Moss back to the Vikes....interesting. Dont think it will help much as they have more problems than just no WR's. Moss was a great player, but a 3rd rounder for someone on the downhill side of his career?

He is still a deep threat reciever which opens up options for the offense, but he is not a long term option for receiver. That is why the patriots did not sign him to an extension and ultimately traded him. Really doesn't matter, Favre will choke regardless

Now the Patriots will have two 1st rounders,two 2nd rounds, and two 3rd round picks for 2011 plus the young defence that is just starting to come around. The pats were 18 and 0 with Moss and still could not win the super bowl so see you later Moss.

Good point, actually to knitpick with you a bit they have 2 picks in the 4th round as well, and with there most likely being a rookie salary cap next year NE will be able to sign these guys a lot cheaper.

I think BB got some good validation by beating Miami in Miami this week by that big of a score and without Moss catchin' a ball, kind of pointed to the fact that NE can win and win big without Moss. I for one certainly am not complaining!!!!!!!!!! GO VIKES..........

Any team would like to have a caliber type receiver like Moss but sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't.
