Randy Moss faces a former team for the first time

In his 13th NFL season and on his fourth NFL team (he has been with one of them twice), receiver Randy Moss has never faced one of his former teams.

With the name Brett Favre dominating the news cycle and Moss getting fined $25,000 for not talking, Randy could have a little extra motivation when 4:15 p.m. ET comes along.

Of course, his ability to have an impact on the field will depend in large part on the ability of the team’s quarterback — whoever it/they is/are — to get Moss the ball.

If he/they can’t, Mt. Moss could be erupting once again.

UPDATE:  Oops.  Moss played the Raiders in his second year with the Patriots.  We suppose we should have said “former NFL team.”

    Thats wrong there Florio. He faced The Raiders a few years ago, on the first game the Patriots played of the season, after he was traded.

    Randy didn’t face the Oakland Raiders in 2008?
    Did I miss something?

    Didn’t he play against Raiders in 2008?

  4. Tobias Fünke says: Oct 31, 2010 1:02 PM

    In fact, he had 5 receptions for 67 yards and 2 TDs in the game vs. the raiders.
    Fact checking is a lost art.

    HE PLAYED THE RAIDERS AS A MEMBER OF THE PATRIOTS MIKE.

    NFL history disagrees with you.
    Patriots at Raiders on 12/14/2008. 5 catches for 67 yards and 2 TD’s.

    I thought Moss played the Raiders when he was with the Patriots.

    uh-Moss played against the Raiders in 2008 Matt Cassel threw for 400 yards after his father died it was a pretty memorable game- Moss scored two TDs and let Raider nation have it….of course all you pay attention to is off the field issues so u dont have time for actual football

    What about when the patriots flew out to oakland iin 2008 florio? the patriots won 49 to 26 and im pretty sure moss had a touchdown grab.

    what is the purpose of this post? did Randy once spurn your sister or something? your obsession with him is getting scary.

    Screw you, florio. Stick to covering your kid’s peewee league.

    Oh snap! A shot at the greatest AFC West team in (long ago) history? Hater!
    Everybody knows Moss did nothing since he left the Raiders, and Raiders have DHB now! So take that!

    So after you make a rookie fact checking mistake, you disrespect the Raiders (which I am not a fan of, but offended non-the-less) calling them basically a non NFL team.
    Deflect much?

  15. Tobias Fünke says: Oct 31, 2010 2:01 PM

    Honestly you’d look better if you just deleted the post.
    Most people will probably just scan past the headline and take it as fact without reading your petty and deflecting ‘update’.
    Poor sport bud.

    Wow, you’re a juvenile little kid aren’t you?
    With 7 years of ineptitude the Raiders still manage to get up every morning and piss in your Wheaties huh?

    He played the Raiders in 08 dumbass

    Nice Raider jab. Pick on them when they are 3-4 just a few hours before they have played and now they are 4-4. If the Raiders aren’t considered an NFL team at a 4-4 record (or even 3-4)….how many NFL teams DO you think exist?
