A conversation with Santana Moss

Wide receiver Santana Moss has had an excellent camp thus far, and looks poised for another big season, coming off his breakout campaign last year. Here is a Q-and-A with the Jets standout wide receiver.

Q)What do you think of the team's new found depth at wide receiver?

Moss: Now that I know that [defenses] have another guy to pay attention to in the slot in Wayne, it might make it a lot easier for me to get open and get more one-on-ones. But if not, they are still going to come at me, double me, and try to take me out of the game, and [the other receivers] can take their chances. It will free them up, and when it's time, they will free me up.

Q)What are your reflections looking back at your breakout year last season?

Moss: It was good. I needed it. I came out and did what I wanted to do. I had a chance to go against [double and triple-teams], and that makes you a better player.

Q)How would you compare last year to your rookie season?

Moss: Let me take one leg from you, and you tell me how happy you are. What I do is run. You can get old tapes from my mother, all I have ever done is run. When that is taken away from you, what can you do? Also being miles and miles away from home, you don't know who you have. What I wanted to do, I couldn't do.

Q)What are your goals?

Moss: I want to be one of the best receivers in the game. I want to be one of the best punt returners in the game. I want to help this team win the championship.

Q)Does training camp ever get old?

Moss: No, it gets better. I look forward to it. I like going through the days, going home tired, and the next day having to do the same thing over again.

It's the start of a new year, and we are hoping for something bigger and better than the past.
