And that half hearted attempt to catch a pass in the end zone to win the game for the Vikes.

Wow.

Major development if true.

Think he'l end up back with the Patriots?

Anybody want a receiver who only runs three routes? He runs those
three routes real good, though!

NO thank you! He has been referred to as a slouch and gave up on the play where Favre got injured.

Why pay a bunch of money for a player who only plays 1/2 the snaps when he is on the field?

I'll go out on a limb here and say yes... sign him!!

We're sitting at 4-2. Regardless of the outcome tonight (4-3 or 5-2), we're still competing with Indy and Tennessee to win the division. Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Steelers, Ravens, Colts and Titans are all looking to win their division or clench a wildcard spot (of which there are only 2).

Obviously $ is factor, it always is... but we're discussing should we at least be in the talks with his agent about it and his price. I say yes.

After tonight we'll have 4 remaining division games and some tough ones against the Jets, Ravens, etc.

Andre Johnson demands a double-team on almost every play. That's one safety over the top that always has his eye on AJ. Randy Moss is similar in the sense a safety always has to be aware and lean towards that side.

Moss going deep on every play will either (i) demand a safety to help or (ii) be a 1-on-1 matchup that Schaub could throw deep. AJ works well deep and going over the middle... this only helps AJ get open. Safeties looking at AJ and Moss means Jacoby/Walter/Daniels/Anderson will have a field day working over the middle and not to mention.... and almost just as important IMO:

Safeties playing back b/c of AJ and Moss = no in-box FS/SS = easier to run the ball. I see this as a great signing for the entire offensive production.

Foster would break even more runs, OD would be targeted against the LB matchups, AJ would get more 1-on-1 looks, and Moss in his own right would need to be targeted.

With our defense giving up so many yards and points, I think this would be a good move to help our offense stay on the field, eat clock, get more points.

Childress will be gone by the end of the season. I always thought the Vikes had plenty of talent to get to the bowl. I reckon that says enough about what I think of Chilress as a HC.

11-01-2010, 02:26 PM
No way he ends up on the Texans. Hell, they didn't even make a move for a decent CB or LB at a position of need. I bet Moss ends up on the Jets or Eagles, if he goes anywhere at all.

Couldn't agree with this more. Jacoby/Walters in the true slot role would phenomenal. There Moss would be the perfect compliment to AJ. Sign him to a cheap 1 year contract.

I wouldn't mind signing him just for this season, but it isn't going to happen. Bob McNair won't sign somebody with that kind of baggage and right or wrong, I've just learned to accept it, so I don't even bring up stuff like that.

We are the Houston choir boys, good or bad, that's just how we operate.

Titans - injury to Britt. Hearing your hamstring pop is never good.
Cowboys - marketing about the whole they never drafted him thing. Something to get the fans interested again and raise nacho sales.
New England - Hey Randy, you already are getting paid for your original contract through the Vikings now. Let us sign you for the amount of what you wanted on top of the contract we had with you, and everybody wins.

Yep. This is the season we have a HUGE chance at playoffs even with our suspensions and injuries. I'm actually one that really likes the way Smith/McNair look at free agents and don't go after the high profile 'bad vibe' type of guys, but this is a case I would make an exception. I don't expect the Texans to at all either, but I wish they would because I see immediate impact from him.

I believe that's correct it may be about $4 million for the rest of the season. In an uncapped year and as much as I think our offense would benefit from signing him, I would do it. I'm also a pretty stingy poster of Uncle Bob's cash. ;)

Again, I don't expect anything to happen here, but would love if we could get him for the remainder of the season/post-season.

I'd scratch New England and the Cowboys off the list.

NE hasn't lost a game since he left and I think they were extremely happy to get rid of that headache.

Cowboys are in a free fall, they have no quarterback and no chance at winning anything this season...so bringing in a malcontent like Moss would be a huge disaster. I don't think Jerry Jones is even that stupid. Especially since the one position on that team where it's apparent that Dallas is loaded with talent is the WR position. Dallas already made up for the whole "passing on Moss" thing.....that's why they drafted another perceived "trouble making, uber-talented college WR who fell through the draft" in Dez Bryant.

The Titans however sadly makes perfect sense. :( As well as the Chargers without V. Jackson.

11-01-2010, 02:52 PM

No no no no. Texans should try to get him JUST to keep him off of the Colts.

If Peyton can make an average WR into a good one, think what he can do for a HOF WR that really hasn't lost any of his skills? Far as I can tell, Moss just gives up. That's not happening with Peyton.

KEEP MOSS AWAY FROM INDY! I'll be fine if he goes to the Titans...just keep him away from Peyton.

A few things:

1) I'm guessing that Moss gave New England the middle finger, thinking he was going to join his boy Favre in Minneapolis and play towards a Super Bowl. HOWEVER, once he actually got to Minnesota, he saw how dysfunctional the Viking's are as an organzition, and realized he made a mistake. His comments in that press conference were stunning and unacceptable.

2) Brad Childress is a terrible coach, but I don't blame him for getting rid of Moss. My mouth was literally hanging open after I saw that Moss had to say.

3) There was a thread started here right after Moss was traded - but before he actually played a game - talking about how a great pair Moss/Favre would be. I said then that it was impossible to see how the two would work together until they actually play together. Overall team chemistry is VERY important. Sports isn't about simply plugging holes or making widgets. These are human beings, and human beings can't simply be plugged into a system, regardless of their talent levels. Look at the Cowboys.

