Randy Moss: Risk vs Reward

ALAMEDA, CA - MARCH 02: Oakland Raiders coach Norv Turner (L) introduces new Raiders

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.


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.


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?

    Tarvaris Jackson gets benched for being a bad QB and the Vikings get Brett. Brett plays sorry so the Vikings go get Moss to help him. Brett still plays sorry so they cut Randy Moss and say it’s all Randy’s fault. Wow!!!!! They where sorry before they got Randy. Isn’t that the whole reason why they got Randy????

    Why didn’t Jackson get a chance to play with Moss and that loaded receiver core??????? Why are the Vikings wasting Adrian Peterson’s best years with this Favre circus?????

    They will spend millions to make old pervert Favre look good but Jackson just gets benched. I bet they throw Tarvaris in next week and say “see we told you he was sorry.” Spend that $16 million you have Favre and stack the receiving core for Jackson.

    Did Randy send nude photos of himself to vikings employees or is he under an NFL investigation????

    Didn’t the media start this with the Randy is mean and doesn’t want to talk to us speech and that candid locker room recording??? Now it’s Randy said too much. Wow!!! Now I see why Moss didn’t want to talk to the phony media.

      it is a fricking circus out in MINN!! I cannot make sense of this move at all!!! they spend a 3rd round draft pick to eventually cut a guy after 4 weeks. What is with that!!??!?! Hey MINN, I will trade you our long snapper for your 4th round pick!!

      Brett Favre is done and is playing on one ankle. He couldn’t even produce on both ankles. The lights are dim on Favre’s career and he just needs to call it quits and let the Minnesota Vikings organization move on from his handcuffs.

      This should be Adrian Peterson’s team and not Brett Favre’s circus. AP is one of the best (if not the best) running backs in the league.They need to feed him the ball and just allow him to put in work!! the receivers out there are great and there would have been a combination of Randy Moss, Sydney Rice and Percy Harvin. That offense would have been ridiculous, other than the fact that Favre has lost all the magic.

      It’s a wrap!!! MINN is done for the season and Favre needs to move on!

    I agree with you, EP, completely, we could use Randy desperately. With or without Randy, two more losses, and there will plenty of drama in the Charger locker room as it plays out a meaningless season. Look at the IR report. We need bodies! Besides, what the h… is so bad about a guy that hates press conferences. Randy can still stretch the field, and could really help our talented offense in the R zone.
    Did Randy ever get a DUI hours before a playoff game?
    Sign him for a year, and go with it.
    (Too bad, we’ve already played the Pats.)

      EXACTLY… also, Shaun Phillips hates press conferences as much as Randy Moss. They can share a bond there together. Last press conference, Phillips responded to every question with the answer “next!” How bad can it really be?!? Come on AJ, lets make this happen. I find it interesting that AJ has not actually spoken about the roster like he normally does.
