Report: Vikings waive Randy Moss

Randy Moss’ bizarre press conference Sunday night wound up being his farewell to the  Minnesota Vikings.  It’s safe to say this time is for good.

NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports that the Vikings waived Moss on Monday.  At his Monday press conference, Vikings coach Brad Childress mentioned that he allowed Moss to stay back in Boston for a few days before re-joining the team. 

It looks like he can stay there.

We have no reason to believe the story is not true, but PFT can report via a league source that Moss is not yet aware that he’s been released.

Moss would now be subject to leave waiver rules and could be claimed by any team.  (To clarify, even veterans are subject to the waiver process after the trading deadline.  Think Chris Chambers last year.) 

The Bills would have the first crack at him because they have the worst record.  Any team claiming Moss would have to pay the rest of his $6.4 million base salary.  If Moss goes unclaimed — a distinct possibility we’ll know by 4 p.m. ET Tuesday — the Vikings owe him the rest of this contract.

Lombardi writes that Childress informed the Vikings in a team meeting that Moss was out. 

Vikings linebacker Ben Leber has since confirmed the news

Perhaps there was more to the story of Moss not returning with the team on Sunday night.  It’s more likely that Moss’ press conference frustrated Childress more than he let on.  

Either way, two different teams have decided in the last month that Moss’ declining production was no longer worth all the trouble of keeping him around. 

At least the Patriots got a third-round pick out of it.

    Haha! The Vikes are a fantastic organization. Matbe they should have cut Chilly too.

  2. Scotty Fargo says: Nov 1, 2010 3:02 PM

    I broke this news here in other Moss posts about 10 minutes ago.
    Scotty Fargo = #1 for Vikings info

  3. Nogard13 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:03 PM

    Moss to the Bills or Chargers.

  4. p ditty says: Nov 1, 2010 3:03 PM

    Skol last place!

  5. dlmcc0909 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    Holy s-it. Guy began the year as a top 5 WR playing for a contendor and hoping for a big contract. Now he got traded, released, and staring at the probability that he is playing on 1 year incentive contracts until he retires. Seek therapy Randy

  6. Cubano says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    Straight Cold Hommie!

  7. Gambit says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    Can we waive Childress?

  8. minimafiaaj says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    please come to chicago lol. he will prob head back to New England tho

  9. Xpensive Wino says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    Moss obviously isn’t dealing with a full deck.
    Not gonna happen, but it would be funny if Belichick brought him back……….along with Branch and the draft pick they got in the trade.
    In a related story, Bernard Berrian is getting picked up in fantasy leagues at a feverish pace.

  10. Fishhead says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    What a loser guy for a loser team. Too bad they have to part ways- they were a perfect fit.

  11. armchair_probowler says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    Hahahahahahaha what a clusterf**k of an organization.
    I thought a month ago Favre to Moss was gonna be the season saving combo that was going put them in the Superbowl.
    I guess the management is as delusional as the fans

  12. ZombiePatriot says: Nov 1, 2010 3:04 PM

    Wow, this has to go down as an all time steal for the Patriots. A draft choice for a player they no longer wanted to a team who rents him for three games.
    So, does this further contribute to Chilly getting fired?

  13. 49ersMafia says: Nov 1, 2010 3:06 PM

    Wow, Vikings really gonna defend Chilly and kick Moss to the side, as if it’s his fault, he was only thrown to a handful of times on Sunday.
    Either way, Randy come back to the bay, this time with the 49ers. We got Troy Smith playing QB, not THE BUST!
    Moss in a 9er uniform FTW!!!

  14. KingViking says: Nov 1, 2010 3:06 PM

    Unbelievable!!!
    This guy is a primadonna (sp?) but just let him go?
    How many more ways can a team self destruct?
    If they’re going to waive anyone I really believe its time to waive Brad Childress!

  15. Schatt Maub says: Nov 1, 2010 3:07 PM

    Surely, Moss and the Patriots didn’t just orchestrate this whole charade so that the Patriots could get a draft pick.
    If so, very sneaky.

  16. Pastabelly says: Nov 1, 2010 3:07 PM

    I would think that the Vikings are on the hook for the whole remaining 2010 salary. The Patriots should mend fences with him and bring him back for the league minimum. I bet that he’d keep his mouth shut for the remainder of the year. The big fear is him winding up with Rex Ryan and company.

  17. nanner12wojo says: Nov 1, 2010 3:08 PM

    WOW. Sad. The team looks bad. Moss looks bad. This whole situation is unbelievable. His numbers haven’t been very good, but Harvin has turned into a star with Moss being double teamed all day. This will probably bite them in the a$$. If Chilly made the push to trade for him and to cut him he should be fired on the spot.

  18. JimmySmithISaDBag says: Nov 1, 2010 3:09 PM

    Yeah- Now lets get rid of Dumb as Rocks and Silver Fox and get this thing rolling.
    Oh they better not stick Percy on the outside again though.

  19. Pastabelly says: Nov 1, 2010 3:10 PM

    It’s still not an all-time steal for the Pats. They would have been better off with Moss as he opens things up for Welker and Hernandez the same way he opened things up for Harven yesterday.

  20. Love_Boat_Scandal says: Nov 1, 2010 3:11 PM

    Wow. I actually have to give the Vikings props for dumping him. That was a bold move and the right thing to do.
    Moss is too old to get by on his talent alone and was definitely slowing down. Throw in his bad attitude and the Vikings did what they had to do.

  21. prefont says: Nov 1, 2010 3:12 PM

    Welcome back to New England Randy!!! For once your mouth saved your career. We miss you too!!!
    -All of New England!

  22. 12+81=7 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:12 PM

    Belichick pulled a fast one on Chilly! Poor Chilly, the guy was to dumb to see it coming. Kind of cruel, actually.
    OH h Pervy, where are you? What do you have to say about my Patriots robbing you?

  23. Belichick Is God says: Nov 1, 2010 3:13 PM

    The Jets will probably sign him

  24. Sam Axe says: Nov 1, 2010 3:13 PM

    Jerrah will bring him to Dallas. That will solve the Cowboys’ problems.

  25. simple_simon1 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:14 PM

    And the smartest team in franchise history goes to……. Once again the New England Patriots….. What a smart team…. wow….. So they just milked a 3rd round pick out of the Vikings and now they can simply turn right around and pick him up for nothing again…..LOL
    I wish my team was as smart as the Patriots…… I’m so jealous.
    But at least the dumbest organization is in my division and tied with my team for last place….. LOL….. Go Lions…. Lets take out the Vikings this year…. What a dumb team

  26. tooz56 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:14 PM

    Vikings screwed up begging Favre to play, IF Favre really wanted to play, he would have got to Minnesota on his own, and ON TIME. You can see it in his eyes, and the way he carries himself, he is done. Trust me, the body breaks down very quick once you hit 40 and are trying to play with guys in their 20’s. Moss… no clue what his deal is. Maybe he felt unloved in NE until after yesterdays game. He’s always been like that. Poor angry millionaire that plays a kids game.

  27. Scotty Fargo says: Nov 1, 2010 3:14 PM

    My sources are saying the Vikings are going with a youth movement. Basically wrapping this season up and seeing what we have in T-Rex. Childress is next to go. Followed by Wilf making a move to LA.
    Sad, sad day in Vikings land. Our worst nightmares are coming true.

