The burning question, of course, is who gives up their number: Schiancoe, Rice or Logan Payne?

What an "IDIOTIC" POST!!! How can you be in such a negative mood at a time like this? Instead of being elated in having one of the greatest wide receivers of all time back with the Vikings - you write this garbage!! Shameful!! Why don't you just resign!! Go Vikings! Go Randy! Welcome home!!

Hey Tom Brad Childress is a liability. I always thought you should be covering episodes of Oprah or doing atricles on feminine hygene. You suck ass!

Only time will tell if this is a great benifit for the Vikings. at this point, it cant hurt us. If Rice is able to play this season, our offense will be unstoppable. I think we need to stay optimistic. At least Moss has grandpa Favre to kick him in the but t when he needs it or deserves it:)

That was one of the worst articles I've ever read. I would like to know what Randy did to you to make you such a bitter man.

Randy was put on earth to do one thing: catch footballs. It's a career path that ends at an age when a normal person would be hitting their stride, and that's best case. His priority is to maximize opportunities to leverage his talent, and maximize his compensation. He's smart enough to know that he doesn't have what it takes to employ two-faced Machiavellian negotiation tactics to cover his hide both ways. What Tom bitterly calls "child psychology" is clearly rational decision making from career-focused professional. And Randy is gonna bring it.

This was a great article. This morning, when listening to the news sing "glory glory hallelueh!".. I kept thinking, wasn't this the guy that was so much trouble-- more than he was worth? I wonder what Bud Grant would say?

take of the GREEN and GOLD thong you're wearing TOM...the VIKES just picked up one of the most talented wrs of all time and you write this crap.
BF knows what he has in Mossy...Mossy knows what he has in BF and BF will tell him what he expects and what he needs to do to get that ring...Mossy also remembers '98 and '08...he wants a ring...the fans (at least 83%) wanted him here and never wanted him traded in the first place. here's how i see it playing out...BF...RANDY i need you to do this this and this...i will get you the ball.
this is how i do it and this now how we are going to do it...then he will show him his shiney ring...look at KLINK and say...you...sit down, shut up and stay the f'k out of the way...GO MOSSY...GO VIKES!!!

Excessively negative slant, there, Tom. Randy's got a heart as big as West Virginia. He's done a lot of behind the scenes work with underprivileged kids in that part of the world, never seeking publicity for it. He wants to win, always has, and has been no problem off the field for many years now, if he ever was. He's probably as misunderstood an athlete as there has ever been. I'm thrilled to have him back with us and expect he'll do very well as a teammate and a receiver. Kudos to Ziggy for truly going "all in". Now it's up to us to help rally this team to victory when they come home vs. Dallas. This is gonna be FUN!

Say what you want about Chlidress but the guy gets the player he is after. He wanted AD got him Wanted Harven got him, wanted Allen got him seen Gerhart still there got him. He wanted Moss Seen a trade & made it before some other team made it Nice job by the VIKINGS staff & Chlidress I dont know who could be happier Favre, Peterson or myself.>>> GO VIKINGS

Randy Moss is the "Game Plan." Nice job for the front office. It wasn't working and this is an attempt to fix it. I always thought Moss should have stayed a Viking and he will bring it to the field this season. VJ would have been better, but just wasn't available.

Most of the critics of Randy Moss round here don't know a thing about football. Powers writes to appease those few. Trust me. The Dome (Mall of America field) will be loud and will be full of Vikings fans ready to welcome back Randy.

Not bad BF at qb, Adrian Peterson at RB, Shanko at TE
Moss and RIce at WR and at worse Moss will be a drawing card after BF retires and help sell seats and should help any young QB that comes along after BF is gone.

NOW on the flip side....Moss 9 catches in 4 games with Tom Brady at qb.Why would NE trade Moss after 4 games? Teddy bruschi mentioned it was time for Moss to leave NE so is there a problem with Moss attitude?
Who knows,nice deal for Minn and if they cant get to the SuperBowl now,something is def.wrong.
BF bitched at Ted Thompson while in GB he wanted Moss ect,well BRETT now you got him.

This article wrote itself. Of course there's always risk with a personality like Randy's. But what Tom fails to really get at is that the Vikes were in deep trouble without him. This is probably going to be their best chance for a while. Why not pull out all the stops and see what you can do. It's a risk but well worth it.

The offense that has racked up 43 whole points in 3 games now becomes "unstoppable" with the addition of a 33 year old who has 9 catches in four games and a guy coming off hip surgery? Pass the kool-aid.

The Vikes problem starts with #4 and you better hope and pray that one unfortunate play doesn't elevate Toby Gerhart into your featured back. Because that's the NFL.

It's a good move for the Vikes, but it's a move borne of desperation and you better hope to win some tough 20-17 games against the Jets/Pats/Cowboys/Pack this next stretch because your D is going to have to carry you if playoffs, much less the Super Bowl, is in your future.

Great article? You must have funked the same journalism class Dumb-dumb Tom Powers did! Why do all the worms come out of the rotten Wisconsin dung pile to regurgitate the same old garbage on what Moss had done in the past..Only thing none have you come up with yet, is did he throw rocks at little ducks in the pond?? ranks666 (racid 666) and Ex Fart Fan will think something up...
