Talking Pasquerelli on Moss: Our "sources" weren't so good...lol

Sale impact on Moss and Tice

Quote:
To borrow an old Watergate term, the rhetoric that's emanated from some quarters of the Minnesota franchise regarding plans to trade Moss are little more than non-denial denials. In the "Tip Sheet" column last Friday, it was suggested some of the Vikings executives who were denying Moss trade rumors were the same ones who had started them. Poor choice of words, "executives," on our part. Suffice it to say that some people in the organization were sources for the trade reports they then scurried to debunk.


Nice! Some mail clerk tells Mort that Moss is on the block, and he runs with it. John Clayton has said all along that Moss was staying here. At least one talking head gets it.

WoW that is not a good job by some of ESPN's best that is not good to give Baltimore and Jets fans some false hope that they could have a great reciever like moss.

There are quite a few useful (to say the least) free-agent wide receivers out there this spring - Plaxico Burress, Jerry Porter, Muhsin Muhammad (maybe) etc; and this year's draft isn't exactly thin at the position either. So any team that has a need at wide receiver has no excuse for not coming away with one.

ESPN isn't alone in their wrongness here. I'm pretty sure that Peter King at SI & HBO has his Baltimore roster for next season already printed up, with Moss' name and number on it...

After weeks of saying "Moss is gone from Minnesota" yesterday's SportsCenter was all about how now he's staying put.
