As we continue to get over the shock of Minnesota’s dismissal of Randy Moss, it’s not surprising that stories are starting to come out painting Moss’ behavior as unacceptable.
First, there was Moss’ lack of cool in the lunch line. (Who doesn’t like chicken and ribs?)
Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune also reports that it was Moss that informed Vikings coach Brad Childress that he’d stay in New England for a few extra days. (Childress previously said Moss had permission, but the coach apparently didn’t have a choice.)
Spending some extra time at your old home on a Monday or Tuesday, especially so close after a trade, is a fairly common practice in the NFL. But it likely furthered Childress’ feeling that Moss was someone he could not control.
Of course, Childress should have known that before he gave up a third-round pick for him. As Florio mentioned last night, Moss shouldn’t be the only one to lose his job after this mess.
