Report: Moss deal is done

More than 38 years after quarterback Fran Tarkenton returned to the Vikings after once being traded away, receiver Randy Moss has gone home, too.

With the chances of the deal hovering in the high 90th percentile only an hour ago, the deal has been completed, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Vikings get Moss, and the Patriots get a third-round pick in the 2011 draft.

The looming deal was first reported by Jay Glazer of FOX, who also reports that the deal is done.  Glazer reports that the Vikings hope to get Moss to Minnesota ASAP in order to commence preparations for the Monday night game against the Jets.  Practices begin on Thursday.

We haven’t done the research, but we’re assuming that Moss is the first player in NFL history to appear in back-to-back Monday Night Football games.  (Acutally, Albert Breer of NFL Network — we like the sound of that — says that Moss is the second guy to play in consecutive Monday night games.)

The parallels between Moss and Tarkenton are eerie.  Tarkenton started his careers with the Vikings and spent six years with the team; Moss spent seven seasons in Minnesota.  Both players were traded away.  And both players eventually returned, via trade.

From time to time while talking with Paul Allen of KFAN in recent years, I’ve told him I had a weird feeling Moss eventually will play for the Vikings again.  And at a time when the Vikings are trying desperately to muster public support for a new stadium, the return of the prodigal son could be enough to get the powers-that-be to serve up a fatted calf at midfield of a brand-new venue.

Before that happens, the move will have to sufficiently reverse the fortunes of a 1-2 team that has underachieved in 2010.  With Adrian Peterson and Brett Favre and Percy Harvin and Visanthe Shiancoe and possibly at some point Sidney Rice and a defense that has allowed only 38 points in three games, Moss could be the missing piece to the puzzle.

Of course, they thought the same thing about Herschel Walker 21 years ago.  The difference is that Herschel was never really all that good, and his arrival felt more like a carpetbagging than a homecoming.

    Ok so now the Lions have some competition in the division.

    So what did the pats get?

  3. David Bowman says: Oct 6, 2010 9:03 AM

    I’m a little sad about this, but it will be fun to see the young guys step up.

  4. Samira says: Oct 6, 2010 9:04 AM

    The best thing I think Randy will do for the Vikings this year is get Favre excited to be here. His disinterest has, IMO, been the major factor in the Vikings’ underachievement.
    Super Bowl, homeboy!

  5. Low Pad Level says: Oct 6, 2010 9:08 AM

    Cheap shot about the Walker trade. Moss still has some big plays left in the tank. Now Burt Farve has a chance for a big play when he throws it up for grabs.

  6. Saintsarebest says: Oct 6, 2010 9:08 AM

    too late, they were already destroyed by the siants this year!
    who dat!

  7. CarlHess1 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:08 AM

    “The difference is that Herschel was never really all that good”
    You’re right Florio, 8,225 yds with a 4.2 YPC and 61 TD’s is an average career. Not really that good.
    Yikes.

  8. neg_serye says: Oct 6, 2010 9:09 AM

    Except, the Vikes are only giving up a 3rd roud pick this time around. If reports are true.

  9. Zukny says: Oct 6, 2010 9:09 AM

    This should improve my fantasy team in 2 ways: 1 – A Hernandez now gets a boost as more of a main target, and 2 – Moss will definitely get a lot more looks in the Minny Offense.

  10. jj jones says: Oct 6, 2010 9:09 AM

    Congrats Vikings. This thread should be an all-timer.

    Hate on the Vikings if you must but you have to admire their ownerships “whatever it takes” attitude. It’s time for the legislators to extend the same courtesy and get them a stadium, preferably in Minnesota.

  13. Beagle says: Oct 6, 2010 9:10 AM

    Mike – I have read that the Pats would have gotten a third round compensatory (not sure if I spelled that right) if Moss signed as a free agent at the end of the year. Is that true? If so, doesn’t that imply that the Pats left some value on the table – or they were way more fed up with Moss than they let on.

  14. bruinscup says: Oct 6, 2010 9:11 AM

    Moss was not going to be offered another contract. A huge piece will be coming back as they now have 2 picks in the first 4 rounds next year. The Dolphins game takes on a new dimension now. Think this was in the works beforehand? Moss ZERO catches.
    In Bill We Trust.

  15. vikings3deep says: Oct 6, 2010 9:11 AM

    Just wanted to be the first to tell the Patriots thank you for the early Christmas present. Super Freak is back home!!!!!!!

  16. Vikings_rube says: Oct 6, 2010 9:11 AM

    Let’s hear all the Favre and Vikings haters now that I could quarterback this team to the super bowl.
    Welcome home Randy, welcome home.
    SUPER BOWL HOME BOY!!!!!!!!

  17. hiperactivo says: Oct 6, 2010 9:12 AM

    Cool! Finally Favre and Moss get to play together, this feels like a Favre commanded move, but it’s cool!

  18. Profanity in ALL CAPS says: Oct 6, 2010 9:12 AM

    This is for the fans. I don’t care if they win a superbowl or not, Moss is back, and I love it.

  19. Tjackfan says: Oct 6, 2010 9:12 AM

    Now I know how Vikings fans who wanted Favre here (I am not one of them) felt last year. Patriots should have held out for a higher pick seeing that they would have gotten a 3rd round compensatory pick had Moss hit the free agent market. They must really want us to beat the Jets on MNF!

  20. Mavcop says: Oct 6, 2010 9:12 AM

    Moss-Palooza the follow up to Favre-Palooza I and II. Today at 1 pm cst at winter park.

  21. Dirka28 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:13 AM

    The Patriots are rarely if ever wrong when they give up on a player, I’ve been looking at the numbers for the last few years and moss has began fading down the stretch the last three years, the only reason Moss has been able to hide his decline is that he makes the most of his red zone opportunities. People can say Moss has been double covered this year, and it’s true but Moss has always been double covered and has been able to beat it and put up huge numbers. Not so much anymore. Now Moss still does have the ability to put up big games and beat you if you leave him in single coverage, but if I’m a defensive co-ordinator I’m still going to double cover Moss. Moss will get catches, just not 10 per week like every vikings player and fantasy owner thinks, Moss can still blow up week to week, but he’s lacking the consistency to put up the big numbers people expect from him week to week. Just a fact, Moss hasn’t had over 5 catches in his last 12 games played and has over 100 yards just twice in those last 12. Buyer beware fantasy player and vikings…buyer beware.

