Brad Childress. That is the reason Randy Moss is not a Viking right now. Period. Don’t blame the alleged caterer incident. Moss was released because Chilly was an idiot and had zero leadership skills. If in fact the player was rude about the food, you must address the player, not dismiss him. And if you won’t address him, have a veteran player like Favre, or even Jimmy Kleinsasser, who has been a long-time teammate of Moss, say something. Instead, Childress released Moss, and at that time owner Zygi Wilf thought about releasing Chilly and keeping Moss. Now, thankfully, Childress is long gone.
Today the Minnesota Vikings open training camp. This should be a day of celebration, but even though the Vikes have added Donovan McNabb and Christian Ponder, they lost Sidney Rice. Minnesota desperately needs a big play WR and Moss is available. The fans love him and I’m sure McNabb would love to throw to him. Randy is better than Plaxico Burress or Braylon Edwards. Plax is now a Jet while Edwards used to be.
Minnesota is in an extremely tough division. I picked them to finish last a few months ago. McNabb may help in the short term, but he will need help. The Vikings are a team that has a lot of Pro-Bowl players that are at the end of their run. Moss, in the short-term would be an excellent addition. Sign him to a two year deal with some incentives, and you probably get him for $4-6 million a year. Minnesota, Moss, and McNabb are all missing one thing. A Super Bowl title. 3M should be the new Viking company.
