    Man, it's crazy how ESPN is trying to constantly compare these two, both are great players. Don't compare them and act like they hate each other. Sal pao antonio was saying "TO gave his best randy moss impersonation today, scoring two clutch tds that sealed the game. Just like brady looked for moss in the clutch, romo looked for owens and he delivered." It's funny because sal pao antonio, during TO's press conference, tried to bait him into saying something bad about Moss and the pats.

    Sal pao: TO, did you watch last week what moss and brady did in the 4th quarter and say, "Hey, don't forget about us."

    TO: No. I'm not focused on anybody else but the guys in this locker room and the opponent that we play that week.

    :D Sal pao was looking like an idiot Here's something on ESPN.com about TO being obsessed with Moss. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=3105823 I disagree, TO is focused on his team and Moss is focused on his team.

    I think there's a little truth to TO's obesession with "the other 81", but the media has definetely been trying to pull stuff out of him regarding Moss. That's always been the story with TO though, he makes himself a target for the media, and he'll remain a target until he stops giving them their material. He should just do what Moss does and ignore them altogether.

    Well you're entitled to your opinion but I don't think he's obsessed. And he did ignore the media.

    TO did look good yesterday. Good for him and Dallas. It will be even better when we beat them (TO for the second time) in the Super Bowl.

    T.O. is a great WR, so is Moss. I see nothing wrong with any comparison by the mediaheads. That being said, I doubt there is one Pat fan that would trade Moss for TO or one GM or coach that would take TO over Moss.

    This is what the media does, how they pass their time.

    Just trying to add more fuel to the fire that may eventually set up as a Superbowl rematch. And of course, anytime they mention the names TO and Moss in the same article it'll be an instant 'hit'.

    While ESPN has been guilty of crazy hype this year, I don't put these two in this category.

    With their wins over the last two weeks, the Patriots and the Cowboys have emerged as their league's best teams, and their star wide receivers are emerging as the best wide receivers in the business. They are very similar in their game changing abilities and have been similarly controversial at times. This is a totally legitimate story and discussion.
