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.

Vikings: One team, two jerks

You are a complete idiot Freeman. I could give to craps about Favre or Moss but what is there to gain by bashing two people you have never met? What an absolutely pathetic take on this trade. This guy is clearly a packers fan. What a joke. I hope the two jerks hook up for about 10 TD the rest of the season...

Whatever happened to reporters just reporting facts and not writing crap because they don't like a certain player.  This writer should be fired for this article.  Keep your stupid little opinions to yourself.  Why would you call a guy a jerk have you ever met them.

Vikings: One team, two jerks

Great Reporting. Give me your BLOG for one day so I can act like you(JERK). Well it takes one to know one and let me give you some insight. Since you must drink the Kool-Aid on BeliCHICK (with the emphasis on CHICK), this guy is by far the biggest jerk in football. He treats his old assistants poorly when they leave to take HEAD coaching jobs. I can understand if they left to do the same job they have with him somewhere else, but he goes nuts for them to take a promotion! He is viewed as the genious because of his three Super Bowls but lets not forget he had losing records everywhere until Brady arrived.

Belichick has stripped down a once proud defense with his numerous trade moves or cuts because someone dared to question their direction. Dumping Seymour was HUGE loss. Now he dumps Moss because he says the same thing EVERY player does when they are in the final year of a contract and don't get an offer for an extension. Moss isn't dumb, past experience with Belichick told him he was going to be waived or let go with no new contract. We will see now that they have zero deep threat.

Abd BTW, why didn't you call Brady a jerk when on numerous times said he HAD to have Moss. Why didn't you rip Brady when he demanded a new contract. Again, poor reporting and absolutely no value in what you wrote. Hopefully, YOUR bosses start to see that soon.

Brett is not the best at managing the game. That is why he throws so many interceptions. Peyton Manning is much better at managing a game than Favre ever was.

Moss and Favre = disaster

Getting randy moss is a great move. Who wouldn't want him? However, the Favre of last year is long gone. He is old, tired, and washed up. I have absolutely zero faith in favre to do anything but act like a crybaby this season.

First off this doesn't guarantee the Vikings anything. No playoffs yet. Bellichek didn't get rid of Moss because he was awesome anymore. Moss has lost a step and Favre has lost 2. The offensive line is older and the QB and the coach don't agree on anything. Way too many problems in Minnesota for them to pull a rabbit out of their hat this season.

First of all who ever said that this would make the Vikings like Detroit is a complete idiot and prolly doesnt have any business typing comments...

Look through Favre's career and the recievers he had... NEVER has he had a reciever the caliber of Randy Moss... Favre wanted an elite reciever SO bad in Green Bay and he never got it... Despite that he still managed to put up big numbers and win games...

As for Randy Moss... Im sure he has NO problem catching passes from Favre... This is only going to make the Vikings a stronger Super Bowl contender...

Vikings: One team, two jerks

Mike Freeman is doing what he is paid to do.  He is not paid to break stories like Adam Schefter, he is paid to blog so that we will visit this page over and over again arguing over the simplicities of his article.  His article is designed and written to provide an arguing point and a point in which to discuss the pros and cons of this trade.  If we had no one to write this blog, we would not be discussing openly the Moss to Minny situation like the homers that we are.  It not only draws in Vikes or Pats fans, but Bills, Panthers, and Eagles fans (like myself) to discuss this topic.  This is what Sportsline wants, and he is doing exactly what he is paid to do and there is no doubt he is laughing all the way to the bank.

By the way... to the one misguided soul, Randy Moss is not the greatest WR of all time, Jerry Rice is.
