    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    Picking up moss doesn't seem to be dangerous.

    1) We have very low standards at WR. If he caught only 450yrds and drew double teams he'd be worth it. We have zero vertical threats.
    2) Moss has behaved well enough. Besides, Moss's antics wont persuade anybody to go against Spags who has been so good to them. The team leaders wont allow it. I'd put money on it.
    3) We are literally running out of bodies at WR. I dnt think money is an issue if we can actually get somebody who can present a threat.
    4) The upside is ENORMOUS!!!! Theoretically Moss could stretch the field, open up running lanes for SJAX, draw double coverage, make Bradford look good, make the big play when needed, teach our young wr's, give our team some swagger, or at the very least be as good as amendola or gibson.

    All optimism aside, I think realistically Bradford and Moss will be a productive duo. One more WR injury and our team could experience a serious setback.

    Re: Randy Moss is available...

    Moss lost his job in New England due to conflicts with Bellicheat, who made an example out of him that he wouldn't tolerate a player talking smack about the Patsies to the media, and that his team is bigger than one player. Brady, just today on his radio show, was talking about what good friends him and Moss were and how they often shared deep personal stories with each other about their lives to each other, and that him being on another team didn't change their friendship. Either he's a giant liar, or there is no rift there.

    Chlidress obviously has security issues in Minnesota, so when Moss last night talked about how much he missed the Patsies, he decided to show him the door. Moss was brought in to help win a championship this year, the same reason Favre was brought back. Now that the Vikings are sitting at a 2-5 record, with a championship or even a playoff run out of the question, in Clidress's eyes he becam expendable. Especially after Moss' post game interview yesterday. He feels his job is in danger and did something drastic to try and shake things up and save it. The story coming out of the Vikings organization today was that no one knew exactly why Childress waived him, and many players were upset when he told them in their team meeting. If he was such a problem, why were they upset?

    My issue with him has nothing to do with being a "cancer" or locker room issues, but with his tendency to take plays, or sometimes even whole games off. But like C-Mob pointed out I think he'd relish the "saviour" role when he instantly became the #1 target on the Rams. I say bring him in and see how it goes. The Rams making the playoffs this year would be a HUGE boost to the organization and fan base, and Moss can help make it happen.

    I say we take him too. We wouldn't be to upset if signed to a 2 year deal. I still don't think avery or Clayton are #1's. Then can draft a #1 and groom him.

    Re: Randy Moss is available...

    Im torn on the issue. I very much want to compete for the NFC West title this year and I think we are 1 or 2 playmakers from seriously pressing the issue.

    At the same time, Moss has a big mouth. I would be pissed too (speaking of Childress); Moss basically said that Childress wasn't acting on his gameplan advice. So the f*ck what! Shut the hell up and catch the ball.

    I read the linked blog, and in the end, I agree with it. It is a low risk deal that could have outstanding upside. If he doesn't mesh well, he can ride the bench or be made inactive. If he has some interest in coming to Saint Louis and helping us get to the playoffs (and he would be a frequent target), then lets do it. Most importantly, he needs to be receptive to the opporntunity.

    Re: Randy Moss is available...

    ^ Moss isn't the only player in Minnesota to disagree with the way Childress is running things.

    I'm torn like most of you. Is Moss a headcase, a guy who doesn't always give 100%, past his prime and does he take plays off? Yes, but he's widely loved by his teammates, still more talented than any receiver the Rams have and would instantly make us playoff contenders.

    It's clearly a risk but it's a risk worth taking imo.

    Re: Randy Moss is available...

    Add another Rams fan who is torn on the subject. Normally I would say no... but now we actually have a REAL CHANCE TO WIN THE DIVISION. Adding Moss to that equation should instantly make the offense better, and if nothing else would help draw the defensive focus away from Steven Jackson.

    Right now I would probably be 60% for and 40% against... with the percentage easily shifting based on why he was waived by Minnesota. I would make him an offer, but only for the rest of the season.

    I think we have such a great opportunity that we almost have to take this risk.

    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    I agree with the Optimistic Lamb, we are running out of WRs. Donnie, then Clayton, then Curry, and Alexander to an extent. Again I think he could be quite helpful and I believe he and Spags could coexist. However, do I think the FO will pull the trigger? Probably not.

    On a side not, I LOLed at the thought of Batman, Robin, + Moss

    If Moss acts out or does anything that the team doesn't like we can waive him and let another team pick him up. We don't lose anything except his pro-rated contract. There's so much he can offer the team if it pans out well, and its really easy to cut ties with him. Might as well take a chance.

    Re: Randy Moss is available...

    Just want to throw this out there because it seems like a big reason people don't want Randy is because of his work ethic/ drive to play the game.

    ESPN loves to keep showing the pass interference play where he "doesn't go for the ball". I love how people think he has eyes in the back of his head. The man was tripped, falling off balance, trying to draw attention to the refs to throw the flag, and by the time he could locate the ball and reach out for it, it had already hit the ground. The guy was INTERFERED, they got the ball on the 8 yard line because of him! I just can't fathom how or why people are taking a positive play from Moss and construing it to show how he "wasn't playing hard". Ask Merriweather if he was playing hard as he blew past him.

    Another thing, at times, guys with Moss' physical activity appear like they aren't trying. Their full speed is effortless and smooth, giving off a nonchalant and carefree demeanor. The guy doesn't have to grunt or stress or jerk to beat safeties deep.

    But hey, sure Randy has packed it in in the past. See the Oakland debacle. And if this team drops four straight, expect Randy to stop running hard down the field twenty times a game. However if it comes to that expect us to waive him, no big deal. However, if Moss smells blood, he is still one of the most dangerous deep threat in the league.

    My biggest concern now is that he won't fall to us.

    I honestly think it's a no brainier that we go get Moss.
    I dislike the guy and think he is an absolute thorn in the side of any locker room. Having said that, I believe Spags is truly a guy who can curb that kind of attitude. If we do have him I agree completely that he would take at least two defenders off Jackson and give room for the other WR. Plus he can be the deep threat everyone on this board has been dreaming of.

    I say its up to Spags if he can control him.

    Re: Vikings waived Moss - Should the Rams be interested?

    Favre was playing with a few broken bones in his foot while Moss dogged it on several routes. Seems pretty clear why Childress had seen enough. Knee-jerk reaction? Maybe, but a team fighting for it's life can't have players picking and choosing when they want to give effort and be a part of the team.

    Re: Randy Moss is available...

    For those who are under the delusion that Moss is some kind of 'cancer' or 'locker room problem'...you are dead wrong. Moss was run out of Minny by Childress and Childress alone. The players are STUNNED...to a man. The owner (Zygi Wilf) is extremely PO'd too. Wilf played a personal role in bringing Moss to Minnesota and was not consulted prior to his release. Look for Childress to be GONE in the very near future. He was already being challenged by Favre about his play calling and decision making in terms of the offense. Moss was rapidly becoming another voice of dissension and he dumped him. The Vikings offense has become a joke. They are the most predictable/safe/vanilla playcalling team in the league...period.

    Mort and Schefter just announced at half time of MNF that they both have the RAMS at the top of the list of teams who look to be the next stop for Moss.
