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.

True that moss has quit on teams, and on plays, now it looks like he has quit on himself. But as lee corso says, "NOT SO FAST". This is his way of saying i didn't get the offer i wanted from the team i wanted, and i don't wanna go to camp anyway, so i'll quit. This is Brett Favre part 2. Moss wants to play for a contender. He's hot over the fact that New England not only ditched him but gave chad the 3 year deal he wanted. When he gets the right offer from the right team he'll be back. It may take a key injury to open a slot but eventually his phone will ring.

As for best, i agree with pabs that it's rice, then chris carter and then maybe the often forgotten steve largent. All moss really is is a deep jumpball guy, he's not a total recevier.

Wow, 6 years i've been on this site, and never been compelled to respond. But your post has to be the most assinine comment i've ever seen. Randy Moss the BEST EVER. You're surely joking?!

Did you ever see or hear of a guy named JERRY RICE!! Who is by FAR the best receiver of all time, and in the Top 5 players at any position period!

I could name more receivers better than Moss, but why bother. Not saying he wasnt a game changer, he was! But BEST EVER is a complete joke. Please dont waste our time with more of your uneducated ramblings.

     Freem
an's got a point, but I'll miss Randy Moss. I still think he has something special to offer. He might cut down his plays...or some smart team will use him to the best of both Moss and the team.
     Moss is a great one - extra special, and he still has something left.

I do agree that Moss will be back and I do agree with just about everything in this article. Moss is among the greatest ever and barring anything extraordinary will be in the Hall of Fame, but there is no denying he quit on multiple plays and didn't always give full effort. It seems hard to believe he's gone forever only at age 34 and is probably just bitter no one would offer him big money anymore. Somebody who will need a big playmaker down the stretch will probably offer him the big bucks and then we will see Randy Moss again.

"Maybe he should pad his resume, huh Freeman? That might get him a job.... and then get him fired too, right?
I know you can relate.

Crawl back in your hole...."    WHAT YOU HAVE ANGER ISSUES? OR MOMMY ISSUES. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE ARTICLE OR THE WRITER DON'T READ IT!  MORON.

He didnt fave to retire to get away from the Titans, he is a free agent.  and im sure he will be back, cause some team that is close to going to the playoffs will take a chance on him. but if he is truly done, then he was one of the most dynamic recievers to ever play the game, and im glad i got to see it
