What About Moss?

When I heard that the Vikings planned on releasing Randy Moss earlier today, the first thing I thought was ” here we go again”. Rams fans have already been through this twice this year, with Terrell Owens and Vincent Jackson. Then I thought to myself, “at least this one will be easy to dismiss”. Then, as I’m watching Monday Night Football, I hear Mort say that he thinks the Rams might be the frontrunners for Moss. Obviously, at that point I knew I was going to have to write about this continuously until Moss finds a home. So… let’s talk about it.

Here’s my stance on Moss. As most of you know, I have been on the Rams about adding a true number one wide receiver since before the draft last spring. Moss certainly fits that mold, but I’m going to go ahead and pass here. First, he has proven over the years that if he’s not on a Super Bowl contender, then he’s not interested in playing. I know the Rams are right in the thick of the division race, but he won’t be happy here. Also, he is obviously still madly in love with the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick, as evidenced by his press conference/rant after Sunday’s game. He won’t be happy unless he goes back there, and he will be a major problem for anyone else.

If you could guarantee me that Moss would give 100 percent and not cause any problems, I would say pull the trigger in a second. The fact of the matter is, this organization has made it known they aren’t going to bring in guys with issues, and Moss might be at the top of that heap. I would be shocked if we put in a claim on Randy Moss, but I have been known to be wrong before, so we will have to wait and see. Let’s see what you think.

    my view on this is that the rams should. for the simple reason that even if we can get moss onto the field it will open up options for amendola, gibson, or any other wide receiver. also percy harvin had success with moss just being on the field and after moss left new england wes welker has averaged just over 34 or so yards a game. even if he brings baggage he will bring more offensive opportunities for the rams

    Randey Moss is a cancer. The Rams are now playing like a ‘team’. If Spags let Richie Icognito go, he will not bring this idiot to our team. I say no way to this self centered player who will not be any kind of leader. With his age and experience that is exactly what he should be bringing to a team. But he will not!! Thanks for your column, I truly enjoy it !!!

    Randy Moss is a brilliant player. Period.
    But his age is a concern. Develop the youth, it will be more beneficial in the long run.
