When it comes to Randy Moss, we need to analyze the risk vs reward of bringing a player like this to a team like the San Diego Chargers. It is up for debate if Randy Moss would be a good fit for this team.

RISK

We do not need a player on an offense that is already ranked number 1 in the league. He is a head case and is full of drama. He will be a cancer to the locker room and mess with the chemistry on this team. He will not play his heart out and just is going through the motions. We won’t pay for his contract and we have other issues on this team that we need to correct before we go after a wide receiver. Philip Rivers is able to make any receiver play well in this offense. Rivers makes the receivers and its not the other way around.

REWARD

Randy Moss is a hall of fame candidate and an All Pro player. IF he plays up to his potential this offense would be unstoppable with the combination of Rivers, Gates, Moss, and Vincent Jackson. The field will be stretched even more for the running attack of Mathews, Tolbert, and Sproles. The receiving depth chart has taken a huge hit with injuries and we have had to start Patrick Crayton, Seyi Ajirotutu, and Gary Banks last week. He adds veteran experience and is much better than anything we were able to put on the field last week. By claiming Moss, we keep him from joining one of our opponents in Kansas City and Oakland. If he does not perform for the Chargers, then we just do the same thing that Minnesota did, and cut him.

I don’t know what everyone else’s opinion on this possibility, BUT I am a gambler and the reward far outweighs the risk in my mind. This season can be put to bed with a couple of losses and any improvement to the team at this time is welcomed. What are your thoughts?
