Superstar attitude

I didn't get a chance to see all of the Patriots-Panthers game, so it's difficult for me to make a full assessment of whether and to what extent Randy Moss quit. I did see one play that stuck out -- an interception thrown by Tom Brady -- in which it appeared that Moss could have done more to prevent the ball from being turned over. A little later I saw Brady speaking to him on the sidelines.

Although I have never coached Randy Moss, I did practice against him a few years ago, and he was... different. He projected a kind of superstar attitude that we haven't seen since he came to New England. Since joining the Patriots in 2007, Moss has appeared to be a team player.

Bill Belichick has done a good job of handling whatever attitude there may have been. That is the key to coaching such players. You can eliminate their negative attitude, or at least prevent it, through constant, solid communication.

If by "solid communication" you mean a clue-by-four upside the head, I would agree.