4) Minnesota deserves to lose that team. No one is running the show up there: Not the coach, not the GM, not the owner. No one cares. This is one of the worst-run teams I have ever seen.

Uh, no. Randy complained about his lack of a big contract renewal in New England. The only reason people were surprised was because it left New England w/out a big reciever. Moss was unhappy the last several months in Boston.

And, he'd wanted to play with Favre for years, so he jumped.

WOW. NFLN is saying he hasn't been officially waived yet. That when the story broke it was news to Viking brass just as it was news to the public. The players are supposedly up in arms about the development and Childress is talking to Viking officials now about completing the move.

I see Childress in a VERY vulnerable position here brought on by the past and possibly this being the last straw. Clearly Childress exercised his right as coach and made the move without consultation. :mcnugget:

I'm no expert on how compensatory draft picks work. But I've heard that if a team claims Moss off waivers for the remainder of the season, and he then signs a big free agent contract next year the claiming team may recieve a compensatory draft pick as high as a third rounder.

If this is true (I have no link), this opens up just about all teams to sign him.

Compensatory picks are determined on net losses or gains of free agents. A team claiming or signing Moss will not receive anything for gaining a player. Maybe the Vikings will but not the team getting him.

Here is an example of the senario I was thinking about:

The Bills pick Moss off waivers, he completes the year with the Bills. After this year is up, Moss becomes a free agent. Moss signs with another team. Theoretically, the Bills have lost a player to free agency. My understanding of the compensatory pick program would allow for the Bills to recieve a pick.

I'm just asking a question, haven't heard this option brought up anywhere in media. If my thoughts are true, I think there will be more teams interested in him.

If I'm wrong, won't be the first or last. LOL

OK - that is a possibility. It will depend on their other free agent moves. It isn't an individual calculation. It is done based on net losses or gains. So if they sign someone it could nullify Moss leaving.

Moss is a hard working, smart football player, who HATES lazy preparation

I felt the same way about his statement. I refuse to chastise a guy for being honest.

It probably wasn't the best thing to say if he wanted to stay with the Vikings. But what he said wasn't necessarily wrong if that's how he sees it. That team is a train wreck right now, and how they are surprised by what they got in Moss just shows that they didn't do their homework.

I did hear a lot of regret in his words, though. Perhaps the grass was greener on the other side of the fence because it's growing on top of a septic tank. He probably realizes that he had a great thing in NE and should have just played his contract out and kept his mouth shut.

Watching the Randy Moss self-interview, I don't see anything wrong with
the content of what he had to say. The media, however, are masters
of changing the conTEXT of what anyone says, to cause the masses
to FEEL a certain way about a particular person or subject.

Moss is a hard working, smart football player, who HATES lazy preparation
for opponents. If you're not about winning, you don't want Randy Moss.

Watching it where?

I honestly believe that he was realizing where he was and who he was talking to - Boston and Boston's media. That's why he said what he said at the end, because he wanted them to print that out of respect for his former teammates. If you notice he also said that he knew stuff was written about him that he didn't like. I would assume it was the Boston media that wrote those things and that is why he didn't want to field questions from them.

I can see him getting pissed for a coach not listening to him when he said he knew the plays New England was going to run. As a fan, I would be pissed off too (although I'm not sure I could put it behind Kubiak to do the same). The game is about playing to your advantages and if you didn't do that after a 2-4 start, shame on you.

It would be an excellent fit, actually. The Titans run a well-disciplined,
well-coached, winning ship. I think he'd fit in nicely, especially if
Kenny Britt gets well. The box will get wide open for Chris Johnson.
and VY will have someone else to throw it deep to.

This is another reason why the Chargers is a MUST WIN game for
the Texans.

Did you read what I said, he will open things up. Britt was beginning to make defenses notice him and then he got hurt. Moss will take over where Britt left off and add that much more. It doesn't matter what he's done thus far, you can't leave Moss single-covered. His effect on the Titans can go way beyond catching passes.

123rd in receiving yards. I would have thought that was obvious.

Besides great NFL players don't get dumped twice in the same season by two different teams. I think Moss is really bothered by his contract to the point that he's "all about Randy" right now.

At this point I would say no. The reason I am excited about the acquisition is it fills the hole made by Britt's injury. Moss will be able to sustain and even enhance the defense's awareness of the Titans' receivers with Britt out. The first couple of games will tell us how defenses will play the Titans offense the rest of the season. If Moss is actually used then defenses will continue to keep an eye on him and remain more open. If Moss is used mostly as a decoy then defenses will creep that extra safety back in the box.

What I'm really looking forward to is Britt coming back, which seems likely to be sooner than previously reported. Britt and Moss on the outside creates havoc for opposing defenses. Washington is a slot receiver and really never should have left that spot, he will do good things once back there. Britt/Moss opens things up for CJ, as well as the tight ends, Washington and maybe Damian Williams if he continues to show his skills. That will be fun to watch.

I think the Moss / CJ combo is dangerous and to be respected accordingly. Obviously, Moss could meltdown and do nothing, but if he has any sense in that noggin of his, he'll tow the line and do what he's told to help the Titans. And if he does, I think he's a huge upgrade to the Titans offense.

That being said, the Colts are still the team to beat in the AFC South. I think the results will be the Colts at 11-5 winning the division, and the Titans 10-6 and Texans 9-7 will be on the outside looking in as the wildcards come from the AFC East and North.