  22. zig17 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:13 AM

    i hope this helps favre’s fantasy value lol

  23. madpoet says: Oct 6, 2010 9:13 AM

    They better pay the man, or Randy will be just as much a basket case for them as he supposedly was getting for the Pats. And Brett… no more freaking excuses.

  24. FaulkAnA says: Oct 6, 2010 9:13 AM

    It was great having Randy Moss in New England.
    I hope that things work out well for him.
    Of course, I hope that Favre never completes another pass in his miserable life, so I don’t really know how that will work out…
    Go Pats.

  25. Shadenfreuder says: Oct 6, 2010 9:14 AM

    This was a great deal by the Vikings if they really only gave up a 3rd rounder. The Patriots DBs are going to have the crap scared out of them on Halloween when they have to face their former teamate.

  26. str8$homie says: Oct 6, 2010 9:15 AM

    Drop the Hammer! Too bad the Packers can’t get a half decent running back…..

  27. Ridge_Runner says: Oct 6, 2010 9:16 AM

    At least this drama will make the NFC North one of the best divisions to watch for a while. It will be interesting to see how the “me first” Moss dynamic fits into a team that is seemingly imploding by the minute.

  28. Bwa Ha Ha says: Oct 6, 2010 9:17 AM

    Yeah, Herschel Walker………… The guy that delivered a sack full of SB Trophies to the Cows.
    Thanks for THAT reminder………………..

  29. Osterhouse says: Oct 6, 2010 9:17 AM

    Welcome home, Randy.
    Time to squeeze into my 10 year old youth Moss jersey

  30. Manuich1 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:17 AM

    Awesome, now only if they can get a QB now to throw it to him.

  31. Calistin says: Oct 6, 2010 9:18 AM

    So will Randy punch Brett out when he costs them another Super Bowl apperance?
    Will they both cry at the press conference at the end of the season and walk off in the sunset together?
    Will the Vikings have any draft picks left for their necessary rebuilding for the next decade?
    How long before Favre and Randy start throwing each other under the bus?
    Gosh darn, this is going to be entertaining to watch that lockerroom blow up. You do realize you just pissed off half your defense that needed contracts by giving all this money to outsiders….GL

  32. Jesse says: Oct 6, 2010 9:18 AM

    Does this help or hurt Moss fantasy value? And what about Brandon Tate?

  33. favrecansuckit says: Oct 6, 2010 9:18 AM

    In related news, Ted Thompson swears to cross his fingers extra hard when he wishes to make the Packers better.

  36. SJ Apollo says: Oct 6, 2010 9:20 AM

    Let’s see, Moss gets traded to Oakland for being a cancer. Oakland trades Moss because he’s a cancer. New England trades Moss because he’s a cancer. What is that old saying? Those who do not learn from history…um…something…um I forgot the rest, but there might me a lesson in there for the Vikings.

  37. Tdk24 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:23 AM

    Before he retires, I’ll bet he play for the Raiders again.

  38. Charles Wood says: Oct 6, 2010 9:26 AM

    YES! It makes perfect sense!! Favre finally got the weapon he’s been begging for. Now… when the Vikings fall flat with Favre AND Moss- Uncle Teddy comes out smelling like a rose in a field full of “I told you so’s”. No amount of help can cure the Vikings. The O-line stinks, a 41 yr old grandfather tossing picks and a head coach w/out a clue. It’s gonna feel good when the Packers belt their ass.

  40. neilp says: Oct 6, 2010 9:28 AM

    As a Patriots fan I am hugely disappointed. This season was always going to be tough but now I feel we are done, its a development year.
    Quite why you would do this in the middle of the year I have no idea,m the whole Patriots offense will now have to change. Wes Welker welcome to a double team day each and every day and Tom, you better get rid of that ball because you are going to be rushed like never before!!!
    Sad, bad day in Patriots Nation, its hard to understand this team at times… really hard!

  41. realitypolice says: Oct 6, 2010 9:29 AM

    And at a time when the Vikings are trying desperately to muster public support for a new stadium, the return of the prodigal son could be enough to get the powers-that-be to serve up a fatted calf at midfield of a brand-new venue.
    =================================
    I don’t understand how spending $25 million (16m favre, 9m moss) this year on one player who is retiring at the end of the season (probably) and one who is a 33 year old rental would encourage the city to spend money on a new stadium, regardless the outcome of the season.
    Even if they broke ground today, which they obviously cannot, both of these guys would most likely be long gone before it is completed.
    If anything, I would think this continued focus on plugging holes with veterans on the tail end of their careers would leave the general public more discouraged than encouraged about the long term prospects for this franchise.

  42. Xpensive Wino says: Oct 6, 2010 9:30 AM

    I believe that compensatory pick would have been in 2012.
    Now with this pick, they have two picks in round one, two picks in round two, two picks in round three and two picks in round four in the 2011 draft.
    Holy crap.
    Looks like any hope Vincent Jackson had of getting traded just vaporized. San Diego won’t get jack if a third rounder and no contract extension landed Moss.

  43. TheBigOldDog says: Oct 6, 2010 9:30 AM

    Belichick has lost his mind. A 3rd round pick for Randy Moss? Who takes a 3rd rounder for a receiver of his talent? We could have gotten a 3rd round compensatory pick when he left as a free agent at the end of the season.
    They’ve screwed Brady yet again. We why puts up with it is a mystery to me.
    In Belichick we trust is over. Wait. BB has no idea how angry we the fans, who put that protective umbrella over him all those years, are. He can kiss our protection goodbye which means he better be prepared to deal with the wolves we’ve kept at bay.
    This may go down as the biggest mistake a coach/GM has ever made.

