    I just wanted to get that out there. Regardless of his production on the field he grew as a leader in his time here. Putting aside the trite reasons why he's gone ... I don't think it was trite myself.

    Lots of camera shots showing Randy coaching on the sidelines.

    got to hand it to him ... even Bill said he has brilliant football intelligence.

    So ... a different twist now ... Moss to be a WR coach soon paving the way to be an OC?

    Why not I say ... He's probably better than most all WR coaches now.

    He's probably on par or smarter than a few OC coaches now.

    Wouldn't it be hilarious if as a condition for letting him go Randy agreed to return as a WR coach after he retires?

    Sounds insane ... but think about it before you answer. ... it's not so crazy if you consider he may most desire a legacy in lieu of a Super Bowl player ring. Maybe he could get that ring as a coach ???????

    I'm skeptical of superstars returning as coaches, because to break in you have to put in pretty crazy hours for no money and zero recognition to get to the point of being a viable candidate for the higher-profile positions. Guys like Singletary are rare, and that's part of why I was skeptical when people were talking about Bruschi and Harrison possibly transitioning into coaching. Along the same vein, I'd be very surprised if Moss pursues that path. I don't doubt that he has the intelligence and work ethic to do it if he wants to, but I just don't think he'd choose to go that route.

    No. Players who earn the kind of money these guys get these days seldom have any interest in coaching when their playing days are done. Longer hours, less vacation time, 90% salary reduction, accountability and expectations tied to someone elses performance... And I'm not sure I'd want Randy teaching my WR to play the game his way, thanks. Few are talented enough to stick without a lot more willingness to master the little things and do whatever it takes and put the team first. Coaching is about a lot more than x's and o's these days, too.

    Great comments, and I agree.

    You work your ass off as a coach, for relatively little money, and even when you win, some nobodies on a message board are criticizing you. :cool:

    he looks like he really enjoys it .... when the camera pans to him it looks like he has as much adrenaline flowing on the sidelines than he does on the field.

    Oh well ... just a thought ... I am impressed when I see him doing it.
    He's lecturing and he has everyone's 110% attention ... that's a coach.

    You're joking. I like randy, but he's way too emotional. besides, the most talented players make the worst coaches, usually. What he has can't be coached.

    I get what you're saying about Randy being on the sidelines, but I think the appeal behind the "coaching" he does now would fade without him having the ability to go out there and do it himself. I think his interest in the Xs and Os complements his career on the field, but it wouldn't stand alone in a coaching position.

    I don't think Randy is interested in coaching. Outside of football and his kids, Randy's great love is for bass fishing. That is what he is going to do when he retires. And he has the money to do just that.

    I believe he's a pretty good businessman, but i couldn't confirm. He's got a lot of money, so it's hard to tell.

    Those who can, do - those who can't teach...

    Randy can - and as much of a student of the game he is, I question whether he can teach.

    As far as carving a coaching path, I think Belichick fostered a trade that ultimately is going to contribute to Childress getting fired...

    The front office gave Childress the team he wanted - paid more for Favre and then went out and traded for Moss. This is Childress' team, and if he can't win with this bunch its questionable whether he'll ever win the Big One.

    If this season ends badly for the Vikings - and I think it may - it wouldn't surprise me to see both Childress and Favre be shown the door.

    I think Belichick would get a kick out of that... Childress is always trying to one up Belichick and always seems to fall flat.

    Randy Moss is paving a way back to the Patriots.

    Belichick knew Moss wouldn't accept a deep discount next year like he did with the first time around with the Pats, so BB decided to give Moss some Humble Pie by shipping him off to the Vikings. Moss will realize how much it sucks not being a Patriot, especially when the Pats win the Superbowl this year and the Vikings are 6-10. Moss will beg BB to come back, at which point he will sign a 4 year 8 million offer, thereby keeping the Pats offense elite for the remainder of Brady's contract - with Moss's steady decline due to old age being compensated by Tate's improvement on the other side of the field.

    :rofl: We really have to find some of you some hobbies. WAAAAAAAAAAY too much time on your hands.

    My favorite line " Lots of camera shots showing Randy coaching on the sidelines." Really??? Pouting is not leading. Hey let's ask Wes Welker.... ;)

    The Moss haters hate on Moss NO MATTER WHAT he does!

    Randy has only been on the Vikings for a few weeks and he's already holding these sessions on the sidelines teaching the receiving group how to be better.

    He's matured, just like Cris Carter did in his career to become a mentor to Moss.

    Some people just refuse to think of Moss as anything other than the person he was 10 years ago.
