Moss will be trading his cleats for a fishing pole this November until someone decides to take a chance on him.

Bears Schedule Looks More Promising as Vikings Waive Randy Moss


Randy Moss's second tenure with the Vikings ended today after less than a month.

NFL Network has just reported that the Minnesota Vikings have waived WR Randy Moss.  This is following a lackluster performance on Sunday against the New England Patriots where he only had 1 catch for 8 yards.  He has been vocal about missing his former team since the trade.  However, his effort could have been in response to being fined $25,000 last week for not cooperating with the media.  It was obvious he wasn’t happy about the fine when, after the game this Sunday, he told the media that “I’ll ask my own questions.”  Whatever that means.

Nonetheless, he’ll have some time to ponder where he will make his next ourburst since as of today he is without a team.  He will be a free agent after this year if no one signs him.  Maybe the Bears should be interested in acquiring him if he clears waivers.  A good veteran receiver is currently non-existent on the Bears sidelines and Green Bay looks like they may start pulling away in the NFC North.  Yeah, we will have to deal with his antics, but he does bring talent.  What’s the worst that can happen?

At the very least, the Bears will not have to face Moss when they face the Vikings twice during the second half of the season.  And Favre is getting more and more banged up each week.  Always an optimist, the Bears second half looks a little brighter.  Most people have wrote the Bears off already, but adding Moss to the mix would make for an interesting second half.  We will see.

In the meantime, Moss will have more time to catch up on his fishing in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

    I’ve been looking for something to cheer me up since that abhorrent loss to the Redskins and this circus has done the trick. Watching Favre get taken off on a cart help as well.

    Cheer Pickles, Favre cuddling the trainer off the field was uplifting….

    The mess that is Brad Childress and a desperate organization is unseemly. With the talent on that roster, they should have just developed TJackson and run the football anyway.

    Now Belicheck gets Moss back and the Vikes third round pick…. maybe Angelo is a paid consultant to the Vikes afterall!

    At the end of the day though, Minnesota is stout up front and will manhandle the Bears at the line of scrimmage. Cutler will be escaping for his life as he has for two years now.

    Be optimistic Boomer, but realize the equation really hasn’t changed that much and both Favre and Moss are gravy to a very potent meat and viking potatoe roster.

    PS… what is the “CAPTCHA” code all about anyway? Some sort of easily picked firewall?

      The CAPTCHA keeps out the random spam for Viagra, penis enlargement and Brett Favre junk shots. While inconvenient, it keeps the site relatively tidy.