  45. FavresWaffleOutlet says: Oct 6, 2010 9:31 AM

    This has to make you wonder if Sidney Rice is coming back soon..if at all.
    Clearly, Brett is running this team. It will be interesting to see that when Brett throws all the balls up for grabs and Randy doesn’t come down with them, just how happy a marriage this will be.
    I will say…..the odds for the Vikes just got alot stronger, and this Monday game versus the Jets may be the most watched game in the history of MNF.
    This year will be fun to watch play out. I have to admit….my Packers may be tied at the top now, but with no running game and a decimated defense, they won’t be there long unless TT gets something going here. Less than 2 weeks of trade deadline left….yikes.

  46. icedawg9 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:31 AM

    And that is why Zygi Wilf is the best owner in the league. Lowest revenue and still spends his money to try to put the best team on the field.
    Welcome back Randy.

  47. habman says: Oct 6, 2010 9:33 AM

    Trading Moss 4 games into the season? Something definitely was going on behind the scenes in NE. Got to wonder what Brady is thinking. At least it frees up some money for the draft choices coming their way nextt year.

  48. N-Squared says: Oct 6, 2010 9:37 AM

    Vincent Jackson traded to Pats next?

  49. Zach says: Oct 6, 2010 9:38 AM

    “A huge piece will be coming back as they now have 2 picks in the first 4 rounds next year.”
    Like another Darius Butler? Or Brace? Or Wilhite? Or Wheatley? Or Maroney? Or Crable? Let’s celebrate because a TE has had 3 good games.

  50. CC80 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:41 AM

    Love the Packers fans hating on this one. Packers have one hall of famer in Woodson, Vikings have Favre, Moss, Hutch, AD, and 69.

  51. nanner12wojo says: Oct 6, 2010 9:43 AM

    You said 6 years. Moss played in Minny from 98-04 (7 seasons).
    I couldn’t be more pumped. A co-worked of mine said her and her mom will probably cry together tonight. They are die hard Packer fans. HILARIOUS.

  52. hasnivek says: Oct 6, 2010 9:43 AM

    With the Vikings already having their bye, would Moss be the first person to play 17 games?

  53. LittleMac says: Oct 6, 2010 9:44 AM

    I listen to PA every day, and I’ve never heard Florio say he thought Randy would come back.
    That said, I’m excited!
    I’m a bit surprised they didn’t give him a deal.
    But, it’s very clear now, that the Vikings are all in for this year, and next year be damned.

  54. Supersuckers2 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:44 AM

    Kind of feel sorry for the Vikings. This is pure desperation. They wont be any better. Moss, once he becomes unhappy again, will be a locker room distraction. They aren’t beating the Jets so we can count on them being 1-3 before he has any continuity at all with Favre. The Vikes just used their “rebuy” for their “all in season”

  55. MagicMan407 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:44 AM

    Joey Galloway, Anthony Armstrong, Roydell Williams, Brandon Banks? Redskins setting Mcnabb up for failure atleast the Vikings are attempting to give their old QB options.

  56. javafate says: Oct 6, 2010 9:45 AM

    Interesting timing that they waited until the week that the Vikes play NE division foe Jets. I doubt that was just coincidental. With that said, at least I don’t have to sit Moss on my Fantasy team for a bye. On the other hand, my QB’s are Sanchez and Favre. Now I have to consider pulling the old man off the bench.

  57. jen says: Oct 6, 2010 9:50 AM

    After I watched his “nobody appreciates me” interview a few weeks ago, I figured it was time for him to exit. Apparently, the Pats did as well.

  58. the.jammer says: Oct 6, 2010 9:52 AM

    moss is a great addition to the vikings offense! his value is more than just catching the ball – he eats up double coverage and extends the defense. now welker and hernandez will get more double coverage in ne and probably won’t catch as many balls. the packer db’s have to be crying in their beer! ;-)

  59. somesome says: Oct 6, 2010 9:52 AM

    Now Brady will look to the referees after every single play for a flag …. now that the number one opposing cover guy has been freed up to either cover Welker or Hernandez or Tate … Brady will get hit/sacked a whole lot more.
    Moss is more than just a deep threat he always draw the best cover or even double team now free to roam the rest of receivers … we will see how that plays out.
    On the other hand the Vikes having now the ability to line up Shank, AP and Moss will keep defenses on their toes and unable to just stuff the box.

  60. qblax16 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:53 AM

    Thank you Vikings and foolish fans.
    You should go ahead and pick up T.O. too, and complete your locker room demise.
    No regrets here, only satisfaction that we’re not sellouts like the retreaded and rethreaded Vikings team, that never seems to reach their preseason hype and performance expectations.
    New England creates is own success from within, like a true professional organization

    Still got my old Moss jersey, pulling out the throwback today, welcome home 84, looks like he finally gets to attend to the “unfinished business in Minnesota”, it’s a good day to be a Vikings fan

  68. CJ SPILLER says: Oct 6, 2010 9:56 AM

    You Viking fans enjoy it while you can…..I’m sure it will help your team, you better win the Super Bowl this year. I am not a Patriots fan, but guess what? There draft in 2011 is two 1st rounds, two 2nd rounds, two 3rd rounds and two 4th rounds. They hardly ever miss on the draft……within a year or two, the Patriots will win the Super Bowl and their team is set. Sucks for the rest of the AFC East……..Jet’s may win the division this year, but it’s one and done, then the Pats will be on top of the division for years to come, mark my words……..this coming from a Bills fan. Just might as well leave the division now.

  69. lphudock says: Oct 6, 2010 9:58 AM

    A QB-WR combo that is 74 years old doesn’t really scare anyone. This ain’t the Favre and Moss of 4-10 years ago. If they want to play the throw it up and let Randy go get it, fine. That will get Brett killed because his line can’t block for more than 2.5 seconds and he will be hit constantly. The Vike fans are setting themselves up for disappointment thinking the circus is now coming to town. A mild improvement in production…sure. An amazing turnaround….not bloody likely. Brett is going to get beat down throughout the season…that is the blueprint to play them and everyone knows it. No more bye, a black and blue 41 year old qb is going to wear down very quickly.

