    Borges defends Moss

    The much-maligned Borges makes a strong case that the media is making a mistake and over reacting to Moss' comments - a 135-word, 53-second comment which CBS Sports trumpeted as an "exclusive interview" with Moss.

    Stop the Randy Moss hysteria - BostonHerald.com

    Ron Borges may indeed morph into Wrong Borges any time he writes anything to do with Bill Belichick, but this is actually a solid column in my opinion. If nothing else he gets a thums up for calling out Felger.
    Borges points out to all those that were concerned about his missing a practice that Moss seldom practiced on Wednesdays all last year, and that he and Logan Mankins are the only two players to have played offense in every game three years. Borges also goes on to compare Moss' production with that of other top receivers in the game during that time period and notes Reggie Wayne is the only other top receiver to appear in all 48 games - and he has 21 fewer touchdowns than Moss.


    Now I know there are some that would prefer - make that insist - on not clicking on a Ron Borges article. So if you prefer Ian Rapoport has a summary with some quotes from his blog, which is how I found Borges' column.

    Mostly because Randy's comments were "unflattering" toward the Patriots. Apparently, Borges still buys into the "taking plays off" bit, so I'm rather nonplussed.

    Then again, I love Borges. I just HAD to have some of his wisdom in my signature for all to see.

    Fred Taylor thinks that Moss is misunderstood by the media.

    Rapaport referred to himself only FOUR times in that piece. He's gradually becoming less narcissistic.

    Well, he is crediting himself with breaking the news that a colleague wrote a column. :rolleyes:

    So Borges is a moron when he writes a critical piece, but when he writes a positive one he makes valid points?

    Got it.

    Not sure why anyone thinks he's made any valid points here. He's still a moron.

    Borges latches on to any contract situation he can use to cause dissension and turmoil.

    I'll read it later, but the chance he has changed from the evil troll under the bridge, to actually helping someone seems remote to me.

    Since they just gave Brady a kajillion dollars, I'm thinking Borges "Randy's underpaid and disrespected by the cheap, criminal Kraft/Belichick regime" column will be out in a week and a half instead of a week.

    Rap's naivete is showing. That's what happens when you came here from covering Alabama... None of Ron's actual peers find this odd. Ron is stalking his next malcontent inside source...the only kind he's had in the Belichick era.

    Not sure which party is quoted, but I'd like to address the "Moss takes plays off" baloney.

    The guy plays about every minute of every game, most of the time running long routes. He runs more than anyone on the field, I'd wager.

    When he draws double coverage, plus a third leaner out of position, and the first option is elsewhere, he's done, as far as I'm concerned.

    There's a difference between play makers and game breakers, who bust there ass, and charlie hustles making loud, non useful plays to impress the camera and the writers. You can bet your ass every team in the league would love to have the Patriot's version of Moss and that's the only one I know or care about.

    Same thoughts as mine. Hope Moss doesn't fall prey.
