    A somewhat lengthy article about Moss, from his high school days to present, by Erik Scalavino on patriots.com:

    There's a lot of information on his days before becoming a Patriot, and finishes up with the charitable work he does outside of the public eye. There's no sit-down interview with Moss, but Kevin Faulk, Ray Ventrone, Chris Hanson and Jonathan Wilhite talk about Randy.

    Scalavino was a nice replacement for AliceLovesBrady.

    They didn't need to interview Moss, it's a much better article without him. Interviews with the coaches who went out on big limbs and who put their reputations on the line to help him speak more about him than Moss could.

    Great read, have a whole new respect for him after that. Looked like a problem kid but I find it hard to believe that others wouldn't have done what he did in high school to protect a loved one nor done something stupid to cost them dearly only to learn a valuable lesson from it.

    And about his charitable work- Holtz and coach Pruit put it best. Moss puts the work first and foremost even if it means he does it anonymously...considering their past actions painting him badly not wanting that bad influence there makes sense.

    That's not saying much, but I agree.

    True, a fresh turd would have been an improvement, but I do appreciate Erik's effort to be informative (I don't listen to any of the online "broadcast" stuff they do so I can't speak to that part of the process, but the written word has gotten much better).
