    Re: Truth & Rumors: 12.26.06

    We would be better off, if Moss did return, even with his far less than stellar production in Oakland, you can't argue that we have anything even comparable to him.
    He's far better than Williamson, Taylor, McMullen, etc.

    The reason people still want him back, is not because they're crotch sniffers, but WR is arguably our most glaring weakness, and a lot of it traces back to him being traded.
    Pretty much ever since that, our WR's have sucked.
    How many people wished Robert Smith would come out of retirement for a year or two after he retired?
    Or that Cris Carter would have played his last games for us instead of the Dolphins?
    Of course it's of greater proportions, maybe that has something to do with the fact that Moss was essentially the face (whether or not he should have been is debatable) of the franchise for several years, maybe it's because for his first 5 or 6 years, he was basically re-writing the record books at WR, and now we have a bunch of guys that can't get open, and one that can, but he can't catch a pass to save his life.
    I don't think it's Moss crotch-sniffers as much as it is yearning for something better than what we have, and it seems logical and entirely possible that getting Moss back, may be a step towards getting better, at least at WR.

    I don't care whether or not we get him back, but you I can't see any logic in arguing against the potential of getting him back for a 3rd round pick.
    Rumor or not, and I remember at one point, "the media" came up with a rumor that Jay Cutler would supplant Plummer as the starter in Denver, and that Tarvaris Jackson would replace Brad Johnson for us.
    I also remember reading "rumors" a couple years ago, that we were going to trade Moss.
    Some rumors are just that, rumors, but some are rumors because they actually indicate that something is about to happen.

    Some rumors are just that, rumors, but some are rumors because they actually indicate that something is about to happen.
    For every rumor that came to, there were 50 that didn't. This rumor doesn't even make sense. Childress and Wilf do not tolerate off the field issues, and apparently Childress does not tolerate questioning. Moss has done both, and with his recent comments about his current team I think it is fairly safe to say it is a rumor that will not come true. I also would argue that he wouldn't even help the team, but I'll save that for in two months when there is a thread about it every 5 seconds.

    Logic would tell me its not going to happen under this coaching staff. We have seen Childress' actions, why would he treat this situation differently?

    Re: Truth & Rumors: 12.26.06

    I know there are a bunch of people on here who will automatically say "No, he's a cancer and we saw the damage he did when he was here. Why would the same team that traded him want him back anyways". I know that deep down, every person who says that wants to see 'ol Randy back in Minnesota catching the long ball.

    Let's actually think about this for a second. First of all, the trade is not out of the question. If Tice and Red were still making moves, I would say no way to moss ever being seen in a vikings uniform again. New owner, new coach, new personnell guy... Who says that they wouldn't want moss here?

    a 3rd round pick? Childress would be stupid not to jump all over that IMO. He's been banged up and he clearly has not liked the raiders very much in his time there but a change of scenery can be good and bad for a guy. Did anyone ever think that Randy LIKED minnesota? It's not like he wanted out...

    The "childress doesn't like T.O" argument is stupid. T.O. is not randy moss. TO causes a lot more trouble and goes to the media with it right away. He's an attention seeker who likes to cause trouble with his coaches. Randy has the bad side (duh) but he's not quite on the scale that TO is any more.

    In the end we probably won't see him here but hey, it's the last week of the season.. can't we have a little fun speculating about things that won't happen? I mean, isn't that our job as football fans?

If I don't have that much passion, you tell his (butt) to come out here and put on some pads on and go at me," Moss said in an interview with Fox Sports Monday, Oct. 9. "For Howie Long to say something like that is kind of bad because he knows, as a former NFL player, what it takes to get up for a game every Sunday," Moss added.

After making his only catch of the game against Vikings' CB Dovonte Edwards in the second quarter, Moss was pulled by head coach Art Shell. Moss stormed off the field and threw his helmet in disgust, stewing on the bench for the rest of the game.

    Raiders | Moss discusses Owens – McNabb feud - from www.KFFL.com

    The Centre Daily Times reports Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss put his two cents into the ongoing WR Terrell Owens- QB Donovan McNabb feud in an ESPN radio interview Wednesday, July 19. Moss said Owens was too worried about the money Moss made and said the Eagles quarterback was too worried about losing the spotlight. "McNabb in a certain sense didn't want to share the fame," said Moss on the "Dan Patrick Show." "And I really believe that. And by T.O. putting in his book and coming out of his mouth and saying it, I think it's believable." Moss was puzzled that anyone would want to break up the great Eagles connection of McNabb to Owens. "Any person worrying about the other man's money means you're not focusing on what you need to be focusing on," said Moss.

