[QUOTE]Randy Moss will put up much better numbers than Lloyd if the 49ers sign Manning. Guaranteed. Good receiver. But he is not in that upper echelon.

For someone wishing to just make some quick money off of someone else, This appears to be just about as good a bet as any that you could just stumble upon.
When Randy Moss was 33 years old, He had 9 receptions in his 4 games with NE's Tom Brady throwing him the ball for 139 yards (34.8 yards/game; 3 TDs total). Afterwords, Moss went to start and play in 4 games for Minnesotta, accumulating 13 Receptions (3.3 rec/game), for 174 Total yards (43.5 yards/game), and 2 TDs total, Before going to Tennessee to play in 8 games, while starting 4, and amassing a grand total of: 6 receptions, for 80 yards, and 0 TDs total.
In Randy's unspectacular final 2 years on NE, the surrounding personell within his fellow receiving corp, looks eerily similiar to what San Fran's receiving situation will be when Moss gets there (just slightly but recognizably a little worse, while again- Rather than being 32, and 33 y.o., Moss will be 35 years old). Here's NE's Receiving deal in Moss's last 2 years on NE: This is what'cha got in relation- Ben Watson and then a combo of Hernandez and Gronkowski Verses Vernon Davis. Davis, who's singular skill-set of being a pretty 1 dimensional pass-catching TE far over and above a Receiving/Blocking TE, WAS and IS more productive than Ben Watson, yet the same 1 type of skill-set like Watson's game-set... BUT, In Moss's last NE year, the unique matchup nightmare combo of Hernandez/Gronkowski easily surpasses Defenders paying FAR closer attention to this set-up verses one offering just Vernon Davis to free some defensive heat off Randy Moss.
Other than that, ya got 1 guy on each team within Moss's last 2 years with NE and what San Fran will offer as a very similiar counter check against the opposition, to aide positively in Moss's behalf: Michael Crabtree verses Wes Welker. Say whatever you will about the nuanced differences between Wes Welker's receiving duties and specific skills verses and in relation to Crabtree's... Does NOT change the fact that Welker's LEAST productive year in receptions and total yardage output (86 Receptions, 848 Total Yards, 7 TDs, 9.9 Yards/avg), IS almost precisely the same as Crabtree's very best year (874 Total Yards, 72 Receptions, 4 TDs, 12.1 y/avg)...mind you, after that, Welker's NE production in his surrounding other 4 years in NE, were equal AND above: 110 Receptions+, 1165 yards+, and 10.5 yards/avg+.
After these guys, On BOTH sides of Randy's final 2 NE years, and what San Fran can parent Moss as support in other receiving San Fran options in this upcoming season, ARE- Role Players: Guys with the low 200 and change or less total receiving yards in a season: The last tally's from these guys: Taylor Price, Brandon Tate, Sam Aiken- Actually and unbelievably surpass, San Fran's next tier role players in their reciving game- Kyle Williams, Ted Ginn, Josh Morgan).
...Just sayin', IF ya think Peyton Manning's 37 year old (or whatever he is) throwing arm backed by some insane year long major neck surgery situation IF he actually gets employed by San Fran, WILL and Should be "Guarenteed" to make a 35 year old Randy Moss an unquestionably more productive player than a healthy Tom Brady in 2012 now with FAR greater weapons that the oppossing defense's have to account for, including a continually rising in output, 30 year old Brandon Lloyd... Again, I'm just sayin'- If ya wanna go 'head and simply throw away money simply in the name of hyperbole, fine with me.
