Default Moss to Patriots ... good move?

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Moss' two years of seemingly rotting in Oakland has lowered his trade value to that of a lowly fourth-rounder. Now we will get a chance to see if he was simply loafing in Oakland or if he still has game-breaking speed. The Pats must belief they can keep him content and productive, similar to bringing in troublemaker Corey Dillon a few years back. Aside from his attitude problems, this position was clearly a need for New England, and I think it'll pay off. Good or bad move?

Yes, it is worth it for NE. Worst case senario - they cut him and lose a 4th round pick. Best case senario - Moss returns to his old form and the Pats get one of the best WR in the NFL. Low risk, high reward.

Well, if the media reports are to be believed Randy Moss supposedly clocked mutliple sub 4.3's in timed workouts this past week, so it does not sound as though the skills are diminished.

The Corey Dillon comparisons really are not apt. Dillon's issues came about due to him getting the crap beat out of him for only 4 or 5 wins a year. He was a model citizen in New England because the Pats were winners. Moss had always been a bit of a headcase whether his team was good or not.

To Donte' Stallworth, Chad Jackson and Kelley Washington, add Randy Moss.

Why do I get the idea that "dink and dunk" or "three yards and a cloud of dust" isn't what the Patriots have in mind offensively in 2007?

Kelly Washington is an average receiver, don't put to much stock in him. He serves more like a tight end than anything else. Stallworth is good, and Moss should be good. Jackson, we shall see....

Never said that Washington was great - but he is another downfield speed type, as is Jackson.

Tom Brady might average 20 yards per completion this coming year.

There is no way the Patriots can lose from this deal. Unless Moss goes postal iun the locker room one day and shoots everyone. I like this deal and I think he will be fine in NE. Someone said the other day (may on PTI) if Moss acts up in that organization "someone will stuff him in a locker". This is true... Moss is not the big fish in this pond.

But he is not, that is what I am saying. Washington is the equivalent of a fast TE, which isn't very fast. He is big and physical, but not very fast.

As long as the Pats win Moss will be fine. He becomes a troublemaker whenever he begins to lose. I agree, it's a good low risk move for New England that could pay off big time.

Now, should they be looking at Keyshawn too?? Seems like he would be a great possesion guy to add to these speedsters.
