Jeff Fisher: Randy Moss addition 'not a mistake'

Ever since the Tennessee Titans added Randy Moss to the roster, things have not been, um, good. On November 3, when the Titans claimed Moss, they were on a bye and sitting in first place in the AFC South at 5-3. Since then, they've fallen to third place while going 1-5.

Also, Moss has done nothing, statistically speaking (not that there's anything wrong with that). But if you ask Jeff Fisher whether or not the team screwed up by claiming him, he'll tell you adding Moss was "not a mistake whatsoever."

"If we had to do it over, of course we would do it," Fisher said Monday per Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. "He has been great. Randy has been great for this team. The numbers aren't there, the production is not there, the play time is not there right now because Kenny (Britt) is coming back. But Randy is a great teammate. He works with the young guys and has fun, so it is great to have him around. We have really enjoyed him."

Okay, so as good as Kenny Britt is (and he's very good), think about how this speaks to Moss' football talents that he's not playing because Britt's healthy.

Look, Moss didn't cause the Titans to go 1-5 (although his seemingly mystical ability to bring down whatever team he's on in 2010 is pretty amazing), but he was CLEARLY a mistake, because he cost more millions of dollars than balls he's caught since joining Tennessee.

No amount of mentoring -- unless it's the really good kind of mentoring that he was giving to Percy Harvin in Minnesota -- is worth that much cash. Much less the failed all-in move that suddenly became the possible end of the Jeff Fisher Era.

Jeff Fisher: Randy Moss addition 'not a mistake'

the Patriots are pretty amazing. I remember when they beat the favorite Rams in the Super Bowl. They were introduced as a team...no names mentioned..the Rams were introduced by their starting line ups. This season after a game, Randy Moss decided to talk about how he wouldn`t be a distraction regarding his contract extension and would behave himself....well thats was the end of his era in New England. He made it about himself by saying those words and not about the team. I cant say how long he has been washed up.. but it sure didn`t hurt the Pats to toss him aside and the 2 teams that got him got nothing in return from Moss. At this point T.O. is a much more valuable WR than Moss. He might just be finished.

Moss just arrived!  Give Fisher a break! He has had Kenny Britt in the lineup for two years.  Fisher is also dealing with an offensive coordinator out for cancer treatment. There are so many great players out there who Jeff Fisher elevated and had to trade because of salary caps, etc.   Some like Derrick Mason probably were considered "washed up"  but not so.  Time will tell with Randy Moss.  Fisher is an excellent coach and knows the quality of players....if they are a possible plus or a total negative....like Pacman Jones who he refused to take back even though he recruited him.  Fisher knows talent and also knows when to move on.  Sure hope the Titans owner realizes this.  There are few coaches out there today with such high regard.

randy moss is a didgrace to the NFL. His parents must be soooooooooo ashamed of producing such a worthless piece of trash. You reap what you sow - f this guy and his "I'LL PLAY WHEN I WANT TO PLAY" attitude. It's amazing to me that anyone would give this piece of a job at all, let alone in the NFL. guy's like this and brandon marshall along with t.o. and others are taking every last bit of respect and integrity from the game. Can we play football again with the real players like Andre Johnson, Asomougha, dallas clark - hell even broken to pieces brett farve has more heart than randy the lazy f'n moss,

There is no denying that Randy Moss is his own worst enemy.  He is selfish, lazy, and self-centered.  The best thing the Patriots did was deal him away.  We now have a team again, with no distractions, and with so many draft picks, a chance to improve the young defense.
Moss had it made in New England, playing with Tom Brady.  Once Tom Brady was hurt in 2008, he quit on Matt Cassell in the second game against the Jets.  It was pathetic and a trend began.  He plays when he wants to play, which is 50% of the time at best.  He does not block.
I find it hard after this year that any team would want him.  But there will always be a Jerry Jones or Al Davis type enamored with what could be exceptional talent, but linked to self-centered child like mentality.  Someone else wrote he needs a coach to relight the fire under him next year and he will be fine.  No coach can do that, even Belichick couldn't in the end.  Only the player, himself can light that fire, and Moss extinguished it a long time ago.

tetzinator,
      
;     &nbs
p; the answer to your 'how' question is simple: Vince Young. Look at any QB in the league who is looked at as the face of the franchise and you will see a guy who lives and dies by the team; who supports the team win or lose; who gives 100% every time and does not trash the team or quit. I am talking about Manning's, Brady, Brees, Rivers, Elway, Montana, STEVE Young, and those types. Have you ever seen any of them chuck off their pads and throw them in the stands when they had a bad game? NO! If V Young does this in the middle of the packed stadium, what kind of leadership do you think he provides behind closed doors?

 Then, to have the owner defend the guy against the coach and the rest of the team (especially when you have a guy like Chris Johnson on the squad) is just ludicrious and only serves to provide positive reinforcement for negative actions that are detrimental to the overall chemistry of the team. Just like any other job, if a guy/ girl gets away with shyte, works less than the others, causes dissent, etc, yet they are not fired, the rest of the employees will eventually start to decline in their performance....guaranteed. It may not be intentional, but it definitely happens.

 Vince Young is not a leader, and never will be. He is a gifted athlete, but there are thousands of those out there. he is too selfish to lead an NFL team. I am sure there are those who will say, look at what he did last year when he started again. Well, it's easy to be positive and magnanimous when you are winning. The tough part is the resilience of challenging times, and Young doesn't have it.

Don't blame Moss for the shortcomings of the teams he was traded to - he was made the scapegoat in Minnesota when Childress was under a ton of heat just before he got fired - it's clear that Childress lost control of the Vikings and he was trying one last time to gain control.  Moss was traded to the Titans who by virtue of the arrangement of their schedule did better in the first part of the season than they did after they acquired Moss.  Moss is a game changer and he will come back healthier and faster next year now that he is driven to do so in order to get a new contract.  Moss knows he made a terrible mistake when he began running his mouth in New England - I bet you anything he wishes he could take it all back.

First off, i do NOT think he's done, i just dont think he's playing hard (again) and 2nd, this was a mistake to get him, he is not playing well and just doesnt seem like a right fit.
