ESPN's NFC West blogger Mike Sando has been conducting a 49ers-related series entitled, MossWatch. Sando has been keeping fans up to date about San Francisco's new high-profile acquisition at wide receiver. In his most recent post, Sando reported on the bond forming between Randy Moss and players like Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree.
The trio makes up the supposed top-3 pass-catchers for the 49ers heading into the 2012 NFL season. And to the fans pleasure, they've become quite fond of one another. San Francisco's superstar tight end and team leader, Vernon Davis, spoke highly about Moss very recently.
Randy is a great guy. I love him. I love him. He has great character. The person that he is, he has a good heart. And he loves the game of football. Even though he's been around for a while, he still loves the game of football. That's what you need around here.
Davis seemed enthused and inspired by Moss' presence, admiring the way he carries himself. He has taken to him and seems to want to learn from Moss' habits and routine in terms of preparation and approach. Moreover, Moss seems to belong with the 49ers -- further evidence that this low-risk, high-reward move by the front office might just pay dividends.
You would never know that's Randy Moss if you didn't know what he looked like. That is what I admire about him. He fits right in. He is a great guy, man, he's a great guy. He comes from different cloth. He is just one of those guys that is exceptional.
Davis and Moss have reportedly been staying together after practice to catch footballs. They've even been seen practicing new techniques as a pair. Together, they seem to be going the extra mile, wanting to take advantage of this opportunity in front of them.
Davis and Moss are the most physically freakish, athletic players on offense for the 49ers. As a tandem, they should be able to manipulate coverages and hurt teams with the big play. The future of San Francisco's new-look offense is very exciting, as they look to put the finishing touches on the unit to make this a championship-winning team in 2012
