In response to BabeParilli's comment:
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.
The burden of proof is on you to demonstrate that he is still a formidable player. You are the one making that claim and the fact is that he has not put up numbers like an elite WR since 2009. You can try and explain it away however you like, but the burden is still on you so saying I can't prove he is washed up is pointless.
As for your claims about the 9ers I find that explanation to be laughable. If Moss was such a great player still he would have seen more time. Harbaugh knew coming into the season that he had a SB caliber roster. You think he is going to play an inferior player simply because he was younger? Teams with title aspirations don't do that. The fact that Moss could not get more playing time than Manningham means at best he was viewed as the same type of player. Manningham basically played like a JAG during his time on the field with SF. The fact that Moss couldn't get on the field over him also speaks volumes. The fact that SF's WR corps is thin as hell after losing Crabtree and they have no interest in signing Moss speaks volumes. I have Moss' numbers and the lack of interest of the rest of the NFL on my side. What do you have on yours?
