yes. In the right suitiation Randy Moss can be very good.
In his first year with Norv Turner, he had over 1000 yards but things changed when they fired Norv and hired Art Shell and Tom Walsh to run the offense. I think if Randy Moss can give Lane Kiffin a chance, it will work out for both sides. Plus if they draft Jamarcus Russell then they have a big arm that can get Moss down the field like when he was with Daunte Culpepper in Minnesota.
I'd take him for almost any team, but as a Arizona Cardinals fan it would be a flat out NO, just because we have absolutely no need.

#1--Russell I can't be too disappointed in this pick because he is, realistically, a huge upgrade (in the same way that the Great Wall of China would be a huge upgrade over the fence in my backyard) over Andrew Walter.
If I cheered for a team that had a QB that could throw the ball more than 20 yards, then most definitely.
Moss isn't nearly as bad as all of you are making him out to be. You have no evidence he is past his prime... the last two years he played for a team that had horrible QB's and coaches that didn't call his number a) enough, b) in the right plays.
He may not be his 1600 yard 17 TD season that he was the last time he cared and wasn't injured, but he is easily a 1300 10 TD guy with Favre.
If I was a Packer fan, I would be having wet dreams about Moss coming to town.
If my team was a winner, absolutely. He is the best WR in the league on a competitive team.
See, I don't think that you even have to be a winner, per se. I think you have to be a solid team (at least 6-10) with a better than average QB, and a coach that will actually let Moss run the routes he runs best. When I watched Moss play in Oakland, they threw the ball deep to him like once a game, and then gave him some short passes, and then ignored him for the rest of the game. I think he just tired of it, along with the horrible QB play.
However, if you have a mediocre QB, you *better* be a winning team, or Moss won't play for you.