    Raiders | Moss must stay healthy in 2006 - from www.KFFL.com
    Mon, 17 Jul 2006 06:02:09 -0700

    Jerry McDonald, of the Oakland Tribune, reports Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss must remain healthy in 2006. Moss' primary objective is to return to his 80-catch, 1,400-yard and 15-touchdown glory. Moss silently played through rib, groin and pelvis injuries when he probably should have taken a month off. Based on the four healthy games he played (24.5 yards per catch) it's not unreasonable to expect a return to form in 2006. He's saying the right things in this offseason's radio interviews, granted in part to pump up his smoothie business. But if he gets hurt for the third straight year, expect Moss to be looking for a way out of town and the team to accommodate him.

    Raiders | Moss looking to once again be a deep threat - from www.KFFL.com

    Tue, 11 Jul 2006 20:28:03 -0700

    ESPN.com's John Clayton reports Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss says the groin injury that hampered him last season is feeling better, and he believes the healthy legs of QB Aaron Brooks could make him the game's most dangerous deep threat once again. Moss says Brooks' mobility will buy the Raiders' time for him to get deep and catch the 14 or 15 long passes he grew accustomed to with the Minnesota Vikings.

    Raiders | Moss wanted to join Atlanta or Baltimore - from www.KFFL.com

    MSNBC reports Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss said in a radio interview Thursday, July 6, that he wanted to be traded to the Atlanta Falcons or Baltimore Ravens when he left the Minnesota Vikings, website BenMaller.com reported, citing 790 The Zone in Atlanta. However, Moss said Falcons owner Arthur Blank told him he didn't want the receiver, the radio station reported. "I wanted to play with Atlanta just for the fact of Michael Vick's elusiveness, and I wanted to play with a guy such as Ray Lewis because he's on defense and I'm on offense," said Moss.

    Sports Xchange reports Oakland Raiders QB Aaron Brooks professes no worries regarding his ability to satisfy three ultra-talented but moody receivers in WRs Randy Moss, Jerry Porter and Ronald Curry. "My relationship with my receivers has always been a very tight, close-knit relationship," Brooks said. "I've never had problems with my receivers. They do what they're supposed to do and I try and get them the ball. I'm pretty good with players and wonderful with coaches."

    Raiders | R. Moss claims he is close to 100 percent - from www.KFFL.com
    Fri, 30 Jun 2006 17:18:20 -0700

    During an appearance on "The Afternoon Blitz" on SIRIUS NFL Radio, Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss claimed he is close to 100 percent health after struggling with a groin injury during the 2005 season. Moss said, "I'm pretty back to 100 percent. Last year was so frustrating because I think, with my injury, I could've probably taken a couple of weeks off but I personally had some high hopes for the Raider team to try to have a push for the playoffs to prove the critics wrong. So if people were wondering why I kept playing nicked up, that's the reason why. I wanted to help my team do whatever they can to make a playoff push. I fought through it. I've rehabbed this off-season, trying to get that part of my body, my groin area, a little bit stronger. So I'd say I'm back to almost 100 percent. I'm ready to go."

    During an appearance on "The Afternoon Blitz" on SIRIUS NFL Radio, Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss discussed playing with new Raiders QB Aaron Brooks. Moss said, "I'm really excited about having Aaron Brooks, a little more mobile than Kerry Collins. Taking nothing away from [free agent QB] Kerry Collins, I enjoyed playing with him and I enjoyed learning from and with him but knowing that the team had to move in another direction, bringing a guy like Aaron brooks in, what he's done in his career thus far and having receivers like Donte Stallworth and Joe Horn down there [in New Orleans], then being able to come and work with me, [WRs] Doug Gabriel, Alvis Whitted, Ronald Curry and Jerry Porter, hopefully that's something he can smile about also."

