Randy Moss wasn’t interested in answering questions about his lack of playing time after the 49ers’ 24-13 loss to the Vikings in Minnesota on Sunday.

When asked about his lack of playing time after the game, Moss answered “next question.” He only fielded three questions from reporters.

The “next question” response was a continuation of what Moss did during the week leading up to Sunday’s game. Maybe this is his way of telling reporters to find something else to ask him about.

Moss had three catches for 27 yards on six targets, and he hardly saw any action late in the game. The receiver was thrown to five times in the first half, and did not see another target after the team’s first drive of the second half. The 49ers even went with Kyle Williams in their three wide receiver sets late in the game. That could have bothered Moss, who was overthrown on a potential touchdown pass early in the game, and dropped another pass.

There was a report from 1500 ESPN’s Tom Pelissero that Moss was sitting on the bench late in the game away from the rest of San Francisco’s offensive players.

It’s too early to make any conclusions about Moss’ behavior on the 49ers, but given his history of implosions, it wouldn’t be surprising if this were the beginning of a meltdown. The odds are against him behaving well for the entire season.
