We don't give the ball enought to AJ. . . As much as I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE MOSS, it's not possible. AJ and Moss are both number 1 receivers but if we can't give the rock to one number one, there's no way we can give it to two.

Is Starling a better reciever than Armstrong?

Armstrong is a sure-handed possession receiver. He is really more of a slot receiver.

Starling is kind of raw but has homerun speed. He could potentially play on the outside but I don't give him much of a chance of success.

Starling has tons of potential. He has the speed for sure... and from what I saw of him he has hands too. Can he run routes and be dependable though? I dunno... that is what im waiting to see. I havent seen anything out of him though that would lead me to beleive he cant be a #2 guy in the future.

I think our no. 2 of the future should be a certain Mike Williams. Look its very possible the guy will fall to us, I don't care what the analysts say.

Give up the Mike Williams dream, because that one is not happening. I don't see us even making a terrible offer to the Vikes for Moss either, just to see if they would bite.

Moss will likely fetch less in a trade for the Vikings than most people think.

Look at Sammy "Corky the Cancer" Sosa for the Chicago Cubs. They nearly had to give him away and eat much of his salary to boot just to ditch him. Moss hasn't sunk to that cancerous a level for the Vikings yet...but he is headed in that direction.

What about that isn't possible? I really don't get the negativity on this one. Sure we have other needs but why is it so unbelievable that we don't take a caliber reciever with our first pick? We need a no. 2, and here is the perfect chance to have a killer tandem. I agree Randy Moss is a cancer, so lets get a talent like his instead.
As far as the possibility of him falling, you've got three running backs, some o-lineman, two quarterbacks, and some defense talent + one other reciever that would probably go before Williams, thats already 10 or 11 picks right there.

one thing this is not baseball and there is no way that they would trade him for anything less than a first round pick and a defensive starter

the reason we wont take Williams is because he is a top notch possession/red zone receiver. Basicly.. he is Derrick Armstrong but better(supposedly)

that isnt what we need in a #2. We need top notch speed, and Williams doesnt have it.

I think Randy Moss would be a great fit in Atlanta with the Falcons. I think he and Vick could make something very special happen.

I think Randy Moss would be a great fit in Philadelphia with the Eagles. I think he and T.O. could make something very special happen.

Default Starling #2 Receiver

I do think that Starling has the talent to be the #2 receiver. The Texans Offensive Coordinator was quoted as saying that Starling has more raw talent and is faster than even Andre Johnson. Now if he develops into that type of receiver is yet to be seen. I think he will get his shot next year especially if he works hard and improves this off season.

AJ AND Moss would be LETHAL. I'd like to see that.....but mainly because we aren't in the same conference. :P

It is safe to say that Moss is out of the question for the Texans.. one we lack way too much depth all around the board to give up picks and two.. it would take more than 13th in the draft to get a proven player..

yes it would be nice to get him and I wish we had enough depth to do this, but we don't..

I think most people misread what this thread was all about from the beg. A joke =) I would never trade for Moss, and I woulden't have him play for my team unless its cheap, and if he acts up, hes gone.
