To all my fellow Pats fans, Jay, Electriceye, Don VIto et al, threads / discussions like this are exactly why this (Moss) is such a bad move. I can take all the ******** "Belichik is classless " comments - they come from biased, petty, jealousies that we all feel for certain rival teams. If the guy (BB)wasn't winning superbowls he wouldn't register a single comment on this site. I'll take that all life long.
THe Patriots run has been defined by many things. THe free agency era, the no name players, the system, the coach... I am most proud of the fact that in the years leading to the need to crack down on off-field conduct of players, our team not only defined success, but was a standard bearer for good conduct.
You can debate how much of a jerk Moss has or hasn't been. And also how much of an ass he will or will not be. The fact that it is a relevant discussion at all is grounds enough for me to say " no thankyou." I support a team that has won 3 sb's and yes I do want more , but not at the expense of compromising other important standards. One team wins the sb each year. I waited 25 years for my first. I support my team b/c of much more than winning or losing. Sports teachs us / our kids alot. I don't need the Randy Moss message of ' don't work hard, don't maximize your potential, whine if things don't go your way, think you are better than everyone b/c you have unique talents, etc.'
I prefer the message we have always sent out of NE. How you play and that you come to play every game and support your teamates regardless is what is important.
I don't by the Dillon comparisons. Dillon never quit on any Bengal team and he had no issues like running women over. Dillon proved to be a true competitor and surely not the perfect teamate. He left this year b/c he still has the ego that is part of being a great back, he wants to be the man and can't stomach being #2. Dillon is no Troy Brown, willing to due what ever the team needs regardless of personal glory. Few are.
I don't need a team full of boy scouts, we have our share of line crossers I know, but Moss is the poster boy for the new era of prima donnas.
What's next ? YOu guys gonna support bringing in Pacman next year if Asante walks ?
Thank God Moss is out of that black hole called the Oakland Raiders. Moss didn't hold the Raiders back, the Raiders held Moss back. I wouldn't be a model citizen, either, in as dysfunctional an organization as Oakland. With bed & breakfast offensive coordinator calling plays. With Al Davis hiring a 15 year old head coach. What a joke.
Moss in New England. Wow. This is gonna be good.
"Kenny Phillips has the body of Sean Taylor and the speed and knowledge of Ed Reed"
He will not make the pro bowl. Sorry, he gets double coverage and he's not good enough (or doesent have the will) to go and get that ball. Better hope you dont lose a few games in a row, or hes falling right off the wagon. Better get him the ball or hes bitching. Have fun
I think he will get the ball plenty of times (even though we love to spread it around), and hopefully he makes the most of it. the point is he really never had a solid QB throwing to him in Oakland, and it looks like he will have a great QB this year. His talent added to a strong cast around him should lead to good things for Randy.
The one advantage New England has is depth at the WR position. If Randy Moss half-asses it with the Patriots then they can slide him down the depth chart. The Raiders didn't have that option. I can't see him 'holding the Pats back' for very long. If he comes in and is not productive you'll see a lot more Wes Welker and Donte Stallworth. This is a low risk, high reward move for the Patriots. Tom Brady and co. have won Super Bowls with receivers that aren't as good as Randy Moss.
haha. The first thing I thought of when I saw that poem was analyzing it. I looked at the rhyme scheme and all that. I like the internal rhyme but you had that one slant rhyme right after. Good poem. Stupid English Class.
