you are going out of your way to pan Moss. Since when had Moss been a bad blocker? Because that's what your saying when you call him one of the worst blockers on the team.

Naturally, Moss isn't going to be a strong as Morgan or Garcon, but what makes him one of the 'worst blockers on the team'?

Re: Keep 89 On the Field

30Gut -- It's more a symptom of the type of players and talent we've brought in to this team. During the downs we want to sell play action or we want to run the ball -- I'd rather see any combination of Hankerson, Morgan, and Garcon on the field, probably Briscoe as well. The only person I don't know about is Robinson.

That's fine, it's not Moss' forte, but if you see Moss you should know it's a pass. I meant one of the worst blockers at WR -- I stand by that.

FYI-Moss has more the YAC then Hankerson and Morgan, he's behind Freddy D though
You are basing Moss' YAC on one play bro. A blown coverage with nobody guarding him. Other than that, he hasn't broke anything of the sort. Granted, he's come up huge on some critical downs.

Really? Its all from 1 play? By that same token so is Garcon's.
Look it happened, I'm not going selectively remove or alter stats when I posted them.

But, even if you look at Moss historically he's always had a high YAC.

If you want to sell play action then you want Moss to play more so its not a give away when he's in the game.

Garcon is hurt so he's a non-factor.
I want to see Morgan and Moss because they'll get open and they'll catch the ball when its thrown to them.

Maybe i'm nit-picking but when you use the words 'worst' to mean 'not as good as' your conveying a clearly negative image.
But, whatever I think its funny is such a bad blocker yet Moss run blocking hasn't been a problem before.

Re: Keep 89 On the Field

moss has never been a great run blocker. that's part of why morgan and hankerson and garcon and paul are put out there, because they run block well. and our WRs do spend a lot of time blocking for runs, that and griffin are huge parts of the nfl's #2 run offense.

until robinson and garcon figure out how to get on the field, moss and davis are clearly our best options. we just happen to have a QB that can hide the warts on the WR corp right now.
