    :rofl:

    Only if Belioli consumed a few, ahem, special batches of brownies sent to them by Ricky Williams. And could you imagine Moss on the same practice field as Rodney Harrison? [Rodney is not amused by whiny receivers. :D ]

    Call me crazy, but I love Randy Moss. I see him kind of like Corey Dillon of a few years ago, so tired of losing he will gladly keep himself in check and work hard just to have a chance to win. I hate to think of him languishing away in Oakland, he will never have a chance to do anything special with that team. Okay so it'll never happen here, but it's nice to dream.

    Let's just hope he doesn't go to Miami, or else we'll need to have 100 moderators to control the Dolphin infestation.

    I'm not the least bit excited about having Moss, Chambers, McMichael and Brown on the Dolphins offense together :(

    Why did I know this was coming? But, even I didn't think it would be the very next post.

    Try walking up to your boss or going on the radio and saying you'd rather be working someplace else. Tell me how that goes over.

    thats what he wanted before. its not like he said.."you know, if i was a Raven or a Falcon right now..i would be a lot happier" He said that Oakland wasnt his plan before. thats what he thought..if he does..let it be. hes Randy Moss..hes also had some issues so you deal with it by not doing anything agianst him

    Alright Randy Moss may whine but how many times did you hear it last year? Not many. And wouldn't you want to leave Oakland too? Who the hell wants to live there? If Randy Moss was somehow on the trading block, the Pats would have to be fools to at least not inquire about him. If Moss played with guys like Brady, Favre, Manning and didn't get a long with them, Moss would loose credibility as a wide reciever in the NFL. My point is, if Moss were traded to the Pats, he would shut up because he would be in the endzone all the time and his team would be winning. That is all Moss wants to do is win, you can't hate him for that. Think of him as Corey Dillon when he was in Cincy.

    Although I never believe what Belichick says to 'butter up' an opponent, he was a lot more defensive of Moss than what you might expect in the 2 recent times they played each other (2002/2005). He said that a lot of the media hype can be blown out of proportion.

    I think Bioli would look objectively into the situation before declaring Moss a problem child and 'off limits', as Archives mentions.

    In the very remote chance that Bioli wants to trade for Moss, I would not mind at all. A lot of these veterans that Bioli brings in help us win a superbowl, and then they are gone back into free agency again (Washington), or decline the following season (Dillon). But we get another ring in the meantime!

    TO is like a tougher version of Moss. While Moss is faster and more athletically gifted than TO, TO is more willing to block and showed incredible toughness in the Super Bowl, coming back from a bad injury then having a great game. I don't like Moss simply because he'll check himself out of the game if he's getting bashed, and that's not a Patriot player at all. They're both jerks but at least TO is the lesser of two evils. Even when Moss is happy he has problems.

    I think Brady and Moss could flat out slaughter the rest of the league if they played together, even for just a year before Moss was benched/traded/released/suspended/runs over a female cop.

    No, I don't think it will ever happen.

    Give Brady any true, top10 caliber WR (sorry Deion, to me your 15-20th) and that would flat out rule!

    Can Chad Jackson be a top 10?

    I am not sure Moss could or would ever drink the kool -aid, seems way too self absorbed to understand t-e-a-m. But, better here than in Miami - addition by subtraction if it came to that.

    Yeah, except that:

    1. the Vikings were'y losers like the Bengals were. The last Vikings losing season was 2002.

    2. Dillon didn't take plays off (did you watch the end of the Vikes-Pats game where Moss didn't even step off the line because the play wasn't giong to him? Let the pats D shift and Culpepper's pass was incomplete.

    3. Dillon didn't do drugs, run his car into traffic officers, and demand a Corey Ratio.

    Moss isn't much like Dillon. If I had to compare him, it would be to Keyshawn.

    Yeah Moss had admitted to "taking plays off" and that just won't fly with the lunchpail attitude the Pats carry. Forget about BB, Brady will run that guy out of town on a rail within the first week of TC. Brady demands and expects a lot out of teammates and he has earned the respect to do so.

    Moss and T.O. are both headcase wideouts, end of story. It's wishing rather than planning, to think that "oh it turned out he wasn't a malcontent after all," along the Dillon lines. They've both been undisciplined me-first guys, slightly more talented versions of Terry Glenn. You know what? Ultratalented wideouts are fine when you're playing from behind. Give me a balanced attack and a competent defense any day. I don't want to win by 30 and have to see their jackass antics every day until the next game, and I don't want to lose by 10 the next week and hear how "if they threw me the ball more..." or for that matter, "If Brett Favre was our QB..."
