Randy Moss is my favorite receiver of all time hands down. I think that unlike TO's joke excuses, Moss is really labeled incorrectly by the media. I think hes really not that bad of a guy to be honest. As a player he has some of the best hands in the game (Holt and Harrison are the only ones better IMO). I have absolutely no problem with this comment.
Yes, he gets paid to do a job, but he wants to let his talent shine and this job ain't doing it. Take this example (this is a REAL story): My father has a PhD in music. He immigrated to this country and had little or no connections. Since the music business is ridiculiusly tight and hard to break through in and he had/has no connections he uses his PhD to work for a church as a music director. He makes his money but he hates the job. Why? He has much much more talent then what that job requires and he can never achieve the potential he has. The job doesn't provide chances to succeed or progress (in Moss' case, the superbowl) and it is repetititve and requires the skills he possesed as an undergrad, not a PHD student.
Moss wants the superbowl, Moss wants the HoF, Moss wants to be great. What is wrong with that? I would want to play for a team that could win, I would want to be a great receiver,I would love to be in the HoF. If it was HIS fault that this wasn't happening thats one thing, but when they throw 0 times to him in a game I would be freakin' pissed that my talents aren't getting utilized too...
