Bill Romanowski blasts Randy Moss for having ‘alligator arms’ in Super Bowl

Randy-Moss-NinersSunday night may have been the last chance Randy Moss will have to capture a Super Bowl ring, and his team came up short once again. The San Francisco 49ers turned Super Bowl XLVII into a close game, but the Baltimore Ravens were in charge for most of the night. One of the most devastating plays for the Niners came in the second quarter, when Colin Kaepernick threw an interception with his team already trailing 14-3.

The pass was intended for Moss, and although it sailed a bit high you have to wonder if he could have at least gotten a hand on it by extending himself. Instead, he watched it sail over his head and into the arms of Ed Reed. This infuriated Bill Romanowski, who laced into Moss during the Niners’ postgame show on Comcast SportsNet.

“Randy Moss alligator armed it, he didn’t go up for the ball!” Romanowski said while gradually raising his voice, via CSNBayArea.com. “He said he was the best receiver in the DAMN world — ok, you hear me? OH GOD! That’s what pisses me off! You’re playing in the SUPER BOWL, guys!”

Video of the play can be seen here.

Just as a 60-yard touchdown down the middle of the field is vintage Moss, so too is giving up on a play. He may feel that he is the most skilled player to ever play the position, but Moss never had a chance at being the best of all time due to a lack of effort. Would he have changed the outcome of the game had he broken up the pass? Could he even have reached it? We’ll never know, but we wouldn’t have to ask these questions if he at least made an effort. That’s simply Randy being Randy, and it may be one of the many reasons he’ll likely never win a ring.

    My son is eleven, and he said Randy “quit the route” when were watching it. I thought he was right on the money when he said it. It’s a shame, I do think Moss had the talent to be the best receiver of all time. A Billion dollars worth of talent with a ten cent brain and no heart. What a shame.

    Romanowski is the last person in the universe to be making negative comments about anyone. The guy is a racist pig. Any guy who spits in another guy face, is a coward and a punk. This a**hole broke the nose of one of his own teammates in practice. This is the equivalent of Ted Neugent making comments about President Obama. Of all people. Give me a break.

    So everyone at the desk including the black guy agreed with him, so that would make them all racists too? Some idiot had to bring out the race card and you are the one.

    What romo is or was means nothing. What he said about moss is a fact. When a guy say’s in a press conference,”I play when I want to”,and backs it up time and time again with plays like that,he is a pathetic ass that isn’t a team player. Is is moss’ fault? No it’s the team that expects more up side then down.

    regardless, this panel has a point. randy didn’t even try for the ball. suppose to be the greatest reciever?

     Nice. Are you done? We all know romo is a thug. But he played his ass off on game day. Injured or not,he gave all he could. And he speaks 100% truth about moss.

    Ball was over thrown. Reed caught it about 7 yards past Moss. QB’s fault so get off Moss’ back.

    My comment has more do with character than anything else. This has nothing do with black or white, idiot. Only someone like you would think my comment has anything to do with race.

  • http://twitter.com/TONYT203 TONYT203

    You’re right, The guy is a thug. And, someone with his history has no right to say jack about any other player. Ever.

    Your attempt to discredit what Tonyt203 said is idiotic. Firstly, he never even attempted connected racism to what was said about Moss, only you actually did in a failed attempt. He stated that he was a racist independent of the comment. Second, if a black man agreed with a racist who stated “the sky is blue” does that all of a sudden mean he shares all his views??? Why do you think you have the right to say how one should feel about a situation? Maybe if you asked why he felt that way or did research you could figure out why rather than assume he’s “playing the race card” (that’s another conversation however). I guess you feel as though you are the “Defender of Romanowski” or maybe since you think in categories you feel the need to defend all caucasions. Take a hint from Tony, he spoke on Romanowski as an INDIVIDUAL, he didn’t generalize or group.

    romo must still be on roids – the pass appeared to be 8-10 feet over his head. maybe if Moss took roids and cheated like romo?

  • snowbanksavage

     If you had half a brain or ever played you would straighten your son out…that ball was 8 feet over Moss’ head…he’s made more catches over db’s than any other eceiver in the history of football. Get real. Irt was a poor throw by Kaep.

    If you got off Moss’ nuts long enough to see that the man who has done less with more for fifteen years once again put about as much effort into that catch attempt as you did in scratching off your moronic, uninformed screed. But, then again, what do I know, football only paid my way through college (Big Ten). I love when fantasy football turds try to impart their keyboard wisdom on the rest of the world from the comfy confines of their mom’s basements. Awesome.

    Hello. Anybody home?? why did the whiners even pick him up?? why?? How many teams has he been with? He’s done and has been, same as mario,my god wake up,

  • parkLitchfield212

    It don’t matter now. Moss is done. Clear out the locker, turn in the keys, get out of town, superfreak.
    The moment you found a way to think you were better than, or even equal to Jerry Rice, and say it in public, it was over for you in SF, fool.
    Hit the road and and get set to start whining like Cric Carter over not getting into the HOF 1st ballot,or 3rd ballot, year after year.
    We can hear it now, how UNFAIR football as been to you, you  ungrateful millionare stoner.

    you and romanowski probably played together…i, on the other hand played in an actual football conference…the big 8…randy moss is easily the greatest receiver in history…ask any opposing coach, d-coordinator or db who they feared most in their prime…it damn sure wasn’t jerry rice who mostly got single coverage even in super bowls in his prime. moss changed the game..ask brady or belicheck…moss is the smartest and best receiver in history…its your screed that makes no sense…crawl back in you 49’ers hole and blame whoever…the 49ers defense (specifically db’s) were not up to the ravens challenge….maybe next year…go kaep, go 49ers and go moss!