  28. causeiambetta says: Nov 1, 2010 3:14 PM

    Oh god, please, please, PLEASE get Randy Moss back, coach Belicheck!

  29. 8man says: Nov 1, 2010 3:14 PM

    So he could end up on yet another team with the Patriots on their schedule.
    Is it me, or is this just a nutty year….?

  30. TheDPR says: Nov 1, 2010 3:14 PM

    I wonder if the Bills will bother going after him after TO failed to help them much last year. They like Johnson and they already have a younger deep threat in Lee Evans. I just don’t see him fitting in there.
    Carolina, on the other hand. . .

  31. Alpha Male says: Nov 1, 2010 3:17 PM

    Heck of a ball club. Can’t understand why they haven’t won a Super Bowl…
    In a perverse way, the Vikings just got better. They’re still pretty bad though.

  32. Al Davis is my Christ says: Nov 1, 2010 3:17 PM

    so if he is subject to waiver claims, could either Houston or Indy make a claim and play him tonight? I know that that’s logistically a stretch, but is it possible league rules wise?

  33. twinkletoes says: Nov 1, 2010 3:18 PM

    Uh oh… waiver claim time. What’s the 1st crappy team (according to current standings) to stake their claim to Moss?
    Randy thinks Minny was a crappy deal… try Buffalo, Carolina or SanFran on for size.
    Really, when does something like this happen? Never… not never!
    In the meantime… Pats are 6-1.

  34. jebdamone says: Nov 1, 2010 3:18 PM

    worst organization in football…all because of chilldog. how is it that everyone on the planet knows that this buffoon is to blame except for our owner? how is it that we release moss, yet bernard berrian is still on the team!!!

  35. Sterling says: Nov 1, 2010 3:19 PM

    Vikes should have at least tried to get something for him. This is why they’re going nowhere. Really. Stupid. Management. Especially given the impact he could have once (if?) Sidney Rice returns.

  36. Sacram3ntal says: Nov 1, 2010 3:19 PM

    Gotta mean Rice is back in the next 2 weeks.
    Ted Thompson, we know it goes against every instinct in your body, but just do it.
    Sign Moss and start him against the Vikes in MN.

  37. snnyjcbs says: Nov 1, 2010 3:19 PM

    He went from being Traded for a #1 to the Raiders to being Traded for a #4 to New England. New England Trades him to the Vikings for a mid round pick and now they release him for nothing.
    All people look good when all is well in their Life. A persons character and courage or cowards does not show until the going gets rough. Moss has showed he is nothing but a Punk time after time.
    The fun part is going to watch him be picked up by some very bad team. What goes around comes around, have fun Moss.

  38. Freebird2010 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:20 PM

    Nate Burleson is friends with Randy Moss and Bryant Johnson drops passes like he’s allergic. I wonder if Martin Mayhew would take a chance on Moss since the compensation to sign him is basically zilch.
    That being said, as a vested veteran, I thought Moss would have his choice of whatever team he wanted to join.

  39. morningoak says: Nov 1, 2010 3:20 PM

    “Either way, a Super Bowl hopeful just decided for the second time in a month that Moss was no longer worth all the trouble of keeping.”
    So are you saying that not every team is hopeful of a superbowl, or YOUR hopeful superbowl teams? Not saying the Pats arent worthy, but the over-hyped, soap opera Vikings kinda sucked the last time I checked. Surprised you didn’t say the Cowboys are the next super bowl hopeful that should go after him…..

  40. joe.attaboy says: Nov 1, 2010 3:21 PM

    Either way, a Super Bowl hopeful just decided for the second time in a month that Moss was no longer worth all the trouble of keeping.

    Who is this “Super Bowl hopeful” of which you speak? I thought this was a story about the Vikings?

  41. Burritto says: Nov 1, 2010 3:21 PM

    Clearly the Patriots didn’t do anything close to “fixing” Moss. All they did was get him to bottle up his over-the-moon lunacy for a couple of years. Nuts.

  42. Krashie21 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:22 PM

    As a Cowboys fan, even Jerry wouldn’t do this.
    This is so quintessentially Vikings. You trade that pick to the Pats for the guy who was going to turn your season around and then you get exactly what you deserve, which is the Randy that left your organization for Oakland.
    I’m loving this……even yesterday’s pathetic ACTING performance on the sideline by Lord Favre (the cart drive to the dressing room) couldn’t top Minny cutting Moss.
    The most pathetic, inept and clueless organization in the history of professional sports. Is there any wonder why this team hasn’t won anything in 50 years???? And I sincerely hope that for anyone who chooses to support this organization that the moving trucks come in and take this team to L.A. to get a fresh start.

  43. That's Mr Rodgers to you says: Nov 1, 2010 3:22 PM

    I sure hope they cleared this move with Brent first! If not we may be hearing about Farves retirement in the next 24 hours!
    Somewhere in Green Bay Uncle Ted is no longer smiling. He is laughing his ass off!

  44. SpoonFeedBear says: Nov 1, 2010 3:22 PM

    The Bills should be given an extra roster slot and Randy should be forced to play for them.
    He knew what he was doing during that press conference. You don’t disrespect your coach and the organization and then proclaim your old coach as the greatest ever unless you have an agenda.
    Maybe the Raiders will pick him up… oh wait…

  45. mw says: Nov 1, 2010 3:23 PM

    This makes no sense.
    You don’t spent over a hundred million dollars and then pretend that team chemistry or coach’s honor or whatever is more important than the goal everyone has agreed to.
    It makes more sense that (if the Vikes did “waive” Moss), Moss refused to return on the plane because he was pissed off about losing. Col. Klink gave him an ultimatum and Moss laughed.
    The story, if true, should be that Moss quit — not that the Vikings waived him.
    And frankly, if I were Moss, I’d have quit too. Why put your heart and soul into something when your boss sabotages your best efforts?
    Oh … that’s right. The money. That’s why anyone does anything in the Commercial States of America, land of the destitute and the smug.

  46. superfluousK says: Nov 1, 2010 3:23 PM

    Hey Mike Shanahan, you have a much better shot on a waiver claim than the patriots and it’s Randy frickin Moss, he’s gotta be better than Joey Galloway.

  47. edgy1957 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:24 PM

    There’s a whole list of teams that could use Moss and I have to wonder if the Vikings have thrown in the towel on this season when they do this?
    I know that San Diego could use a receiver but would they do it? Hello, Packers? He’s never played against the Vikings and he could get more revenge this week against Dallas — I’m just saying.

  48. Tinbender says: Nov 1, 2010 3:24 PM

    Maybe a UFL team will pick him up. Any NFL team stupid enough to sign him deserves what they get.

  49. BenRoethlisraper says: Nov 1, 2010 3:25 PM

    Seems like the only logical choices that need WR help, and would put up with his BS, would be
    1. Tennessee-w/ Britt out…best scenario.
    2. Chicago-and to stick it to Minn
    3. Washington-I give him a week before he punches McNabb in the fat face.
    Or NE, I guess?

  50. BleedPurpler says: Nov 1, 2010 3:25 PM

    Remember this about Klink, he is in charge, and even though he regrets cutting WR Taylor on Christmas Eve (for making comments about the coaching), this is the same type of situation. Moss made comments, next day he is waived. Seems awfully strange, but then, not attempting to obtain 3 more points to close a half is too. It was very evident that Moss was doubled if not tripled every time except the pass interference play. It is also highly unlikely that Moss will be back in New England. Someone else will try to get him, like San Diego……… bye bye Vincent……

  51. HomelandDefense says: Nov 1, 2010 3:25 PM

    doubtful the pats would get him back. They are last on the waiver priority list. Every team in the NFL would have to pass on him.
    Not that I read that out loud I guess it is possible…..

