Super Bowl XLVII Provides Second Chance For Randy Moss

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Randy Moss has to be enjoying everything about this week at Super Bowl XLVII. Moss has been one win away from a title before and now gets another chance with the San Francisco 49ers. Moss sat out last season before signing with the 49ers this last offseason. It was probably best for Moss to do that after a terrible 2010 National Football League season where he bounced around from team to team. Moss said he missed a lot about the game while he sat.

“I think the main thing that I missed was the locker room, the meetings each week and going out here to put a show on for the fans. I really consider us as entertainers because I’ve always said no matter what a person may go through during the week at their 9-5 job, that they can always depend on the NFL to keep them smiling and perk them up. That’s the main thing, just going out to compete, being around my teammates and going out here and showing out for the fans on Sunday.”

Moss began his career like a comet in the night with a season to remember for the Minnesota Vikings and it looked like Moss would become one of the greatest receivers of all-time. He looked like that for a few years and looked like that again for the 2007 New England Patriots when he caught a NFL-record 23 touchdowns. Moss added that there are differences between that Patriots team and this year’s 49ers.

“In ’07 with the Patriots, we were riding high being undefeated leading up to the Super Bowl. I think that’s just something that we wanted to accomplish as a whole team, something to set ourselves in history. Being here with the 49ers-they were so close last year with a couple mishaps against the New York Giants in the NFC Championship game- I think by the way we practice and the way guys speak in the locker room, they were determined to get back here. I just wanted to be a part of it.”

Fans everywhere are very happy to see a productive Moss back in the game even if he isn’t the same player as before.
