One day after the strangest off-field Randy Moss story in a season full of them, we’re reminded how inconsequential Moss has become on the gridiron.
Titans ffensive coordinator Mike Heimdinger strongly indicated this week that Moss and Kenny Britt wouldn’t be on the field much at the same time. That means Moss will likely be watching much of Sunday’s game against Houston on the bench.
“Randy’s really smart, but he’s also on his third [team] this year,” Heimerdinger said via the Tennessean. “Flipping him to the other side would be a stretch. We’ve tried that with Kenny, and the more we extend Kenny, the worse he plays. As long as we can keep Kenny somewhere and say, ‘Hey, go do this real fast, real hard,’ we’re in better shape.”
It goes without saying that teams find ways to get great players on the field. The Titans don’t seem to think Moss is great anymore and his stats this season would support that. (He has 375 receiving yards overall, and only 62 in Tennessee.)
Moss seems fine with the arrangement.
“I don’t have a problem with moving out of the way and making room for Kenny,” Moss said according to TitansInsider.com. “This is his team, it’s not mine. I’m just here to be a part of it.”
Moss lauded Britt’s work ethic, saying the youngster could make a name for himself. The 14-year veteran was asked if Britt could one day be another Randy Moss.
“There’s only one Moss,” he replied.
No matter what you think of him, there is no arguing that.