  52. cusoman says: Nov 1, 2010 3:25 PM

    My God, this is an absolute disaster. Childress needs to go now! Unfortunately, I fully believe that this move was backed blindly by Wilf because Wilf trusts Spielman to the utmost and….
    Ugh, you know what? I don’t care anymore, I’m all out of juice for this stuff. I just want to watch and follow football, and I’m so sick of all the drama that goes along with this team in the past few decades, and it always, ALWAYS comes down to the coaching. For some odd reason Minnesota, in every sport at both the pro and college, has this terrible mind block when it comes to hiring good coaches. We’ve got a paranoid mentality here when it comes to the coaches, and for good reason, they always kill what little of a good thing we have going here.
    Wilf, enjoy your billions, it’s obvious now you’re out to sell the team and will do anything to create a disastrous situation to make the situation more favorable to sell the team. Just know that even though you did what it takes to spend money to make the team better, you won’t be remembered for that, you’ll be remembered in the same line of owners as Bob Short and Norm Green.

  53. David.walden05 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:25 PM

    The bears make the most sense for him given there go for broke mentality and lack of talent at the WR position.
    After being unwanted by two teams already though I can’t imagine many teams putting a waiver claim in for him.
    That would be hilarious if he went to the Bengals

  54. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Nov 1, 2010 3:25 PM

    There are remarks about why just release him but think about it, they watched the films and probably saw him blatantly sitting back and not trying.
    How do you turn around a grown man that says he’s glad to be home one moment, and then changing his attitude the next. They can’t trust him.
    Randy Moss = Latrelle Sprewell
    Seriously.

  55. brasho says: Nov 1, 2010 3:25 PM

    Perhaps Sidney Rice is returning this week… has anybody ever thought of that?
    I would think that the teams on the bottom of the waiver wire will waive at the chance to sign Moss. San Diego on the other hand, could be a possibility…. perhaps Jerry Jones tries to atone for his draft day mistake of 12 years ago, doubtful. I think he probably makes it to free agency.

  56. LowVoltage says: Nov 1, 2010 3:26 PM

    Looks like this is the beginning of the end for – Childress. His regime is rapidly falling apart. Releasing Farve’s deep threat is tantamount to a permanent freeze between Childress and Farve, because Farve now has no valid WR’s who can hold on to the ball.

  57. seals says: Nov 1, 2010 3:26 PM

    this has turned into one of the bigger train wrecks ever.
    Moss- You A Hole, nice effort in your return. To think we stuck up for you as much as we did makes me realize I waste way too much time watching football.
    Childress- You suck nuts also. Your pride will be your downfall. You suck.

  58. FinFan6886 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:27 PM

    Minnesota fans,
    I and a few others have been defending the vikings for much of this year from all the childish antics from the packer fan-base hopped-up on hate…but these last couple weeks have confirmed that the “schism” label handed out by those fans is absolutely appropriate now. Childress has absolutely zero ability to maintain respect from his players and the vast majority of the viking fanbase. It has been said that Moss is merely “misunderstood” but it would seem “unstable” is a better fit. It’s a sad state of affairs (no pun intended) in Minnesota…i feel for you.

  59. APbabyjesus28 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:28 PM

    Lifelong Vikings fan and am done with this regime. Moss was not the problem. The coach and quarterback need to go to. Lets start over fresh. Sick of being held hostage by Favre and Chili getting away with stupid stupid decisions. Promote Frasier TODAY!!!!!

  60. dlmcc0909 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:29 PM

    You guys are killing the organization for letting him go? Why? The guy is giving half effort out there and him calling out the coaching staff to the media just added to it.
    Blame them for making the trade in the first place. When the Patriots call you about making a trade, just hang up on them. Theyre smarter than you. If they were willing to trade him out of the blue it was because they saw this guy was reverting back to his Oakland days of not caring out there.
    I dont blame Minnesota for releasing him. This was the second time now that his refusal to give anything more than minimal effort cost them a TD. Thats the guy who was so excited to play with his buddy Brett Favre?

  61. jpyetman says: Nov 1, 2010 3:29 PM

    To all you “Woot come back to New England” types
    You do realize that moss is now subject to waivers, meaning worst to first has first show at him, and if they put in a claim for him, and he refuses to play for lest say the Buffalo Bills. Then he has to sit out the rest of the year.
    Long Story Short
    ZERO chance he ends up on the Pats, both the Fins and Jets would claim him before NE had a chance.
    Somer lower place team is going to claim him and it will be up to Randy to report.

  62. RexRyanHasntSeenHisDinkySince1987 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:29 PM

    There is no way he ends up back in New England unless he clears waivers, in other words, NO team puts in a claim. Because New England is 6-1, best record in football, they get last dibs on Moss…..
    And there is NO way, that he gets past the Jets. The Jets would put in a waiver clam just to keep him off the Pats roster….

  63. scotthallisgod says: Nov 1, 2010 3:30 PM

    People tend to forget the patriots completely overpaid for Deion Branch, they got a 3rd rounder for moss and then sent a 4th rounder to seattle for Branch, that is pretty terrible. They also would have gotten a 4th rounder if moss signed elsewhere after the season since he is a 10 year veteran, they really traded Moss and a 4th round pick for a 3rd round pick and Deion Branch. Not really that great of a deal when all is said and done. There is no way he comes back to the Patriots, if any of the locker room rumors were real (regardless of all the denying both sides have done), he is done as a patriot.

  64. steelkiller says: Nov 1, 2010 3:30 PM

    If Moss gets claimed by a bad team who has the first chance to grab him,,,like say Buffalo, or Carolina,,,Moss doesn’t have a choice but to play there. Those are the rules. If he refuses, he will be ruled Ineligable for the rest of the season, and not get paid. So it’s not like Moss can just pick where he wants to play.
    But, if Buffalo, and a few others don’t claim him,,,how GREAT would it be to see the Bungals grab him ? Moss-TO-and Ocho!

  65. FinFan6886 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:31 PM

    The Dolphins absolutely need a deep threat wide receiver but I sincerely hope they do not consider signing Randy Moss. There is obviously something wrong with his mental state. At some point, somebody will start reporting that he may have intentionally played poorly against his old team…this could get much bigger than it already is.

  66. pkrlvr says: Nov 1, 2010 3:33 PM

    I think it was pretty obvious Moss didn’t want to play for Childress. It was also obvious that Moss quit on a lot of plays. Why keep a guy like that around?

  67. Thor_of_Valhalla says: Nov 1, 2010 3:33 PM

    Wow, just wow!!! Something has to give with the Vikings… I was holding out hope that the Vikes might come back from 2-5, but there are obviously bigger things going on behind the scenes… They had their chance when they decided to put 12 men in the huddle. Flush this year and start the rebuilding process.

  68. headerpdx says: Nov 1, 2010 3:35 PM

    Rosenthal,
    Your story mentions that Randy has to go through the NFL waiver system… but isn’t the waiver system non-applicable to a player with greater than 4 years experience?
    Is this a mistake? Can’t Randy now sign with anybody he choses?

