Whats with Moss?

Postby FattyMcButterPants » Fri Oct 08, 2004 10:41 am

I picked up Santana Moss as my first reciever pick, thinking that he was going to be dominant this year with Chad Pennington healthy. So far, he has done jack: with 169 recieving yards and 0 TD's. I am in a league that touchdowns are your main source of points and I am getting very agrivated that people such as Reggie Wayne, Javon Walker, and Darrell Jackson (Who I also have on my team but didnt start because Moss is supposed to be an elite) are scoring more points in one week than a top 10 reciever such as Moss has scored all year. Will Moss and Pennington figure it out, or should I dump Moss before he has no stock what-so-ever.

I'm in the same boat. Nothing to do but hang tight. You can't trade him for value right now, and if you cut him you run the risk of having him light you up in a couple of weeks on someone else's roster.

I went through the same thing in Rice's twilight season last year, waiting week after week for any sign of life. Finally cut him about week 8. With the depth in my league I don't have that luxury with Moss.

What all Moss owners really need is for CMart to come back to earth, or for opposing defenses to start looking at him as a threat. Then the Jets may actually try passing.

We talking a small bit about this yesterday here:
http://fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/v ... hp?t=92241

The Jets pass attack in general has been bad, mainly because of Curtis Martin ripping defenses apart. When a team can control a game through the ground (and run out the clock), they don't really need to pass.

I don't think Martin will keep up what he's doing, so this will get the receivers in the game a little more. Santana is a good receiver, but at this point he may not be #1 material. I wouldn't just give up on him since he's a #1 WR on a decent team. If you try to trade him now, you'll get very little.

I know he was hurt early, and they were in at least 1 blowout. With Martin kicking butt I think we need a few more weeks before we call it a bust.

I wonder if WebHamster can be set to automatically delete posts that start with "What's with"...

Either hang tight or trade him for something you need, or even bench him, but you would be a moron to drop him this early.

This just in: Chad Pennington hates Santana Moss. Im not sure what the exact numbers are but I think Santana did most of his damage with Testeverde last year.

What's you source...

That's untrue completely. Pennington held practices at his house with McCareins and Moss this off-season.

As for the topic, I think Moss will bounce back, but not huge. In the beginning of the year we saw McCareins bomb, so I think if they do go back to the WR and stop using CMart so much, McCareins and Moss will both get about the same looks.

knowing the cruel, ironic and evil god that is the FF master, I assume he will... only to spite those. And then Barlow will get a strained calf or something.

I don't wish for these things to happen, but now that you've said that, it is inevitable... sorry...
