    Do you guys think we need more receivers that are more suited to playing in NE? I don't think Moss is that kind of guy. He's more suited to play in a dome or out on the West coast. You just have to be a different kind of receiver to play in NE. It's much harder obviously to catch the ball when it's cold outside and guys like Branch and Brown were perfect for that.

    I recall Randy having some good games in Lambeau when he was with the Vikes. Here? My impression is that his performances have been uneven.

    This is the same guy that scored 23 TDs outside in cold weather. I'm not sure where you're going with this.

    To be fair, a lot of those touchdowns were scored before the dead of winter came around. But yes, I do agree that Moss is just fine as a cold weather receiver.

    In going back and looking at all the games after Thanksgiving and not in domes, hes had some great games, ok games and not-so-great games. IOW, hes been like every other WR ever.

    He may not like the cold, but I dont think he turtles under b/c of it.
