Whatever happened to the best WR in all of football during the SB? If Moss was that good surely he could have caught a few of those bad throws or done something to help the team out.
The guy is about to turn 36 years old! He is but a shadow of the receiver you describe, like he was at 26. He's got 12 years in the league complete with the wear and tear combined with the age that goes with it. He had lots of gifts for a receiver one of which was blazing speed--one of the fastest receivers ever and great leaping ability. Now he has mediocre speed and jumping ability. Even if he beats the coverage in man the defender is usually fast enough to close the distance before the pass arrives.
Jerry Rice was still kicking butt and taking numbers in his 12th year in the league. Sadly even at his best Moss was never better then a 75% WR. He had a ton of talent and the potential to be the best but wasted it. It wouldn't have mattered if he had Montana or Young. He didn't play every down and didn't give 100% his entire career. There was no way he'd ever be #1 given his work ethics.--
