I never wanted randy to be traded, never thought it would happen ever since Fowler came out last week and said he wouldnt be going anywhere.. But now, i dont know what to think. My step dad is a buissness owner down in minneapolis and is a major sponser for the timberwolves/vikings events, at the dome and at the target center and he has ties with people who know whats going on with the Fowler issue, except now, this popped up out of no where, I mean, i know...
I have only one other post, and no,im not jumping ship just because randy is going to prolly be gone, but why this deal? This is pathetic.. Atleast we should have gotten woodson or somebody else good other then just a linebacker, we already have 2 linebackers who should be getting the job done if they worked at it enough, but they always seem to get lost.. So now, bring in another one??? How sooo.??
Well this is the news of what people are telling my step dad around winter park and its not only sad, its a disgrace, Red mcombs is screwing this organization over, Why? Because he loves oakland, he loves it, seriously, why do you think the one team that we never thought would get randy, is now ready to get him, with this kind of crap trade..Why do you think Mcombs wanted to move the team to california in the first place? What doesnt make sense is that he does this right after he makes a deal with fowler, and now the team is down one of its key playmakers, especially in the buissness standpoint, theres a rumor that by the march 2nd if this deal is a for sure thing, Fowler is going to withdraw his bid for this team? Why?
Because #1: there wont be as much refenue coming in from the dome because i highly doubt we will sell out half the games next season.
#2: Randy moss was one of the players that attracted fowler to become owner. UNLESS Fowler has been lieing constantly *which i hope not*
#3: Because red will keep the price at where it stood when the team had moss and Red knows, that the rest of randy's salary will go right into his pockets..
Its all about profit for people now adays, its sad that we couldnt have gotten an owner who cared about winning. Honeslty, i am sick of seeing all of these threads about how randy was the cancer, its randys fault, blah blah blah.. Because truthfully, we had so much potential this coming year, if we would have kept our offense intact, and actully SPENT money on free agency for defense.. Rember....
Our defense is what lost those 4 *i think it was 4* close games that we lost by a field goal, our offense was the one who put us in position to win, but our defense never could finish the job.. And to those who think Nate burilison will be a star, theres a whole new job for him to do, and thats to NOW get double covered, we will see who the star will be then. And no,im not saying hes not good, because dont get me wrong, he is, but trust me, Randy moss opens up things, and also, remeber when moss got hurt this year, i think we went like 1-3, 1-4 or something? I mean, come on? Seriously..
Daunte is a good enough qb to take this team to the next level but he needed help to do it, When Gus ferotte was in last year in 2003 when culpepper was hurt, what happened? We blew out people still.. Why? Because of how sneaky our offense can be, one play and we were in the end zone..
Im not saying we cant be as powerful as we have been on offense, but were going to still need another reciever via free agency to fill some of the shoes left behind by the triple covered freak..
Straight up, i just feel, this was a step backwards for this organzation when HONESTLY And all you mods and 1000000 post people know it, we could have spent money on our defense, other then dismantilling our offense...
