    I love moss and i loved the combination of brady, moss, and welker, but the looking at the trade now seems kinda unneeded.

    Welker was the perfect replacement for branch, but i think without moss the pats would have a similar offense they do now. It would be more diverse without moss, who's only great when he wants to and is always double covered.

    I guess you can't look back lol

    Because our receiving corps sucked in 2006 and Randy Moss was awesome. :bricks:

    Off to the Practice Squad with this bad boy.

    Moss was wonderful for the 07 season and he truly helped Matt Cassel in gaining enough confidence to be the successful QB he is now in KC and was in 2008

    2009 was the end of the Moss era for all intensive purposes,I truly think Moss aged before our eyes last season.

    I won't forget his accomplishments those years but its obvious Father Time is knocking VERY loudly on his door.

    What do you mean why did we even acquire him?

    This thread is awful ... Moss more than proved his worth here.

    We'll never know what Brady and Moss might have done if Brady was not lost for the season.

    Time to move on ... thankfully we have a coach who usually gets that right.

    Well, that 2nd qtr display in Miami back on Oct 21, 2007 was awesome to watch from the upper deck of Doplhin Stadium. He just needed to make one play at the end of that G-- ---m game in Glendale. One F------ play!

    This Offense is the best in the NFL, but no, not even close. We traded Moss just at the right time. I said when we acquired him it was the right move, and I agreed when we traded him it was the right move (as I figured the only way we would trade him was he was a major problem, he was). The 07 offense was the best in the history of the league.

    mY POINT IS WHEN THEY TRADED FOR MOSS, the whole teams gameplan and philosophy change from a balance team to a deep ball offense

    Because they could, because of the Polian "emphasis" which made pass defense more difficult and because we had lost Branch and Givens.

    It wasn't Moss's fault we lost the SB, it was an over reliance on him and Welker and refusal to use, or lack of a reliable running game.

    Given the historic season of 2007 and the fact that the Patriots laid an egg in the biggest game of their history this is a ridiculous thread. Nobody can argue against the production of Randy Moss at the Patriots.

    How quickly people forget.
