A Meeting of the Mind(less) and Moss?
Wow! Just when you thought life couldnít get any crazier, the Minnesota Vikings come to town, and leaves a wake of chaos behind them, along with a player. I donít even know how to comment on the bizarre behavior of Brad Childress. I think BB said it best on WEEI, ďI canít comment on any other teamís transactions or players.Ē I couldn't agree more. What the hell kind of comment can you add to what happened the past few weeks?
First, Childress goes Spygate on BBís ass before the game, then he freaks out and releases Moss, without permission from the his GM or owner, and probably guaranteeing his release after the season, if not during season. But what he really did was reveal a leaderless franchise. Whose in charge? The ridiculous owner who wanted Moss and Favre at all cost. The ridiculous GM who made it clear he had no responsibility for any of the Moss or Favre decisions. And of course the perpetually ridiculous Childress, who has a degree in psychology, so you think he would know better, but apparently when he plays mind games he ends up playing them with himself. Is it any wonder that this ridiculous franchise sold itsí soul for the vastly overrated Favre, and then gave up a valuable 3rd Round pick for Moss, only to have buyers remorse three weeks later and release him.
The only thing I can say is thank god for Bill Belichick. Enjoy this time when he is running the Patriots. Now is the golden age of a Patriots football. Sooner than you think, Tom Brady is going to retire. Worst of all, sooner than you think BB is going to be gone as well. We can only hope that he pulls a Parcells and jumps upstairs to become president of operations after he is done coaching. Every now a again, and I know Iíve been throwing around the stupid moniker lately but come on, random act of stupidity, thatís funny;-) However, every now and again the truly stupid reveal their stupid brains, and talk about getting BB out of town. Now as nuts as it sounds, Iíve heard so-called patriotís fans saying this crap. And that is not just sports stupid, that is real life stupid. BB adds a stability to this franchise that all other team try and emulate. He makes mistakes, like all people. He had three straight bad drafts, like a lot of people in sports. His trade down philosophy may have been overdone and annoying, but he has used to rebuild this defense in two years. You have to give him credit for keeping this franchise stable while he rebuilt the team, that is not an easy accomplishment, especially when you observe all the chaos of other franchises we have seen.
I hate the throwback uniforms. Do
you not remember what it was like around here before the logo change. Their
was no glorious past, it was chaos, like in
BB adds a stability to this team
that we are so used to seeing that we take it for granted. But every now and
again we get peeks into what it is like on other teams, and a reminder of
what it was like before he came to town. Every week a different team comes
to town, and we get a little glimpse into life in another organization: the
culture of stupidity in San Diego, the culture of arrogance in New Jersey,
the cold-hearted incompetence of the owner up in Buffalo, the nearsighted
incompetence of the Viking franchise, and of course the chaos created by
crazy owners in Washington and Dallas. I heard something hilarious on a
podcast this week, I donít remember which one, but they were talking about
Jerry Jones and how he wanted to take over as coach of the Cowboys, but NFL
rules forbid an owner from coaching his own team. Now if the NFL really
wanted to promote itself they would let owners coach their teams, and can
you imagine that wonderful display of arrogance and insanity? I would watch
that reality show, and I hate reality shows. Can you imagine that ego on
wheels coaching the Cowboys, LOL. I gar-un-tee it would be the funniest show
on TV. I even have a name for it, ďJerry does
After watching this whole Moss saga I canít help but feel lucky. I disagreed with the Moss release, but I canít argue with the results. They have been on a nice streak. Iím not even sure I would take him back? Itís one thing to disagree with BB, but when he proves himself right, what can you say? The loss of Moss somehow added stability to this team. Now, a lot of what we saw had way more to do with the young defense maturing and becoming a physical, bruising, and turnover inducing defense, than the offense. The question is, do you want to mess with this new formula?
Believe it or not, but right now
we have the best record in the NFL, and have played one of the hardest
schedules. Besides the boneheaded led
