Rolling stones gather no Moss


I suppose I have to accept this as reality. The Minnesota Vikings really have traded Randy Moss. For the first few days after the announcement was made I tried to pretend it was just more rumors. Never mind Moss’s agent said it was so. Maybe it was a rumor. Maybe Reggie Fowler would speak up and tell Red McCombs to finally stop being an idiot and not trade the team’s star player while a sale is being considered by the league.

Doesn’t look like that’s going to happen, though. Moss is going west.

Sure, he was a problem. But in a league where the rule is to win at any cost, Moss’s mooning of the Packer fans, his walking off the field with two seconds left in an obviously lost cause is minor stuff. All you have to do is look at the team performance during the games he missed this season vs. those in which he played to see how important he is … was … to the Vikings.

And look what we got in exchange for the most exciting player in the league. Napolean What’s-his-name and a No. 7 pick. Trading for draft picks is always risky because you can’t be sure a college star will make it in the NFL. And that linebacker? Who is he? He’s no Greg Biekert and certainly no Brian Urlacher. Will he improve the Vikings’ leaky defense? Ain’t likely.

The Vikings have traded the best wide receiver in NFL history for what appears to be an injury-prone no-name linebacker and the possibility of getting a good young player with the seventh pick in the draft.

Sometimes it appears the team management is still as dumb as a rock (remember the Herchel Walker trade that remade the Dallas Cowboys). But now this rock can’t even keep the Moss it had gathered.

Hello Packers. Come give us the whipping we deserve. There’s nothing to fear in the Metrodome now.

    newsflash! never was =)))

    • Oh, yer a cold-hearted wench, indeed! Poking at me in my misery. How could you? 😉
      Nothing to fear, eh? That’s why over the past few years every team in the NFC Central/North starting snatching defensive backs in hopes they could find somebody good enough to cover Moss.
      Now, how do you do italics in a reply to a post?

      • you use with an i at the front and an /i at the end inside – [i]this will italicize[/i] but the rather than the []
        and how could i??? oh come on! you knew when you posted that, that i wouldn’t just let it ride =))))))))

        • Yeah, I knew you’d be all over that post, stealing the hanky in which I’m crying.
          I’ll return the favor when Favre retires. Without him, ya gots nuthin, honey. Nuthin!

          • yeah… part of me worries about that, the other part says we’ve got a helluva a new backup this year and favre can stick around for 1-2 seasons and really train with him… we may just have favre junior!!
            moss is still a schmuck!

  2. Being a die hard Broncos fan, I’m kind bummed about Moss. Now we have to cover that bastard when we play the hated Raiders.
    I’m hoping Bailey shows us he’s worth the giant price tag he wears around when that game comes down the line.
