Interview with Sinorice Moss

Post  Big_Pete on Thu Aug 05, 2010 6:44 pm

from insidefootball.com
This is not the same interview that was done today with other reporters Ė this one was done a couple days ago and was a one-on-one, so the questions and responses are very different.

Q: In speaking with Coach Quinn about what you need to do to win the punt return job, he thought perhaps you didnít always trust what you saw. Is that accurate?

A: I wouldn't say that. Coach has his opinions on what players are doing and not doing, but he didn't bring that to me so I wouldn't say that I wasn't trusting what I had. I just felt like the first thing I had to do was catch the football consistantly. I feel like after I do that, I can do whatever I need to with my speed and my abilities.


Q: You always seem to do well with catching passes in practice. Why do you think that hasnít transferred over to punt returns where a guy like your speed could be a big asset?

A: I think it's just having the opportunity to do it all the time on a consistent basis and not just doing it o e week and not the next. You need to get into a rhythm with anything and it's hard to do that if you're not doing something on a consistent basis. You need to catch it every day coming off a punter's foot, knowing how to read it and such. So I personally feel comfortable back there now when the ball is coming off a punter's foot and I can catch the ball and do the things I have to do after I catch the football.


Q: With more and more punters going with the Aussie Rules kicks, what kind of challenges do they pose?

A: Some of them hang up in the air longer, some of them wobble, some are shorter. It is all about reading when someone does an Aussie kick and basically going out there and catching the football. That's what the coach places the emphasis on.


Q: For whatever the reason, you havenít been able to get into a groove as a punt returner. I know itís early, but thus far, are you making the kind of progress you had hoped for?

A: I feel like now I am getting the opportunity to work toward the consistency I need to get at and be in a consistent role because I am practicing all the time as far as being back there on punt return. I had the opportunity last year to return punts on two games and I felt really comfortable after the second game back there. I think for myself personally being in a live game with the opportunity to return punts and have the live coverage and such. After that second game, I was comfortable and ready to roll. Now I feel like I have confidence I myself and I know what I can do after I make that first guy miss.


Q: On punt returns, youíre more reactive than proactive. How much of being successful is tied into film study, having confidence in the guys in front of you, etc.?

A: You definitely can learn that Ė thatís why we have practice watch film and have special teams meetings throughout the week. We watch what a punter may use Ė he may be a directional punter where he only punts to the right side and some teams use that a lot. Then you might have a punter who punts directly down the middle. So thatís why we prepare ourselves throughout the week. I just have all the confidence in the world in my teammates in knowing theyíre out there; and they have the confidence in me to where if I make one guy miss, , thereís a possibility I can take it to the house. So what I need to do is my job and thatís blocking my man. And I know those guys work at blocking their men.


Q: This is your fifth year and youíre on a one-year contract. Do you feel like this is your last opportunity to make it work with this team?

A: I donítí look at it as this being my last chance. I just try to keep a positive attitude and go to work. This is what Iím here to do Ė work. So every year I look at this as a challenge for myself. If I got a starting job, it would still be a challenge for me to keep that job. So I never look to get complacent or get too high about the things I do when I make plays for the team and I donít get too low when things donít work out my way. I just keep at it and keep working hard so that when I am given the opportunity, the coaches will see that Iím taking advantage of the opportunities they give me. All Iím trying to be is consistent. The opportunities havenít really been there that much and I canít speak of why that is, but I can take advantage of those opportunities I do get and look to contribute. This is my fifth year and Iíd love to go out there and have a consistent role as something.

eh, Moss makes a decent 5th receiver, nothing less nothing more.
And as a punt returner, no thanks. We would have been better off keeping Mike Jennings around a couple seasons ago. He was light years ahead of Moss.

I'd rather have a one-legged Tyree.

well I am going to be cautiously optimistic

Moss does have genuine ability and has great attitude and work ethic

I hope he can emerge as a kick/punt returner at least.

If Manningham remains sidelined and if Moss continues his good form throughout camp, I wouldn't be surprised if Moss and Barden leapfrog Manningham on the depth chart.

We could also see packages featuring both Moss and Manningham with their speed.

Manningham played great last year, Moss has done nothing in 4 years.

57 catches last year to 39 in 4 years, Moss will not jump in front of him unless Mario is unable to suit up.
