The Victory Formation:
Randy Moss has never been shy to speak his mind when an opportunity presented itself. And if there’s one topic he’s well versed it, it’s wide receivers overcoming personal, off-the-field issues to have Hall of Fame careers. This week, while speaking with Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Moss took another opportunity to have his voice heard. This time, he was speaking on another troubled wide receiver, his short-term teammate with the Titans, Kenny Britt. “I can’t really speak about it because I have been into trouble off the field myself. But from what I have seen Kenny Britt do, man, if he gets his mind right, Kenny Britt can get up in elite class very quickly. I am a big fan of his.” Moss went on to favorably compare Britt to the likes of AJ Green and Julio Jones, two of the top young wide receivers in the NFL today.

The 49ers young quarterback Colin Kaepernick could have just picked up one of his biggest fans with his performance in Super Bowl 47. Terrell Suggs is signing nothing but praise for the 9ers Q.B.. With the performance Kaepernick put on in the second half of the Super Bowl, he made a believer out of the Ravens hard-hitting linebacker. Suggs thought there was far too much hype about...
Before the 2012 season started, 49ers tight end Delanie Walker indicated that he would love to re-sign with the 49ers this offseason, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
“I like playing for the 49ers, I like our system and I love the head coach,” Walker said. “So whatever I can do, or whatever the organization can do to get me here, that’s what I want to do.”
According to the Sacramento Bee, former first round pick A.J. Jenkins says he’s going to be a different player next season after essentially doing nothing as a rookie in 2012.
The 49ers’ 2012 first-round draft pick said he wants to return next season as “a totally different player” and that he planned to work out with buddy Colin Kaepernick during the offseason.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is a freak of nature, and has been compared to Randy Moss in terms of his athletic ability.

Triple Shot: San Francisco 49ers
By Eric Judd
San Francisco 49ers
Major Need: Cornerback
Best Shot: Desmond Trufant CB Washington. Sitting at (nearly) the end of the first round, San Francisco won’t be in a position to draft the class’ top cornerback. Trufant, however would provide an immediate upgrade to, and replacement for, Chris Culliver, who...
I thought today I'd take a brief break from our series of positional analyses to look at a broader issue of how teams build a roster.
I wrote about this at Football Outsiders, but in the NFL, there are, more or less, five ways you can acquire a player:
a. Draft them. Drafted players are subject to team control at a relatively modest price for four years (five for first...
