No quit in Moss -- at least this time

Randy Moss has quit before. He's quit on plays. On a series. Or two. Or three. Or a few dozen. He's quit on seasons. He's quit on teams.

But I refuse to believe Moss will go out this way. His reported retirement should be taken extremely lightly. The first major injury a team gets, Moss will be back. The first time any team calls and feeds Moss' ego, he'll be back.

Team: "Randy, we need you."
Moss: "You do, really?"
Team: "Yes."
Moss: "Sign me up."

Moss is a moody and emotional superstar. He's likely ticked that no team was breaking down his doors to sign him. In speaking to people around football before his alleged retirement, there was little interest in signing Moss to big money. Or even medium money. Teams were trying to get Moss on the cheap, and that probably ticked him off to no end. So he huffed and quit. Because that's what Moss does. He quits and comes back, quits and comes back.

And he'll be back again.

He is following in a long line of players who the Patriots let go, and the rest of the league says, "Wait a minute.  If Bill thinks they are done, then they must be done."  Colvin, Deltha O'Neal, Shawn Springs,A.D., and now Moss.  Only difference is, Bill was able to sucker Minn. out of a draft for Randy.  Severe injuries will be the only way Moss gets picked up by a team this year.  And they would have to be severe!

actually, if he's willing to take a mid range deal and wants to win a SB he should sign with the eagles. he's just the RZ target they need. but he's gotta ditch the diva attitude. if not, then stay retired/retarded.

Agreed the is Rice then everybody Else Moss isnt even close to the best ever.  Sure Moss broke the single Season touchdown mark aa few years ago with Brady but it took Moss 16 games and 98 recpetions to break the mark Jerry put his 22 touchdowns up in 12 games and 65 receptions.  Think about that for a minute.  Sure you can say Moss had more talent if you want but Jerry willed himself to be the best ever if moss had put forth that kind of effort he would still be playing and would have a nice fat contract to show for his playing.  Dont get me wrong Moss was and was one of the best but the Best not even close like I said its JErry and everyone else is fighting for second and second place is more like third when you compare it to Rice.

Werewolf you're a typical Iggles-Idiot. Moss at 32 over Irvin at 22? How many rings does Irvin have? Did you ever watch that man play? He was a PHYSICALLY DOMINANT receiver. Get a clue.

Michael Irvin?  You're kidding right?  I want whatever your smokin.  I would take Moss at age 32 over Irvin at 22.  Andre Johnson is a talented reciever, but lets not get carried away with the manlove.  The guy doesnt' put up numbers Randy did in his prime, at least not the TDs.  You guys gotta stop drinking the hateraid.

Chad got no where near the $ Moss got, and the Pats will get no where near the production either. It works both ways.  The Jets should have signed him, he would have been a nice fit.

Silly for them to go after Plax coming out of prison, but not a proven commodity like Moss.

Still waiting for Freeman to break a story. Everything he writes is reactive and predictable.

I believe when Moss was sent packing from NE, he "Was" the highest paid player in the locker room at the time and he wanted more for several years. Chad got no where near what Moss wanted for 3 years.

Michael Irvin was better than Moss.
Andre Johnson at his best over Moss at his.
