    I figured that there weren't enough threads about Randy Moss going. :D Ain't no way it would ever happen, but boy would the Colts' receiver core be scary. Harrison, Wayne, and Moss...who would you cover?

    Do you know how many guys Indy would have to cut to make that deal happen? I agree it would make them scary, but they'd still find a way to lose in the playoffs...

    Actually I think the Colts were several million under the cap before the Simon thing, then you take away his cap hit and they probably wouldn't be too far off. Still there is NO way that it would happen, but I figured the thread name alone would make a couple hearts skip a beat.

    Yeah, the confluence of trading deadline and bye week is a killer. We haven't seen this many threads about one player since that tempest in a teapot when some crazy people actually thought the Pats might trade Deion Branch. Hey, wait a second...;)

    You know you joke, but I could see it happening at some point. He still talks about how good of a baller he was and playing with White Chocolate.

    I think I just hear that the Seahawks are trading Branch straight up for Moss now. That what "league insiders" might be saying or something close to that or not.

    Teams wouldn't have to cover anyone...the Colts D would be too busy trying to stop the run.

    Ha! Exactly right. Shaking in my boots at the mere sight of this thread? Please. I rolled my eyes. As though adding another offensive weapon when their defense sucks should be scary to anyone.

    Last I checked Moss wasn't much help stopping the run.

    Actually last night, I was thinking about how scary the Bears would be if they had Peyton Manning.

    You know what would be really funny? Pretty soon on the PFT rumormill, they will mention that several Patriots' insiders and at least one Colts' insider have been discussing that the Colts are in the running for Moss before the trade deadline.

    Brilliant! Let's fan the flames and make it a three-way deal:

    - Matt Cassel to Raiders
    - Randy Moss to Colts
    - Adam Vinatieri to Patriots

    Not to stray too far away from the trade talk that this thread is based on, the Colts have been using their offense to stop the run for several years. If you jump out to a two or three TD lead, you take away a lot of running games.

    Except when you run into a good team in the playoffs. We all know what happens then.

    Looks like parts are starting to leak into the mainstream media. NBCSports.com say Moss not heading to the Pats, they just didn't mention that talks are still on going and Moss will end up in Indy.

    I just wasted 5 minutes reading a thread that is completely unfounded in any truth or rumor. My bad for not stoppping after the opening post.

    Actually it is totally founded in rumor. But like every other trade thread about Moss there is no truth to back it up....yet. ;)

    moss to colts would be the worst move ever....

    you already have an elite wr in harrison, along with an amazing receiver in wayne.....not to mention brandon stokley is a very very good 3rd receiver...that'd just be a waste to trade for moss....colts are better off trading a running back b/c colts running game is terrible...adding moss would be the worst move, if i was the gm, i'd fire dungy for even considering a trade for moss
