We saw next to nothing from Randy Moss in the preseason, but Jim Harbaugh has gathered more than enough evidence.
Harbaugh used Moss sparingly in the preseason, but he glowed over the 35-year-old veteran during offseason workouts. Moss was listed behind Ted Ginn for much of training camp, but he's earned the confidence of the coaching staff.
In today's game, naming a pair of starting wideouts doesn't mean what it used to. Teams regularly employ three-receiver sets on first and second down, and Moss will be used interchangeably with Manningham and Co. It does indicate a rise up the charts, and we're excited to see how he's used early against the Packers.
This also might be a simple head-nod to a respected veteran, but Harbaugh is up to his old tricks with Moss. Highly secretive; toying with expectations; revealing nothing. Just the way we like it.
