08:35 AM ET 11.02 | If Randy Moss is claimed, it likely won't be by the Titans, whose head coach thinks all but two teams are talking about at Moss. "We're always interested in upgrading the football team," Fisher said Monday. "I'm sure there will be some discussions here this evening ... I would venture to say that every coach -- maybe 30 head coaches -- are having discussions about him." ... Safety Michael Griffin and running back Chris Johnson posted on Twitter that the Titans should "get Randy Moss," but Fisher said their feelings wouldn't factor into the decision.

Why the heck can't we go one day without a Viking thread? today we have two.

It's not a Viking thread. It's a Moss thread. Randy has such a big ego that you can't contain it in a thread, unless it's All Moss, All the Time.

Oh, I get it...it's kind of like a T.O. Thing!

But seriously, aren't you glad that you root for a highly professional team that gets rid of the poison before it spreads? One that doesn't make the news every day because it's got a clown for a head coach and some incompetent refugee from a zombie flick for an owner?

The Pats and the Pack will meet twice more. December 19th in Foxboro, and February 6th in Dallas.

Anyone with half a brain could have seen that the Moss-to-the-Vikings trade would not work out, not the way Favre has been playing this season. And not with a weak coach like Childress, and a prima donna QB who seems to be running the team. Who will claim him? Maybe St. Louis. Spagnuolo is a strong coach and Bradford can get the ball deep to Moss. But if I were Bradford, the first thing I'd say to Moss is, "I'll get you the ball, but if you dog it on even one play, you'll never see a ball thrown to you again in your life."

Doesn't matter. They will still end up 2nd in the division.

I'm glad for your enthusiasm, but the Pack really needs to get healthy.

Their in a tie for last right now with Detroit. with the soap opera going on there. they better get use to being there. Greenbay, Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota. that's how the NFC north ends up.

You sound like my wife, always complaining about her ailments. You said the same thing last week, before the Jets game.

And, I was SO happy to see that game as the first game on Sunday. I really thought they'd go with Denver-SanFran, because it was in London.

So, who in the NFC is going to beat Green Bay? The G-men haven't done much but play girls school teams, and I don't think Atlanta is ready for prime time. The Saints are sputtering, and I think they may have been another one-hit-wonder team.

Fear the Cheese.

I didn't say I didn't agree. I would rather have a healthier team right now.

Fisher might be one of the few coaches who can handle Moss. Fisher is comfortable with his job, has a solid system and is not always trying to "put the players in their place" (i.e. Shannahan)

November 2, 2010  09:51 AM ET

It was easy to see the Vikings dropping Moss because he didn't want to go back in the first place. He wanted to go to a team that was similar to the Patriots but he didn't get a choice in the decision. I just didn't think that the Viking would outright cut him and get nothing in return??
I wonder if Indy is one of the teams considering him?? They are in need of a deep threat receiver and Moss definitely fits the bill. It will be interesting to see where he ends up but whereever he goes I am sure he will like it better than where he was. No offense to Minnesota but I just don't think he wanted to go back.

McNabb to Moss..God help us.

Who is that other guy in the picture?

That I am... hell got another draft pick for nothing....nice. Now I hope Moss comes back sufficintly humbled and from his interview i'd say he wouldn't make a wave if he got back in NE. I wouldn't be suprised if this wasn't all Belichicks plan, send Moss out to a legit team and bring em down further from the inside as well as get a pick and then go ahead and try and get Moss back this year or next...don't put it past the man, hahaha.

Moss back to NE? Not unless he's a free agent and works for the league minimum.
