I'm not normally one to wish harm on anyone...unless of course we are talking about my credit card company...what do you mean 27% interest rate? I've never paid late once....
Oh, by the way. I'm a packer fan....Some people might seem to think that clouds my judgement when it comes to Mr. Moss. So I'm just letting you know in advance.
Now back to Moss. As I'm watching the Patriots take apart the Bengals on Monday night, I can't help but wish Moss would go up for a pass, and land on someone's foot and roll his ankle. Or maybe someone can horsecollar him from behind (if anyone were actually able to catch him) and he will tear an acl as his foot gets caught in the Turf. Why am I having these evil thoughts? Is it because I hate the Moss for what he did as a Viking? Is it because I hate the fact that the pats were caught cheating? Is it because I'm upset Moss didn't come up to Green Bay?
I analyzed these feelings, and came to the conclusion that none of these things are the reason I wish Moss so much harm. It is because of my love for the game. His play this season is basically slapping every NFL fan in the face (although patriot fans are enjoying their slap). Moss' situation isn't a Jerry Rice-like resurgance with another team. This was a very calculated move by Moss. Moss has always been known as a quiter. He would quit on plays he knew weren't going to him. He walked off the field early in a Vikings loss. But in Oakland, he took his quitting to a new level. He quit on the team.
I've heard the argument that Moss didn't have any talent throwing him the ball in Oakland. That's true, but now that we've seen Culpepper play minus Moss, it appears he didn't have that much talent in Minnesota either. But his skills are such at allow a less talented QB to make throws that aren't so accurate. Moss catches what he wants to catch. And I guarantee, there was no QB in Oakland that could've out-thrown Moss if he wanted to play. But he chose to be the locker room cancer, the lazy guy at practice, and the apathetic player on the field. He knew that he could get out of Oakland if he tried hard enough to not try...And that's exactly what he did.
It's a shame that someone who manipulates the system like that, is so exalted in today's society.