  70. dvdman says: Oct 6, 2010 9:58 AM

    Wait a minute here…Moss is an aging WR passed his prime in the last year of his contract and you give up a 3rd round pick for a guy that will be a FA agent next season. I’m not sure that’s such a great deal. The Vikings are definitely in a desperation mode here.

  71. Ytsejamer1 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:59 AM

    I don’t like it at all… The Patriots are worse off for this year and likely next year too. Whatever rookie they bring in with that 3rd round pick will be likely worthless until at least two years past the draft date. Based on BB’s track record of drafting, we’ll probably end up with another Chad Jackson or worse…
    Sad…Moss made other guys better. We’ll see how Welker can do now with ZERO down field threat. I wish Randy the best…he was exciting to watch every week and I have no problem with his time as a Patriot.
    Yeah..btw, he’s going to torch our swiss cheese secondary in a few weeks.

  72. GDBroker says: Oct 6, 2010 9:59 AM

    For the record, since Moss has 10 or more accrued seasons, the most the Pats would have received as a compensitory pick would be a 5th rounder. That makes the 3rd rounder make at least a little more sense. Still not thrilled with it though.

  73. lurch's nyquil says: Oct 6, 2010 9:59 AM

    wow just wow. i can only hope this bites the pats in the ass

  74. Jamarcus Leaf says: Oct 6, 2010 9:59 AM

    Goodbye Moss, Hello Julian Eldman!!!

  75. Bowman53 says: Oct 6, 2010 9:59 AM

    So glad to see the Packer fans not chime in on this story. Not much to type when their hands are shaking so bad, and this time it’s not from 2 hours with no beer.
    Now we have a running game and a passing game. As for Moss being “me” first, that’s actually not bad on this team, who would he be taking catches away from? Camarillo? Berrian? Baskett? Shiancoe and Harvin will get their looks and Rice will explode when he gets back.
    Pick your poison.
    p.s. Pats fans are much classier than Taints fans. Kudos!

  76. scoops says: Oct 6, 2010 10:00 AM

    maybe the Viks can throw some $$$ at Mike Tice and have come back to the Viks to coach their O-Line
    …o wait nevermind…his line just gave up 10 sacks…
    …on 2nd thought…bring him back to the viks…
    hahahahahha

  77. Joe says: Oct 6, 2010 10:00 AM

    the vikings better learn to pass protect real quick because Randy Moss need time to get into those deep routes in which he is so effective at.
    but if they keep AP running the play action pass over the top and in the redzone will be huge for the Vik’s with Moss.
    the Vik’s should look to trade Berrian, he looks real soft out there and has never really been that good anyway.

  78. Jeff George Rocket Balls says: Oct 6, 2010 10:00 AM

    Favre-to-Moss. Even though Ted Thompson didn’t have the balls to bring these two together three years ago we’ll now finally get to see them in action.

  79. jim says: Oct 6, 2010 10:01 AM

    As a Hard Core Moss fan, I am extremely happy to see his return. For me, a super Bowl, although it would be nice….. it isn’t necessary – Moss/Farve and the Vikings will offer an elite and exciting entertainment value for any Pro-Football fan!

  80. flaccoseaguls says: Oct 6, 2010 10:01 AM

    Florio: The Ravens played on back-to-back Monday Night Football games in the 2001 season (At Tampa Bay and then home against the said Vikings). This was because of the 9/11 Week 2 rescheduling.

    I have it from a reliable source that Randy is distraught and spent all night being consoled over the telephone by Larry Fitzgerald. Randy needed to talk to someone he could relate to in this scenario and going from Tom Brady to BrINT Favre is about the same as going from Kurt Warner to Derek Anderson.

    this is a big swing for the Vikes if the Pack doesnt get a RB soon!…how fitting that 1 HUGE mistake by ted Thompson (not getting Lynch) is now magnified by this trade

  85. Rhode Island Patriots Fan says: Oct 6, 2010 10:08 AM

    If Randy Moss was attempting to force the Patriot’s hand about a contract extension by “objecting” to his role on the team, then New England had no choice but to trade him. It’s well-settled that the Pats have been at their best when Brady throws to his favorite receiver: the open one. That is non-negotiable—even with Randy Moss.
    If instead the Vikings approached the Pats and wanted Moss now, then New England shouldn’t have settled for anything less than a second-round draft pick, given that New England would have likely received a third-rounder if Moss exited via free agency. That second-round pick could have then been combined with a fourth-rounder to bid for the multi-talented Vincent Jackson before the trade deadline.
    The Patriots would have benefited here by taking a page out of A.J. Smith’s playbook. They have until October 19 to trade for Jackson. Otherwise, they risk losing this year’s “arms race” with the Jets and a chance of going to Super Bowl XLV.

  86. Hound Dog says: Oct 6, 2010 10:08 AM

    So the Pats give up a 4th rounder to get him, ring the Moss shammy for all its worth, then get a 3rd round pick for him. Must be nice to have a management team capable of moves like that.

    I’m a Patriots’ fan, but Bill’s ego got the best of him on this one.
    The Patriots have been good, since Moss arrived, because he stretches defenses and gets additional coverage on most plays. It is equivalent to 11 on 10 football.
    If Bill thinks Tate is going to stretch the field like Moss, he’s delusional.
    And, Welker’s a fine receiver, but he’s not free underneath unless Moss is making that room underneath by pulling coverage down the field.
    Why is Favre struggling only one year after putting up big numbers? Because he doesn’t have Rice to stretch the field.
    I honestly think, at this point, the Patriots will miss the playoffs, particularly with that porous defense, but that the Vikings could make it to the Super Bowl, barring another significant injury.
    The only downside for the Vikings and Moss is what about next year when Favre isn’t there and, like in Oakland, there’s no one to get Moss the ball deep.
    The Vikings better start looking for a QB with a strong and accurate deep ball or this may be a one-hit wonder.

