U.S. Presswire File PhotoStill got it? Randy Moss goes in to Lambeau having scored the most TDs against the Packers than any other player

No one knows what to expect from Randy Moss on his return to Green Bay’s Lambeau Field. Moss has scored 15 touchdowns against the Packers, the most of any other player. He also needs 57 yards to have the most yardage against the Pack of any player.

But Moss can’t predict how he and the 49ers will perform this Sunday. “Well, I don’t think any receiver really feels like they’re where they want to be going into the season,” Moss said. “The only thing I can really hang my hat on is we put enough work in to go into Week 1. That’s all I can really say.”

In a brief chat with the media, Moss said repeatedly that he was just glad he made the team, which some other receivers of his same vintage did not do. Terrell Owens was released in Seattle and Chad Johnson was booted out of Dolphins’ training camp.

Meanwhile, Moss continues to draw raves from teammates and his coaches about his on-field ability and his locker-room demeanor.

“He’s good,” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. “He’s darn good. We feel great about him.”

Moss did not miss a day of training camp and he is a loud and humorous presence in the locker room.

“I love being around this group. These guys are so young and so energetic,” Moss said. “They love to have fun. When you boil it all down, we’re nothing but big kids.”

Moss will start in Green Bay, the site of his most notorious on-field antic — the wiping of his posterior on the goal post at hallowed Lambeau back in 2005, his last year as a Viking.

“I can remember him wiping his butt on the goal post,” said Packers safety M.D. Jennings, who was 16 in 2005 when Moss pulled off the stunt. “I was excited to see that happen. When you see someone do things like that, it’s crazy. … That’s like a slap in the face if someone comes in your house and does something like that.”

Moss, who originally said that he didn’t want to discuss his history in Green Bay, touched on it anyway.

“I just don’t like people bringing up the old stuff,” Moss said. “I tried to have fun with the fans — tried to have fun. But at the same time, I want to go out here and compete. I think it’s a good thing that my comeback — or whatever you want to consider it. … Lambeau’s a nice place to start it.”
