Randy Moss returned to the NFL for games like this, not performances like Sunday night's. Five days after Moss proclaimed himself the best wide receiver of all time, he spent most of Super Bowl XLVII as an on-field spectator for the San Francisco 49ers, unable to make the plays necessary for the first championship of his 14-year career. Moss left the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after a 34-31 loss to the Ravens with just two catches for 41 yards. His biggest impact came on a 32-yard gain early in the fourth quarter - a great catch, but not enough for one of self-proclaimed greatness.

The San Francisco 49ers' Randy Moss said Tuesday that he is the best wide receiver to ever play in the National Football League. On Sunday night, he might not even be the best receiver in the game, but he could have the biggest impact. No offense to Moss, he is probably the second best receiver in history. Statistically, only Jerry Rice is better when it comes to receiving touchdowns (197 to 156) and Moss' 15,292 receiving yards are third behind Rice's 22,895 and Terrell Owens' 15,934.

Question: In my very shady back yard, grass is very difficult to grow - tall trees, compacted soil, and slight slope. Since moss seems 'determined' to grow, how about accepting it, nurturing it, instead of grass? I realize the deeper roots of grass would be better to hold soil, but moss is better than bare ground, right? Answer: You're right. It's impossible to grow grass in shade. Grass is a prairie/meadow plant and demands 3-4 hours of direct sunlight a day. Moss is an acceptable ground cover, in fact moss is prized in some countries.

There is speculation the Ravens have interest in receiver Randy Moss, and I have no problems with the team trying to pursue him as long as they don't mortgage away the future. I can't see the Ravens doing that because that's not general manager Ozzie Newsome's style. Even though Moss has been away from the game for a short time, he's still probably one of the fastest receivers in the league, and all opposing defenses have to respect speed. At the right price, I wouldn't mind seeing him line up opposite Torrey Smith with Anquan Boldin in the slot.  The Ravens had similar plans for Lee Evans last year, but he spent most of 2011 on the sideline with a high ankle sprain.

Even with today's news that Randy Moss plans to come out of retirement, the bumper crop of free-agent wide receivers appears to be thinning out as we learn more about how teams plan to use their franchise tags. The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles plan to use their franchise tag on DeSean Jackson, one of the NFL's top deep threats, who made 58 catches for 961 yards and four touchdowns in 2011. There is also media speculation that the Kansas City Chiefs may use the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe and the New Orleans Saints could do the same with Marques Colston if they can avoid using it on Drew Brees.

  Chargers viable home   Ken Murray Baltimore Sun No self-respecting team would want to deal with Randy Moss. For every big catch or touchdown he makes, you get 10 times the trouble from the insolent, disinterested Moss. At 33, Moss can still make plays, but he takes off more plays than he makes. Who wants to put up with that? OK, so there will be somebody out there who thinks $3.38 million for half a season is a bargain. Remember, the waiver process starts at the bottom.

Want to help Chad Henne's development? Sign Randy Moss. Want to turn some field goals into touchdowns? Sign Randy Moss. Want to help Brandon Marshall? Make the playoff run come into focus? Add some electricity to a team needing some? The Dolphins should sign Randy Moss, who admittedly has gone through two teams this year hoping to find a new contract and a smile. But the Dolphins have a wild card here. Chad Pennington and Moss played together at Marshall. That can be huge in the negotiations that no doubt are taking place right now. Moss might get claimed before he gets to the Dolphins on the waiver wire.

Life without wide receiver Randy Moss begins this week for the New England Patriots, and football fans are eager to see how the franchise will fare. The Ravens, who will be the first opponent to meet the Moss-less Patriots, will be just as curious. "In my opinion, it's up in the air," cornerback Chris Carr said Wednesday. "Since the trade, they had a bye week, so who knows how they're going to look. … So it's going to be interesting to see. We're going to find out just like everybody else how different their offense is going to be. " So while the shock of New England's decision to ship Moss to the Minnesota Vikings for a third-round pick in next year's draft has subsided, the questions over how the offense will take advantage of quarterback Tom Brady's strong arm without a downfield threat like Moss continue to fly. What won't be debated is Moss' still-unfolding legacy.

It's tempting to look at the New England Patriots and wonder what they were thinking when they traded all-everything receiver Randy Moss to a team they could -- conceivably -- end up meeting in the Super Bowl. It's also tempting to look at the trade as a huge break for the Ravens , who travel to Foxborough, Mass., this weekend to meet the Moss-less Pats in another road showdown against an elite AFC title contender. Given the choice between facing a team with one of the most dynamic receivers in the history of the NFL and facing that same team without him, it is fairly reasonable to rejoice in the latter.

Scribblings from the Week 5 notebook: No matter what the statistics say, Randy Moss attracts double coverage. The Patriots are going to miss that. Said his former teammate with the Vikings, ESPN's Cris Carter: "There's no way you take Randy Moss away from any quarterback in this league and that quarterback gets better. It's not possible. This is a game about talented players. But you can only do so much if you don't have the weapons. " If you think New England is going to fall apart, remember the Patriots won three Super Bowls without Moss and without a star receiver.
