    I would have loved to see the face of Fred Belitnikopf's face. Here Fred is in the hall of fame for his ability to run across the middle and he hears THAT excuse?????

    A quick forearm shiver to Moss' face would have been acceptable!

    This is probably true, but let's remember no one on the raiders liked Tom Walsh.

    How does that change what Moss said to the WR Coach?

    It doesn't, but Walsh's system is awful and outdated bigtime. Many players were unhappy with it as was Moss. I'm not justifying Moss' actions, but I put very little into whatever Tom wants to say.

    What if Randy did come to GB? What could have been?

    What if Randy did come to GB? What could have been?

    Touchdowns and titles, maybe? Or more taking plays off, or running routes he chooses to run rather than by play design as in the comments above by his former coordinator? Perhaps sometimes running sideways of the law or with some local fans. Perhaps killing team chemistry or rants against the City of Green Bay, or the State of Wisconsin.

    Maybe Favre could have just chucked it up all year long and Randy Moss would still have the skill to run under it like he did in Minnesota. Or maybe he couldn't, and there would be more interceptions for Favre than ever before and the beginning of the blame game between Favre and Moss. Favre might have thought Randy didn't make the effort to go up for a ball, and Randy may have complained that Favre couldn't get it to him.

    Was it worth the risk? My guess is that is exactly what Thompson weighed as he negotiated the deal. In the end, he obviously felt that the risk was not worth the reward. He pulled the trigger on the Woodson deal for more money than that and no one's complaining now. Turns out Woodson is kind of a loner and fits in well in Green Bay. Would Moss?

    Maybe he was right! Maybe not.

    You have to be kidding me, rigth? What does it matter what you think of Walsh's system. Did you ever stop to think that it was players like Randy Moss that made his system fail?

    What you say is true, but how about having some communication with your quarterback? Doesn't he deserve some communication at least. Something like, "hey Brett, see here's the thing. Moss hasn't had a very good career in Oakland, these are the things we're hearing about him. I know you'd like him, but these are my concerns and I don't think this is in the best interest of the Green Bay Packers." At least you keep him in the circle that way.

    It wasn't just me at all. It was ESPN analysts, NFLnetwork analysts, Jerry Porter, Lamont Jordan, Andrew Walter, and yes Randy Moss. Like I said I'm not justifying the way Randy acted. One thing that worried me about Moss coming to GB is that if times got tough would he just quit?
