Green Bay Packers expecting to see 'old Randy' Moss

Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams is expecting to see the "old Randy" Moss when he faces the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. No, not a creaky version of Moss.

"I think that's what everybody in the secondary is going to be expecting -- the Randy who's done it at such a high level so many years," Williams said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "You can't look past that. Once a guy puts that on film year in and year out in the league, you can't look past that."

Moss put up lousy film for three different teams in 2010. He didn't put any film in 2011. His potential effectiveness for the San Francisco 49ers is one of the great mysteries of this upcoming season. It's been a while since Moss was truly dangerous.

Packers safety M.D. Jennings remembers one particular moment, back when Jennings was 16 years old.

"I can remember him wiping his butt on the goal post. I can remember that," Jennings said. "I was excited to see that happen. When you see someone do things like that, it's crazy."

We'd find it even crazier if Moss was in position to celebrate in the Packers' end zone again in Week 1.
