    how the mighty have fallen!!

    Did anyone else see Randy get caught from behind by Dallas's no. 41. He has definetly lost a step or two. Remeber the 73 yard TD against the Titans or the 68 yarder against the Saints in the 2000 playoffs.
    NFL life sure is brutal. Dude is 28 and he is considered an old man by NFL standards.

    Re: how the mighty have fallen!!

    By the title, I thought this was going to be a Packer Troll thread, glad it is not.

    What's his name has probably lost a step, but the guy had a bit of an angle on him. The guy was flying, his name is Terence Newman.

    PRO: After selecting the Jim Thorpe award winner (Roy Williams) in the 2002 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys helped solidify their young defensive backfield when they drafted Terence Newman - college football's 2002 Jim Thorpe award winner - with the fifth overall choice in the 2003 NFL Draft. Newman, the most decorated defensive player in Kansas State history, quickly established himself as one of the NFL's top young cornerbacks when he earned All-Rookie honors, tied for the league lead among rookies in interceptions and was named an alternate to the Pro Bowl all in his first professional season. After a solid second season that saw him become the first player since Everson Walls in 1981-82 to lead the team outright in interceptions in consecutive seasons, Newman is again prepared to take his place among the NFL's top cover men. But covering receivers is not his only ability as he also plays the run well, as evidenced by his eight career tackles for losses and his 146 career tackles. Blessed with tremendous athletic ability, Newman has outstanding speed (4.37 40-yard dash), that translated into two Big 12 Conference titles in the 100 meters (junior and senior seasons), as well as a Big 12 indoor title in the 60 meters and a fifth place finish in the 60 meters at the NCAA Championships.

    A consensus All-America selection as a senior cornerback, Newman was also an honorable mention All-America kickoff returner. He became the first player in school history to win the Thorpe Award while also finishing as a finalist for the Nagurski Award. An All-Big 12 Conference first-team choice and Defensive Player of the Year in 2002, Newman also became only the second player in school history to score a touchdown on a kickoff and punt return in the same season. In 48 collegiate games, he recorded 133 tackles, 10 interceptions, 32 pass deflections and a pair of forced fumbles. His 10 interceptions tied for sixth on the school's career list. He also gained 834 yards with one touchdown on 32 kickoff returns (26.1 avg.) and another 417 yards with three touchdowns on 27 punt returns (15.4 avg.). As a senior, he intercepted five passes and deflected 14 others. His 28.5-yard average ranked fourth on the school's single-season kickoff return list while his 14.9-yard average ranked third on KSU's single-season punt return list. Newman also posed a threat on offense as a wide receiver, catching four passes for 98 yards (24.5 average) and a touchdown. A consensus All-Big 12 Conference second-team selection as a junior, Newman shared the team's Most Improved Defensive Player honors with Terry Pierce. Newman ranked fifth in the Big 12 and 16th in the nation in passes defensed with 19, and he ranked fifth on the team with 51 tackles. He also intercepted three passes and blocked two kicks while also recovering a fumble and causing another. As a kickoff returner, he averaged 23.4 yards-per-return. On the track in the spring, Newman defended his Big 12 outdoor title in the 100 meters and reached the NCAA semifinals. Along the way, he broke his own outdoor school record in the 100 meters with a clocking of 10.20. He also finished second in the 200 meters at the Big 12 meet with a time of 21.42. Newman collected his first All-America honor by finishing fifth in the 60 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championship with a time of 6.67 and was the Big 12 indoor champ at 60 meters, clocking a 6.65 in the finals after posting a school-record 6.62 in the prelims. As a sophomore, Newman saw action in every game with one start, recording 20 tackles and a four-yard interception return. On the track, Newman captured his first Big 12 outdoor title in the 100-meters, setting a school record with a 10.22 mark. He represented the Wildcats at the 2001 NCAA Outdoor Nationals, reaching the semifinals in the 100 meters. During the indoor season, Newman set a pair of school records at the 2001 Big 12 Indoor Track & Field Championships, clocking a 6.67 in the 60-meter semifinals and a 21.20 in the 200. He finished 15th in the 60 meters at the NCAA Indoor Nationals. As a redshirt freshman, Newman played in every game, recording eight tackles and one interception.

    Re: how the mighty have fallen!!

    Newman was probably one of the fastest players in his draft class. Moss is still fast but to me, he seems a little slower than in his first few years.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Moss should do more to help his natural ability in the offseason or he will look old fast. Rice and Carter were prime examples of great work ethic. Randy can let his natural ability carry him about 2-3 year farther than Rice and CC did, but sooner or later, age catches up to you, no matter how much talent you have. After that it is discipline and training.

    Not our problem to worry about now.

    well I guess that explains some of it but he does still look slower than when he was in minny. It maybe the grass since turf is sooo much faster.

    Yeah, he probbaly has lost that half step. He was beating the guy that was responsible for covering him, he just couldn't outrun the fast 23-24 yr old guy.

    Newman was tearing down the field. I saw the replay of this and man, Newman has wheels. I think he caught Moss a little off guard, he's not use to people catching him. Moss is approaching the point in his career where he won't get by only on his athleticism. He'll have to implement his veteran savvy to make up for his inevitable loss in speed.

    Re: how the mighty have fallen!!

    Who cares if randy Moss has lost a step? If the Vikes were 4-0 we wouldn't even be talking about Moss, is this a feel good post? If Randy has lost a step, the Vikes have lost a mile!

    Cheers!

    More Vikes, less Moss!
