Moss has more to say

R. Moss reiterated today that he wants to keep playing for New England (AP). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Apparently, New England WR Randy Moss’ 16-minute postgame presser after the Patriots win against the Bengals wasn’t enough. For a player who hasn’t spoken to the media since the offseason workouts, Moss certainly doesn’t seem to mind getting out his point of view.

This morning on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Moss was interviewed by Hannah Storm. Below are some of his comments.

On why he made his contract statements after the Patriots had won a big game:


“I think the timing could have been bad. But it was my first time speaking to the media this year. I wanted to get it off my chest instead of waiting until Week 12 or Week 13 where I really could become a distraction to our team. Maybe it was bad timing. But I cleared my mind to feel good about myself.”

If he understand why his teammates could have been annoyed at Moss’ timing:


“I do understand that. But when it comes to the business side of football. hopefully my coaches and teammates don’t take it as a disrespectful matter and understand where it is coming from. That’s the first time and last time you’re going to hear from me talking about my contract.”

Clarifying his remarks about leaving New England after the season but not retiring from the game:


“I love playing the game. If my skills are going to leave the New England area, which I don’t want them to leave – let me be clear, I love what they do here, I love coach (Bill) Belichick, I love the team and playing here on Sunday - but from a business standpoint, I have to look at the best interests for my family. Next year, I don’t know where I’ll be playing. Hopefully it’s in New England.”

On Jets CB Darrelle Revis calling Moss a slouch in January (to be fair, Moss hasn’t been real complimentary about Revis’ skills in the past):

“Words don’t hurt me. He’s entitled to say what he wants to say. But then again, we’re coming to the Meadowlands on Sunday. You’ve got 60 minutes of this slouch. If what he called me was a slouch, I guess the slouch in me is what you'll see you on Sunday.”

So TALK WITH YOUR GAME PERFORMANCE! stop talking in the media.???

You know that players are requiredto speak to the media after games, right? They get fined if they refuse. So get your facts right. And Moss is a first ballot hall of famer so i think his perfomance has done enough talking.

  Stop talking to the media... The best way that Randy Moss will be appreciated and offered a new contract extension would be to prove it on the playing field...If you want to be appreciated and offered a new contract extension show them what you're made of and take Revis yard a few times with triple digit yard figures...After tearing it up with Revis they will see who is the best...Just words of advice to Randy.

If the Jets will be able to get after Brady, then Revis will have a good game against Moss.  If the Pats line can keep Brady from feeling the rush, the Brady/Moss combo will be able to do pretty much what they want against Revis.  Last year Moss had Revis beat a few times, only to have Brady throwing off his back foot and floating the ball out for Revis to make a play on.  Revis is a product of the system and having a great front seven.  He is still a great corner, but on a different team he isn't as good.

Brady will go out of his way to light up Revis.  Look for Moss to get a TD, if not 100 yards receiving.

Unless the Patriots trade Logan Mankins for a top notch WR.  I don't see how they cannot sign Moss to an extension.  I think he has earned a new contract based on his performance as a Patriot to this point.  I mean who else would you want the next set of Patriot WR's learning from?  One of the best to have played in the past decade.  I am a Patriots fan and would be deeply disappointed if they were to lose Randy over his last NFL contract.  It's not as if the Patriots are stacked at the WR position.  He does not show any loss of speed.  The only problem is why run to the media, we have all seen how the Patriots organization deals with players who try to negotiate through the media.  Not usually good out comes from the players or fans perspective.  This looming lockout does not bode well for contracts, so I understand at this point in his career and the uncertainty of next year, and why he is a little uneasy about his situation.  I am surprised more of the fact no Boston fans have been pushing the team to make a move for Randy.  I mean lets get going on this now and push for Randy to get a new deal.  Let's continue the momentum they have generated with Tom's new deal and the good start to the year.  Plus they just cleared Maroney's contract.  Come on Patriots pay the man.

I don't know if Moss will put up big numbers against Revis.  Revis is great and so is Moss so it whould be a good match up, but that also means someone else gets to line up against Cromartie and that's just something Brady will have to take advantage of.  It'll either be a completion or a penalty.