  69. CsanBoySmith says: Nov 1, 2010 3:36 PM

    LOL at all of the Viking loser fans who bought brand spanking new Randy Moss Authentic Vikings Jerseys…..and haven’t even received them in the mail yet!!!
    I am laughing hard right now just thinking about how hard Belichek is laughing right now…

  70. Securb says: Nov 1, 2010 3:36 PM

    The Dolphins didnt start Hartline Sunday I dont think they are thrilled with his production. Moss would free up Marshall in a big way or vise-versa. Miami needs a wideout and they have proven they can deal with trouble players. Ricky, Marshall, Richie “The Headbutter” I could see them making the move.

  71. lamajet says: Nov 1, 2010 3:37 PM

    When will the rest of the league realize how the Patriots are playing them for trade chumps? They’re LOADED with picks for the next draft, and no one is getting squat back.

  72. Jasonb says: Nov 1, 2010 3:38 PM

    Don’t forget teams with the worst records get first dibs on him.. with that said it’s hard to say how far he will go since he is a proven distraction for a team.

  73. Belichick for President says: Nov 1, 2010 3:38 PM

    31 teams know Moss wants to be in NE. Why put in the waiver claim for someone who doesn’t want to be there?

  74. Scotty Fargo says: Nov 1, 2010 3:38 PM

    Trade deadline has passed. The Vikings could not have received anything for Moss.
    Next question? Ask away people. My knowledge is free today only!

  75. SFWillis52 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:38 PM

    Moss is going to Carolina, everyone who thinks he will end up back on the Pats have no idea what they are talking about. Bills get first crack at him followed by Carolina. I don’t think the Bills bite since TO was a bust last year, but Carolina needs a WR, they need to win now, and they have a coach on the hot seat. Pats are the last team that get a chance to pick him up…it just wont happen

  76. jpyetman says: Nov 1, 2010 3:40 PM

    Buffalo Zero win
    Dallas one
    Carolina one
    SF two
    Denver two
    Cleveland two
    Cincy two
    Detroit two
    Arizona three
    SD three
    One of these teams are putting in a claim
    And if somehow they didn’t Miami and the Jets would put in claims to keep him from NE.
    Aka Dream on Pats fans

  77. Bom Trady says: Nov 1, 2010 3:40 PM

    Moss needs to clear waivers. 31 other teams must pass on his contract ($6.4 mil remaining) before Pats can pick up him up.

  78. Scotty Fargo says: Nov 1, 2010 3:40 PM

    The Vikings were a Super Bowl contending team last year without Moss. We have some injuries but you won’t here us whine and cry about them like Packers fans do.
    We could still get this season back on track, but my sources are saying the team is cashing in and getting ready for 2011. Damn shame to waste all this talent. Childress is 100% to blame here.

  79. footballfan says: Nov 1, 2010 3:41 PM

    What a worthless franchise! The truly sad thing is the Vikings fans tried to stick up for all these stupid decisions. Vikings take the crap that good franchises do not want anymore. They need a new GM, Coach, and Quarterback. Good news though Favres streak is still going strong, even it hurs the team. Oh wait he is the team so it does not matter!

  80. redscare says: Nov 1, 2010 3:41 PM

    The Vikings’ high-level decisions have been a huge mess this year. But the indications we’re getting lately to how they’re responding – Childress and his less-than-sympathetic statements about Favre, this speedy waiving – show hope that the organization is starting to see the error of their hail-mary, pie-in-the-sky ways.
    They’ve got a lot of good pieces in place that should still be there for at least a few more years. They screwed up in not taking the best young QB they could get in the draft, but they can fix that next time. The NFC is up for grabs and probably will be for years to come.
    They don’t need to be desperate. They’re in pretty good shape. If they start making some disciplined, smart choices now, they can be contenders for years to come.

  81. grendel says: Nov 1, 2010 3:41 PM

    Cleveland should pick him up so he can face the Jets for a 3rd time this year on the 14th.

  82. Hauschild says: Nov 1, 2010 3:43 PM

    WOW – poor Brett, his 20 million aside, of course.
    Hey, I don’t have a problem releasing Moss as much as I have with piss-poor play calling.
    Too bad – the Vikings have absolutely no chance of making the playoffs now, and the games are going to be more boring than they already are, as they’ll just run the ball and throw 8 yard passes to Shanc, and whatever Harvin can do. Berrian’s as worthless as a rubber crutch – why haven’t they cut him???
    To bad Favre couldn’t have returned to a team that had a proper coaching staff. Minny’s front office is solid, but Childress is too rigid and by-the-book to win a Super Bowl.

  83. Allied Biscuit says: Nov 1, 2010 3:43 PM

    bernard berrian is still on the team?
    Percy Harvin is hurt.
    Sidney Rice is not coming back.
    Yeah. this makes sense!
    Take away the only piece of the team that is holding out hope for the fan base. He is the only reason the metrodome is not empty. It will be now. or it will be filled with fans screaming at Childress.

  84. Stillerz says: Nov 1, 2010 3:44 PM

    He doenst go to the waiver wire he is a vested veteran and is now a free agent. Jesus people get your NFL knowledge up

  85. tougie says: Nov 1, 2010 3:44 PM

    This Vikings team is far more entertaining off the field than on. This may be hard to believe, but as a Packers fan I’m embarrassed for Minnesota.

  86. oxycode30 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:44 PM

    I’d love to see him in a Bears uniform. He’d be an amazing upgrade and target for Cutler provided he isn’t a cancer in the locker room.

  87. Dave M says: Nov 1, 2010 3:44 PM

    What a joke….the Vikes bring in Moss to open up the field for Harvin and Peterson. Now, with him gone and Rice still nowhere near ready to return, teams will double-team Harvin.
    With Harvin double-teamed, Favre, or Jackson or whoever is QB next week won’t have anbody whose a threat to throw to. This will be comical!
    Can you say 5-11?

  88. Los_Raiders says: Nov 1, 2010 3:44 PM

    Very slim chance he makes it to the Pats…
    Bills, Rams, Panthers, Redskins, Chargers, Titans, Etc, Etc, Etc…
    Point is there’s 31 other teams that have a shot at him before the Pats…

  89. AttackPack213 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:44 PM

    Some of these comments are ridonkulous. You do realize that in order for Moss to choose the team he goes to he would have to clear waivers first. The Pats have the best record in the NFL so they are the very last team to have a crack at him during the waiver period. If everyone else in the league (San Diego? Chicago? Tennessee? Jacksonville? Carolina?) fails to place a claim on him during the waiver period the Pats could get him. If nobody claims him durign the waiver period he is then free to sign wherever he chooses. None of you really expect him to make it past all the teams that need WR help and end up with the Pats do you? Probably not, you just didn’t understand how it works.

  90. dietrich43 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:47 PM

    Somewhere in Boston, Belichek is laughing. Somewhere in Minneapolis, Rick Spielman is watching his job security crumble. I think that next year, Favre becomes the first GM/Player in league history! And he will require all the PR staff be buxom brunettes that are too dumb to save voicemails and pictures!

  91. richkotitte says: Nov 1, 2010 3:48 PM

    How about giving the kid Bradford a REAL WR to throw to? He’s playing great with Danny Partridge Amendola and a bunch of other no name receivers. Bradford could be the most accurate passer in the league already… They could actually make a real playoff push if they can keep Moss happy…just a theory..
    Greatest show on turf, the sequel???

