Making his weekly appearance with Mut & Merloni on Tuesday, former Patriots receiver Troy Brown said that Bill Belichick makes a point of shutting down big-name former Patriots when they come in as the opponent. Given that, Brown said that former Patriot and current 49ers receiver Randy Moss will likely be paid extra attention by the New England defense this Sunday.
"If there's somebody on that team that will beat the Patriots on Sunday, it will not be Randy Moss," Brown said. "He will not score a touchdown on Sunday night.
"Just from what I know, when [Belichick] plays against former [Patriots] that have played for him, those particular players will not beat him. I saw him put two guys on Terry Glenn when he came back with Dallas to play here. We were going to win the game. It was just the fact that he didn't want Terry to catch a touchdown or make a big play."
This season, the 35-year-old Moss has 21 receptions for 326 yards and a pair of touchdown catches. Brown said that though Moss "can still run," Belichick will always see to it that former Pats stars are quiet against New England.
"That player will not be the player that beats him," Brown said. "Randy Moss will not beat him on Sunday. That's for sure."
