Randy Moss retires... REALLY???
 
He's 34! And he is still a major threat... Should we go after him??? He wants to play for a contender, and we definatley fit that description...

Didn't he play for 3 different teams last year? No Thanks!

If its true, its probably because no one would give him big cheese - neither would we. + or - 1mil a year, I'd sign him.

SaintPauly 08-01-2011 12:24 PM

Yes, 3 different teams.... Pats, vikes, and titans....... 1 out of 3 of those were actual contenders, and the Pats dropped him over a contract dispute. Didn't want to pay him after he blew it up year before. He deserved a new contract, and nothing he said was really that bad, but they traded him anyway. Talent, is talent. Shockey was a head case too, but worked out great for us. I say, if he wants one year, and wants a chance at a ring, then we can do that for him. It's worth a look anyway.

Moss is finished and no one wants to deal with his headache. Good for the NFL.

SaintPauly 08-01-2011 12:30 PM

I completely dissagree Pinch. Moss is an "elite" receiver, and has been his whole career. At 34, he's NOT done. Is he a headcase? Yes. Is he a game changer? Yes. Don't believe me? You tube the 30 plus tds, he scored for the pats 2 years ago.

Still a threat... totally disagree.

Could he be a decent enough WR in the NFL still sure but the problem is with a deep threat WR who only ran the deep routes he never learned the step work and route running. That is his major problem now that he doesn't have the speed he once had.

He had had time in NE getting open by just using his speed. Really good WR uses the steps and routes to their advantage to get open. Eddie Royal is pretty good speed wise but he is a perfectionist when it comes to the routes.

Contract argument doesn't hold water because if he was their number 1 guy and catching all those passes and TD's like he was Oh they will find the money believe me.

He became expendable because he was a shadow of himself at the very best.

I'm with you SaintaPaul, on the cheap he's worth it. Not even trying to make him #1, just another option on the way to another ring.

Euphoria 08-01-2011 12:46 PM

I don't care how cheap... he has dirty laundry. Do you know how much it costs to do laundry these days. Our lockeroom is outstanding and lets not bring a head case into it, we just got rid of one head case Bush. We are plenty set at WR. We can use the money and roster spot on other positions.

Besides here is the issue about cheap enough. He is retiring because no one wants to PAY HIM. So what does that tell ya???
