    Last week I shrugged off concerns about Moss as hot air: it seemed he did his job superbly, running decoy routes without complaint, leaving the rest of our Air Force open to get the job done.

    Was it the same plan this week?

    The reason I ask, I was looking at a writer in September talking about Moss, describing his pattern in Minnesotta: great player, something off the field happens that is a distraction, his play gets worse, and then his attitude spirals down. I am really worried this is happening right now with the extortion attempt by Rachelle "show me the money" Washington.

    So, I didn't really see Moss's coverage: was he running decoy routes, getting double and triple covered?

    Cheers, and here's to a great SB performance by Moss.

    PS I didn't like how the announcers just quickly covered the Moss situation saying he was accused of abusing a woman. Nothing from his side of the story. Pissed me off.

    I'm sure Randy is grateful for fans like you neuronet. I agree with your concerns and just hope Randy doesn't start feeling sorry for himself. I believe he has more people he can lean on for support than he's ever had before. Let's hope he allows them to help him.

    He threw some good blocks out there and looked good on that reverse.

    Yes, that reverse was just sweet. I didn't know he had it in him!

    Well, in two weeks the weather will be perfect (dome), they will be well-rested, and I don't think we could be facing a better secondary than we did today. Here's to another 3 TD day from Moss.

    PS that new sig pic is just hilarious. LT on the sideline looking like Darth Vader was priceless.

    Hmmm. Perhaps it is best to let this go for a while and let it run its course. BB knows what to do. The fact that they played each other so recently is likely to be an advantage to the team with the best coaching staff.... :)

    I really hope the Pats pull it off so Ditka can SUCK IT.

    Doesn't matter!! The other team MUST account for Moss on the field which frees up other guys in the passing game.

    We don't have them every week. The previous week has been different for obvious reasons.

    So the answer is yes, he was double teamed, ran good decoys, and no reason to worry. I don't know if I buy it. He has been getting double and triple covered all season. I hope you guys are right.

    I have enjoyed the win. Time to move on to the Giants and all that BB jazz.

    Moss is a super decoy. He opens up the field for not only the other WR but also for Maroney and Faulk. I'm not worried about him...or think that his legal troubles are getting to him (at least not on the field).

    Moss did some good things, but obviously the Chargers were doing a great job on our recievers, and that's why the game was won by Faulk and Maroney. It's the extra coverag on Moss, Welker, and Stallworth that made Faulk and Maroney were so successful. The Chargers secondary lived up to its reputation, so the Pats wisely chose to grind out their victory.

    it seems like everyone on NE is up for that decoy role

    moss was a decoy on the welker td, welker was a decoy on the gaffney td

    pats know how to use their weapons better than anyone i've seen this season obviously since they're 18-0

    plus that 4th qtr, man, what a knockout punch that was, that was epic.
