In response to BabeParilli's comment:
So in 2010 he had 3 TDs in 3 starts for the Pats. Got traded to dysfunctional MN and basically crapped on them. Got claimed by TN, God only knows why, and was barely used.
Sat out a year because he didn't like the offers. (How many yards should he have gotten when he didn't play?)
Had 3 TDs in 2 starts with the 9ers (though he was used sparingly).
I see no facts there that say Randy cannot play the game at a still formidable level.
What I see here is only football babble with no substance to back it up.
This is the definition of spin. He would have put up better numbers if he had stayed on the Pats or if he had been picked up by a team that wasn't dysfunctional or if he had been used as a full time receiver. No facts, just hypotheticals.
Have you conisdered that maybe he wasn't used as a full time player because he isn't what he once was? It's not like they had a murderer's row of receivers over there in SF besides Crabtree. You must think Harbaugh and Roman are the worst HC and OC combo in the NFL since they barely used an impact player like Moss. The fact that SF has demonstrated ZERO interest in Moss after Crabtree blew up his achilles speaks volumes of what they think of his prospects as a full time player over there.
I've gone over this nonsense already. I'll go slow.
Randy in 2010 was a lost year.
He had 3 TDs in 3 games with the Pats.
The MN stop was a fiasco that proved nothing about his ability.
And at TN they simply didn't use him. (Former Titans receivers coach Fred Graves - “I just don’t think we gave him a chance,”)
He didn't play in 2011 (despite offers).
With the 9ers in 2012 he signed knowing he was just a fill in and agreed to that. They weren't interested in sitting capable 20 something year olds with that offense for an aging receiver. Fine, they were clear about that.
None of this is spin. These are all facts.
There are no facts proving that Randy can't be a significant contributor to a team at WR. As always I scoff at the BS most fans like to offer as football knowledge. Maybe Randy is washed up. But there is no proof whatsoever that this is the case. It's just fans blabbering nonsense as if it was football knowledge. Happens here, day in, day out.