    Funny, I was going to mention in a previous thread about the stadium issue. For all the problems and lack of effort Moss showed in Minnesota, he still was loved by the fanbase here.
    BTW — as far as Hershel Walker. The guy was one of the best RBs ever, whose career was marred by playing in the wrong system and being associated with a lopsided trade. Not his fault the Vikings gave the Cowboys about half of their future Super Bowl team then didn’t didn’t change their offense to utilize his style and strength.
    The guy was one of the greatest college RBs ever (should have won the Heisman as a freshman and would have won two Heismans if he didn’t leave college early), dominated the USFL, was a Pro Bowler for the Cowboys, then lost the prime of his career being misused in Minnesota. He still finished out his career in Philly and became the only guy ever with 90+ yard TDs rushing, receiveing and returning kicks in one season.
    He was a power I-back who needed about 20-30 carries a game to wear down defenses, and was used more like a West Coast offense back nowadays. (Think of using Earl Campbell in Brian Westbrook’s role with the Eagles, especially if the Eagles had traded about 10 players and picks to get Earl Campbell).
    Had Peyton Manning been put is an offense that used him on rollouts, option runs, and screen passes instead of throwing downfield, we’d be talking about how overrated he was because he wouldn’t have succeeded either.

  92. Footloosegirl10 says: Oct 6, 2010 10:16 AM

    I couldn’t be happier! A good move for the Vikings. Now if the MN legislators would get going on a stadium, all would be good. Ziggy has done all that he can to put a competitive team on the field since he bought the franchise. It is time the people of MN stand up and start vocalizing their desire to get this stadium issue resolved. Lord knows the legislators won’t take a stand on it, so we, the people must!
    Moss, welcome home! MN news, stop running his Esme Murphy video clip. No point in bringing up the past. I sure wouldn’t want my youth thrown up for media scrutiny ten years later. Move on. Rejoice in the potential and write about that!!!

    The fact is the vikings did what the packers did not, the went out and got what they needed to win when the packers balked at a 4th rounder for lynch ouch. Everyone is hating the vikings but deep down inside you know the vikes are back and are now a sb favorite with moss completely opening the field the offense just got scary and by the 6’5 sidney rice comes back ina few weeks backed by a defence who held the sb champs to 14 pts miami 14 pts and the lions whoput up 400+ yrds of offense on the puckers 26 points to only 10 yeah I would say with this team we will now score more than 14 pts in a game.

    He was becoming a distraction constanly whining about his contract, addition by subtraction!
    We’ll see just how badly the Pats will miss him vs. Revis and the Jets? Don’t misunderstand me. Moss was liked in the locker room. Respected by team mates but, he put his own needs above the Team! That doesn’t work in New England! ie..Samual, Seymour, Branch etc…

  98. bleedgreen422 says: Oct 6, 2010 10:22 AM

    Amidst all the Patriot hating and Viking loving (combined with the usual squirt of Jets Hatorade) I’m surprised to see no one commenting on the fact that for the first time in Favre’s career he’ll have a legit down field threat. Let’s be honest, Antonio Freeman (early years), Donald Driver, Jerricho Cotchery, nor Sidney Rice (despite last year’s explosion) couldn’t offer the vertical stretch Moss does. Nor has anyone brought up that Favre has been complaining about a lack of time to develop cohesion with the wide-outs who are already there, now through Moss into the mix, my question is how long will it take for Favre and co. to get on the same page, or for Moss and Percy to pull a page out, twist one up and just say I’ll go deep and you get open underneath (respectively).

    Will this make a difference? Maybe. Is it a desparate move for which the Vikes gave up too much? Perhaps. But there ae two things clear from all this: (1) Rice’s hip injury isn’t healing as fast as expected (he’s still on crutches); and (2) the Vikings are willing to make moves, even risky ones, to improve weaknesses on their roster while Ted Thompson twiddles his thumbs over his precious draft picks.

    Moss will very likely not play 17 games. At some point he will realize he is only being paid for 16 games, and that he did not get HIS bye week, he will take a game “off” later in the season.
    Not a bad trade for all concerned. The Vikings needed something to hep out with that proverbial Super Bowl run, and to stay ahead of Detroit in the division, and the Patriots were not going to re-sign Moss anyway. Moss without a contract extension would have been even more of a cancer in New England. On top of that, the Vikings chances against the Jets on Monday Night just went from 10% to 20%…….

If so, doesn’t that imply that the Pats left some value on the table – or they were way more fed up with Moss than they let on.”

    Moss has 9 receptions in four games with Tom Brady as his QB. Tom Brady has a rating of 109 compared to Favre’s 60.4, so it’s hard to argue that Favre is a better QB than Brady. Something is up, Viking fans. Teams with legitimate playoff aspirations don’t trade star players during the season. Have you notice Pats fans might be surprised by the trade, but nobody is distraught?

    Well, now Favre has ANOTHER excuse when throwing picks into double coverage down field. ” Oh I thought Moss could catch that,”
    Now Favre has yet ANOTHER reciever he hasn’t spent time working on the passing game in the off-season. They should have done this before the bye week so they could work on it. My guess is Moss would have made the same contribution as he did MN for NE.
    None.

  120. KC_Cisco says: Oct 6, 2010 10:54 AM

    A lil off topic here, but CNNSI reported that the Vikings had offered a 2nd round and a conditional 4th for Vincent Jackson? Wow. Gotta say Moss seems like a bargain compared to that. I’m sure the Vikes give him a 2-3 year extension.

  121. Barometer says: Oct 6, 2010 10:56 AM

    God, the Pats are making my head spin. From MNF elation to mid-season depression! My first reaction was that BB has already given up on playoffs because he realizes he can only get so far with his under-construction defense (which is behind schedule and over budget). Maybe BB figures since Moss is back to his old ways trade him while he still has value. But only a third rounder? That’s not right – Vikes got a killer deal. Moss was still double-teamed at all times, which opened up opportunities for Welker and TEs. Those opportunities are gone now.
    Something else is going on. Game 1, Moss cries at the podium about lack of contract extension. Uh-oh, it’s Old Randy. Game 2, Moss gets more incompletions in one game than all of last year (FU, BB??). Game 4, Brady does not throw to Moss (FU, RM??) (probably following instructions, since trade was immenent). Brady breaks the rules, throws one pass to Moss, who adds one more incompletion (FU, BB??). Next Day, goodbye. I’d love to know the whole story, but the locker room must have stenched for only a 3rd round pick to a team they play on Sunday night in a few weeks.

