You Can Go Home Again

My thoughts on the Randy Moss trade may not be in lockstep with others. Oh well, so be it. I think it could be a good trade for Minnesota. True, they did give up a third rounder, which to me is almost like the player to be named later. It could burn them or the player could be a bum. Before I go any further, remember the great Brett Favre lobbied for him when he was still in Green Bay.

Moss will give someone that Favre can trust going deep to. And you know Brett will force it to him, even if he's triple covered. Even though Moss is older, he's still an athletic freak. He's still one of the top five receivers in the league. This could make Favre's last hurrah (allegedly) one to remember.

On the flip side, the Patriots offense might actually suffer without Moss. Let's see what Wes Welker can do underneath, now that all the coverages will be focused on him. Who's going to fill in for him? I think they hope Brandon Tate and Julian Edelman can help fill that role. I just don't really see a go to guy. But then again, Tom Brady has made it work before with less than receivers. Hey, they also can bring Troy brown out of retirement. The running game isn't solid, so i can see some of the top defenses teeing off on Brady.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see how everything turns out. The Patriot way actually might work out and Favre to Moss might be explosive enough to get Minnesota to the Super Bowl. This could be the best and last chance for both.
