I get the feeling I am alone on this, but I really don't think Randy moss would be any good for this team. I know the upside,and I can see the appeal, but I think there are a few things to consider before joining the rally.
This guy has been a serious problem everywhere he has been, with the exception of his first two years in New England, playing for one of the most widely respected coaches in league history. Belicik, who we may all dislike because of our allegiances, has taken in malcontents various times throughout his career, usually with great success in controlling their poor attitudes, while taking advantage of every last drop of talent they possess. But even he could not handle Moss' antics anymore, and actually decided, in the middle of a particularly tough division race, to get rid of him. Minnesota, after four games, cut bait despite having given up a reasonably high draft pick just four weeks earlier. What does that say to you?
This guy is famous for his talent and his ability to score TD's. Yannow what else he is famous for? Taking plays, and entire games, off. I love Vontae Davis, and I take nothing away from how he has played this season. However, most analysts agree that Moss simply put no effort forth after the first quarter of that Monday night game. Thats a prime-time national game. Against a division rival no less. How about the years he spent in Oakland? Can you even remember a single play he made out there? Yeah, me neither.
Now lets look at it with the Dolphins in mind, specifically. Many of you have questioned chad Henne's leadership and confidence. Do you honestly think a guy like Moss helps him in ANY way? How about Marshall? He was brought here, and payed alot of money, in the hopes that he has straightened his life out and can be a big contributor. So far, he has not only behaved like a professional, but he has actually shown signs of leadership, even if the offensive production has been merely good, and not yet great. Despite his off the field issues in Denver, he has NEVER been accused of taking plays off. In fact, he is one of the best run blocking WR's in the game. I don't want Randy Moss within a mile of him either.
And the argument that he will "behave" for the rest of the season because he is playing for a new contract? How well did that work for Minnesota? Cause I heard that same reasoning applied when I heard how huge he would be for the Vikings. And everyone knows damn well that Miami wouldn't be signing him long-term anyway, with the money we already have invested in the last year. So he won't be any more motivated here than he was anywhere else.
I believe in this team. I see the cracks, but I also believe they can be addressed without making a deal with the devil.
