Despite declaring in Minnesota that he no longer would take questions from reporters and would, in effect, ask himself the questions and then answer them, Randy Moss gave the Titans scribes a little bit of time this afternoon for an introductory news conference.
It didn’t last long (according to Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune , it lasted all of four questions and 184 seconds) and there wasn’t anything mind-altering in the transcript.
But here it is anyway, courtesy of the Tennessean.
A couple highlights:
- He made sure to let his family know that “your baby boy is good … I’ve got these broad shoulders; I can carry a lot of weight.”
I don’t understand why Moss couldn’t call his family to tell them this news. Surely, they are allowed to ask him questions.
- He said he does NOT make the Titans a Super Bowl contender.
“Like I said, I told Coach Fisher this, I’ve had pressure on me my whole life and this is nothing new to me. Instead of coming in thinking about a Super Bowl, I just want to take it one day at a time and learn the plays. Take it one game at a time and if down the road is the playoffs or Super Bowl or whatever it is, we’ll handle it when we get to that.”
- And there’s this exchange:
On what the Titans can expect from him effort wise on a snap-to-snap basis :
Moss: What do you expect from me effort wise?
Reporter: Well other people…
Moss: I didn’t say other people, what do you expect from me effort wise?
Reporter: I don’t know what to expect.
Moss: I don’t know what to expect neither, next question.
Ah, you’ve got to love how Moss takes advantage of his change of scenery to make an honest effort to improve himself and his relationship with humankind. Good for him, I say.
