    My apologies if this has already been posted. I did a quick scan of the front page and didn't see it. Anyway, Brady was on WEEI earlier and weighed in on the Moss situation.

    Saw a video on the patriots iPhone app of Moss showing some leadership effort in the lockerroom. It was just a little thing to amp them up and celebrate by clapping on rhythm, but it was something nevertheless. Can't post the link right now, I'm on my phone. Sorry.

    Using PatJews famous phrase, sign the beast.

    Tom Brady said the same thing about Deion Branch, and we all know what happened with the front office long term interest and strategy.
    Resigning or releasing him next year , will depend on how our young offense progress,future draft picks, trades ,etc etc etc etc

    Kraft will always look for the Best Bang for the Buck , that's why he is a billionaire. :)

    The 2 situations are massively different and how dare you put Branch's name anywhere close to the same sentence as Moss.

    Branch was named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XXXIX on February 6, 2005 , is this enough?

    What I find sad about this is that Moss likely would get resigned if he just does his job. Up until now, Brady, Kraft, and BB loved him.

    Moss is insecure and acting out looking for attention, but he won't get that kind of attention out of BB. He just needs to keep his head down and play.

    uhh no. MVP of a single game (in which Brady was the real MVP) does not put him in the same stratosphere as Moss. Are you being serious?

    PS: Branch refused to honor his contract.

    Why should we take Brady's word for it compared to, say, Michael Felger?

    Because Felger knows a lot more about football and the Pats than Brady. It is easy to play on the field but very tough to observe and pass scathing comments. :eek:

    Feel sad that I wrote the above - really - because Felger supported the Pats and Brady so vehemently in 2001 against the BG writers.

    Are you saying Moss has decided not to play this season and hold the team hostage? If not, the poster is correct, there is no comparison!

    Exactly. If this was deion branch, he'd be holding out right now. Moss is just catching footballs.

    IMO Moss' frustration was mostly directed at the media--esp. the local media. They jump on him every chance they get. Yet we haven't even heard a word about TO and Chad leaving the 2nd quarter early yesterday.

    No. Not at all. I hate how people grade player's careers based on a Superbowl victory or MVP award. Aside from that game, what else has Branch really done in his career? He was/is a solid player and nothing more. He showed up and brought his A game to the Superbowl (1 game) and deserved the MVP award, but to put him in the same sentence as Moss because Moss doesnt have an MVP or ring is RETARDED.

    This goes hand in hand with how people grade the talent of a QB on rings. STUPID.

    ``Deion is the most important player on our offense," Brady told SI.com. ``When I look at the elite receivers he is second to nobody."
    Brady said Warfield told him, ``Deion was the best I faced. He was spectacular."

    Are we talking about the same player?

    Do you have a point to make? Because it seems to me that you tried to compare Branch with Moss. Moss is a lock for the HOF and was a huge reason for the 2 highest scoring offenses in NFL history.

    So what is your point exactly?

    Also Randy Moss has the most sucessful rookie season in NFL history, most td by a rookie, most td in a single season and 2nd most tds in the history of the NFL.

    Now, do you really want to compare Branch to Moss?

    That this is what Tommy would say publicly about his #1WR no matter what he did or how he complicated Brady's already sufficiently complicated life off the field?? Brady loved Branch, raised him from a pup while he himself was still a pup. Won 2 rings together. He was as frustrated with the player as the FO (and maybe moreso) by the time it ended the way it ended...

    How can you tell me how frustrated Brady was with Branch?

    Anyway this still has nothing to do with what the Patriots will do with Moss. Branch refused to honor his contract and was traded. There is 0 parallel with Moss playing in the last season of his current contract.

    Always been curious just how much power Belichick has on player signings. Maybe he drops the lever mid-season . . .

    Personally, I love Moss. Everything the guy says is reported as "Moss vented" or "Moss meltdown" or "Rolling Moss was clearly stoned at press conference." He wasn't pissed off at the conference. Just too candid for his own good. But I respect him. Plays hard, played injured last year, plays each season 90% of snaps (often running down field 40 yards at a full sprint) and has caught more TDs in last 3 years than any WR in the league.

    Plus how can you beat a quote like "I stayed off Revis Island" . . .

    Tom Brady protects his teammates because he's that type of guy. Ultimately, he's not the one making personnel decisions, that's Belichick, and I'm sure Bill knows the difference between what Branch brings to the table compared to Moss.

    Regarding Moss's age, Bill always mentions that it's not about a players age, it's about the players performance. If Moss performs this year (which he will), we'll offer him a contract. The only question is will the dollars we offer meets his demands.

    It's crazy that some Pats fans are willing to easily get rid of this guy.

    I don't disagree he played well in the clutch. He intentionally screwed the team and possibly cost them a winnable Super Bowl.

    It's like debating how good an office employee was after they burned down the building.

    For what it's worth, he's no Randy Moss either, he's a decent undersized quick receiver who had a couple good years. A trivia question for the future.

    Plus, Deion was the only dependable WR Brady had until that time and so his comments back then were understandable.

    I will not be surprised if Brady has him as # 3 if asked to rank his best WRs as of today.
