Breaking News: Vikings Waive Randy Moss

Nov 1, 2010

I thought things were bad for Brett Favre, but it appears Randy Moss has been dumped by a team for the second time. The Patriots shipped him to Minnesota for some practice jerseys and a few jugs of Gatorade. With the trade deadline behind them, the Vikings just cut him.
What a fall from grace for one of the best receivers to ever play. The dream marriage between Favre and Moss never materialized. Although he wasn’t active in the passing game, the loss will hurt the Vikings as opposing defenses can game plan for Percy Harvin without the fear of a deep threat (at least until Sidney Rice is healthy).
Moss will likely be claimed, but it’s hard to have any faith in him. Most thought the return to Minnesota would inspire Moss, but his effort came into question again yesterday. His praise of the Vikings after the game was probably the straw that broke the camel’s back.
If you own Moss, you have to hold onto him. That doesn’t, however, mean that you have to start him once he finds a new home.

    I have to wonder how long till Favre is released, They got Moss to satisfy Favre and it did not work, he is a shell of even his worst year self,
    By next year Favre and Childress will be gone.

    As long as Chilly is gone, I’m happy.

    Seriously … it’s really hard to watch both Childress and Wade Phillips just stand there with those dumb looks on their dumb faces. The Dallas/Minnesota game was unwatchable for that very reason.

    I mean, was Mike Tice so bad? :)

    If he had the coaches Childress has, let alone the players, I don’t think they’d have half the issues they do. Childress won’t listen to a player who has been on a team for a couple years. He thinks he knows more than the most decorated QB in NFL history. Dude is a little too full of himself.