    I am a Packer fan, and though this smells of complete desperation, you can’t deny the effect this will have. I honestly do not think this even helps Favre the most, instead AP. Think about it. All season they have brought 8 in the box because Berrian, Harvin and Camarillo are laughable at best. Now? The defenses can’t key in on stopping the run and AP can run free. And with our dinged up defensive backfield it definitely makes the Oct. 24th matchup intriguing at worst! What’s nice is the Packers have a nice lead to protect. 4-1 after this weekend compared to 1-3. And the Bears obviously still figure into the equation. NFC North just got EVEN MORE interesting and tight.

They aren’t beating the Jets so we can count on them being 1-3 before he has any continuity at all with Favre. The Vikes just used their “rebuy” for their “all in season”
    ===========================
    Pure desperation huh? have you seen his stats the last 3 years?
    They wont be any better? How the hell would you know? Youve been showing your biased ignorance on here for the better part of 2 years. You are proven wrong more often than not( kinda like your text last night that the genius would fleece the vikes).
    What kind of continuity do you need to say go deep Randy?
    They aren’t beating the jets? Didn’t you say the Bears weren’t beating the packers too?
    Are you ever tired of being wrong?
    Moss gets paid = no distraction.
    It’s tiresome to hear you say every time the Vikings make a move that it’s “desperation”.
    You are a complete tool if you think this doesn’t help this team.
    Keep improving from within, maybe you can have 19 penalties against Washington.
    It’s just got to piss you off that Wilf does all that he can to help his team while “liberace” Thompson hoards his draft picks that wind up on IR all the time.

    However, unless Randy Moss is some kind of offensive line guru, to go along with his rep as a deep threat at WR….I don’t see this making them that much better…..especially if he gets pissy and takes plays off or if he can’t come down with the balls that Favre throws up for grabs. This has to make you start to wonder how healthy Sid Rice really is, when you’re desperate for Moss. Now you’ve got receivers galore…and more weapons for BrINT, while AP sits there and wonders what the heck the front office and his coaches are doing.
    For Moss to stretch defenses…he needs time to get downfield. Until that O-line learns to keep BrINT from getting pounded each week, especially this Monday night…Moss won’t be stretching anything but the MN legal sysytem. Just like last time he was there.
    Good luck with that. I hope Favre decides to come back for another 3 or 4…..seriously. You guys deserve it.

    Ha ha I LOVE the analogy. The Vikes are desperate. And who throws to these receivers next year? And what about Rice? He was already pissed about his lack of a contract. He makes less than a million, yet they are now paying to WRs top 10 money and he was their top guy pre injury. SCHISM!
    Again, I can’t deny it makes them a great offense and dangerous. But their O line still sucks and their defense is a huge question mark.

    He’s playing like he’s hurt. Heeeeeeere’s Randy!!
    ….and there was great rejoicing.
    Now let’s see if the Geezer can work up a mind meld with Randy and score some points. Regardless of whether Moss is open, there are lots of targets for Favre, and with Peterson back in stride, this offense just got much better, provided they all can synch up.
    And thank you from the bottom of my liver for canning the loud, obnoxious morons’ comments. What a step in the right direction! You got back some respect by doing that.

    ————–
    Does it ever occur to you that part of the reason Favre’s rating is low is because the Vikings haven’t had a legitimate deep threat all season long? Cause and effect people. The hopeful effect here is that Favre can get the ball downfield now, with sure hands and a vertical man on the receiving end. There’s nothing “up” here, Moss is who we know he is. He became the diva he is today in Minnesota, it’s not like we haven’t seen his behavior before. Patriot fans “warning” us of Moss’s behavior is self-defeating.
    When Moss is on, he’s on. When he’s unhappy, he’s off – we know this. We knew this with Favre too. The trick is that the Vikes staff thinks they can make him “on”, and with Minnesota fans welcoming him back excitedly with open arms, his diva status will be reinforced, making him want to play better. That’s how this guy works, and if you Pats fans paid any attention to him over the years you had him, you’d know this.

    He’d likely be the first Pro Bowl/HOF candidate to do it. Which, if he does in fact play all 17, what does that do for the NFLPA’s arguments against longer seasons?
    Also, I don’t think Favre can give back some of the money they gave him in August to help them do Randy’s deal. Isn’t Favre’s pay raise technically considered a new contract, which cannot be negotiated until the next league year?

    The Vikings get a big time reciever and the Patroits get a draft pick, my question though is, how will the Patroits play without Moss??? Mossm draws double teams or draws the best corner covering him, now Welker will likely see those coverages.

    yeah….we only gave up a third rounder for him…i consider this the exact opposite of the Herschel Walker trade. why did the pats make this trade when they could have had him the rest of the season and gotten a third rounder for him when he walked?

    Amidst all the Patriot hating and Viking loving (combined with the usual squirt of Jets Hatorade) I’m surprised to see no one commenting on the fact that for the first time in Favre’s career he’ll have a legit down field threat.
    Actually, Javon Walker fit that description during the Packers 2004 season, and was on the verge of becoming an elite receiver. However, he tore his ACL in the opening game of the 2005 campaign and was never the same afterwards.

    Kind of feel sorry for the Vikings. This is pure desperation. They wont be any better. Moss, once he becomes unhappy again, will be a locker room distraction. They aren’t beating the Jets so we can count on them being 1-3 before he has any continuity at all with Favre. The Vikes just used their “rebuy” for their “all in season”
    ___________________
    How is it desperation to bring in one of the best players in the game for a 3rd round pick? And how will they not improve by adding Moss? As for them not beating the Jets, you also guaranteed the Lions would beat the Vikes, and Minny won by 2 TD’s. You said the Saints would crush the Vikes, they won by 5. You predicted a Packer win over the Bears, 18 penalties later we all know how that worked out.
    I know this move has you defecating in your Arby’s uniform, but that’s no reason to act like a fool and say this isn’t going to improve the Vikings. You sound like an idiot trying to pass off your wishful thinking as fact.
    And how is trading a 3rd round pick for a guy you’re going to get 4-5 years of great football from considered going “all in?” Odds are that you’re going to get more production out of Randy Moss than some random 3rd round pick.
    By the way, that’s the single most ignorant saying in sports. If a team isn’t “all in” every season trying to win the championship, what’s the point of playing? Sounds like Ted Thompson logic, “just give it 2 more years.”

