    Re: Randy Moss To New England

    The Raiders "pack of gum," which then became a 4th rounder, has now turned into Michael Bush.

    I'd say 3 years is right.

    In 2004 Randy Moss started the season strong - he had 7 TDs in 4 games.
    In the fifth game, playing against the Saints, Moss was hurt on a deep pass.
    The next two games he was active, but caught 0 passes.
    He didn't play the following three weeks.
    The next two weeks he played, but I remember him still looking pretty hurt.

    So, either:
    1) 49 receptions, 13 TDs, and 767 yards over 11 games is 'taking it off';
    2) missing time because of a bad hamstring injury is 'taking it off';
    3) pretending to pull your pants down at Lambeau is 'taking it off'; or
    4) Randy didn't take it off in 2004.

    In 2005, dealing with a lot of minor injuries and playing for a team with no QB and no O-line, he had 60 catches for over 1000 yards and 8 TDs.
    Those are good numbers, not bad.
    Just not as good as when he was on a better team and in a better condition medically.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    And in 2005 before his injury in week 4 or 5, he was on pace to break the single season record for yardage by a WR. He didn't start taking off until he came back from the injury.
