No chance. If Ted Thompson wouldn't make the move in 2007 or 2008, he's not making it now.

My roommate has been a Rams fan since they were in LA. I know he would be really excited if they picked up Moss and I think it would be a good fit.

But if he does actually get waived, it doesn't cost him anything this time. And it does remind me of when the Pack claimed Andre Rison in the '96 season en route to the Super Bowl.

But I don't think Moss is a good fit in Green Bay. They've got good young WRs that have potential, and Moss isn't going to replace Finley. Maybe San Diego or Indianapolis, two other teams that have seen a lot of injuries at WR?

Since Moss hasn't been offically waived yet and members of the Vikings' front office weren't told of the move, how quickly does this story turn into "Vikings Keep Moss, Name Leslie Frazier New Head Coach"?

Moss was a free agent in 2008.

Please no. I've enjoyed two things the last few years; Childress's coaching, and the thought of Frazier finally leaving the division.

The Post-Dispatch's Jeff Gordon has a decent column about why it wouldn't be.

I'm hoping against hope that Childress gets overruled and Moss doesn't get waived after all, thus delighting us with eight weeks of the most awkward coach-receiver dynamic in the history of histories.

I'm not a Colts fan or anything like that, and I don't actually think it would happen for a bunch of reasons, but I love the idea of Randy Moss playing with Peyton Manning.

EDIT: And Reggie Wayne! That would be awesome.

Perhaps not, but maybe we should be looking in the direction of the other division rival.

Lord knows if Cutler can stay on his feet long enough, he can find Moss in that Martz offense.

That "if" should be in capital letters and ten feet tall. And all the plays to Moss will be set-up by Martz's new innovation, the eleven-step drop.

Also love this bit from ESPN:


    ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter said various league sources indicated the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots and the Bears could be possibly interested in making a claim for Moss.


So if the Pats get Moss back after all this, there's every reason to believe he'll be a model citizen, having seen the shitty way other teams are run. Moss will be back, he'll be a good boy, and the Pats will have actually scored a draft pick out of it!

Good lord, the Patriots ARE geniuses!

It would be such a Cowboys move to pick up Moss, and they'd get an early crack at him due to their high waiver priority.

I think a good chunk of NFL teams would want him. Those who don't either had him before or are clueless to what he brings to the table. I just can't believe Chilly did this without telling anyone. Christ, if there was ever a reason for a legit coach firing in the middle of the season, this is it. As a Steelers' fan, it would be interesting to see a line-up of Wallace, Heinz and Moss. Its not like we are running the ball since Ben came back anyway.

You can add "teams that are already set at WR" and "teams that don't need the extra headache" to that list. If your team isn't going to be competitive this year you'd have to be crazy to think about adding Moss to the mix.

That said, on paper there would be worse fits than Pittsburgh but I'm not sure they'd see the need to take the risk and I doubt they'd get him anyway.

I'll guess Washington. Their receiving options are pretty god-awful, they'll still see the East as winnable and they've got a QB with a big enough arm to take advantage of Moss' downfield threat.

We can only hope the football gods see the comedic potential of this and make it so.

Someone else from ESPN (don't know who, but I saw the article yesterday when googling information) said it would be stupid for the Pats to put in a claim, because they're 32nd in waiver priority, and therefore if they don't put in a claim, he becomes a free agent and they can sign him for a smaller contract than he currently has (plus Minnesota gets put on the hook for the rest of his contract).

I am aware that that isn't entirely true, since him becoming a free agent also means the Pats have to compete with the rest of the league for contract value.

Here's what you really meant to type:

Speaking of that, listening to KFAN right now, ( http://www.kfan.com/pages/psn_powertrip.html ), and one of the guys just dug up a story of something that happened in the locker room last Friday during practice.

When the team broke for lunch, they went to eat and Moss's reaction to the local caterer's chow:

"What the 'bleep' is this? I wouldn't feed this to my dog! I used to eat stuff like this, that is until I got money."

Apparently, quite a few of the Vike's teammates were thoroughly embarrassed by his actions, and when Chilly broke the news in the meeting yesterday morning, there were many heads nodding in approval.


Still, Moss actions or no Moss, can someone (ie: Zygi Wilf) PLEASE shitcan Childress?

So you're saying that the Jets would be a good fit then? Sounds more like a Rex Ryan quote. Plus he and Revis would become BFFs.

He's definitely a special athlete at the TE position, that was obvious when he played for the Miami Hurricanes. He reminds me of great receiving and running TEs like Keith Jackson, Jay Novacek, Brent Jones, and former Giant Mark Bavaro.
