Randy Moss Retires


Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that Randy Moss has decided to retire according to his agent, Joel Segal.

Randy Moss is 2nd all time in reception touchdowns with 153, 8th in receptions(954) and 5th in yards(14,858).

As a tribute to Randy Moss here is some highlights and my favorite Moss video:

    I expect he’ll sign with someone after the season gets rolling.

    If only he didn’t have such personality issues. His talent and a Jerry Rice character would have made him the greatest of all time. Thanks for the memories on the field, Randy. I’ll always remember you. Good luck in the real world now.

    Sonofagun, the highlights are blocked in my country. What slander!

  4. Norseman66 says:

    There’s plenty of film out there of Moss quitting on his routes also. Moss should never be mentioned in the same sentence as Jerry Rice.

    • Tomb... says:

      Ironically, you mentioned Moss and Rice in the same sentence meant to dissuade people from doing so.

    • Brett says:

      Norseman meant to say:

      There’s plenty of film out there of Moss quitting on his routes also. Moss should never be mentioned in the same sentence as a particular very talented, record breaking receiver. That receiver being Jerry Rice.

    • Stonginator says:

      I think that you could mention C. Carter in the same sentence as Rice, but no way Moss. How about the same sentence as Owens . . .

    he made ’98 what it was
    they didn’t know
    killer speed

  6. Fragile Freds says:

    Well, when the Jets decided it was less risk to hire a gun toting felon wide receiver who hadn’t played in two years than sign Rand dude, that spells retirement.

    Freds thinks he wanted to spare the embarrassment of sitting out there realizing no one wanted him. He’ll be back, it’s a Favre retirement.

    Perhaps the best front running receiver ever to play the game. If the team was winning, he was money. If you need a guy to step up, be a leader and will his team back to win a big game, this guy was a joke.

    Have to agree with Norse, Moss is no Jerry Rice. A massive waste of talent from a guy who had zero sack.

    • Purple Charlie says:

      Freds,
      Agreed, A Favre retirement, He be back in the right move for him…
      He sure wasted his talent being a jerk at times.

  7. Stonginator says:

    Let’s all have a collective sad sigh . . . Nah forget it.

    GOOD RIDDANCE to the guy that had the most talent, coupled with the WORST attitude ever.

  8. Fragile Freds says:

    McKinnie placed on non-football injury list.

    Oh really? Wow! Freds suspects one of the following:

    – Tennis elbow
    – Rappers throat
    – His ass fell asleep watching the Simpsons and he can’t wake it up.
    – Tripped and fell jumping over 1 blue gym mat
    – Got hit in the chunks by a Venus William serve
    – Cut his finger while whiggy wiggin an old vinyl record during a deep rap session with LL Motha F’in cool mo Dee.
    – Or he’s just fat as hell.

    If this is it for you Randy, thanks for the memories!
    There will never be another like you. One of the greatest of all- time, period!

    There is nothing sadder than wasted talent. Steve Young said that if had applied himself 100% every day, every game he would be knocking on Jerry Rice’s door… I completely disagree, if he had applied himself every day, every game, he would destroy all of Rice’s records and quite comfortably walk into the best EVER spot.

    Straight wasted talent, Homie.

  11. sb says:

    Sad waste of talent. He could have been the GOAT if he given 100% throughout his career. He would have annihilated Jerry rices numbers had he played with a hall of fame qb his whole career like most of the WR’s in the HOF. I can’t think of too many players you could say that have had such a fantastic career, yet fell so disappointingly short of their potential.
