NottoRegre - Strange statement about Moss. First he is not clutch, not in the biggest games. Our SB offense was infinitely superior to this 07, 09 offense where it counts, and even the "Reche Caldwell" 06 offense was superior, and both these points are down the December stretch and even more so in the playoffs.
All I really need to say is that the Pats, with the great Randy Moss, scored a whopping 14 points in the SB and last years playoff game against the Ravens.
Both losses, but more important, the offense, so great as you say wasn't built for the playoffs.
Even The 06 offense, worst of BBs offensive teams everyone says, but they scored 34 points against an excellent Colts D, and our SB clubs had great clutch WRs when it mattered most, so please get off the double teaming Moss, and realize he has never been a great big game player.
I guarantee, if Jerry Rice had played in the SB 2 years ago instead of Moss, double or triple teamed or not, he would have found holes in the D to get very quick throws from Brady as the blitz came blasting though our terrible Oline. HE was a far superior receiver in every way when it mattered. Rice got the big TDs in the biggest games, and Moss got them when we were up 35 pts. HE has always been a loser playing on the highest scoring teams in history, and they always failed miserably when it mattered most.
Double team Rice and he'd still get his very clutch catches. Truly great players step up no matter what, such as Brady, Montana, Russell, MJ, Deon Branch, and losers choke when it matters most like Peyton who in his 9-10 playoff career, when his team loses all those 10 games, they only avg 12 freakin points a game. Also, Karl Malone, Farve, Bonds, a huge choke, and Moss, all seem to make bonehead plays when it matters or simply don't step up. All have great stats, and as BB, the late great redhead, and all the great coaches say, Stats are for losers, and Moss is a loser letting one DB shut him down at a time, Revis then Cromartie, and that TD against us was perfectly covered by Comartie, and it was the throw, not Moss, put in the only place it could be caught, not Moss' greatness.
Yes, if Branch can play anywhere close to his old self, when the biggest games come up, he is a true MVP!
