Vikings: One team, two jerks

Posted on: October 6, 2010 8:33 am
 
Brett Favre acts like a petulant child and is rewarded with an exit out of Green Bay and eventually lands with a near Super Bowl team in Minnesota.

Randy Moss acts like a petulant child -- many times -- and ends up with Favre in Minnesota.

The NFL is fantastic.

Two jerks, one city, not enough ego to go around.

Only in sports are jerks repeatedly rewarded despite their childish behavior. Moss and Favre are no different.

The irony here is unavoidable. Moss was cast out of Minnesota because he drove his car into a meter maid and quit the team. Now he's back years later after having more problems in New England.

Bill Belichick wouldn't trade Moss now unless Belichick believed he couldn't get the most out of Moss for the remainder of the season. This trade isn't Belichick being efficient. This is Belichick worried Moss would destroy his locker room. After all, Moss has destroyed locker rooms before.

Two jerks, one team.

Good luck, Vikings.

You're going to need it.

And gotta love writers like Freeman and Crisco who don't want Minny to win a superbowl.  Idiots.

One apparently poor writer in Freeman. Once again we are subjected to his ramblings. This is a good move for the Vikings. They are in desperate need of a quality receiver and one who is a threat deep. This will open the running game and give Brett someone to throw to, until Rice and Percy Harvin is healthy. Until acquiring Moss he had no options. Belicheat is now going to try and look like a genuis again. Please he is stockpiling draft picks. I hope it blows up in his face, teams should play hardball with him, If he wants to get rid of a player, let the terms of agreement be yours not his. He would have glaldy given Moss to the Vikings. I would not have given up a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick. I would have asked what are you willing to give me for taking him off your hands Smile Well Good Luck to the Vikings. I hope Moss will prove to be a good acquisition. I hope this trade bites New England in the butt. Their defense is not what it used to be and Tomgirl Brady (Who gets off the turf everytime looking for the ref to make a call) Will need more than Wes Welker to throw to. Freeman JUST SHUT UP!Yell

Mike Freeman, are you serious with this??  Really?  Im a Colts fan and after reading this i completely disagree.  You are an idiot!  Next you will write an article about Dereck Dooley being on the hotseat at Tennessee in his first year as coach,  right?  Moss has progressed as a MAN over the years and the only thing you hear about Farve is whether or not he is coming back for another year.  How does that make them both jerks..?  If Farve was a "jerk", he would have retired yrs ago, but he gives any team a better chance to win, unless you have a manning, brady or brees.  So that leaves 28 teams (eli counts as a manning) that could use a great quarterback.  So shush it you gypsy columnist and go make some cake!

Never cared a whole for Favre and didn't like Moss.  But, the only jerk in this story is Freeman.  But, maybe, Freeman is lying, maybe, he really doesn't feel this way.  I just can't tell as Freeman will lie on a resume so who's to say how he really feels.  How can you trust Freeman to tell the truth when he has already been caught lying on something more important?

To summarize in the words of Friedrich Nietzchke...I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you."

Wow, Freeman, way to rain on my parade. I'm totally ECSTATIC to have Randy Moss back here in the Twin Cities. My heart is racing at the same pace it was last year the moment after we signed Brett Favre. Forget about egos, we're talking boatloads of TALENT. With the Twins playing tonight, what a day for Minnesota Sports!!!

No one cares what any of you think about the Vikings! At least we have an owner that will go for it all. We have never won a championship, and that's all we care about! If it doesn't work who cares, at least it will be entertaining. PS at least they didn't rape or kill anybody. So you think there jerks? So what over half the NFL is full of jack**

For a moment One City Two Jerks meant, New England with Belichick and Kraft.  My mistake.  This is nothing different than New England has done in the past with potential problem children.  Sacrifice wins for team harmony.

Is this dude serious? Randy Moss has had nothing, but class since going to New England. He handled the situation he was in very well compared to idk...Vincent Jackson!! If he wanted to be a petulant child he would've held out...again like Vincent Jackson!! Moss expressed his feeling on his situation yet was stilling willing to go out there and do what he does best (Ask Revis how he is feeling). Rather than let a single productive year speak on what he should make (Vincent Jackson..catching the hint here?) Moss was willing to let THIS YEAR'S play speak on how he should be valued going forward. Farve undoubtedbly is a jerk, but Moss has grown far from it. This guy is a poor exucse for a columnists (and not just talking about this one) and need to start getting some FACTS straight before you go blasting future HOF players. Start putting the labels on those who deserve them.

Here we go bring out the Packer fans so we can hear more idiotic comments and how they are going to run away with the division. If I remember right they lost to the Bears and if anyone saw the Sunday night game last week they know that the team from Chicago SUCKS. So tell me again how the adding of a motivated Randy Moss to a Vikings roster doesn't put them over the top? And who wrote this article Antonio Freeman ok that might explaine everything.
