Whether by necessity or design, the 49ers have been using Randy Moss very sparingly so far.

well, if there's a defensive backfield in the NFL that's likely to be torched my Moss, it's the Vikings'.

The only type of people in Minnesota who didn't like Moss were the Minnesota Drive by sports media.As the article stated he spoke his mind.The second go around some in the local media conspired to cause the firestorm that ran him out of town.Moss unlike most preening self promoting athletes dosen't suck up to or even want to talk to them.Un like Warren Sapp,Micheal Strahan,Micheal Irving,Deon Sanders,Chris Carter,who sucked up in the hope of gettting to ride the media gravy train.Moss hasn't sold his soul or street cred for a media bowl of soup. Moss would be a refreshing change from the clowns or borderline illterate types mentioned above.Moss has to much dignity to play media sandbox with the hat propellered ex players in their pretend world of the Jockocracy Journalist.

That's very colorful, purplecosell. But Randy Moss, who looks like he's old enough for Just For Men, speaks more like us fans do. That's why the answer to the title's question is: What the (expletive) is this? I wouldn't feed this (expletive expletive) to my (expletive) dog! Randy is washed up ! ! ! !

The difference between purplecosell and scottsdad's post are absolutely black and white to me.

Has Moss had an appearance in Minnesota as a member of the opposing team in the playoffs?

KFAN radio spent the entire afternoon ripping Moss. Classless. Moss was driven out of Minnesota by the anti Vikings media on KFAN. It is a lot better nowadays with Paul Allen running the show there at KFAN but it still is bad . Mostly when Dan Barrero is on the air. The only thing I can listen to when Berraro is on, is the fake Packer fan he has on named Carl Gerbscmidt. Quite funny. Otherwise the guy reminds of one of those whiny school kids that always liked to stir things up behind peoples back. He is from Chicago and hates the Vikings apparently. His voice sounds like finger nails on the chalk board. Fire Barrero. Fire Barrero, Fire Barrero......

I seriously couldn't care less what position the Minnesota media and fans have on Randy Moss right now. All I know is that when he was at his peak for the Vikings he was one of the most exciting and dangerous wide receivers of all time. Just remembering some of those games where he absolutely torched the Green Bay Packers--wow, that was fun football.

Who cares about a has-been Moss? The Vikes should be concerned with Vernon Davis and Frank Gore.

35 years old? They talk about him as if he's old. If Randy wants to, he'll be playing when he's 45 years old because he knows when to hit the deck before getting punished. Now that's smart football, that's typical Randy who is one of the most brilliant minded receivers to ever play the game.

I love Randy Moss and it's unconditional. That man gave his heart and soul to the Vikings and he bled purple which is a rarity in pro sports these days. I know Randy has issues, but I don't care. Bud Grant said it best, 'get me players that can play' and Randy Moss can play.
