so is Brett a better influence on the younger players? Holding out for how many years now and keeps playing just to increase his records (that no one will ever break anyway).

Moss is a sensitive player, can't supress his feelings...when he's happy he's among the greatest, when he's unhappy, well we have all seen what happens then.

The media really portrayed his trade as a win-win and that Randy was very happy to be "returning home" to the Vikings. I guess that was a lie and maybe Randy just got sick of pretending that he was all for this trade, when he obviously wasn't.

Sadly, both Favre and Moss will end their careers not on top, the way they should have gone out.

I've been following the NFL on an intense basis for 45 years. And up until Moss opened up his big bazoo yesterday, I thought I'd heard it all. Guess not.

It doesn't seem that many years ago that Moss made the famous statement as a Viking, "I play when I want to."

The more things change, the more it stays the same.

Moss is probably the most talented (notice I didn't say 'best') WR in NFL history. That said, he can be sickening at times, enough to either get rid of him or to bench him to keep his ego in check. His lacadasical attitude is absolutely nothing new, the guy slacked off when he was on the Raiders as well.

Bad idea. The Rams are a good young team on the rise, Moss isn't playing with a full deck right now and would be negative for growth.

One wild card Jacksonville. It's pretty much all in for Del Rio, Garrard needs all the help he can get.

but the Vikings knew what they were getting with Randy Moss so why the heck did they take him in the first place? Do you think Favre wanted him?

Well, I'm a Rams fan and, although I don't like self-absorbed players (PrimaDonnas), they are a fact of life in the NFL. One on your team is acceptable and the Rams certainly could use him. They are down to their 3rd string receivers and they are gimpy. He only has about 2 more years left in the NFL, I say, let him spend it with St. Louis (an up and coming team) and that will both help and educate Bradford.

I think Moss was initially cool with it, but once he got there and saw what a self-absorbed ass Favre is (just like Moss) and how he would be under Favre's thumb (just like the whole Vikings organization is), he decided he couldn't take it. If Tavaris Jackson was the QB, I bet Moss would have been ok with it.

BTW, from what I keep reading, Childress is gone and is not that good of a coach anyway.