  92. wrath4771 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:48 PM

    I think the move speaks volumes about what the team really thinks of Childress. It was obvious Farve didn’t respect him, but it took three weeks for Moss to have zero-respect for Childress as well.

  93. realitypolice says: Nov 1, 2010 3:48 PM

    He’ll be back in Foxboro by Wednesday. The whole discord thing was a ruse.
    Bellichik probably thought he would have to wait a couple more weeks until the Vikes were reeeeaaallly out of it, but he won’t be complaining.
    If I were a Vikes fan, I would be marching on team headquarters right now. A third round pick for a guy who stays on your team for three weeks?

  94. Pastabelly says: Nov 1, 2010 3:49 PM

    It is hard to feel bad for the Vikings or any team whose coach gets on a plane and flys out to Mississippi to beg Brett Favre to come out of retirement. If he clears waivers, the Vikings will be out $3.2 million on the rest of the contract and a 3rd round pick. It is hard to believe a team will claim him knowing that it will cost them $3.2M and he would have to learn their system.

  95. TheBigOldDog says: Nov 1, 2010 3:52 PM

    Wake up people. He just stood in front of a podium and said he’ll only play for one team. Anybody who puts in a claim would have to be out of their flipping minds. What you saw yesterday was unprecedented and if you think it was accidental on his part you’re as bright as Chilly.

  96. KnowItAll619 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:53 PM

    People keep blaming Randy Moss or branding him as a troubled receiver..why? For all the teams who passed him up in the draft, especially Jerry Jones, has all about cursed themselves into damnation forever. The league fined Moss for NOT talking to the media 25,000 dollars, and then Moss finally speaks to the media, and his “bizarre” interview is then a factor in his dismissal? So the league has all kind of Twitter rules prohibiting players from what they can, and can’t do, does anybody with a brain think, maybe Moss wasn’t speaking to the media because he knew he was pissed, and rather just use descretion and stay silent?? Oh MY!! What makes Moss a troubled guy? I have nothing but respect for any player who tells the NFL to shove all their rules elsewhere, free-speech is limited because you cannot crticize an obvious blown call, like the guy in Denver Hocculi, and the players take all this laying down because their motivation is money, and the league knows it. But they aren’t helped because the NFL knows it has one of the dumbest fan bases, with this kiddish attitude of shut up and play so my team is good this week attitude, which perpetuates this atomsphere, of out-spoken guys being troubled, not worth it, yet these robots who take it all laying down, are model citizens, these palyers are becoming whores just for a check, getting fined 1500 dollars if you hand a game ball to a fan? Insanity!!..yet they care so much about the “IMAGE” AND intergrity of the NFL yet fine a player for giving a fan a ball?? The problems in this league go way beyond Randy, and for all those who say he isn’t worth the trouble, just note the only other team to go undefeated a whole season, besides the 72 dolphins did it with Randy Moss..all else is peanuts.

  97. SSgtLMJ says: Nov 1, 2010 3:54 PM

    I don’t think the Pats will even pick him up if he is available.
    I think Indianapolis should take a shot. Manning to Moss would make for an interesting storyline.

  99. CaptainFantastik says: Nov 1, 2010 3:55 PM

    Oh man watching the Vikings implode has just been too much fun to watch this year. Won’t be a bit surprised to see Favre take his ball and go home over this. One can hope.

  100. Drew Brees' Face Smudge says: Nov 1, 2010 3:56 PM

    There are few people with a bigger ego than Moss. But AJ Smith is one of them. There is no chance he’ll be in San Diego. I know they could use a WR right now but AJ Smith wont do it. He doesnt want anyone bigger than himself destroying that team.
    Lovie is desperate right now. Chicago maybe?

  101. CaptainFantastik says: Nov 1, 2010 3:56 PM

  102. Wisconsin_Myself says: Nov 1, 2010 3:56 PM

    I think the vikes had enough of his alligator arms and lack of effort. The last straw was on the pass int call in which moss still could have easily caught the ball for a td, but instead gave up. The next play Favre got injured which would not have happened if Moss made the play.

  103. mwcarolina says: Nov 1, 2010 3:57 PM

    there are many teams who will look at picking him up, BUT will they get him??? i think Washington will look at him and so will Carolina, but i dont see them getting him on the team. i think Chicago could get him, but will he work out there??? i doubt it, Tennessee could try him, but i cant see them signing him either. Buffalo could, but it would likely be another Moss in Oakland type of move. I can’t see Bellichick getting Moss back and why would he want to?? this team is actually better without Moss and getting him would be a distraction. Moss needs to first, calm his attitude down and go to a team that he can help win with for years. the Redskins (if he tries hard) would work wonders with him, same with Carolina (then Smith gets heat off him), BUT Moss will have to quit acting like a diva and accept whatever deal he gets and accept not being the only guy, that’s the issue with some recievers in the NFL.

  104. PFTiswhatitis says: Nov 1, 2010 3:58 PM

    Any team that claims him also has to pay the reamining 6 million on his contract. If he falls thru waivers then the Vikes have to pick up that cost and he could end up anywhere. Watch as he falls thru waivers.

  105. mcl5000 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:58 PM

    As ridiculous as it would be, I’d bet Jerry Jones claims Randy.
    1) Randy’s “the one that got away”.
    2) Jerry needs to do something drastic, and soon.
    3) If he plays well in his first game as a Cowboy, it takes some of the heat off of Jerry for firing Wade Philips and Jason Garrett, because he would have just made a “smart decision”.
    Like I said, ridiculous, but I don’t think it’s at all far-fetched. I’m certain the money isn’t an issue.

  106. Kerg01 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:58 PM

    Randy Moss is now standing outside Belichick’s house holding a boom box over his head with ‘In Your Eyes’ playing on it.

  107. vikesfan024 says: Nov 1, 2010 3:59 PM

    So funny to read the idiot rube’s comments on here. Moss is a clown and got what he deserved. He has the audacity to call out the coaches after a game where he loafed the entire game and gave up on a ball he could have easily caught. My guess is the coaching staff saw enough on film of Randy dogging it on every play and that coupled with his trash talking of his own team after a game was enough to get the axe. Anyone that is a true Vikings fan, and sane, should notice that since the Wilf’s took over the team everything has improved including the talent on the roster. Let’s see…drafted two rookies of the year, improved their record each year, won two division titles and nearly made it to a super bowl. Wow, what a terrible organization. You morons should be lucky you aren’t Bills, Browns, Seahawks, Lions, Bears…should I keep going?….fans.
    When asked if Wade Philips is to blame for the Cowboys being awful, every ex-player and coach that has been on the radio or TV says NO….in the NFL you blame the players. The coach doesn’t play the game and any sane, rational fan out there should be able to see that Childress and Co’s game plans are not what are losing games this year. It’s poor execution by the players.

  108. CliveRush says: Nov 1, 2010 3:59 PM

    Randy needs to go somewhere quiet and rest.

  109. Pastabelly says: Nov 1, 2010 3:59 PM

    Any team putting in a claim for Moss would have to pay him $3.6 million and it’s only a one-year rental that non-playoff contenders will not pay. The next issue with playoff contenders is chemistry and Moss learning a new system. As for the Jets, it only works if they give up on Braylon Edwards and they would have to pay his salary too. It’s not far fetched that Moss clears waivers.

