Missing Moss? I don't think so.

    Article in Star Trib puts it about right with Moss. How many games have the Raiders won? //http://www.startribune.com/stories/150//

    Moss helped the Vikings a lot. Even more than I expected. I really thought with that new kid Troy W and Nate B the Vikings would still have a stellar O team.

    I'm not skurred of the Vikings.

    Moss would have helped the Vikings. He was right when he said the Vikings are too cheap. They splurged a little bit this year but on people like... Sharper??!!??

    Thanks for posting the site, Slick. I think the new regime will be smarter than Red...and less cheap where it counts. Moss w/o Carter 23-25. Raiders with moss 0-2. Enjoy RaiderPride!

    I'm not trying to talk smack here, but does that article almost sound like a case of sour grapes?

    Could part of the reason that Daunte has 8 picks and no TDs so far is that he doesn't have his safety valve anymore? No longer can he throw deep and let Moss outjump everyone for a long gainer?

    I'm not yet sold on the fact that the Vikes (especially Culpepper) don't REALLY miss Moss. Its painfully obvious to me that they do.

    I realize a big part of the equation is Linehan and the O-line, but Daunte's teddy bear is gone, and he misses him.

    Just my :twocents:

    Yes, Moss fits into the equation, but the changes on the O-line and losing Linehan hurt us more. Moss will not be the savior that every one thinks he will in Oakland.

    I think the reason Daute is suffering is the same reason Brett has looked very human this year. They each are getting pressure right up the middle and no QB likes that. Birk is as big a loss as Moss IMO.
