    Moss's last big play for the Vikings.

    Did Randy Moss just make his last big play to help the Vikings?
    By feigning interest in other teams and fostering some glimmer of hope in Favre's eyes that the Pack might sign him, and then resigning with the Patriots, did Randy hasten Bretts depression and ultimate retirement decision.
    Even in his tenure with another team Randy just keeps on making big plays for the Purple and Gold!

    Kind of ironic the effect that Moss has had on the Packers over the years.
    He single handedly caused them to remake their defensive look to compensate for the way he used to abuse their DB's.
    He actually had a positive impact on them over the last couple years as they enjoyed the benefits of that D.
    Now it has come full circle with Moss having a role in the ultimate stepping down of Favre and the changes that their offense will see in the coming years.

    What do you think.
    This one might rate right up there with the "Moon over Lambeau" play!

    Re: Moss's last big play for the Vikings.

    haha yea i was pretty pumped when i read in the article on Yahoo where it said "Reportedly, the resigning of Randy Moss to the New England Patriots coincides with Favre's decision to retire.
    Favre had said he'd play if the Packer's picked up Moss.
    They made no attempts to sign him"
    or something like that.

    Re: Moss's last big play for the Vikings.

    That is a great point turboe! I think Moss' decision to stay in NE really had something to do with Favre's retirement! Thank you Randy, for yet another great play for the Minnesota Vikings!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Re: Moss's last big play for the Vikings.

    I think it was the number one factor on why Favre retired.
    Favre wil never admit it but he dont have to, we already know it.

    So who thinks the packers will take a qb with their first round pick?
    I do.

    Re: Moss's last big play for the Vikings.

    everyone keeps saying "I think" it had something to do with his retirement, "I think" it was the main reason.

    Its been reported Favre said "I will come back another year if we get Randy Moss"
    He wanted one more ring, but didn't need one, so he threw the option out to the organization because he knows as well as we all do, Favre & Moss would be deadly.

    The Packers didn't even try to pursue him, so Brett stepped aside and gave the reigns to Rodgers.
    Theres no "i think" about it, Moss resigning had some affect on Favre's decision.
    The only contributing fact? No.
    He's won a super bowl, he's a three time MVP, holds every record for his position.
    And he's played for 17 freakin years lol. So no more thinking, know it had some affect in the outcome of his decision, but wasn't the only factor

    Huh? Feigning interest in other teams?
    Moss damn near signed with the Eagles.