    Dolphins | Moss says he supports Culpepper - from www.KFFL.com
    Sat, 3 Jun 2006 20:55:45 -0700

    Sarah Rothschild, of the Miami Herald, reports Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss wants his former teammate, Miami Dolphins QB Daunte Culpepper, to "shut his critics up." Moss watched Culpepper's "Love Boat" scandal unfold and his saga with the Vikings unravel from afar. So now, Moss wants Culpepper to find redemption as he starts anew with the Dolphins. "The way everything happened in Minnesota, I really want to see him come out and do what he's supposed to do, and hopefully head coach Nick Saban can get some players around him so he can go out there and do what he needs to do," Moss said. Culpepper and Moss haven't spoken in several months, with their most recent conversation occurring when Oakland was among the teams interested in acquiring Culpepper. Moss said they talked briefly about the Raiders and whether it would be a good fit for Culpepper. Moss also said he and Culpepper remain friends and hopefully will reconnect before the regular season. "We're still cool," Moss said.

    Yep, I'm convinced.
    He needs to come back to the Vikings and all their woes are instantly solved.

    For the love of god at least think before saying he is a savior.
    He was good when he was with the Vikings and he isn't that good anymore.
    Add in his self-centered immature attitutude and he's the last thing the Vikings need at this point in time.
    Screw Moss.

    The reason people still want him back, is not because they're crotch sniffers, but WR is arguably our most glaring weakness, and a lot of it traces back to him being traded.
    Pretty much ever since that, our WR's have sucked.
    How many people wished Robert Smith would come out of retirement for a year or two after he retired?
    Or that Cris Carter would have played his last games for us instead of the Dolphins?
    Of course it's of greater proportions, maybe that has something to do with the fact that Moss was essentially the face (whether or not he should have been is debatable) of the franchise for several years, maybe it's because for his first 5 or 6 years, he was basically re-writing the record books at WR, and now we have a bunch of guys that can't get open, and one that can, but he can't catch a pass to save his life.
    I don't think it's Moss crotch-sniffers as much as it is yearning for something better than what we have, and it seems logical and entirely possible that getting Moss back, may be a step towards getting better, at least at WR.

    I don't care whether or not we get him back, but you I can't see any logic in arguing against the potential of getting him back for a 3rd round pick.
    Rumor or not, and I remember at one point, "the media" came up with a rumor that Jay Cutler would supplant Plummer as the starter in Denver, and that Tarvaris Jackson would replace Brad Johnson for us.
    I also remember reading "rumors" a couple years ago, that we were going to trade Moss.
    Some rumors are just that, rumors, but some are rumors because they actually indicate that something is about to happen.
    For every rumor that came to, there were 50 that didn't. This rumor doesn't even make sense. Childress and Wilf do not tolerate off the field issues, and apparently Childress does not tolerate questioning. Moss has done both, and with his recent comments about his current team I think it is fairly safe to say it is a rumor that will not come true. I also would argue that he wouldn't even help the team, but I'll save that for in two months when there is a thread about it every 5 seconds.

    Logic would tell me its not going to happen under this coaching staff. We have seen Childress' actions, why would he treat this situation differently?
    See PurplePeopleEater's post.
    Randy is not TO, far from it, aside from some comments that obviously came from a frustrated man, when the last time Moss had an off the field issue.


    Also, Randy always said he loved the fans in Minnesota, it was the organization that made him want to leave.
    We now have a different owner, coach, coordinators, etc., etc.

    Yes there are a ton of rumors that don't come true, but just about every NFL personnel move is a rumor before it happens.

    I don't see how you can think having a receiver that can catch the ball wouldn't help our team, even if it does get us just one more first down a game.

    Marcus Robinson isn't TO either and he has never said anything remotely as bad as Randy Moss did this season. Childress still canned him. ZERO tolerance that is something Moss does not fit into.

    Him getting along with fans probably plays no factor in him being signed here. It is his inability to get along with the powers that be that will keep him from Minnesota.

    This is a great point. There are very few, if any, burned bridges remaining. If we got him, it would help everybody...specificaly tarvaris jackson...but also guys like troy williamson who would have less pressure and more single coverage.

    Also, there are NO good receivers in free agency, and the only guy in the draft that would make an immediate impact is calvin johnson who will go 1 or 2 (probably to the raiders). Even though his numbers are very average, he is probably the most physically gifted receiever in the NFL. If a team can get one of the NFL's bets receivers for only a third round pick, then why the hell not?
