Through the first four weeks of the NFL regular season, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss has failed to live up to once again live up to the hype. This happened when he was waived and then picked up by both the Vikings and Titans during the 2010 season and this season is the same saga.
Moss simply doesn’t look like the dominant wide receiver that he once was.
Moss only has 8 catches for 88 yards and one touchdown in four games. It looks like head coach Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers brought him in to serve as a decoy more than anything. He won’t dare to complain about how many catches he gets, because he knows this is his final chance to win a Super Bowl ring and he’s ultimately along for the ride.
Some people might argue that Moss hasn’t played in over a year, but he looked this mediocre back in 2010 as well. And the Patriots didn’t seem to lose and sleep over releasing him at the time.
