THE QUESTION

Is Moss holding The Patriots back?

Is the wide receiver's baggage outweighing his talent?

He's got a bit of the Sarah Palin Syndrome.
Things get tough. They quit.

Randy Moss is a selfish player with skill that ultimately destroys any team he touches. No matter how good they can never win a championship and usually desinigrate.
Raiders made the Superbowl until Moss came then they stunk. The Pats won 3 championships until Mr. MEMEME came to town.
I don't know what Belichick was thinking. Moss should be playing basketball not football with that attitude of his. NFL is about team not the individual.
He may be a going to the Hall of Fame but he belongs in the hall of shame and wasted talent.

For such a highly talented receive he shouldn't be dropping any balls. I never saw why everyone thinks he's way above all of the other receivers. If he is hen he'd get open. I've seen him drop how many passes in New England. Someone count them up. I can't remember Troy Brown dropping any. If he had Mosses size no comparison.

I read on a Boston site that Carolina Panthers Sunday could tell play coming up by looking at Moss as he was easy to read plus he did not try hard to get open for passes. Dropped a pass, fumbled, and jumped too soon for a penalty in 4th quarter. Not a good day for Randy Moss. He was sent home from Thursday practice because he was late. Roads were icy and snowy. Moss may have emotional problems.

All WRs are emotionally unstable some find ways to deal with it. Jerry Rice comes to mind. Unfortunetly there are more sad stories than happy ones. Marvin Harrison, Terel Owens, Plaxico Burres, Michael Irvin to name just a few.
Moss is the worse and his ending wont be happy I am sure.

Moss is playing in the same style as he did with the Oakland Raiders. He might be happier quitting and teaming up with Terrel Owens and his modeling career. "Look at me, I'm a cute dude."

Hey guys, Randy has a back injury. Maybe that's why he's looking over his shoulder. Oh, and RLSRD, you "never saw why everyone thinks he's way above all of the other receivers?" You are talking about the same Randy Moss I am, right -- the one who holds the NFL record for the most touchdowns scored in a season? I know that you losers all need a distraction from your pathetic Redskins, even though they found a team yesterday which is even more incompetent than they are, but you can just lay off my man Randy.

P.S. RLSRD is right about one thing -- Troy Brown was the greatest...

For the entire time Randy Moss has been in New England, he has been a tremendous teammate. There haven't been any of the problems associated with him, while he was in Oakland or Minnesota. This man has one bad week and all of a sudden he is a menace to society. That is what's pathetic about the press and fans when it comes to certain players who don't conform to the perfect All-American, apple pie eating, athlete. A Randy Moss cannot have a bad day or make mistakes that would be overlooked if Wes Welker made them, because he has the moniker of the "bogeyman" on his back. The team has always said he's the first person at practice; comes to camp in the best condition; and is the last to leave each day. Snowy and icy conditions led to several of the Patriot players to be late and be sent home from the practice facility. However, it was only reported that Randy Moss was the only one affected by the dismissal, and the press didn't initially elaborate on the fact that weather was the mitigating factor for him being late, as well as the other players being late also. This is the double standard players, like Randy Moss, have to deal with in society, but this won't make any difference to anyone reading my comments either.

"tremendous teamate" "one bad week"?? THHALEJR you must be crazy. He's had 6 catches and 1 TD the past 3 weeks. He has missed practice and caused disruptions. He made the situation worse by intentionally dropping balls and sitting on the bench looking sad. He is a 32 year old man who acts like 10 year old child. THe only double standard is in his mind, because he thinks he can act that way and get away with special treatment because he is so skilled. Well his skills are fading and so is his welcome in the NFL

Wouldn't the Redskins just love to have Randy
Moss? Most games he is double teamed for 60 minutes - still he usually manages fabulous catches. On Sunday he had a bad day - which proves finally that he is mortal.

LSCHEUE: Let's pray that Danny and Vinny don't fall under this jokers spell. He is mortal and he is only becoming more mortal with each passing day. Old and overpriced is what we should be avoiding. Who am I kidding he'll be a Redskin soon enough.
