    Haha jk =p. I would rather have Matt Stevens than Randy Moss. But we do need a good #2 beside AJ. Gaffney is a good slot guy. Bradford should get the door, and... were left looking for a solid #2. Im thinking a guy with speed/deep threat, but also reliable 10-15 yard catch on 3rd downs =)

    i doubt we'd get or even want randy moss, do you see anybody on our whole team who has HALF the personality of RM ??? No and prolly never will with C.C as GM and Capers as head coach !

    Ya I know thats why I said Just Kidding =) I just thought the Texans need a little spotlight, some TV time, we'll be a headline everyweek with Moss. Just too bad not all of them would be good =p

    Do you know how much we would have to give up to get this guy as well? Besides what would Moss and Johnson do for Carr if he can't throw them the ball without getting sacked first.

    The Jets, Raiders, and Ravens seem to be the interested teams, and beleive it or not the Jets may be th biggest player, they made an offer for him last year but the Vikings weren't serious. Theyre seious this time around. Hard to imagine Moss in Jets green, but think about the NY reporters all over him.

    NO NO NO .... the Texans dont want a player like that in the locker room ,
    And im sure most fans want nothing to do with him either . The guy is very talented but his character will always and forever keep him from reaching his full potential..... i wish to see him as a 49'er ..... why ? Because they are SO BAD he wont see the play-offs for a LONG TIME . :hairpull:

    (i did say "Wish" ..... knowing full well he wont end up in San Fran.)

    He will pull a T.O. and demand to go to a certian team and as usual the managment will break , he will get his way (If Traded at all).


    NO Cancer in the locker room plz

    Randy Moss is being shopped by the Vikes. While he is a gifted athlete and playmaker he also has the unfortunate ability to cause a negative vibe in his clubhouse. Do you really want AJ and Moss together??? While Moss gives you the best WR tandem in the NFL with AJ he also could undermine all that has been put in place so far. And how much are you willing to pay, because they aren't going to take Seth "LIMP" Wand and Bennie "POO" Joppru.
    Peace.

    wow.. I dont think anyone read the original post :)

    Im hoping starling can be our #2 guy. he has the speed.. but in the meantime we probably need to grab an FA. Age isnt really an issue since we will probably only sign them to a 2 year contract or so.

    I agree with the fact that we need a #2 guy and i think gaffney can do it but we still need another good WR Bradford isn't cutting it....

    He would create another "hair" controversy within the team.

    I don't think Randy is that bad of a guy. I ran into him when they came to town and we said "what's up" to each other and that's about it. Football is a game of passion and in case you haven't noticed, the most dominant and respected players are on the passionate side. Some just have more charisma than others. Adding Moss would actually be a great idea because he would benefit from being in a competitive division, having a quarterback that can launch it, and knowing he can dominate and have somebody on the other side to compliment him. I'm pretty sure he will concede and recognize that this is AJ's squad in much the same way T-Mac deferred to Yao and Shaq to Dwayne Wade. I just wonder what we would send up there for him. I'm pretty sure Sharper, Carr, Johnson, and Davis are untouchable.

    Not nearly as much as you might think. Case in point . . Terrell Owens. The Niners originally traded Owens to the Ravens for a second-round draft pick. The Ravens got their second-round pick back from the Niners, and the Niners in turn received a fifth-round pick and defensive end Brandon Whiting from the Eagles in exchange for the rights to Owens.

    So, I don't see the Vikings getting any more than a second-rounder for Moss.

    NO to Randy Moss. Can't you just see a headcase like him disrupting the bench of the Texans? NO,NO,NO!!!

    I, too, am of the opinion that we give Starling first crack at being the #2. I just wish they had given him more time last year to learn the position.

    I would probably cost us AJ AND a high pick to land Randy Moss. That doesn't seem like progress to me.
