Mossed Out

At some point I had to chime in officially on this Randy Moss thing. I want to make it clear that I am and will always be a Randy fan. He is the most gifted receiver ever to play in the NFL. Few will deny that fact but unfortunately few will deny blaming him for everything that has took place Minnesota or New England. It seems Brad Childress may not know what he is doing. He traded a 3rd rd pick to get Moss, and I like most old Minny fans were happy Moss was home and we were waiting for the fire works...well we got them...sort of. Randy was brought in to stretch the field and allow Percy Harvin to play the slot position where he is most comfortable. While Moss' numbers dont jump off the page check out Percy's before Moss/after Moss numbers. They improved. The problem is the Vikings were not the team from last year. The defense went from being top 5 to not mentioned at all (where the hell is Jared Allen?). The offense sputtered like like a 1970 Gremlin with Bret Favre driving like a 88 year old man on Sunday. Bringing Randy in was like adding a spoiler to a car that just needed to be junked and when the car wouldn't start it was the spoilers fault. Lol, even Stevie Wonder can see where the blame should be placed...at Brad Childress door step like a burning pile of dog shit and then a little piss should be sprinkled on Favre's lawn. Rumor has it Childress (who I might start calling Chilli because this drama reminds me of the short lived reality show What chilli wants) didn't like Randy's post game remarks after the NE beat down. According to many reports Chilli will come down on players who speak out against the "team agenda". Funny how fast Chilli forgets how he threw Favre under the bus after that Greenbay game saying Bret needs to play in the system. When has Bret ever played in a "system"? It's well documented that those two have banged heads before. Next is Bret. He is a HOF player whos time has ran out. At some point you need to step aside. How the hell is a 41 year old man playing pro football w/ a bad elbow and 2 broken bones in his foot? If Chilli had any balls he would have benched him for health reasons and poor play and started Tavaris Jackson but he how could he after he hand delivered Bret $18 milly in straight cash homey (Randy voice)? He has been picking up Bret's dry cleaning (do you dry clean Wranglers?) and washing his John Deer tractor every Sunday. Most outsiders think Childress has lost his locker room even before Randy got there and I think this was a way to show who has the power...lol guess he forgot to tell the Vikes owner Zigi Wilf. So Randy Gets waived and people say he was a distraction to the team. Lol oh really? So what would you call the on going Favre saga? They look at New England and say they had to get rid of Moss because he's a cancer. The truth is they did what they do to all great players once its time to pay...trade them. Was Randy Showing his displeasure with them not giving him a contract extention? Yes. Do you know why? Randy was making $18 mil a year when the Pats aquired him from Oakland and he restructured his deal for "the team". Was Tom Brandy a very good player before Randy? Yes, but with Randy people put him on Peyton's level as the 2 shattered records. Since the trade Tom and Bill Belichick have both raved about Randy's skills and how much of a "team" guy he ways. Yet, the media has tried to spend that story going as far as reporting on an "alleged" argument between Randy and Tom over Randy's beard and Tom's hair. Really im not making this up. They said he "quit in Oakland. Who doesn't? Shit, John Madden isn't walking on that sideline anymore. That was the worst place for him to land...until this most recent stint with the Vikes. Last but not least I blame the NFL. We live in a society that loves "reality". Why is it that players should have to talk to the media after a bad loss? If you watched Randy's interview he was clearly emotional and if his history in the NFL tells us anything its that he is going to speak his mind. So when he chose not to speak with the media last week he was fined $25 grand. You want the media/fans to connect with players like never before and then you want to sensor it. Can't have it both ways. It's very sad how this is turning out but it may be for the best. As for everyone counting Randy Moss out, I say look how he responded when you thought he was washed up in Oakland and he landed in New England. He was straight cash homey!
