Randy Moss arrived at the New England Patriots five years ago thinking he knew a lot about football.
Then, he began playing for Bill Belichick. Moss' mindset regarding his own football knowledge changed in a hurry. Only then did he learn the intricacies of his sport from ''A to Z,'' as the 49ers wide receiver now puts it.
Moss returns to Foxborough, Mass., this weekend with his new team to face the high-scoring Patriots in prime time - a matchup of Tom Brady and the AFC's top offense against NFL sacks leader Aldon Smith and the NFC's No. 2 defense.
The 35-year-old Moss hardly has the playmaking role as a 14th-year pro that he did as a youngster in the league, yet that didn't stop Belichick from piling on the praise this week.

Colin Kaepernick had made a lot of plays with his legs for the San Francisco 49ers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he can’t throw. Not only has he completed more than 67% of his passes this season, but Kaepernick is also capable of putting some zip on the ball and sticking it into tight spots. Randy Moss said that is the reason he recently suffered the first dislocated finger...
The ringleaders of the Patriots dynasty, coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, cover the spectrum of Patriots/49ers during their Wednesday news conferences before media that cover the Patriots.
Bill Belichick and Doc Rivers are part of a very unique Boston coaching fraternity, but the similarities go beyond the city that they represent.
The similarities also go beyond championship jewelry, which both Belichick and Rivers have been fortunate enough to obtain during their time in New England. According to Celtics guard Jason Terry, Belichick and Rivers actually have very...

Why was the move made to Colin Kaepernick at QB? What’s behind SF’s rushing success? How will the 49ers stop Tom Brady, and is Brady up there with Joe Montana among the greatest QBs of all-time?...
What a riveting interview! It's great the relationship that the coaches of the Celtics and Patriots have. One thing I always bring up is how Belichick called Rivers for his opinion on Brandon Spikes before drafting him, since Spikes was dating Rivers' daughter.Needless to say, that worked out pretty well.Be sure to check out CelticsLife for the best coverage of the Celtics...
Just like my hazy days of college, I am a week late with my report, this time on the state of NFL, halfway through the mania of the 2012 season. Let's do it anyways, through week 10 and kind of a Coles notes version, with a grade, of course.

I don’t like the Patriots, but I do have a tremendous amount of respect for them. I feel like Tom Brady and Bill Belichick can make chicken salad out of chicken sh$t. At this point, after watching Monday’s game I would have to say the Patriots are the best team in the league right now.
