Randy Moss – “I Wanna Play Football”

20120213-161736.jpgThere’s not too much excitement coming out of Patriots Nation these days, but this is something that might leave a tingling feeling in any Pats fan. The big news of the day, which happens to be his birthday, is that Randy Moss wants to come out of his short-lived retirement. Initially, it’s hard to think too much into this right now. 1.) I don’t really even want to think about the Pats right now, and 2.) How many times do we hear this from recently retired athletes? The whole T.O. ordeal at the beginning of this season is a perfect example. Look how that turned out. Brett Favre? Don’t even get me started. We all know where that goes. You get my point. We’ve even heard Moss say he wants back before, but it just never happened. Even if it did happen, what if he’s not the Moss of old? Sorry Chad, but it could turn out to be a bust again. And remember, for the most part I can’t argue with the fact that he’s a poison to the locker room. Not the Pats locker room, but locker rooms in general. If it’s Bill and the Pats locker room, nevermind.

On the other hand, how can it not excite you just a bit? With the final game of the 2007-08 season aside, how great is reliving those times. Absolute domination. Over the past few seasons, it’s become clear that the deep threat is what we are missing the most. The final piece of the puzzle that we once had. Add that into the mix this year, with the short field threat of Gronk and Hernandez, and there’s no way any defense could contain us. Not to mention, Moss loves the Patriots. He loves Brady and Bill. If Moss comes back, if anyone could get him back in Foxboro it’d be Bill. The ups and downs are pretty much clear. With that said, Pats fan or not, would you welcome Moss out of retirement onto your team?


Bears Have No Interest in Favre

According to sources the Chicago Bears have no interest in signing retired QB Brett Favre. Why wouldn’t you give the guy a shot? Lets clear one thing up first, I believe it is in Favres best interest to stay retired because if he were to fail it would just be another chance for the media to take a shot at his legacy. As for the Bears, I would want the guy. Better yet I would want anyone other than Caleb Hanie. The Bears have a legitimate playoff shot, but with Hanie under center they might not even win another game. What do they have to lose? If they bring in a QB like Favre or McNabb and they succeed; Lovie Smith will look like a genius. If they fail, at least they gave it a shot with someone other than a guy that has 6 interceptions in two games. It’s do or die time for the Bears. They have a quality defense that can overshadow a mediocre offense to make a legitimate playoff push. What they do with their quarterback situation this week will show their fans how dedicated they are to making this season a success.
