    The Greater Impact: Moss or Holmes?

    Who will make the greater impact on Monday and into the season:

    Randy Moss with the Minnesota Vikings after the trade,

    or Santonio Holmes with New York after the suspension?

    Randy, easy.

    Moss is a gamechanger who has made MANY QB's look better than they really are.

    Holmes is good, but not at that level.

    Neither have practiced with their team, so it comes down to who can learn and be productive on the fly the better.

    IMO, Moss is the guy you can say "3J X Dagger Zebra right Y zoom, Moss you run a post", better than Holmes.

    According to him, they did that alot in 1998 anyway.

    Moss changes defenses.

    He stretches the field, takes a guy out of the box, draws coverage away from other WRs.

    If your safeties are 5 yards deeper than normal, can you blitz (a) LB(s) with a slot guy like Harvin or TE like Shiancoe out there?

    If you're concerned about a deep threat WR(potentially 2 if Berrian could get his shit together) can you stop Adrian Peterson? With 3 down linemen and safeties playing deep he's going to be in the second level all day. The you don't want All Day to be all day... sorry.

    Gotta say Moss

    You saw how our offense worked last year with a WR like him

    Keep in mind Randy was tied for lead league in TDs last year

    Holmes will help them.. But I think we need Randy more right now then they need Holmes

    It may come down to which team can block better up front. I hope the Vikings gameplan that smart.

    Which player was a Superbowl MVP?

    I would say Moss is better, but Holmes should not be underestimated.

    Moss without a doubt, in part because of the rest of our personnel. I suspect our line will not be better, making Favre batter, making or receivers better. And lets not forget about #28

    I expect both of them to make an impact, but neither to completely change the game, at least, not this soon.

    I'd have to say Moss will have the greater impact, not because of who he is, but because the Vikings passing game has been so sluggish thus far. The Jets have been decent passing up 'til now. So it's a matter of how much improvement could be had by each team.

    The Vikings have more room for improvement, so their player should have the greater impact on that improvement.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?
