    Its too early too say,The year is starting out good for him but don't just assume he is going to have monster numbers - Its a long season

    By week 10 if he continues to play like this,then yes he will sign probably a 2 year extension but I still am going to take his performance week by week until then.

    I'm just glad to have made it through this week. I can't handle anything else right now. I think he'll stay but it's low on my list of concerns right now.

    I will reiterate, Moss won't be going anywhere because Moss LIKES it here. He will get good $$$, but it'll be less than he could've gotten elsewhere. Definitely, with absolutely NO ROOM for doubt.

    if Randy Moss can play like this for at least two more years(and I think he can) Pay the man!!!Branch wanted big money ,he was half the threat Moss was..this guy stretches defences and makes the big play,,,,,he is worth some serious coin IMHO.

    Please bet me. I don't think you appreciate what a lost soul this guy has been and how much he actually LIKES the discipline and the leadership he's been given - and the respect he's been shown, ESPECIALLY by Brady. He will DEFINITELY be a Patriot next year. Book it.

    Randy Moss will be franchised next year, assuming he will not sign an extension. Go Pats:rocker:

    Hah. Good point noticing that the tag is available for him.

    Anyhow -- I think Moss will retire a Patriot. Seriously. Unless Brady's body wears out before his does, but that seems unlikely.

    What would he move on for?

    Could be the reason Pats willingly gave concessions to Asante. Given the choice, franchising Moss would be better, I think. But I really hope Randy Moss will sign an extension. Go Pats:rocker:

    This situation will be a great test of the Patriot Way. I can't wait to see how it turns out. It's only game two but I hope that Randy feels like he has a home here and that we can work something out going forward.

    I know there are rules about redoing a contract within a year. Does anyone know if we can extend him this year, and use some of the cap space?

    Re: Moss is great: Looking at next year though..

    If Moss retired today would he make the hall of fame?

    If Moss retired after playing 4 seasons with Brady, would he?

    This could be a factor for Moss resigning with the Pats. He might look for teams that are expected to win over the rest of his career & that have top QB's. There arent many of those teams around...

    Also we already know he's not concerned about making top dollar. If he continues on this tear, he's not going to play next year at the same pay as this year, but I think he'll be willing to compromise on a contract thats 'good enough'

    And the money we save from not signing Asante, can go straight to Moss (with Gay & Hobbs continueing to develop as players making it unnecessary to spend big bucks on another corner)

    If he stays here and stays healthy, he could go down as the second greatest receiver ever to play the game. That's a pretty good incentive for a guy that supposedly worries about his legacy.

    No, the reason the Pats willingly gave concessions to Asante is that Rodney was about to get busted for HGH.

    Re: Moss is great: Looking at next year though..

    Moss is going nowhere. The Pats will pay him good money and he will take a hometown discount to stay. He hasn't had a taste of winning like this in a long time and if this team does what I think it will do in the playoffs, he will be hooked. He has the team's respect including the respect of arguably the best QB in the game. Did you see them sitting together on the bench? This is not a TO/Bledsoe or TO/McNabb relationship. Yes....it is early....but I see a great relationship between these two.

    Moss won't give this up when coupled with a decent paycheck.

    Moss will play here as long as Brady's throwing the ball and he's get paid enough to show respect. I love watching him, not only is he making amazing plays, he's having such a good time. I don't think I've ever seen someone come in and start having so much fun !! These receiver corp could be around for awhile, I can even see them ALL willing to adjust their contracts. Their all having such a good time !!

    Granted, everything could change any given Sunday, but I doubt it !

    He will definitely stay. There is no reason to leave. He's said he's already made his money, so why go into a different and more volatile situation? He will stay here because it's stable and he can really put a stamp on his legacy.

    Just based on 2 weeks: next year he will get offered a cap friendly raise ($4-$5 mil a year) for 2+ years.

    If Moss wants to build on his HOF resume then he'll stay in NE.

    Re: Moss is great: Looking at next year though..

    Sooooooo, you're cautiously optimistic at this point :singing:

    Ummmmmm, we are two games in and the guy's got 17 catches for 288 (144 y/g, 16.8 ypc) and 3 TD. More then that, in 2 games Brady seems as comfortable throwing to him as he has been with any of his past receivers (excluding perhaps Brown and maybe Branch).

    It's still early of course, but I'll say this, if the last 2 weeks is any indication, and they stay together............ we could see things that may amaze us.

    We're are talking about teaming up one of the BEST QB's ever with arguably one of the most gifted WR ever. When did that last happen..... Oh yeah, Montana/Rice (they weren't too shabby were they :rolleyes: ).

    No need to franchise, if this continues, he'll be here for awhile and we will get the job done. In BB I trust.

    Sure, he'll be offered the deal we offered Washington or Stallworth. Get real, he's worth a lot more to the patriots, and supposedly we pay a player what he is worth to us.
