That is why I traded for him. We need more fools on this team so we can continue to look foolish.

Randy is right. Go for the points or actually try to score a TD on the 4th and goal play. Spread three or four WR and punch Peterson in behind Hutchinson. I would be disappointed to be on a winning organization the past three seasons to be traded into this mess. For him it's like traded to the Oakland Raiders part II.
Childress has to go! To much talent on this team to be wasting it.

I use to like Randy Moss too until this. For him to praise the patriots like that and wear a Boston hat. Yeah we lost and yeah everyone hates it and hates chilly. I understand its hard to like a team when you don't like the head coach. But I wouldn't go as far as to openly wish I was still on the patriots if I was a vikings player. Remember they didn't want you Randy! I just expected more loyalty from a player whom he vikings drafted.

Moss keeps running his mouth like that and its not going to be just the patriots that don't want him. I was wanting the vikes to resign him after this year but now I say let him go. We don't need ego's like that around here. Players that only plays when he wants to. Doesn't have heart, and not a winner, thats why Patriots go rid of you moss. You're right, the Patriots are winners, and YOU"RE NOT, thats why they got rid of you!! Got played didn't you? HHAHAHA and now you're starting to piss of the team that always gave you a chance when no one else did. Pretty soon you're going to find it hard to land a job.

The fact that this clown was supposed to save the season says all you need to know about this organization. What an absolute flipping joke. And if I have to listen to Brett Favre explain how amazing his streak is and how tough he is one more time, I'm gonna puke.

Moss and Farve. Its all about them. Not about the team. They don't bleed purple, they could care less if the vikings win the superbowl or not. Althought moss was originally draft by the vikes, I think his time away from the team and just his diva attitude has made him disloyal to the vikes and any team that isn't just butterflies and rainbows for that matter. Farve, he's a packer, plain and simple. When he retires, you think people are going to remember him for what he did last year? NoPE. Its gonna be what he did in a green and gold uniform. I sense that a part of the reason why the team is struggling is because childress with his favoritism and stupidy has divided the lockeroom. Most of his players is probably fed up with the Brett Farve here to save the day experiment and the Randy Moss praise the patriots thing probably will just stir things up even more in the locker room. Vikings were already a playoff team before Farve and Moss arrived. We don't really need these two divas to save us. Childress through his obssession with farve has lost the team and players that really is the reason why vikings were good in the first place.

I would like to blame Moss, but I cannot, he was addressing a organization that doesnt have their stuff together compared to a dynasty. BF and Childress has destroyed this team not intentionally but selfishly. Moss is talking for other players feelings also. Moss and the team has had more practice with TJ than BF. Then you start Farve. The chicken is coming home to roost. The same frustrations we have, the locker room also. Favre cannot deliver the ball to Moss, everything is short & poorly thrown, yet the camaras follow his every move. Those 6 year and younger players know which QB should be at the helm and see favoritism and losing. Even the players are screened when talking about Bret.. Randy just be cool, otherwise they'll twist it all around and make you the bad quy though your telling the truth. Your not going to get a free pass never. Play Ball and this shall pass. Your a Viking so just chill. I'm glad your back.

to the moss haters, read his words... He is right, he played a vital role on this team for years, he knows Tom's tendencies, why not ask him for advice? why not absorb that information? To bash him is really to support Childress and his lack of control of this team. Moss has called out his team and should, our team stinks!!

Where should we start, 4th and goal run behind loadholt? really? that guy is worse and more absent minded then Mt Idiot on the other side. Gerhardt runs like he is stuck in two feet of mud. The offensive line has no push whatsoever. The Dline should be called Sampson and the Crumbling wall. Those clowns put up another goose egg on sacks again. The NFL can stop going after the williams wall for PEDS because apparently they are doing a self imposed ban, because they haven't shown up all year.
and last but not least Brett who played great, but do you have to be so frickin dramatic after each loss? seriosly its the elbow, its the foot, now the chin, if he had a concussion, ok i will give him a pass, but carrying him off the field for stiches, really? Mr ironman? if we were winning he would have sprinted off like no big deal just like the elbow and the foot, too dramatic for me and i am a huge fan. Praises for AD, Harvin, Winfield (they didn't throw to his side) and we miss you Cedric Griffen get better soon, and Joey Browner (the last time we had a SS that was worth a S**t.

