Santana Moss: Possessor Of Superpower

It’s time for you to dive into your memory banks for a moment and remember back to when Robert Griffin III wasn’t with the Washington Redskins yet. As hard as that is to do just try it.

On a memorable December night in 2011, Griffin III took the stage to accept the prestigious Heisman Trophy given annually to college football’s best player in a black suit and Superman socks?

Yes, of the overly muscular hero that is faster than a speeding bullet and possesses the superpower of flight.

Superpowers of course are fictional abilities that extend well past the norms of any human’s capabilities—well almost every human.

Let me reintroduce you to Santana Moss, owner of superpowers.

Over the past week on Redskins.com there has been a video series (Meet the Redskins) that believe it or not gives you a sneak peak of what the guys are like away from the field.

I guess it’s kinda like meeting the Redskins.

When Moss was asked what superpower he wishes he could have he said he already has one.

“If I could have any superpower it would be the power I kind of think I have now, the power to give and do anything for anybody.”

If you consider giving Redskins fans countless eye-popping touchdown catches and moving to the slot to have Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan on the outsides, then yes Santana you really do have a superpower.

Of course a good number of those touchdowns have come against the arch nemesis Dallas Cowboys. “The Cowboy Killer” himself is just like any of you when it comes to how you feel about the boys in The Lone Star State.

“The team I will always love to hate is the Cowboys.”

Now relationships can stale after years together as people grow tired of the repetitive nature of a longstanding connection, but for Moss and Redskins Nation, it just keeps on getting better.

“Every year they give me something more and more to love about them.”

I’m sure they’d enjoy a few more touchdowns and a Super Bowl trophy, too.

That’s true love.

    While I agree we have a chance to be special, I am not sure I share the highly optimistic numbers you stated. We still have a problem at RT, we desperately need a RB to provide AM relief (although i really like our drafted guys, esp jamison), and we don’t know if RGIII can last a whole season. I love the dude but he has to stay on the field.

    I do agree I see these two hooking up quite a few TDs this season. If Pathos or Trueblood provide a bandaid at RT, and if one or more of the back-up RB turn into a reliable option and RGIII

    As for Moss, IMO the best throw and catch from an execution standpoint I have ever seen was the TD pass to Moss on the side of the EZ against Dallas on Thanksgiving. The window to throw that ball and allow Moss to get his feet in was unbelievably small. And Moss’s ability to get in position then contort his body to finish the execution was poetry! Look at in slow motion and you can see just how crazy difficult that play was and they made it look easy!

    Tana is a good example of how the Redskins are more than just a need to win for me! Over the years of being a skin fan, there are players you feel like family with!
    Darrel Green is another name, and there are many. Tana is family in my eyes! The best moment was the night Brunell and him connected back to back in Dallas, TX!
    All night long the offense was a snore fest, but it was two plays that made the skin fans roar, and the Dallas fans cry! Tana is a stand out guy, with a great attitude! Much luv!

    THE NUMBERS I STATED ARE FACTUAL,AS THESE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE NUMBERS FROM LAST SEASON.HAD WE HAD A BETTER OVERALL DEFENSE! YES,THE SECONDARY WAS PORUS,LIKE A OPEN HOLE,RIGHT TO THE GOAL LINE FOR OUR OPPONENTS.WELL, THIS YEAR THERE WILLBE SHUT OUTS!THE OTHER TEAMS THAT THE PAPER SAYS A BETTER ARE GOING TO RUN INTO A TEAM OF TEAMS!I BELEIVE ALL OF THE SKINS PRIMARY PLAYERS WILL PLAY BEYOUD WHAT THE EXPERTS HAVE SAID.YES I AM OPPTIMISTC,HOWEVER,IT IS BASED ON MY LONG RELATIONSHIP WITH THE REDSKINS ORGANIZATION,SINCE SONNY JERGENSON CAME TO WASHINGTON.THE CORE BELIEF THAT WE ARE BETTER THEN WHAT EVERY BODY SAYS, IS A TRUE BELIEVER,AMEN,HTTR!

    @ wallace – My comment was not meant to be a personal attack. I have been a Redskins fan since the 1960’s myself, more over I have been a football fan for that long. I bleed Burgundy and Gold just like you and many others. Just because I also see we have some weaknesses does’t change that.

    My point is and was while we are a much improved team, we still have room to improve. I hope you are dead on. I hope RGIII get’s 50 TDs. The reality is that a) we are a running team first. The will never change under MS. B) If we score that many TDs in the air, it means our D stinks again as we are in shootouts.

    I would much rather win by getting an early lead then running the ball down their throat for the 4th Q, than having to air it out for 60 minutes.

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
