SANTA CLARA – Here’s the best of what I saw Saturday Night.
Randy Moss had his best practice of training camp. He beat Tarell Brown twice in one-on-one drills. The first time he turned Brown around on a double move, and the second time he beat Brown deep down the middle of the field but Alex Smith overthrew the pass. In an 11-on-11 red zone drill, Moss beat Carlos Rogers and caught a high Smith pass for a touchdown. Moss looked like the best offensive player in practice today.
Reserve nose tackle Ian Williams dominated the second team offensive line at times. On one play in an 11-on-11 live hitting goal line drill, Williams pushed backup center Daniel Kilgore five yards back, right into the ball carrier – Anthony Dixon.
Perrish Cox was a monster on the field today. He broke up a deep pass to the fastest player on the team – Ted Ginn Jr. – and then he landed the hit of the day on Dixon. Dixon was the lead blocker for Kendall Hunter on an outside run. Cox launched himself into Dixon as hard as he could and knocked the 240 pounder onto his back. The whole team roared, and Carlos Rogers yelled, “Get your weight up, A.D.!”
