Santana Moss' Continued Adaption Results In Touchdown

Posted Aug 25, 2014

Whether he’s playing a decoy role or needed in the clutch on game days, 14-year veteran Santana Moss' mindset stays the same while his situation continually changes.

Fourteen-year veteran Santana Moss approaches each game with the same mentality, regardless of what is role is going to be on that particular day.

“I’m one of those guys, that when opportunity knocks, I just try to be there,” Moss told Larry Michael, Voice of the Washington Redskins, after the Redskins’ Week 3 preseason game vs. the Baltimore Ravens. “My role is changing year after year, and (I) just try to make sure that I’m in it and know that, when I’m out there, I have to be accounted on.

“I always tell myself, regardless of my role, I think like a No. 1 (wide receiver.)”

Moss gave the Redskins their first touchdown of the night midway through the third quarter, nabbing a Kirk Cousins pass for an 11-yard touchdown.

Lining up in the slot, Moss took a sharp cut on an in route, creating separation from his man, and scampered past three Raven defensive backs into the end zone for the score.

In total, the two-time Pro Bowler logged three receptions for 27 yards.

While all three catches came in the second half, Moss doesn’t concern himself with the amount of playing time he’s getting -- or when he’s getting it.

“I think like a guy that’s been out there the whole game,” he explained. “Because it’s easy to get cold and not be ready, so I always try to be ready.”

His experience rubs off on some of his younger teammates, as Cousins remarked that having Moss play with the second-team “gives him a lot of confidence.”

“It’s fun when you go in with the twos and you have a guy who’s played 14 years in there with you,” Cousins said after the game. “It gives you a lot of confidence as a quarterback, and he showed again tonight why he’s on our team and why he’s Santana Moss.”

Moss, along with five-year veteran Andre Roberts, is listed as a second-team wide receiver behind Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson on the unofficial depth chart.

But his value goes far beyond where he’s placed on that list.

“He is a very valuable asset to this football team not only from an experience standpoint (but) from a leadership standpoint in that receiver room when you have young guys looking up to some veteran leadership-type guys,” first-year head coach Jay Gruden said during training camp. “Santana is a perfect guy to look at. ... Right now, I like what he’s doing. I don’t think he’s lost a step. I think he’s still quick. I think he still knows how to run all the routes, which is good because he’s run them all.

"I like the fact that he’s a Washington Redskin.”
