As Randy Moss embarks on his latest run at the one thing that would make his career complete, he’s not talking much to the media about his seventh career trip to the postseason.
He’s talking plenty to his teammates about it.
Via Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group, Moss has been sharing information about his playoff experiences to his teammates, particularly the younger ones.
“Randy talks to us all the time,” receiver Michael Crabtree said. “I’m in the room with Randy all day, every day. So it’s a lot of things we talk about.”
Coach Jim Harbaugh, who graded the veteran wideout’s first regular season with the team as an A-plus, said that input from Moss is helpful to the “[f]irst- and second-year players,” because they “wonder what it’s like.”
Despite the fact that the 49ers are one of the league’s elite teams, there isn’t much postseason experience in the locker room, given the perennial struggles predating the unexpected 13-3 season in 2011.
And there still isn’t much Moss is saying publicly about anything. Per Inman, Moss provides an “occassional postgame sound bite” and he has conducted only three group interviews all year — a clear violation of the league’s media policy about which the writers covering the team have had neither the inclination nor the nerve to complain.