  143. SJ Apollo says: Oct 6, 2010 12:40 PM

    “Does it ever occur to you that part of the reason Favre’s rating is low is because the Vikings haven’t had a legitimate deep threat all season long?”
    Did it ever occur to you that Favre isn’t connecting on the higher percentage, short passes either? Did it ever occur to you that TDs and INTs really affect the QB rating and Favre’s numbers have him at 2 TDs to 6 INTs. Are you going to pin that all on the receivers? Does Cutler have a deep threat? What about Josh Freeman? David Gerrard? Senaca Wallace? I’m not picking from the top of the heap here, yet all of these guys have better ratings than Favre. The only quarterbacks having worse seasons than Favre are Derek Anderson and Jimmy Clausen. Favre started out “slow” last year, but he had ratings of 95, 115, and 78 in his first 3 games. Moss did have a top-of-the-line QB in NE, and he didn’t do a thing.

  144. thirdandgoal says: Oct 6, 2010 12:41 PM

    lots of talk about ‘desperation’ from the critics of the move, as if it’s a bad thing. as a fan of the nfl, but not any team in particular, i say, EVERY team should be, in a sense, ‘desperate’ to win. the goal of every team is to win a championship. if there is a move that you believe helps you do that, you make it. the only difference for each of the 32 G.M.s, is their perspective is uniquely theirs. i applaud the vikings front office on this one.

  145. mikemcsaint says: Oct 6, 2010 12:47 PM

    The Vikings have incredible talent. The only thing that could hold them back, besides injuries, is their incredibly tough schedule. ESPN showed statistical chance of Vikings making playoffs rose from 38% to 50%. Don’t know how they create this outcome though. Not a Viking fan, obviously, but I love the NFL.

    We haven’t done the research, but we’re assuming that Moss is the first player in NFL history to appear in back-to-back Monday Night Football games. (Acutally, Albert Breer of NFL Network — we like the sound of that — says that Moss is the second guy to play in consecutive Monday night games.)

    Whats all the hub- bub bub? The Vikes pick up a thug who quits on his team, and they have visions of super bowl. This can only end badly for a team that should be a super bowl contender. You have AP and a very good D, what the hell do you need two huge egos like
    Favre and Moss? Put TJ at QB and hand the ball to AP, that equals superbowl ring. Favre and Moss equals 40 INT’s and the waste of AP’s talent. If the team had a competent coaching staff, the Vikes would be going for a three peat with AP & TJ.

  150. dcnflfan says: Oct 6, 2010 1:06 PM

    Really?
    The owner of the team states that this is an all-in season and you’re best come-back is that the Vikings are desperate?
    Thank you Captain Obvious.
    Moss is a Viking legand, one of the top WR’s to ever play the game, catching balls from one of the best QB’s to ever play the game, I’m not a Favre fan either, Viking team members already gushing about the possibility to play with him…
    I’ve watched this team for half of its existence, so I’m always prepared for the worst, but this feels right on so many levels, its ridiculous.

    So glad to see the Packer fans not chime in on this story. Not much to type when their hands are shaking so bad, and this time it’s not from 2 hours with no beer.
    Now we have a running game and a passing game. As for Moss being “me” first, that’s actually not bad on this team, who would he be taking catches away from? Camarillo? Berrian? Baskett? Shiancoe and Harvin will get their looks and Rice will explode when he gets back.
    Pick your poison.
    ———————————————–
    Die Hard Packer fan here… and my hands are quite steady. I’m actually excited by this trade because of all the false hope it may be brewing up in the land of Swiss Miss wigs.
    Did you know that in his last 12 games- Moss has had only 2 100+ yard games and has not caught more than 5 balls a game during that span?? That said- Tom Brady is a better QB than old Favre. So what’s gonna happen now? Moss has clearly lost a step and there is no way he’ll be able to consistantly stretch the field when an already banged up Brett only has 2.5 seconds to get rid of the ball. If this is the year the Vikings are “all in”- they will need some quality O-line help. This matchup frightens NOBODY. In fact- when GB and Minny meets up, a freshly rehabbed Al Harris will be licking his lips to cover Moss.
    Maybe i’m wrong- but i’m thinking logistics here and I have enough confidence in my team winning the division to keep me far from having “shaking” hands.
    Go Pack… cuz your teams moving out to L.A.!

    As a Boston fan living in Minnesota, I’m of two minds on this. The Patriots fan is glad to be rid of Moss, who had gone into Manny Mode in recent months. As a sometimes Vikings fan, I laugh, because now they have three people they can blame anything that goes wrong with this season.
    They have a coach who really isn’t that good with the X’s and O’s. You have a quarterback who goes crackers from time to time and throws really stupid passes into coverage he couldn’t thread even a decade ago. And now, you have a running back who checks out from time to time (but that’s just Moss being Moss, right?).
    They damned well better hope they make their run this year, ‘cuz there ain’t another season in this house of cards. Good luck, Queens fans. It’ll either be really fun, or a complete train wreck, and either way, the Pats will be loaded for bear after the next draft.

The final 9 should be MINIMUM 6-7 wins and 9 or 10 wins gets them IN the playoffs! WITH Sidney Rice, NOONE will want to play them!