  110. Mike Rendahl says: Nov 1, 2010 4:00 PM

    Well the NFL got what they wanted, they fined Moss for not talking so he finally talked. This is exactly what the NFL want, endless drama. The NFL has become a circus, it’s not even football anymore, what a disgrace the game has become.

  114. HolyMoly says: Nov 1, 2010 4:01 PM

    For those of you who don’t understand:
    Here is why Moss was fired….
    A. Didn’t make any attempt to catch the ball that was thrown to him during the PI call. He would have scored a touchdown, which would have saved valuable time and would have spared Brett Favre from getting knocked out of the game.
    B. Basically trashing Brad Childress by saying how great Bill Belichick was – i.e. Bill is a great coach which means that Brad is not.
    He’s right about Brad, but with friends like these….
    Now having said all this, the Vikings have a total cakewalk of a schedule for the rest of the season so they could conceivably make the playoffs this season.

    I am a Vikings fan. I religiously root for a joke of a team. There, I said it. Have weathered all the “I told you so’s” of this season, but this takes it. Childress is a complete moron who blows games. Favre last year was brilliant, this year a disaster. I love Moss, but the entire move as a whole sucks…3rd rounder and then cut. Ridiculous. I’m sick of this crap. The worst part is we’re wasting the talent’s of a sure fire hall of fame RB, and studs like Harvin on this debacle of a season.

    You are correct except that it is more like $5million left on his contract that the Vikes would have to pay. The Pats (or any other team) could then pick him up for half the veteran minimum.
    AND yes it is hard to feel bad for a team whose coach gets on a plane and flys out to Mississippi to beg Brett Favre to come out of retirement.

  119. 8man says: Nov 1, 2010 4:02 PM

    If he was waived in the off season, Moss would have the ability to negotiate when any team of his choosing.
    But since the waiver occurred during the season, he must wait until all teams waive their rights to him. If more than one team submits a claim, the team with the worst record is awarded priority.
    From what I’ve read, during early July to December the waiver period is only 24 hours. So there is a really good chance that by this time tomorrow, we will all know his next team.

  120. Bwa Ha Ha says: Nov 1, 2010 4:02 PM

    Randy Moss has been my favorite football player since his last year in Marshall and I would love to see him play on my team. I dont care about all the lil dramas that have went on with Moss through out his career he has never done anything horrible or malicous hes just a little immature.
    Ever since he decided to take less money then the Eagles offered him to play for the Patriots I have wanted him to come to Philly. I know the Eagles dont need a wr but adding a player of his caliber couldnt hurt. Its not like they would have to give up anything to get him. Its pretty much just free talent except for the money of course. Which shouldnt be a problem bc the Eagles have 1 of the lowest team salarys.
    With Deseans concussion and his a Maclins smaller size it would be nice to have another wr who could step in if 1 went down. And if all 3 of them were healthy it could be great.
    I doubt he will make it past waivers and even if he did I doubt the Eagles would sign him. But I can dream.

Its a no brainer, Do it for the beast!!!!!!, Randy will be the peice to our puzzle we desperately need to open up that red zone. Bess would be Blowing it up like welker, The beast will tear up the nfl like has has already and randy would be just thrilled to help get another Ring!!! Hes like TO, hate him if you want to, but try to argue with the tape and film. So do we drop the ball here or do we tell our dolfans.

    Fire Childress now!!! He had one of the premier WRs in the game and he doesn’t exploit that?

    I just got off the phone with my inside source. Moss had some words to say to Childress and he didn’t like it. Childress has completely lost the lockerroom and many players are questioning his decisions. Favre may call it quits next. My source says that Peterson and Allen are also fed up and will seek a trade next year if Childress is back.
    According to my source, it’s basically all the players vs. Childress here. Heads will be rolling, so stay tuned for more.
    I’ll keep you all in the loop as I hear more.

    RealityPolice got it right on above. So I won’t repeat it. What I will say is the Vikings coach should be fired for losing this Super Bowl caliber team in the summer. He should have built his team around T.Jackson with Sage Rosenfels in relief this year. Why? Because T. Jackson is much better right now than Brett Favre is at his 41 year old best. It was the coaching staff and GM who wrecked that team. Not Randy Moss! If Moss clears waivers (which I doubt), he’ll end right back in Patriotland where he belongs for their championship run. But now he will truly have an axe to grind. He is humble and appreciative of just how good he had it in the first place. He’ll be fine being a special package player in Brady’s massive arsenal of receivers. And the Pats will be much better for it! What do you all think he was whistling in Kraft’s ear before the game and Belichick’s afterwards. Tiddlywinks!
    Let me see. The Patriots will end up with Moss, Branch in 2010, and Minnesota’s third round pick in 2011. The VIkings will end up with the Patriot’s 7th round pick in 2011; a Pee Ohed T. Jackson, a broken up Brett Favre and team along with a clueless “Chilly” and sorrowful GM. What a bunch of bunglers! Ziggy Wolf?! Give me or any other poster on this board the money! We can do much better than those 2 bozo’s with your money and I for one haven’t spent one day in a NFL job.

  143. thirdandgoal says: Nov 1, 2010 4:18 PM

    I actually think this may have saved the season for Minn. Too many headaches already. Moss was on the verge of imploding. Nice experiment, just didn’t work out.

  144. antalicus says: Nov 1, 2010 4:19 PM

    This is ridiculous… They might as well wrap this year up and just use it to train their rookies. Put Joe Webb in the rest of the year because he is where it is at. Get rid of Chil and make Leslie Frazier head coach or Rob Ryan.

    The bills should have better success with Moss than they did with TO. It wasn’t TO’s fault, we have an awful o-line and our qb was not good. The o-line is slowly getting a bit better though they are still awful, the difference is with edwards gone we have fitzpatrick that potentially could get the ball to moss….I really can’t see the bills going after him though…seems like a lot of $ to pay a guy to play half a season which is already over at 0-7 as i doubt they would make any move to sign him past the end of the season….

  150. Pastabelly says: Nov 1, 2010 4:25 PM

    It’s not $5 million. Moss’ base is $6.4 million. The Vikings are liable only for the unpaid 2010 salary or 9/16 games. It’s about $3.6 million. That gets you nine games of Randy Moss. Non contenders aren’t going to pay it. Ideally, it would be a team that runs an offense similar to New England’s that needs a wide receiver. Maybe a team will feel like spending that kind of money to block New England from getting him. The Colts, with all of their injuries, would be the most intriguing team. It just seems out of character for them.
    PFTiswhatitis says:
    November 1, 2010 4:02 PM
    You are correct except that it is more like $5million left on his contract that the Vikes would have to pay. The Pats (or any other team) could then pick him up for half the veteran minimum.
    AND yes it is hard to feel bad for a team whose coach gets on a plane and flys out to Mississippi to beg Brett Favre to come out of retirement.

  151. nstarqb says: Nov 1, 2010 4:25 PM

    Viks are sittin 2 – 5 with 3 tough games left on the schedule. Pack, Eagles, Giants. If they can find a way to win a close game they are still in the hunt. 10 – 6 gets you in the dance. The margin of error is gone. Time to man up and show some fight. Everygame counts from here on out.

  152. bruinscup says: Nov 1, 2010 4:25 PM

    Best of luck in your second career, Childress.

