Moss has tasted Super Bowl disappointment once before.
Although he's not the greatest wide receiver of all time, as he erroneously claimed this week, Randy Moss is one of the best, and, in my opinion, a first-ballot hall-of-famer.
With that being said, the one thing missing from his resume is a Super Bowl championship.
Remember: Moss caught the go-ahead touchdown in Super Bowl XLII. If the Patriots had made one last defensive stand against the Giants, they'd have completed an undefeated season, and the outlook on Moss' career would be significantly different.
Now, he has the chance to win the Super Bowl, and do it without being the No. 1 option.
By all accounts, he's been a model teammate. He hasn't grumbled about a lack of touches. This week, he's consistently spoken to the level of talent on the offense.
If Moss makes a critical catch or two in a 49ers victory, he will have accomplished everything in the NFL, and will have done it his way.
