    Bill Simmons just tweeted there's rumors of Randy Moss being traded to the Vikings, anyone heard anything about it/any truth in it? what would everyone want in return for him if it is true?

    If this happens, Belichick should be submitted to undergo electroshock therapy. I don't see any way possible that this rumor is true.

    Sounds like nonsense. Why would Bill Simmons of all people be the one to break this news?

    Well we certainly wouldn't get a wr out of the deal,if it's true it's a first round pick or a top player like Allen

    Randy would take a bat to the Patriots management ... going from getting balls from brady and then from mr AARP himself ... Randy wouldn't let it happen if he had a say in it.

    I don't tweet so I don't know what a direct message is, whatever, but SD wanted a #2 and #3 for Vincent Jackson, I'd love to trade our 2 & 3 for him, assuming he signed long term, then recoup the #2 from Minnesota for Moss. The long term "Randy Replacement" issue would be solved and we'd still have the two #1s to use on defense.

    It's pretty hard to not realize your not sending a DM compared to a public tweet, sounds like Simmons is doing this for publicity...it's working...:bricks:

    I'd be the saddest of the pandas

    I do like the Vikings so all hope wouldn't be lost I guess. I'd take Jared Allen or AP in this trade though

    It's not that crazy a rumor, at least from the Minnesota side. Wasn't there a article (by Andrew Brandt, possibly) recently regarding how badly Farve wanted Moss to come to Green Bay? They tried to placate him with plans for Greg Jennings' development, but he wanted Moss.

    We know that Farve has Childress by the short-and-curlies, and with each year ticking away it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Farve is making waves in Minnesota over getting Moss with Moss' contract coming up this year.

    As for the Patriots -- if you're not going to resign Moss, you have to at least consider trading Moss. I think it would be a lot crazy to trade him this early in the season, but Belichick traded Seymour, so anything is possible.

    Hmmmm, coincidence that Moss wasn't really involved in the game too much last night? :confused:

    EDIT-Damnit, we can't enjoy this victory for one day without something happening...

    Screw Bill Simmons for this crap. It's almost like he wants to see them implode.

    If this is the end for Moss here, then he was one of those rare sportsmen that it was a privilege to watch him play. Just an amazing talent.

    Assuming this isn't b.s., what have we won with Moss anyway? He's also been a no show in the playoffs. It might cost people some fantasy points, but the malcontent would be gone.

    Not sure what the logic behind this would be - if Welker was 100% and Tate had developed to be a genuine #2 then it would make more sense. But neither condition is that close and furthermore the Vikings don't have a decent WR to trade (at least one without potential medical problems).

    The only thing to add fuel to the fire is that the bye is the best time for a trade. I wonder if the M in the deal is Mankins?
