Brad Childress- who I met and can tell you he is the worst NFL coach but a kind soul- said that the Randy Moss trade was a big mistake. The big mistake was actually how poorly Childress managed everything. His entire staff, teammates, and front office are all shocked at his stupidity. I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets fired soon. He really should be axed, the players completely hate him.
Randy Moss was just taken off waivers by the Tennessee Titans. Their coach Jeff Fisher is one of the only coaches that can deal with the enigmatic star. 22 teams in front of the Titans on the waiver role passed up on him. I am not surprised. Even though the talent is there, very few coaches in the league know how to work with players like Moss. Belichick and Fisher are two of them.
Moss will instill something into a passing attack that features a solid #2 in Kenny Britt, and Nate Washington is good for a #3 receiver. However, Britt suffered a terrible hamstring injury and could be out for a few more weeks. Thus, this move keeps the Titans’ passing attack out of the fire. Tennessee are currently in the midst of a wild card race and find themselves second in the AFC South at 5-3.
The Titans pass offense will now receive a nice boost. VY10 has thrown the highest percentage of deep passes in the NFL. Now how’s that for a surprising stat? Chris Johnson now has another playmaker with him in the offense. Does this mean the Titans will make the playoffs? Don’t count on it. However, this move will thrust Vince Young higher on your QB ranking sheets.
This news also involves a star- this one being former- but it is overshadowed by the Moss deal. The Buffalo Bills signed Shawne Merriman off waivers. The not so Merry-man has long been mad at SD and the Chargers angry at him. This divorce was long overdue and now will benefit the only winless team in the league.
The Bills have long been waiting for Aaron Maybin to show up an play. Besides Paul Posluszny- I spelled that without spellcheck- the Bills lack another linebacker that is at least average. The Bills also have arguably the worst pass rush in the league. Merriman used to be what DeMarcus Ware was to the Cowboys in terms of skill. Of course, Merriman’s personal life is much worse than Ware’s.