  153. georgeanderson says: Nov 1, 2010 4:28 PM

    Hopefully he goes to a team that can use him. Randy Moss is still Randy Moss. Would love to see him be a piece of a team that can contend for playoffs,and where he doesn’t need to be the “man”. He is not the old Randy from Ran U, but he can still make plays.
    Why not Pittsburgh? He is a WV boy, and Pittsburgh is really just a city located in the wrong state, it should be the capital of WV.

  154. Philly99 says: Nov 1, 2010 4:28 PM

  155. tom coughlin's coat holder says: Nov 1, 2010 4:29 PM

    at this time of year,what team has 3.2 mil to throw around for a player?
    why would a team spend that kind of money for a player who will only be there for 8 or 9 more games?
    i really thought he would go back to new england next year,but this could possibily move up the time table.the patriots are a financially astute team,i can see them getting this done.
    the patriots are heading into a new rebirth with all their coming draft picks,moss could be the icing on the cake.

  156. DaBeast says: Nov 1, 2010 4:29 PM

    After reconsideration of what I said earlier. I don’t think Moss will ever make it back to Patriot land. A guy with his talent level will never make it through waivers past the Washington Redskins, NY Giants, Atlanta Falcons or even New Orlean Saints. Any of those potential Super Bowl teams will jump on Moss as their “missing piece” if he gets that far down. A rebuilding or losing team won’t touch him. Because they will know he doesn’t want to be there. Washington would be the “PERFECT” fit. Both Shanahan and McNabb desperately need him. Especially with a bye week to work him in the rotation.

  158. brian91388 says: Nov 1, 2010 4:32 PM

    Some people in here are delusional. If you are a fan of any team besides the Patriots, you shouldn’t want him on your team. He doesn’t want to go play for a bum QB. If he went to the Dolphins, Steelers, Colts, Jets, or Packers (just to name random examples), he would have the same press conference after playing the Patriots.
    Moss never wanted to leave the Patriots, he just talks a lot and never thought the Patriots would really deal him. Now he desperately wants to come back and knows it is a real possibility. Moss would look at any team who claims him as the team that blocked him from going back home. You Dolphins fans really think he would be happy going to the 3rd place Dolphins and playing with Henne when he could join the team with the best record and QB in sports? Cmon…You know Randy would tank it.

  159. only1stew078 says: Nov 1, 2010 4:34 PM

    No matter how you feel about his post game rant, you don’t give up a 3rd round pick for a player who plays only 3 games. What a bone head move by Brad!! Percy look great with Moss taken the heat off him. You do this to Moss, but let Favre perfomance on the field go with no action?? Yes Moss could of done better after the game with his recation, but in the end the Vikes got the worse of the trade and thier season is trash now…….you can take that to the bank.

  160. I hate Ted Thompson says: Nov 1, 2010 4:35 PM

    The 3rd to last straw – as someone who was at Lambeau Field on Oct. 24, Moss ran FULL OUT on about 1/3 of the pass patterns, and even then my guess is because he thought he thought he was going to get that particular pass, or he wouldn’t have at all. Thankfully he didn’t put much effort to jump on that last pass of the Packers-Vikings game, as I think just a bit of effort and he gets it. By the way, as a lifelong Packers fan – thanks for that Randy !!!
    Next to last straw – not even trying on that P.I. call in the 4th quarter. He even reaches his arms out he catches it, it’s a TD, and possibly a different game at the end.
    The LAST STRAW – the verbal BJ he gave to Belicheck, Brady, and the Patriots at Moss’s post-game presser last night.
    Game. Set. Match.

    WTF are you talking about? I’ve never heard of Moss linked to anything remotely illegal. At most, he doesn’t filter what he says. I’ve been listening to what Jay Glazer has been saying, and according to him, the players are not at all happy. Childress has either lost the locker room, or is losing it more and more each day.

  166. pvaz869 says: Nov 1, 2010 4:40 PM

    Vikes the “laughing stock of the league??” Hold on. The Vikes are largely the same team as last year. They gambled on Moss and they lost. He goes away. Still doesn’t make them any less talented than they were when they made the trade for him.
    I’m not a Vike’s fan. But I don’t think it’s time for them to sound the “sky is falling” alarms. They can still contend.

  175. Hauschild says: Nov 1, 2010 4:57 PM

    It would be funny to watch nobody claim Moss, and then everybody expecting BilliCheat to sign him, but he probably wants nothing to do with him at this point.
    At least the Vikings were ballsy enough to make a move to improve their club, and then quickly make a decision to release Moss when they found out he’s not into football any longer.
    The strange thing about this is all the talking heads especially yesterday that showed how far back the safeties were playing because of Moss. If this were true, has he really lost his skills? If the team that got rid of Moss had their safety that deep, then why??? Harvin??

  176. tombrookshire says: Nov 1, 2010 4:57 PM

    Besides Moss, there is no one on thinner ice than Childress. I wouldn’t think the decision was his to make. Bret Favre’s performance last season is the only reason Childress isn’t sweeping up after Vikings games rather than coaching them.

  177. Ambrose says: Nov 1, 2010 4:59 PM

    It’s funny how the Viking fan bandwagon jumpers are now all saying Moss wasn’t a good fit and that Favre should sit down. Huh. Three weeks ago you couldn’t get any of them to shut up about how wonderful everything was and how pathetic (the division-leading) Packers were. Payback is a bitch.

    November 1, 2010 3:44 PM
    Some of these comments are ridonkulous. You do realize that in order for Moss to choose the team he goes to he would have to clear waivers first. The Pats have the best record in the NFL so they are the very last team to have a crack at him during the waiver period. If everyone else in the league (San Diego? Chicago? Tennessee? Jacksonville? Carolina?) fails to place a claim on him during the waiver period the Pats could get him. If nobody claims him durign the waiver period he is then free to sign wherever he chooses. None of you really expect him to make it past all the teams that need WR help and end up with the Pats do you? Probably not, you just didn’t understand how it works.
    NO, actually we all realize that, we are just smarter than you are. Yes, we DO believe he passes all of those teams. Why? Well, let’s look at your short list…
    SD-Already happy with Floyd and Nannee, and V-Jax will be back in two games, already giving them a shot in the arm.
    Chicago? The most important thing to Martz is that the receivers know his offense inside and out. Moss doesn’t. Remember he started Furrey in Detroit, who was a DB, but knew his offense?
    TN-They love their young WR core, and have a good record. Their receivers are already catching bombs. Why bring in a cancer?
    J-ville and Carolina-They know Moss has no interest. Add STL, CLE, MIN, OAK, SF
    Let’s cover a few more
    Presumably happy w their wides (I’d be)
    NYG, GB, DET, PHIL
    DAL, NO, ARI, PITT, CIN, BLT, IND, HOU, NYJ, MIA, BUFF, KC, DN, SEA
    That covers everyone except the Pats, no?

  181. Scotty Fargo says: Nov 1, 2010 5:12 PM

I’m betting this move to get Moss was completely orchestrated by Favre begging Childo and it’s gone completely sour. Look for favre to be the next team casualty. (I personally would love to see Chilly man up and tell Favre that he’s done too….)

