Moss has never been a particulary great route-running, over the middle possesion making WR. Moss's big strength is the deep ball, throw it up and I'll go get it. He made the one catch in double coverage during that perseason game that was barely out of bounds. Moss only needs 50-60 catches to get maybe 1200-1500 yards, and he'll get plenty of TDs on deep balls. I don't think any of us are expecting him to be an 80-100 catch guy anyways.


Moss is not as fast as he used to be... I remember, early in the season, he was run down from behind! Age and injury is definitely the enemy to his style of play. A guy like Harrison relies on precise routes, which is why he can still produce.

I dislike Moss calling out Brooks like that. Makes me wonder how much the O must be sucking in practice too. Still an awful lot of potential for where Moss can be drafted.

Yeah, but the guy that ran him down was Terrence Newman, not exactly a slow guy.

I found it kind of disturbing that I view Andrew Walter starting for the Raider's a huge plus for Randy Moss at this point.

50-60 catches = bust city
