Randy Moss with his first Super Bowl ring?

Will Randy Moss achieve his first NFL Super Bowl ring? Will 49ers quarterback Alex Smith have his first 5,000 yard season?

Clean cut with a short hairdo and sporting a red #84 jersey (sorry, Josh Morgan) while running routes Thursday, Moss was one of the signature faces for the new-look 49ers after spending a year out of football. Following a comeback season in 2011, this franchise made some high-profile offseason additions with players like 35-year-old Moss, determined to make another Super Bowl push.

Moss even dazzled on a 55-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Alex Smith. “It’s tough to tell that he missed a year of football. I certainly don’t see any rust,” Smith said of Moss. “He’s running well, catching well. No surprise, he’s a pro and already has a good understanding of the playbook.”  Continue reading “Randy Moss with his first Super Bowl ring?” Randy Moss with his first…

Randy Moss working out as a 49er?

Am I the only San Francisco 49er fan that doesn’t want to see Randy Moss dress up in the red & gold?

I do not feel as if an aged veteran, arguably the 2nd best wide receiver in the history of football, has a place on the 49ers.

Let’s train rookies or go with some younger free agents.  Continue reading “Randy Moss working out as a 49er?” Randy Moss working out as…

Could the 49ers pick up a Steel?

(.. do you see what I did there? Steal? Steelers? bwahaha…)

The expiration date to lock up the NFL’s franchise players has come and gone, and there are a few receivers to take a look at in free agency. I wrote about Marques Colston from the Saints, but there’s another possibility out there that won’t break the 49ers’ bank.

This is the most enticing argument for chasing after a young, talented restricted free agent such as Mike Wallace, who might qualify as the best deep-threat receiver in the NFL. NFC West fans might remember Wallace’s 95-yard touchdown reception against Arizona last season, or his 53-yard reception against Seattle, or his 46-yarder against St. Louis. Wallace would give the 49ers the deep-threat wideout their rotation has been lacking.

There are a few factors to consider for both the team and the free agent:  Continue reading “Could the 49ers pick up a Steel?” Could the 49ers pick up a…