    Wow, you’re really setting the bar high. That’s like saying Randy Moss isn’t any worse than Carl Pickens. Congrats on that. If they ever give out trophies for 4th place in the division, you guys’ll be in line for it.
    Having said that, what’s more stunning to me than the Randy Moss/Brett Favre/Brad Childress circus is the utter collapse of the Vikings’ pass rush. They were the #1 team in sacks last season. Now they’re tied for dead last.
    Let me put that into perspective… Clay Matthews has 2.5 more sacks than the Minnesota Vikings. And he missed a game with an injury. What happened? Williams, Williams, Allen and Edwards are all healthy, right?

  187. Sterling says: Nov 1, 2010 5:45 PM

    We all get why Randy was fired. But still. You don’t give up a draft pick for a dude and then make no attempt to get something for him. Just not smart. The Pats fired Moss, too, but they made sure they got something for him.
    But while we’re at it, can we waive Bernard Berrian, too? ‘Cause that guy hasn’t done a thing all year, except drop balls.

    Seriously – this bar that I watch the Packer games at out here in CA has a local guy (49er fan) who will talk your ear off on anything and everything that is related to trades, rumors, etc. He’s in like 5 different fantasy leagues and he thinks he’s got the inside scoop on every player, every story, every week. He thinks he knows the rule book inside-out and he spends at least 10 minutes on each reviewed call telling you why the refs either got it right or got it wrong. He tries to pass off random knowledge as proof that he knows more about your favorite team than you do. He bounces around the bar all day long, hovering near anyone foolish enough to get sucked into any kind of a conversation with him.

    Take charge of your house?? After giving the keys to a homeless guy, right? And FWIW, although it would make me laugh uncontrollably, I don’t see Randy going back to New England. Belichick doesn’t run a joke of an organization like Childress does. It’d go down as the greatest trade in the history of trades if Belichick rented Randy for 4 weeks at the price of a third round pick, though.
    Seriously, though. Nice try at spinning this as a valiant effort to “take charge” of their house. If they want to take charge of their house they’ll sit Favre and play Jackson. No, he won’t be much better. But he WILL be better. And it would send a message to the team.

  200. lean6 says: Nov 1, 2010 7:00 PM

    We have no reason to believe the story is not true, but PFT can report via a league source that Moss is not yet aware that he’s been released.
    The Vikings seem like a pretty classless organization. Childress is just another of many subpar coaches desperately looking season-to-season for a scapegoat for each losing season.

    Wow – I love me some Minnesota-bashing, but really, guys, your team makes it too easy.
    How does it feel to basically give away a third-round pick for a month of almost no production? Got any more draft picks you want to get rid of? You guys just got pantsed by the Patriots.
    That’s all right, even if you kept that third rounder, you’d probably be late turning it in on draft day anyway.
    Man, the Vikings’ implosion is fun to watch. I knew the Favre acquisition would end badly, but I never dared to dream it would be this spectacular.

  206. Crigs says: Nov 1, 2010 7:28 PM

    I absolutely love the Vikings fans saying Moss is a cancer and the Pats can have him back. It’s funny cause you’re the same idiots who guaranteed a Super Bowl and guaranteed a win over the Packers after the Vikings traded for him. Sucks to be a Vikings fan right now hahahahaha.

    My oh my what a mess.
    Looks pretty bad.
    To be honest, I don’t want it to get so bad that the Vikings end up leaving Minnesota. I’m used to playing Minnesota twice a year and that close geographic rivalry is a good thing. It’s been fun over the decades ….. except for the consecutive years that we could never seem to catch up with Fran Tarkenton.
    I wonder if Clay M. could have caught Fran Tarkenton. ???
    Peace,

    The Vikings are the Packers biggest rivalry and you can see it from their fans from these sorts of shenanigans.

    Never. That would make holidays with my wife’s side of the family (who are all Packer fans) extremely boring. I’m still a Vikes fan, make no mistake, I’m just longing for a day where I have a team that I can see more news regarding football, and less about the drama surrounding it all.
    If, in the end, the Vikings move, I will become a Lions fan.

  217. Jeff Harper says: Nov 1, 2010 10:19 PM

    Scotty Fargo the Vikings have only been in existance for 50 years. The Packers biggest rival are the Chicago Bears. The only reason their is a rivalry between the Vikings and Packers is Favre. Please study your league history before you make a comment like that.

  220. shaggytoodle says: Nov 1, 2010 11:15 PM

    Look on the bright side Minnesota, maybe you can get your QB of the future with that top 10 draft pick you will have next year. Its a shame you guys love trading all your picks cuz you sure look like you could use A LOT of help.

  221. shaggytoodle says: Nov 2, 2010 12:24 AM

    Let that be a lesson to EVERYONE on the Vikings, ONLY Favre can be bigger than the team. He gets rides from the airport, shows up halfway through preseason and he also has a guy ride a cart with him to hold a tissue on his chin.

  222. granadafan says: Nov 2, 2010 12:28 AM

    Loving this implosion by the Vikes. They became the #1 most hated team after they sold their soul and dignity to kowtow to Lord Farve.

  223. nitschkesghost@1265 says: Nov 2, 2010 1:45 AM

    Ha Ha the Vikings ship a Third round pick to New England for cancerous time bomb. Then realise him. This is some serious carma coming home to a perenial bunch of losers. Time to start poking eye holes in your grocery bags Vikings fans. It is official, you completely suck.

    2 reasons:
    1) Not that much off-field drama going on in Chicago the last few years.
    2) Packers fans generally dislike the Bears, but they respect the organization. Not so for the vikings.

  228. acs3 says: Nov 2, 2010 5:33 PM

    …and it’s because the Vikings are an absolute car wreck right now.
    From your boyfriend under center, to the brilliant Randy Moss excursion, to Childress’ inability to control his team, to their failure to sell out their stadium in a large metro area without corporate assistance, to their inability to get the funding for a new stadium, to Favre’s boudoir shots, to the pass rush’s fall from grace, etc, etc.
    It’s high comedy. Trust me, if the Bears were falling apart like this there would be plenty of Packers fans yukking it up. Maybe not as many, but plenty. And I imagine a fair amount of Vikings “fans” like yourself too.

    Not much off field drama in Chicago? Really? They just traded their entire future for Cutler under 2 years ago. Lovie and Angelo are permanently on the hot seat. A hot start followed by a huge meltdown this year? Come on man, there’s plenty there. You’d rather just focus your scorn on the team that has the one who got away, and had more success last year with him than GB can expect in the next 20 years. The denial is just sad, the Vikes are now 2-5, and you are more concerned with what they’re doing than your own division leading team.

    Spin it any way you want.. The Vikings got what they deserved from both Favre and Moss. And as long as the Vikings are the ones wallowing at the bottom of the division, Lovie’s seat is not as hot as it could be.
    And why exactly do you think the Packers will not reach the NFC championship for the next 20 years? Please offer any support your crystal ball can offer, douch.

    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.”
    ———-
    Oh, what a difference 4 weeks make. Majik, you ought to print the above comment, frame it and hang it in your house. This is possibly the stupidest thing you’ve ever typed. And it goes without saying that that means something.
    Hey, be sure to let us know when you get those 4-5 years of “great football” from Randy Moss. You didn’t get 4-5 games of great football. Not even 4-5 quarters worth.

    The trade for Cutler was notable but it’s not even close to the long-term pattern of head-scratching decisions made by the vikings.
    There is no “scorn” to focus. It’s finger pointing and laughing.
    The one that got away? No. The one we disposed of at just the right time.
