It could be his back it could be how the team is doing. But I don't think that he is falling back into his old Randy Moss being an a$% ways. I was late and got in trouble let move on and worry about finishing games

This is waht we are seeing too much this year. It seems he is jogging a lot and half hearted blocking. The reason why people hate on him so much is BECAUSE he is so GREAT. We don't hate on Welker because the guy goes 100% every time you see him. Welker has what 1/2 of Moss' natural talent. Welker has more quickness and you could argure hands but that is it. If Moss played the game with Welker's heart (or Troy Brown for that matter) waht could Moss do? Could he have taken the INt away form the Miami DB in the end zone last week? Maybe. Maybe not. It would just be nice to see him try.
What he said.
Harrison, Bruschi and Troy Brown would not be late and did all the little things that win Championships. Moss doesnt have the heart of a Champion.
And, Moss is susposed to be a Captain leading by example.
The only season he played poorly in was his last season in Oakland. He doesn't get a free pass, but the guy was playing for a coach who had been out of the league since the early 90s, with a offensive coordinator who was out of football for years running a bed and breakfast.
And with a QB who isn't good enough to be a backup in this league right now. I watched the Raiders games during his 2 years there and they were hard to watch. Saying that their kicker and punter are the only bright spots in that franchise is a huge understatement.
The same people dogging on Moss now are the same ones who believed the media articles during his Vikings days about how he sulked and didn't ever try. Meanwhile, he was on pace to pass Rice's records after his 7 years in Minnesota. Moss can score 23 TDs in a season and those people will still say, "Well if he actually tried he would have had 30!" There is no way to convince them. They are lost causes.
The media can portray any athlete the way they want, and people who don't have a mind of their own will eat it up. Moss never trusted the media, and the media made sure they made him pay for not sitting down with them every day and giving them great positive quotes for their articles each week.
My only problems with Moss are it seems like he doesn't FIGHT for the ball like he did when he first got here(was trying to PROVE he was still king is my guess), he would go up against 2 guys, battle hard, and come down with it alot of the times.....even if he DIDN'T come down with it, most times it was incomplete and not an INT.
And his blocking looks halfhearted these days.
This guy has unreal talent, and he used to show it consistently, it seems he is disinterested sometimes now........
I don't hate Randy, he's an awesome talent, and when he does EVERYTHING he CAN, he's untouchable.
I guess drafting BUMS like "I never play cuz I suck" Wheatley,"see the back of my Jersey as I get burned...AGAIN" Wilhiite, and "maybe my knee will let me play by my 4th year" Tate, wasn't good enough,we've got a guy that is giving Matt Millen a run for his $ by drafting a mediocre special teams player and giving him 1st Rd. cake.
Pass rush? Uneccessary when you have 72 CBS playing.
Lbs? What for, we have no pass rush, they gonna chuck it at our lousy CBS...all 72 of them bums
Perhaps the reason why Randy doesn't "go up for the ball" as often as we want and his lack of good blocking is because his back still is bothering him. Maybe he is just being careful not to re-aggravate his back.
I don't think any of us can say "oh, he doesn't care" or "He isn't trying". Despite any one's view on him he is still having a very strong season. Some people just can't be pleased.
This is the year. We put our failures in the past, it's a new year, a new defense. It's time to prove to the league that the Patriots are back and aren't going anywhere and they will be the last ones standing in Feb.
Update: Well that didn't work out as I had planned. Next year baby, next year 19-0 we go. Next year.
well, Randy has lost a step but don't blame Brady's end zone pick on him. Crappy decision and crappy pass by Brady, just like his last pick to end the game was.
My question is for those lucky enough to actually attend the games. Does Moss give up downfield on patterns sometimes when he's double covered? Sometimes its looks like he does on TV but that's only a rare shot since TV rarely captures that sort of thing.
When the team goes bad, people like to look for a scapegoat and Moss seems to be a convenient one. Never mind the fact that he has over 1000 yards receiving and 9 TDs. The guy has been a model citizen since he came here. Even with getting sent home the other day, he did not mouth off in the press. This guy is on the tail end of his career and still contributing. Let's cut him some slack.
This attitude of blaming Moss has followed him since day one. I'm sorry, but Randy has done his job. Yes, he's had a couple of drops, but Tom has made way more errors this season - do we trade him too? I first started visiting this board a couple of months before the 2007 season and I laughed out loud as many of you stated that Moss would be a zero factor to this team, that he's a problem in the locker room and that he'll never "get" the BB system. How was your serving of crow that year? Moss cannot take this team to the SB by himself, it's a team effort. If he could do it alone, he would have done it by now considering the crappy talent he had to endure prior to 07. Just chill. He's still the best receiver in the league. He still wants to win and I doubt he's going anywhere. If BB does let him go, you may want to start worrying about the coaching a little more than the WR positions, especially the way we've been out-coached time after time this season.
