Randy Moss: has baggage …. will travel

November 02, 2010 |

The Vikings were in a tough spot and they bit on a deal that was too good be true. Bill Belichick did nothing more than wash and wax his lemon, and park it in a spot for the desperate souls to see.

After a day of wrangling and prompting, Brad Childress had his deep game threat, and Belichick spent a bye-week breathing a sigh of relief and undoubtedly laughing his ass off.

Since acquiring Randy Moss, the Vikings have won only one game, while losing three others. Conversely, since dealing Moss, the Patriots have won every single game.

That’s all you really need to know, right?

In the coming days, Randy Moss will pass through waivers and I’m guessing another team will take a chance on him. If he is claimed, it’s going to be a contender. The teams with the worst records get first shot, but they’re gonna pass on him. He’s a waste of money for teams that have fallen out of contention.

That said, I would love to see Randy Moss, in Cincinnati. I know it won’t happen, but a football fan can always dream. After all, it’s been several decades since such a successful trio existed ….

To be honest, I’m sharing the same gut feeling as many football fans and insiders, alike. I’ve gotta hunch on a team and coach who would likely roll the dice on Moss.

His team already contains more exiles than the “Island of Misfit Toys.” And, God knows the skipper thinks he can save souls, change wayward men and revive shipwrecked careers.

After all, the Reverend Rex Ryan can save any doomed life, right? And, in the same bite, he could deny “Randy’s Return” to New England.

That works for me.

I would love to see Randy Moss spreading his “good cheer” in the Meadowlands. I would love to see him playing the Grinch, come Christmas, regardless of his team’s record. And, I would love to see him trying to give the proverbial middle finger to the New York media.

Take him, Rex !!!!

You can change him ….
