With Alex Smith at quarterback, Moss as a Niner makes no sense


I’ve always liked Randy Moss. There’s a touch of country charm about him, even when he’s saying things he shouldn’t say and doing things he shouldn’t do.

Even when he utter something ridiculous, like taking a page from T.O. and blaming the media for a reputation that Randy worked hard (or, all too often, didn’t work hard) to create, he’s still one of the most talented players to ever put on a football helmet.

But I don’t get his decision to sign with the 49ers. Last season, when there was talk that he may unretire, he was interested only in teams with elite quarterbacks. Alex Smith, while better than he once was, isn’t elite.

And so while Moss may be happy for now, he won’t be thrilled when the ducks start flying and the bounce passes start bouncing.

For more along those lines, here’s a little piece of Tuesday’s PFT Live.
