Around the Horn Sends Moss to the Packers

Today's session of the talking heads on ESPN's "Around the Horn" addressed the talk of Randy Moss leaving Oakland for either the Packers or one of the other few teams seemingly interested in him at this time, New England. All said it made sense, with 3 out of the 4 saying he'd be in Green Bay at the start of this coming season. The lone dissenter, Jay Mariotti of the Chicago Sun-Times, said Oakland would want a #1 pick in exchange for him, which no team would be willing to do.

Comments by the other pundits noted that Moss and Packers QB Brett Favre share the same agent, Bus Cook, which might help facilitate a deal. Tim Cowlishaw of the The Dallas Morning News said if Moss would play at his best for anyone it would be for Brett Favre. Others thought that a team that wanted to make a one-year run at the playoffs and a Super Bowl might well want to add Moss to the roster...and again, they pointed to Green Bay -- with it being possibly Brett's last year -- as being as good a candidate as any to make this happen.

While Moss is...well, is an interesting thought: using four-wideout sets with Donald Driver, Randy Moss, Greg Jennings and Koren Robinson being thrown to by Brett Favre. Would defensive coordinators have some restless nights thinking of how to defend that foursome? Oh yeah.

It's a wacky world out there. Let's just hope the Moss of "moon" infamy might find a more appropriate way to celebrate in the endzone should he in fact join the Pack for the upcoming season. Stay tuned.


Today's edition of ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" also addressed the Moss story reported in today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (see earlier post of today), and again the consensus was that Green Bay and New England were the best possibilities for Moss in the coming season.
