    Nate the Great Read

    Here is another article on Nate the Great. I picked him up last year in fanasty football from FA pool. This year I took him in the draft. I know he will excel.

    Re: Nate the Great Read

    The Minnesota Vikings say that no single player can be expected to replace Randy Moss, that they must divide the load. Imagine, for a second, coach Mike Tice meeting with the receivers and apportioning those responsibilities: '"'You, play when you want to play. You, walk off the field with two seconds left in our next game. You, pretend to moon the crowd."

    lol... :lol:
    Even babies know the difference.

    The fake mooning was hilarious, not really a distraction in my mind, but a fitting end to a Packer bashing.

    Also, I'm going to somewhat defend Moss on the Washington game. Even if we recover the kick (odds are something like 6 to 1), there was only 0:02 seconds remaining. If you pay attention to the clock, for any play, even an onside kick to be ran and the clock stopped after :01 is nearly impossible. You've got just as good a chance as winning the lottery. It was pretty unrealistic to expect us to recover a kick with time remaining. I could see us recovering it, but time almost certainly would have expired. Yes, it may send the wrong message to the team, but jeez!

    think of all the amazing seemingly impossible plays that have been made in sports. could you imagine if all those players just thought "eh, its impossible. lets call it a day"