Moss = idiot, a cry baby and a poor loser. Think how good he would be if he always gave 100% instead of the , well, we'er losing so best not try too hard to catch this, I may have to work the whole game if the score becomes too close.
Every team gets rid of Moss. What does that tell you Mr. Moss?

why did Klink ever trade for this guy?...he never throws to him, it is totally stupid. If I were Zygi I would fire Klink on that alone, why pay millions for a guy you clearly have no intentions on using...Fourth and goal at the one, no WR , no Moss, have everyone in tight, Tahi in front of AP,a gimp for a QB, gee, wonder what play they will call. Klink is a complete idiot and should be fired today.
This team is such an embarassment...and 3 games with no sack, absolultey unbelievable..and this from a team that LED THE LEAGUE last year...yep, some good coaching and strategy on this team.....tied with the Lions? are you kidding me?..

Then why did the Vikings and the fans want Favre and Moss? The grass is never greener on the other side of the fence. Retirement should have been the first thing on his mind when he left the Packers. He started getting hurt when he played for the Jets and then went down hill fast. You can't save a season with a 40 yr old quarterback. He shouldn't have been playing with that fractured ankle and your coach is at fault for letting him play. No matter how much he wanted to play because of his streak Chili should have put his foot down and said you are not playing. I am the boss not you. I am surprised the NFL let him play but maybe there isn't any clauses that say if injured you can't play. And Moss didn't belong there either. But that is my opinion. How many millions did he get paid and for what, just to pad his pocket book. Moss was almost a no factor in the game. JMHO

Game plan? What game plan? No blitzes and no sacks just let him stand back there and pick you apart and when Brady did scrambled, he beat the Vikes down field. Poor coaching all the way around. On the hit to Favre's chin what caused the laceration and dinged him out of the game? Maybe it was possibly a helement blow to the head. Isn't the chin part of the head? I feel a fine coming. Now its time for Chilli to pack his bags and Randy to start hustling on the field. Its takes more than jogging downfield to get open in this league. Time to turn on the switch Randy.

Moss had plans in place for a win or a loss, this was his plan for a loss. You can blame the coaches for not listening to him, after all, Chilly listens to no one. He got booed heavily when he caught his only pass, the shedding a tear was total BS. He is trying to make a point to MN owners, tha he knows a quality organization and coching. How about Belichick toying with our "Awesome" D by basically kneeling on 1st and 2nd down only to know they will score on 3rd down at the end of the game. If that wasn't the ultimate b!tch slap I don't know what is. Randy spoke for more than himself when he complains about foregoing the FG on the road at the end of the half. The over the top complimenting of Pats coaching was Randy's mouth, but the voice of many in that locker room. The inmates are running the asylum.

I thought it was a gutsy call to go for six 4th and 1 myself. Why not? You're 2-4 (at the time), on the road, against a superior team - get the most points while you can. 8 times outta 10 good teams make that TD. Thing is - the entire football world knew it was going to be an AP run up the middle. Childress is too original for his own good.

For Moss - what he misses is the opportuntiy to go to another super bowl - not necessarily anyone from NE. He overplayed his hand there utilizing his mouth and he knows it. Now he has nothing to lose outside of the $25k he'll be fined every week. On the other hand, I have no doubt what ever he had to say about NE schemes and tricks last week to the coaching staff, fell on deaf ears with Childress - his ego wouldnt allow suggestions that are not his own. Thats what got Favre in to a schizm last season with him.

Anyways, be interesting to see what happens with the team next year. Give Favre his release and lets see what TJ has to offer. Moss isnt coming back. In fact I bet he signs with NE again for less $$.
