Santana Moss ties personal best with 84 receptions this season

Even after all these years, Santana Moss is still the Redskins' top wideout.

The 10-year veteran adapted well to Coach Mike Shanahan's version of the West Coast offense, and Moss needs only one reception to establish a new personal best. He had another solid performance (five receptions, 85 yards) in Sunday's 20-17 victory in overtime against Jacksonville.

Although the Redskins have only one game remaining in another disappointing season, Moss continues to deliver.

"You just never know how it's gonna work out, man," Moss said after the game. "When I heard I would get more opportunities in this offense, more chances to do some things, you know, that's great. But you just never can say for sure what's gonna happen in this game.

"So it's just a blessing to stay healthy and just be able to contribute to this team. You just want to take advantage of every opportunity you get out there, 'cause you don't know how many more you're gonna get. That's just the way I looked at it."

Moss has 84 receptions for 1,041 yards (a 12.4-yard average) with six touchdowns. He also had 84 receptions during the 2005 season, his first with the Redskins.

The former University of Miami star also had at least 1,000 yards receiving during the 2003, '05 and '08 seasons. He established a personal-best total for yards with 1,483 yards in '05.

Moss can set his personal best in Sunday's season finale against the New York Giants, "but that's not what it's about," Moss said. "We're just trying to keep getting better as an offense. We got one more game to work on some things, and that's what we're gonna do."
