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.
