Motivated Moss provides big boost


The Vikings were a Super Bowl contender even before they got Randy Moss -- I mean it's the NFC. As long as you are one of the top six teams in the conference, which the Vikings were, you have a chance. Now those chances have increased with Randy Moss entering the fold.

Don't worry about him not knowing the offense. Randy Moss is a 6-foot-4 Lamborghini. You don't buy Lambos to cruise around town, you use them to drive fast and look good doing it. Randy's made a healthy living running go routes, post routes, and fades. Once he gets in sync with Favre it's curtains for the NFC. Don't forget Randy is a contract year, and anytime he lands with a new team he's red hot in his first year. In his first year with the Vikings he grabbed 69 balls for 1,313 yards and 17 touchdowns. His first year with the Raiders he grabbed 60 balls for 1,005 yards and 8 tds. And his very first year with the Pats, he caught a career high 98 balls for 23 touchdowns while racking up 1,493 yards. The Vikes have 13 games left this season and a hungry Randy Moss coming to town looking for a Super Bowl ring and one last big contract.

Bill Belichick is a smart man that knows his worth to the Patriots organization. ESPN's Colin Cowherd said earlier today on his show that Belichick is the only coach in the league that doesn't have to win now, and I totally agree with him. No one will be calling for Belicheat's head after this season, because the Pats will drop significantly after the loss of Moss. They could bring in Vincent Jackson, but he's no Moss, and you'd be giving up one headache for another. Even if they don't get Jackson, we'll get to see how good Wes Welker truly is as a No. 1 WR. I mean, let's be real about this. Do you really think the Pats can win a Super Bowl without Moss especially when the playoffs come around? I sure hope you do, because we can make a slightly unfair/lopsided wager in my favor.
