MossBy Josh Katzowitz

Randy Moss is beginning to love this social media thing. He’s started his own Twitter page, and on Monday morning, he announced on USTREAM that he wants to return to the NFL.

"I wanna play football," Moss said. "Your boy is going to come back here and play some football, so I'm really excited. I had some things I had to adjust in my life."

On Monday night, Moss returned to the USTREAM machine and talked about … well … whatever the hell he wanted.

The only thing (slightly) newsworthy he said was when somebody asked him if he had regrets for how he left New England last year. Moss answered by saying he had regrets for how his tenure ended in New England (he was traded, so he really didn’t have much to do with the decision) and for what happened in Minnesota (perhaps because he, as former Vikings coach Brad Childress, said "vomited" on the locker room). He also said he regrets how he ended his career.

Among other topics broached by Moss:

Latest NFL News, Notes


His take on the media:

“Do you know why the media hates on me? The media hates on me because I give them nothing. They mix your words and (misconstrue) everything. That’s why I don’t like playing the media. There’s some good ones out there, but I don’t know who’s good and who’s bad. I choose not to mess with them. That’s why I’ve got Moss TV.

“The media has to feed their family too. That’s their job. I’m not knocking them.”

On whether a year off will make his legs fresher:

“My legs feel damn good. They really do.”

Who’s a better deep threat: Moss or Calvin Johnson?

“I don’t know that. That will be interesting to see this year.”

On how he's not broke:

"I've saved my money."

Moss also said he would return to his USTREAM in the next day or two. So, you know, be on alert or whatever.

Bert Farve didn't want to take a hit either, he was knocked out of a game once because of a boo-boo on his chin. He also laid down once rather than be sacked by Michael Strahan, literally laid down.

oOf course he doesn't want to take a hit.  Jerry Rice never wanted to take a hit either.  Come to think of it, what wideout would want to take a hit from guys like Ronnie Lott or Adrian Wilson.

Bring him to Seattle

I am a lifelong seahawks honk, and although I havn't always liked some of the things he has said and done, I would love to see this guy in Seattle.  The Seahawks need a true #1 and even though Moss is getting older, he could teach the younger guys and reserect his career at the same time.  After taking a year off, he should be fresh enough to play an entire season and he has never really had injury issues.  He would instantly become Jacksons go to receiver and provide the guy to stretch the field as a long ball threat.

I have always been a fan of Moss (minus a few bumps in the road he has had) and hope he can come back and have some success. I think what would be most interesting to see is if Peyton can come back to full health Moss ends up on whatever team he ends up on. I think that could be a pretty good combo to watch put up numbers. I doubt it would happen but it would certainly be interesting. 

I also like seeing the question "Who's a better deep threat: Moss or Calvin Johnson?". I think the current answer obviously has to be Calvin Johnson. Moss isn't even playing and Megatron is arguably the best and most feared receiver in the game. Especially deep. If you are talking prime it would have to be Moss. CJ had his first really great year this year. Moss had plenty, including one with the Patriots when he was "past his prime".

I think another interesting fit would be the 49ers. They really need to do more on offense and if Moss can come back in good form he would add another major threat for them to put up points, which they had trouble doing. He is great for jump balls in the endzone.

sstambaugh... that's the same thing critics said when the Patriots acquired him and we all see what records he and Tom Brady set a few years ago. Moss never gave the Patriots any problems until they signed Brady early to a long term contract and Moss felt he should get the same. He was wrong because WR's don't get Elite QB contracts. Besides that last year, Moss blazed the trail. He might have two or three more years left in him....

Rrandy Moss career is over. He is past his prime and hasn't done anything in the recent years to make me believe that he can join a new team and contribute a great deal towards their success or put up any decent numbers.  Maybe another league might take a chance on him, but I'd be surpirsed to see him in the NFL next season.

Whats with the comments he never wanted to take a hit? He is a bone skinny WR deep threat. Why on earth would he want to get hammered by a barreling Safety or LB? If I was as skinny as Moss I wouldnt either. I thought his talent was burning the coverage. He is no Megatron built to take the hit, he was tall, skinny and fast. He used his size exactly how he was supposed to. That was smart. Taking the big hits is stupid, it is for the less talented or heavier cannon fodder recievers across the middle or TE's, TE's are built for the big hits across middle, not deep threats like Moss and DJax. Megatron is an anomoly. Moss across the middle is a death sentence waiting to happen. Could you imagine Moss crossing the middle and Ray Lewis or Urlacher crossing he route. It would be homicide and a short career. Moss was smart and went deep where most could not cover him for the longest time.

Line him up on the other side of T.O. That would be funny. And possible as well....

Brett Farve, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens should be sent to prison and forced to play one last football game for their freedom against prison guards with down syndrome. They can film it and call it "The Biggest Tards".


Get it right - its "FAVRE". Maybe you were trying to be funny but I think people with Down's Syndrome or loved ones of the aforementioned would be very offended by your comment.
