When he went to Mn. I thought allright he gave up his bye week, now I don't know where he'll be playing next week or does it really matter since he's a complete bust this season.

I believe the trade with NE had a provision to drop down to a 4th rounder if certain performance goals were not met with the Vikings.

I hope he ends up with a contender wherever he goes...
on the other hand you could say they were, what, 1-3 with him and he's done nothing for them.

oh, and there's the whole giving up on plays and not trying hard all the time. He pulled it twice yesterday alone. They even showed this on espn.

he's a moaper and sulker and a crybaby, I think the vikings did the right thing. Probably never should've brought him in in the first place but some things are bigger than the team.

the guy is clearly unbalanced and not that talented anymore, end of story.

I am not arguing that Moss is sane or his on field play.


I'm simply saying that this was a dumb business decision. The Vikings more than any other team in the NFL (And they all know), should know how Moss is going to act. You do not trade for a player that you know is a loose cannon and then cut him because he's a loose cannon.

As far as the Vikings not getting anything out of him... They have a 50 year old QB who couldn't get the ball to Moss. And Their offensive scheme is old and predictable. Moss's ability or play on the field has nothing to do with the Vikings cuttin him. Its because he is a loose cannon but this is not news to any one.

And for a Moaper he sure is damn good... Here are his NFL records

For a team trying to get a stadium built, they are shooting themselves in the foot with this move. The coach approval on ESPN is 6%, lower than Wade Phillips.

How awesome would it be if he went to the Bengals? Can you imagine him, TO and Ocho on the same team? Carson Palmer would kill himself.

according to Minn. media he wasn't hustling in practice and was becoming a bad influence on the younger players.

loose cannon is one thing, everybody needs to practice hard, if true, and I believe it was, you can't have that type of influenza around.

"couldn't get the ball to Moss" really???, he gave up TWICE yesterday, TWICE, heck, even espn the all-loving, all-butt-kissing network showed it yesterday, maybe if he'd tried he couldn've caught a few passes from that 50 year old.

yes he's talented, supremely, one of the most talented to every step on the field but too bad he doesn't have it upstairs, the guy could've broken alot of Rices records, he could've been that good. But talent isn't enough.
PS: another theory, it was the 50 year old who always wanted him and pushed Minn. management for him and maybe this is Childress/mangtmt's way of pushing back at Favre?

bottom line: he's a quitter and a part time player and they couldn't stand it, I don't blame them. This sends the right message to the rest of them, esp. the youngers guys, that his attitude and behavior aren't going to cut it.
