Belichick won't bite on possible reunion

It didn’t take long for speculation to start that the Patriots may take Randy Moss back, assuming the Vikings actually, you know, waive him.

We had our say earlier, but now let’s hear directly from the Belichick’s mouth.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick predictably wouldn’t comment regarding Moss Monday. But that didn’t stop Tom Curran and other Patriots reporters from trying.

Curran: “Hypothetically . . . “

Belichick: ” . . . If the moon were made of swiss cheese.”

    Moss kept a corner and a safety pre-occupied during the game. Belichick would see value in that. I guess Childress does not. My guess is that Moss sees the team value, but doesn’t like the role.
    Until Rice is ready to play , Childress can put Berrian out there. How many defenders will chase him around?
    Belichick always talks about moving forward. He doesn’t have a reverse gear. No mas Moss in New England.

    Belichick needs to be coy right now – the right moment has to arrive first. Bet on this – Randy Moss will suit up with New England against the Browns come Sunday.

    Why does NFL’s media believe everything they’re told even though they’re told lies everyday. You’re like one of my girlfriends, but stupider.

    Is it just me, or is New England ass-raping the rest of the NFL?
    They don’t care where he goes. They just showed on Sunday that they can handle Moss, Harvin, Berrian, Shiancoe, and Pederson on the same field and hold them to 18 points, with Brett Favre having a good game. How do you think the Dolphins or the Jets or anyone else is going to do against them? Who can THEY put on the field with Moss? All these other teams will have to change their offense for Moss. He’s so great at what he does it makes your offense top heavy, but what he does is limited. If I were those other teams, I would not claim him for that reason alone (requirement to change your offense). So what if he goes back to NE. At least your defense would know what to expect.
    If he goes back to NE I expect them to trade him to Seattle for a first round pick, then trade Seattle a 4th rounder to get him back, and then send him to the Raiders for 2 #1’s, then get him back for a 4th rounder, and then trade him back to Minnesota for a second rounder, because you can’t pull the wool over the Vikings eyes.

    Randy Moss released…….That is because he spoke favorably about the Pats in the after game press conference and called Belichik the best coach…and he missed New England Fans and his former team mates and criticised Childress for not going for three points..Childress could not stand it and he made sure he was released….There goes any chance of a Vikings season……………He will get picked up off waivers….any team would be crazy not to……Well we (Pats) got a third round pick for Moss playing for the Vikes for three weeks or so…I think the Vikes also has severe mgmt problems and Favre is far more the problem than Randy……Randy is just Randy….I love Moss—I love his swagger and I love his heartfelt honesty………..Pretty soon Favre will be suspended and at the end of the season Childress will be fired…AND……..the Pats CANNOT pick up Moss off Waivers until the 31 teams ahead of them has passed on him-so it is a non-issue..he’ll probably be courted by Chiefs for Cassel who is Brady trained, Belickik tained and they have Pioli and McDaniels…even tho Belichicks assistants do not seem to make long term head coaches….

    genius.

  7. Pastabelly says: Nov 1, 2010 7:27 PM

    Hypothetically, Florio, if you were to bring Curran back to PFT, who would go? Rosenthal or MDS? Take the bait!!!!!!!!!!

  8. 8man says: Nov 1, 2010 7:58 PM

    Do not listen to what he says. Watch what he does.
    And twitch in awe.

  9. Pastabelly says: Nov 1, 2010 8:00 PM

    Moss and Cassel didn’t work well together in new england. Cassel doesn’t have the arm strength to take advantage of a deep threat like Moss.

    18 points is a good offensive game? 10 points then let t-jackoff get the 8 easy ones.
    favre wasnt having a “good game”. then it got worse.

    ==============================
    I’d love to see Randy back – and I think the team would be better for it. But, not a chance. Not a chance.

    C’mon all you New England Haters…. I was expecting a major conspiracy theory… that Moss is just acting as Belichick’s Inglorious Bastard…
    first he earns Belichick an extra 3rd round pick for a 3 week rental and wreaks havoc with the coaching career of arch Belichick enemy Chilly Childress…
    Next Moss’ll be claimed by Oakland, where things are finally beginning to come around for that team… Moss’ll take care of that, bringing that locker room to its knees as well, earning Belichick and the Patriots the #1 overall pick in the draft next spring…
    Then once that team implodes every team except the Patriots will pass on Moss
    OK maybe that whole thing with the Raiders won’t pan out… but it is amusing to think that there’s the potential that Belichick will have traded Randy Moss for the Vikings 3rd Round Pick, and Randy Moss.
    … ultimately Belichick will have traded
    Is there anyone still saying that the Patriots got taken advantage of on that deal?

    hes not going back to new england folks. they dont want him. theyre better without him.

  14. smithopher says: Nov 1, 2010 9:47 PM

    you gotta give Belichick credit, he’s one smart bastard… I’m a Jets fan and I hate him, but he’s probably the best coach in the NFL right now and I can’t even deny it.

    He won’t be back, and the team would not be better for it if he did come back.
    The Pats traded him for a reason. They are a better “Team” without him and will win more games. Pats won three SB’s by methodolically driving down the field on the last possession. They lost the SB to the Giants when – with 55 seconds left on the clock – Brady forced the ball to Moss three times deep when he could have hit Welker, Watson and Faulk all the way down the field again. Moss took Brady out of Belichick’s game plans, like he did in the second half this year against the Jets, when Brady tried to force the ball to him all second half when Revis got hurt. If they stuck to the short passing game plan with Moss as decoy and hitting Hernandez and Welker underneith….the Pats win that game too and are 7-0. Belichick knows that and that is why they traded him.
    He won’t be back in NE, regardless of how good or fun to watch he is.

    I like the fact that Belichick was able to do a small rebuild of the team without a lot of damage. Now they are 6-1 and in it. Next year they reload big time with two ones, two’s, three’s and four’s.
    Wow what a draft for them. they can be dominant for many years to come.

    Moss is a head case. He belongs in Oakland with the rest of ‘em.

  18. Steve W. says: Nov 2, 2010 6:30 AM

    Question, do these reporters not realize that Belichick could get a hefty fine, and the team itself might be disciplined, if he were to discuss the idea of acquiring a player on another team? Seeing as how he wasn’t on waivers at the time, and certainly hadn’t cleared waivers, that’s exactly what he’d have been doing had he answered the question. I don’t think the league would have been fooled by the ridiculously obvious hypothetical either. So, did the reporters simply not stop to think of the consequences of Belichick answering their question, did they know and not care, or were they actively trying to bait him into giving them something to report about Moss and a future story detailing how the league came down on him for tampering with another team’s roster?

    __________________________
    Check Favre’s numbers. The Vikings were focusing more on the running game early on, but I think Favre was 22 of 32 passing accuracy for 259 yards. He didn’t throw a TD, but he got them in position for the TDs they did get. He was credited with one pick, but that pick came when a defender pried the ball out of a receivers hands before he was credited with possession. So, while he wasn’t lighting up the scoreboard, he was having a solid game. Jackson’s TD pass, however, was incredibly simple. It was maybe a five yard pass to a guy no one was covering.
