    We do too, Randy. We do too. Especially those of us who sprung for your jersey.

    Randy woulda made a better WR3/4 than branch if he played the way he is for SF

    No doubt, I'm sure everyone wishes it could have ended better. But BB did what he had to do. I do think it was a mistake to not bring him back on the cheap for the last 2 seasons though. I believe he's learned his lesson and so far he's been good with SF in that regard. At the very least, he'd have been an easy upgrade over Ocho last year and over Branch this year.

    I'll always remember that last game, MNF against the 'Fins, when Randy had zero catches and I think 1 target. You had the team rallying and Brady talking to his new guys on the sideline, very pumped up, and then that big second half. And at the end of the game, Moss just by himself looking out on the field, \ his eyes red and maybe tearing up a bit, and that look -- you just knew that he knew that he fudged up. Sad.

    True that. Another memorable bit was his post game presser just a few weeks later when visiting with Minny. Professing all that Pats love....and distain for Brad Childress and co.

    Every year I say Moss is coming back, so far, I've been wrong ha ha

    but really, its just because I hold on to fond memories of the 2007 season. I know even if Moss comes back, he will, unless he destroys a lot of odds will not be close to his 2007 self. But man, that was good times.

    Would have been awesome to see the headline:

    "Pats trade Randy Moss to Vikings for 3rd round pick and Randy Moss"

    Regards,

    I hope he wins and forgets about regrets. I would be very happy to see that.

    Unfortunately Randy has nobody to blame but himself for the way things ended in New England. He should have known that was the only way it could end given his behavior. Such a shame.

    I bet everyone regrets how things ended. But that's life, and it happens. Hopefully Moss gets his ring on Sunday.

    Pulling for Randy to win one with the Niners. He would have been a hell of a lot better option than Deion or Stallworth. We should have signed him over Shiancoe too.

    I think the famous line is, "everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end."

    Moss was a victim of his self inflicted "me first" mentality. As great as he was a WR can you imagine if he were as humble and team first oriented as a Jerod Mayo?

    Trading moss for practically nothing, was one of the foolish moves the patriots have ever done.

    Could you imagine Gronk, moss, hernandez, and welker on the field at the same time? The patriots should have let him play his contract out.

    LOL.

    Yeah, I'm over Moss. He was great when he was here but unfortunately he shot his way out of town. Losing Moss turned into a positive however as this team had to learn how to play without being focused on just two offensive players - Moss+Welker.

    I wish him the best in the Superbowl. Thanks for your great seasons here as a Patriot Randy

    I got a feeling that the media is going to obsess on if Moss is coming back to our Pats in the off season. Ugh...

    Where do you get these riduculous ideas?

    Moss had checked out mentally. He was being paid 9 mil in the third year of his 3 year contract. Have you forgotten his 16 minute post game "ME" rant after the 2010 week one win? He had 9 catches after 4 games. You think Bill should have kept him around to play that out? Really?

    "He had 9 catches after 4 games." Moss was being phased out of the offense :rolleyes:


    Did you miss the fact moss (who clearly still had enough in the tank) wanted to retire a patriot, but the patriots only wanted him for one more tear? And was pissed off after week 4 when he realized the patriots were clearly trying to move on and were not targeting him. If the patriots wanted to use him moss would have been playing for a new contract.
    This was clearly on the patriots.

    Moss had 3 touchdowns with the limited opportunities he was given :rolleyes:
