    I think the problem was, he didn't want to be traded. He had a loyalty to those fans, that players in all of sports such as LeBron James never has had.

    The best player I ever watched play the game; it is too bad he didn't play out the rest of his career.

    Wolf did pass on Randy Moss to take another lineman, Vonnie Holliday, in 1998. A terrible mistake which he admitted to later on.

    We didn't pass on Aikman though. He went #1 to Dallas.
    We took Manwich at #2.
    Barry went #3, Derrick Thomas #4, Deion Sanders #5.

    Four Hall of Famers, all-time greats. And our guy at #2.

    Deion would have been on the first contract out of GB. Love Prime though.

    Moss would have been spectacular for about 5 seasons and then he would have gone the way of Javon Walker.

    Vonnie was o.k. Moss was, and still is, a sociopath and I'm glad he's never been a Packer. He could have been the greatest receiver of all time if he'd had a brain.
