Click to view slideshow. Redskins receiver Santana Moss is synonymous with production and professionalism in Washington, where he has been a rock of stability over the last seven years. But in light of the upcoming game against the New York Jets, he reminisced on some of the mistakes that he made with the media in The Big Apple. “I came in young, went through something real rough my first year and not knowing how to handle the media, not knowing how to talk to the media,” he said.  ”Even though I came from the University of Miami–you would have thought I would have know a little bit more about talking to the media–but I didn’t.” Moss is a go-to in the Redskins locker room, willing to answer any and all questions, and never backing down from even the most skeptical of media.  The picture he painted of himself as a rookie was foreign compared to the Moss we know now. “I really took out my frustrations of me not being able to play against the media–I just didn’t talk to them,” he said.
