Posts Tagged ‘Randy Moss’

Wide receiver Randy Moss told reporters at Super Bowl media day Tuesday that he believes he’s the all-time best receiver in NFL history.

In a San Francisco 49ers jersey, nonetheless, the team Jerry Rice won three Super Bowls with.

But even if we’re debating Moss vs. Rice, NFL.com Fantasy analyst Dave Dameshek is taking it a step further: He says the Detroit Lions’ Calvin Johnson makes the case for No. 2 all-time, ahead of Moss.

Of course, Johnson may not even be halfway through his NFL career, having six seasons, 7,836 yards and 54 touchdowns under his belt at the age of 27.

But he’s certainly in the prime of his career, coming off a season in which he broke Jerry Rice’s record with 1,961 receiving yards.

“Yes, this depends on how the next half-dozen years go, but if we assume he can stay on the field, Johnson will take a run at most of Rice’s records,” Dameshek argues. “He’s got a big-armed young QB in Matt Stafford throwing him the ball and there are just enough other pieces in the Detroit Lions’ offense to keep the other team from putting a nickel’s-worth of DBs on him.”

On his all-time list, Dameshek has Moss at No. 3, Michael Irvin at No. 4 and Larry Fitzgerald (still playing for the Arizona Cardinals) at No. 5. He mentions that his “primary analytic tools” were his eyes, so his list is based more on the eyeball test than statistics.

Rice has 22,895 career receiving yards and 197 receiving touchdowns, so Megatron may need at least another decade, if not more, to catch up to Rice.

Since the start of the postseason, a lot of attention has been put on Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and his “last ride.” There is no doubt that Super Bowl XLVII will be the last game for Lewis, but can the same be said for another future Hall of Famer that will be on the opposite sideline?

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss has done just about everything there is for a receiver to do in the NFL, except for win a Super Bowl title. In Moss’ 14-year career, he has won Offensive Rookie of the Year, was named to seven Pro Bowls, was a five-time All-Pro, has played in three conference championship games, and will be participating in his second Super Bowl.

Moss came ever so close to the Lombardi Trophy on two occasions. In the 1998 season, as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, an overtime loss to the Atlanta Falcons prevented Moss and one of the best offenses in league history from playing for the world championship. Nine years later, Moss and the New England Patriots were on the verge of making history in Super Bowl XLII by finishing the entire season undefeated, but the New York Giants handed them their only loss of the year.

After leaving New England following Week 4 of the regular season in 2010, Moss went on to return to the Vikings, only to be waived by Minnesota four games later. The Tennessee Titans then claimed the veteran receiver and was a non-factor for the remainder of the year.

Prior to the 2011 season, Moss announced his retirement, only to return as a member of the 49ers in 2012. It’s apparently clear that Moss joined San Francisco simply because they had a great chance of winning a championship. It’s also evident that Moss is no longer the go-to guy he once was in the passing game. This regular season, Moss had only 28 catches for 434 yards and three touchdowns (the numbers of a typical role player).

If the 49ers do end up winning the Super Bowl, I think that it will be safe to say that Moss will take his ring and call it a career. He definitely doesn’t want to continue his career as the third or fourth option in an offense.

As mentioned before, Moss has done everything there is to do as a receiver. He’s a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and the only thing he needs to top off this stellar career is the opportunity to call himself a champion.

Colin Kaepernick Colin Kaepernick #7 of the San Francisco 49ers participates in passing drills during practice at the San Francisco 49ers training facility on July 30, 2011 in Santa Clara, California.

January 22, 2013           3:00pm

After a Michael Crabtree fumble at the 1 yard line ruined the 49ers chances for their first lead of the game, Matt Ryan hiked the ball from his own end zone.

A quick strike wide right was defended by the arms of linebacker, Ahmad Brooks. The next play was a handoff inside that produced 4 yards. Then came 3rd and 6.

Ryan backs up and throws a ball to his trusty, Hall of Fame tight end, Tony Gonzalez. All Gonzalez has to do is turn and pick up one yard of YAC and the first down is his.

