Despite turnover, veteran Santana Moss remains a steadying influence
Mention Kyle Shanahan’s offense and Moss drops superlatives like a late-night infomercial: “dynamic,” “wide-open,” “opportunity to be great,” “able to prosper.” But some parts of the offense aren’t exactly as seen on television. A grab-bag of veterans such as Armstrong, Jabar Gaffney, Donte Stallworth, Terrence Austin and two rookies, Leonard Hankerson and Niles Paul, are battling for playing time alongside Moss at receiver.
“We have a lot to work on still,” Stallworth said. “But we’re moving in the right direction. That’s the most important thing.”
Added Kyle Shanahan: “I think everyone is more comfortable with what we’re doing, and I think it’s showing.”
Moss is where he looks for an example. For stability. Even a mentor.
“There’s not much,” Williams said, “he can tell me about blocking somebody.”
