Randy entered the league with much hype, serious speculation, and character concerns. He was taken #19 in the first round. He was vehement in showing the teams who passed on him what they missed. He went on to play well above expectations - phenomenally at times. His mouth and attitude began to compromise his better judgment. He taxed his team to the breaking point - Moss moves to New England.
While with the Patriots
, Moss realigned his play and participated on a team who set records - before dissolving in the Super Bowl. Moss too set personal records for TDs and displayed why he was an elite receiver. Once again, Moss' mouth and attitude ended his relationship with the Patriots.
Do you see a pattern?
Moss's last gig was "musical teams" - he left the game prematurely and many presumed he was retired. We next hear of Moss signing with the Niners. Admittedly, I was stoked - and anxious. Moss is a manificent mixture of matchless play and mealy mouthed malfeasance. I like him. I have hopes... qualified hopes.
Moss wants a Super Bowl victory - his resume' is incomplete without one. Moss will not be considered alongside the best wide receivers unless he crowns his career with a championship. Moss analyzed the 49ers
and asked to join the team. He saw what we saw. He also saw that his presence could improve the 49ers chances of a championship. Moss is working on his own agenda - that includes the 49ers. He wants to leave the game on top - and everyone speechless. I expect a matured and focused Moss to shred defenses and display his skilz are far from dead. Time will tell... But there's a part of me that smiles when I think of Moss helping Alex be an elite passer, leading a team, by example to new heights. This moment is ripe for a spectacular season - one that recalls the glorious past, one for the ages. Moss sees himself in that vision - why else is he here? We are likely to witness a special transformation - for Moss and the 49ers.
