The word maverick fits very few people but I think it does match the actions and attitude of Randy Moss. While I do not care for some of his antics, I do love to watch him play. Whether you like to guy or not, one has to give him his props on the majority of his plays.
“Randy Moss will be taking his talents to Nashville.” “Despite his lack of production, boorish behavior and the fact that his on- and off-field antics forced two teams to part ways with him in the span of 26 days, Moss was deemed an acceptable risk for Jeff Fisher and the Titans, who claimed the receiver off waivers late Wednesday afternoon. Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean was first to report the news.” “Tennessee was No. 22 on the NFL’s waiver order (which goes from worst record to best), meaning 21 other teams passed on the chance to bring Moss onto their team.” “In Tennessee, Moss will join Vince Young and a decimated receiving corps that just lost last week’s breakout star, Kenny Britt, to a minor injury.” “The Titans will pick up the remainder of Moss’ $6.4 million contract, which expires at the end of the year.” “His upside made him hard to resist for a team with playoff aspirations and a solid organizational structure like the Titans.” “It was always believed that the team willing to gamble on Moss would have to have a strong head coach, and there are few head coaches in the league better suited to handle a diva like Moss than Jeff Fisher.” (Chase, Chris, 11/03/2010, Yahoo Shutdown Corner, Tennessee Titans claim Randy Moss off waivers, Retrieved from www.sports.yahoo.com).
I am truly excited about watching the Tennessee Titans now just to see how much work they will all have to do to meld Moss into the fray. If Randy Moss of old shows up and Kenny Britt returns 100 percent, they may be the team to watch. Wonder what those who passed on Moss will say if the Titans goes all the way. There may be a few general mangers looking for jobs if that happens.
