    Moss got the biggest pre-game cheer from the fans. The media sucks goat balls and I hope the team uses their negativity to play even better. Hard to see that 4 guys were late. The way the media portrayed it was 2 guys were slacking and were late and 2 guys should have left earlier.

    I think it was just a bad day for 81. The events of this week played a part in it, I'm sure -- but I hope, and think, that this will get him fired up for the rest of the season.

    Good for Faulk!

    This offense is physically hurting. They need to publicly support each other publicly. If someone needs to take hits or make recriminations, that needs to come from Belichick pr Brady. The offense will be fine if and when they are more healthy.

    Mmmm, amazing that a great Patriot like Faulk would be a close friend with a POS like Moss.

    Looks like another long week for Randy. Glad that Kevin has his back.

    The media likes to make a mountain of a story out of an ant hill. Especially with the easier targets like Moss. Can't wait to hear Felger tomorrow....he's been on Moss' azz since he got to NE.

    One thing I do know, is that a seasoned vet in the lockerroom WOULD NOT come to the defense of Moss unless he deserved it.

    make moss inactive and see how welker gets triple teamed. making no excuses for moss but he has had bad last few weeks. Everyone says he is lazy and not playing well . Why would he do that? There is no reason to.He has always liked bb/pats the fans. He is just not playing well. there is another hall of fame receiver in the name of marvin harrison who frequently dissappeared when the colts were in the players. happens to the best of them. he ias been nothing but a good citizen and the local media is taking special pleasure in magnifying a tough set of outings and generalizing it .just my opinion.

    Too bad we can't just get rid of the dirty manipulative filtering middle-man that is the media, and let the players talk to the fans directly. I feel bad for Moss, and it was really disgusting to hear the boos from some of the fans today.

    But hell, what do his teammates know, let's just pretend he's a dog faker or whatever it was last week

    Given the way AdT was treated by the media over the tardiness, I'd say that this was a silly thing for Faulk to say, although his heart seemed to be in the right place.

    How do you feel bad for a guy who played like he played today? He did not look motivated to play at all, he didnt want to be on the field. The usual conversations with Brady inbetween possessions were not there. He did not run his routes hard and gave up on plays that he was not involved in, even Gamble said he could tell when the ball wasnt going to Moss by the way he got off the line of scrimmage. As a fan how can you cheer for a guy who gave an effort like he did today?

    No suprises here, expect to hear the same from Brady. If the team/BB wasn't behind him, he wouldn't have been starting

    I didn't try to insinuate anything. You made a comment and I responded to it. The reality is that it was Thomas, not Moss, who took the brunt of the criticism this past week over being tardy, and that was both before AND after he had his interview. Burgess did an interview as well, but Moss declined. That's just the way it is, without any need for insinuation.

    Because he's been unrightfully dogged on by the media virtually his entire career.

    He never LOOKS motivated, he never LOOKS like he's running full speed. I don't care if you study psychology for your entire life, what he LOOKS like to you on the TV feed means absolute jack **** to the reality of the situation.

    Well I'm glad you are a mind reader and know exactly what Moss wants. Thanks for calling Faulk a liar too because Kevin is trying to tell you that Moss LOVES football and has NEVER dogged it.

    Except twice on the TV feed we saw Brady say what seemed like comforting words to him and give him a pat. Also there was a shot of them sitting side by side talking. But yeah, let's judge the TV feed and determine what level of motivation Moss had.

    Glad you watched the coach's tape of every play and glad you paid so much attention to Moss' every move. Oh wait did you watch the TV feed?

    Yea Gamble's word is worth more than Kevin Faulk's, good one. It's a damn shame that Gamble and the Panthers couldn't do a damn thing with the rest of our offense even when they KNEW Moss wasn't a threat. I'll bet that If Moss didn't play at all, our offense would have struggled a little bit more.

    Because I don't fall into the trap of the media and their power to create personas for guys that do NOT make a habbit of talking to them. This is the same media that wants you to think that BB is an ego-driven self-righteous pompous a-hole that cares about no one but himself. I also think it's only natural that players will have bad days from time to time.

    He isnt going to talk bad about a teammate, that would just cause problems in the locker room and be very unprofessional. Faulk is one of the most professional players in the game and will always have his teammates back no matter what and never say anything negative about someone

    I didn't hear the media say negative things about AdT. The media spun it as a negative of BB when it came to AdT. Things written about Moss are usually about him packing it in, or dogging it, or quitting on his team etc...

    You trully are ignorant, and I guess it really is true; ignorance is bliss. Find me one teammate of Moss, now or in the past that has said a negative thing about him. AdT's past teammate had a negative thing to say about him, but every teammate of Moss has always had glowing things to say about him.

    Faulk basically told you how it is, and you refuse to believe it. So Faulk is lying because it doesn't follow what YOU want to believe. Classic, it's become the norm around here unfortunately

    Ok, so you didn't listen to, or read, any media this week, then and are just tossing this out as a question, right?

    Because the media was all over Thomas for this stuff, as thread after thread on this site illustrated.

    Yea I leave myself little exposure to the local mediots these days, and don't give their worthless sites any hits. It seemed from quotes I read around here and some other stuff I've caught that the media was playing it as BB overreacting and losing his team, bad decision etc...

    Faulk wouldn't have said anything then.....or made a general "team" comment. What he said was very telling. Faulk would not have been so specific if he did not beleive it.

    Was he dogged on by the media in '07? He is not being dogged on by the media, they report and write what they see. They are not homer's like yourself standing up for your favorite player.

    Does the Randy Moss that you have been watching on the field the past few weeks look motivated to you? You dont have to study pyschology to see this. On Bradys INT did he make that hard cut to the sideline like he usually does? Last week did he make any effort to try and prevent the defender from intercepting the ball in the end zone? It seems like lately Moss has shyed away from contact, hense the reason for the fumble and the drop today.

    Brady even mentioned in his press conference that he was trying to cheer Moss up and keep him motivated. He sees that he is down and frustrated and he is trying cheer him up. The old Moss would be next to Welker and Brady on the bench talking and pumping eachother up for the next drive.

    I think Gamble's word is worth more than Faulk's he was the one covering him the whole game. He can tell whether Moss gave his full effort or not. He can tell just how hard Moss made his cuts and got off the ball. I will say that Moss' presence does make the team better especially Wes Welker. He takes 2 or 3 defenders out of the picture and leave guys like Welker to get the one on one coverage.

    Bad day from time to time is one thing. Hes had 11 receptions in his last 4 games. That isnt exactly Moss like numbers. You have to be blind to not see that Moss is frustrated and not giving his best effort out there.