  158. footballrulz says: Oct 6, 2010 3:28 PM

    Not really concerned about what the Vikes do as far as a SB run. What concerns me ishow this affects the GB/Vikes games. It’s been clearly shown that the Pack D cannot cover the middle of the field 10-15 yards down. Capers calls too many blitzes and Hawk always leaves the middle open. Anybody notice how many plays Detroit had last SUnday where 6-7 Packers were already past the receiver when Hill just dumped it off? Hell,CHicago did the same thing.
    Now if Moss and Favre actually do gel the GB secondary will spend way too much time worrying about MOss and the middle will just be that much more wide open.
    There’s alot that remains to be seen here and there is a myriad of possibilities but you have to admire the Vike FO –I mean Moss for a 3rd rounder. Seems like a no brainer to me but of course so did a 3rd rounder for Lynch as bad as GB needs a Running back. We’ll see.
    BTW, at citchituate
    And now, you have a running back who checks out from time to time (but that’s just Moss being Moss, right?).
    When did Moss become a RB? I don;t think AD checks out at all……

    “Packers cant run the ball” – Kravon
    Indianapolis was last in the league in rushing, they lost the Super Bowl within the final few minutes of the game. Arizona was last the year before and they lost the Super Bowl in the final minutes. In a pass first league, running the ball is overrated.

    Yeah, I do realize that. My statement was in response to some bonehead Packer fan who claimed Harris would be “licking his lips” (he couldn’t even get the saying right) to cover Moss.
    But like rcthe7th said, Woodson will get destroyed one on one against Moss. Woodson’s whole game is trying to be more physical. He has no chance of shutting Moss down on a jump ball, he would lose every time. Woodson is a ball hawk, but it’s going to be tough to snag a pass he can’t reach., and there’s no way Charles keeps up with Moss on a deep route, not fast enough. I really do hope they try to match Woodson one on one with Moss, that would be fun to watch.

    ________________
    Absolutely, Favre threw a terrible, bone headed pass. But if McCarthy had done his job, made an adjustment, and gave Harris the help he so desperately needed, the Packers would have been up by 2 scores without Burress running wild. And if GB is up by 10 pts, there is no overtime, and no horrible INT.
    So you can be a typical Packer fan and blame the entire game on one bad play by Favre, or see it for what it really is, and blame the coach for an entire game of ineptitude. Honestly, which one makes more sense?

  168. footballrulz says: Oct 6, 2010 7:36 PM

    Majik–I agree with everything you said, no arguement. The same can be said for the 2009 game. But that didn;t happen and it boiled down to OT’s (or 4th qtr chances to ice th game). In both instances one man, by himself with the ball in his hand and the game on the line, made a dreadful decision. Favre is the best regular season QB in the league IMO, he just presses to hard when it comes down to the big games and it all gets laid on his back. He’s not alone–so far Rodgers has yet to prove he’s got big game “game” either, as well as Cutler, Romo, etc, etc.
    Majik-I repect you and am not going to get into an epic arguement over this. I guess, much as we did last year over fair weather fans we can just repectfully agree to disagree.

    Bottom line is when the game was on the line, for whatever reason, the same man, with the ball in his hand & the game on the line, in 2007 & 2009 made a dreadful decision and the game was lost for his team..No one other but him. His last decisions were his alone. And that has been the case in many playoff games since 1997. Defend him all you want. BF is the best regular season QB in recent history but he chokes when the big time game is on his shoulders. Let’s see what happens this year. Maybe he’ll pull off one last miracle. Hell, with his career, he deserves it.
    I repsect you as well as whatever handle Chicken has on any given day, ACS (you need to getover that BS–hell, you even put Supers criminal record out there for all of us to see) BCS, Pervy, Super and all of us that have been here for a year or two (I know I m missing a few and am purposely not bringing some of the more obvious idiots into this, (gravy, contra, se18a29hut, sando, fof {where is she]?)

    You make sense Majik but I was at the game and Favre was clearly outplayed by Eli. Favre’s whole 2nd half & overtime of that game was terrible – he threw 2 picks and it should have been 3 or 4. And there wasn’t that much pressure on him, Tauscher actually played an awesome game and shut down Strahan. Yes there was no running game but consistently Favre went to the wrong receiver locking in on Koren Robinson? Even the last pass all the other receivers appeared to be open and he throws to the blanketed receiver.

  174. Majik Bullet says: Oct 6, 2010 10:22 PM

    I was there as well. I never said Favre played a great game that day, he really didn’t. But, if MM had an ounce of coaching ability, his performance would have been enough to win that game handily. Don’t forget, the Packers running game was nonexistent that day, Favre was the entire offense. And in below zero temps, you need to be able to count on the running game.
    And I wouldn’t say that Eli outplayed Favre, I would say that MM was out coached. Burress had 150 of Eli’s 250 yards. If MM sends help, that offense was shut down. Some of the worst coaching I’ve ever seen.

  175. Majik Bullet says: Oct 6, 2010 11:52 PM

    I hear ya rulz, fair enough. For what it’s worth, I never posted his record, just that he had a few indiscretions, and made sure not to reveal a name or too much info.

    I don’t disagree with anything you wrote Majik he was clearly outcoached. This seems to happen to McCarthy often in big games.

    Bill Belichick has gotten rid of another headache, Randy Moss, a front office headache.
    Belichick just made Brady’s and all the offense skill players jobs harder. The running game especially will suffer. The safety over-the-top assigned to shadow Moss will now be able to crowd the line of scrimmage. If anyone thinks that Tate is going to receive the respect that Moss gets from defensive coordinators think again. The defenses the Pats will face now will be tighter, the field just got smaller, the passing lanes just shrunk, the running lanes are gone. I could go on, the fact that Randy stretches the defense and allows others to work underneath will showup big time next game. We Should have traded Belichick, since Scott, Romeo, and Charlie moved on so have the Super Bowl Championships. Looks like God forgot how to walk on water, hahahahah

    New England is frugal if nothing else. They have amassed all these high draft picks in 2011, projecting that they will get off cheap after the new NFL contact is finalized. They’ll have a good young team without the $50 million dollar contracts.

    How is my “mancrush” getting in the way. I flat out said Favre didn’t play great that day. But trying to deny the fact that he was the entire offense that day is what’s idiotic. They had 28 rushing yards. 28. Or are you seriously trying to debate that MM was out coached that day? Maybe you’re one of those geniuses that blames that loss on one play rather than an entire game full of coaching blunders.
    Please enlighten me as to what I said that contained any bias. I’m guessing you can’t, which is why you’ve already resorted to name calling.