“Sorry about that,” says Carlos Rogers.

A 48 yard punt is returned by Ted Ginn Jr. to the Atlanta 38, and Colin Kaepernick, who had just led one drive that should have won the game, comes back on the field to try again.

He hands the ball off four times; throws it out to Crabtree on a wide receiver screen once — showing the team’s faith that Crabtree would not fumble again — and then hands it off to Frank Gore one last time, who takes it in 9 yards for the go-ahead score.

And, with that, Colin “The Kid” Kaepernick officially becomes “The Comeback Kid”,“Kaptain Comeback.”

Nothing flashy. No crazy 50 yard scramble. Though the very threat of it allowed both Gore and LaMichael James to emerge out of the backfield untouched in various runs throughout the day, as Atlanta always over-compensated for Kaepernick in the option game.

No last second touchdown. No nail-biting field goal attempt. Just a workman-like performance of perfect execution and class.

That’s what we call 49er football, and, at the end of the day, there’s just as much glory in it as anything else. Maybe even more, because it truly is a team effort.

Kaepernick’s smooth, unselfish performance ended up being the very first 4th quarter comeback (4QC)/ game-winning drive (GWD) of his career.

And it only came in the NFC Championship Game. No sweat.

Playoff Comebacks

We took to the wonderful search tools at pro-football-reference to figure out what other player in NFL history could say that his very first 4QC/GWD performance came in the playoffs.

It has to be at least a somewhat rare feat, right? For a young player, starting in one of his very first professional games, to show the poise required to lead his team from behind. But how rare is it?

To start, we narrowed the search to rookies who had a 4QC/GWD in the post-season. Then did the same thing for second year quarterbacks, and third year guys, and so on up to players in their 10th year (arbitrary cut-off that I assume still gets us all the relevant data).

For each group, we perused their respective player pages to see whether their playoff comeback was also the first of their career.

After all the research, it turns out Kaepernick is only the 4th quarterback in NFL history do have his first 4QC/GWD in the playoffs.

Vince Ferragamo did it for the Rams in 1979, defeating the Cowboys 21 – 19 in the Divisional Round. His stat line for the game:

  • 9 of 21 for 210 yards, 3 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 79.5 rating, 8.57 AY/A.

The second was Kurt Warner, who did it in 1999, also for the Rams, as they beat Tampa bay 11 – 6 (what?) in the NFC Championship Game. Warner would go on to have another game-winning drive in the Super Bowl.

  • 26 of 43 for 258 yards, 1 touchdown, 3 interceptions, 56.2 rating, 3.33 AY/A.

Before Kaep, the most recent quarterback to do it was Mark Sanchez in 2009 for the Jets. They defeated the Chargers 17 – 14 in the Divisional Round. His stats, too, were underwhelming:

  • 12 of 23 for 100 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception, 60.1 rating, 3.26 AY/A.

And then finally, Colin joined the list on Sunday. Like Warner, his comeback came in the NFC Championship Game; but unlike any of the three men above, his performance was much more admirable:

  • 16 of 21 (76.2%!!) for 273 yards, 1 touchdown, 0 interceptions, 127.7 rating, 12.05 AY/A.

What’s next?

Colin’s game was the best of the group, even though the deficit he faced was also the largest and his number of career starts the lowest.

As most of you probably know, Joe Montana has the most 4th quarter comebacks in NFL playoff history, with 5. On Sunday, Colin Kaepernick etched his first one into the record books.

And while he has a long way to go to reach the fame and reputation of the GOAT, it is nice to at least check this first accomplishment off the list.

In only his 9th career start, the young gun who some of us affectionately refer to as “The Kid”, proved he could stay as cool as Joe when faced with a 17 – 0 deficit on the road.

The 49ers snapped a 5 game road playoff losing streak, and are now headed to their first Super Bowl in almost 20 years.

What does Kap have in store for us next?
