Randy Moss and His Mouth Gets Him Out of the Vikings. Now to the Colts or the Redskins?

Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss declared New England Patriot‘s coach Bill Belichick as “the best coach in football history” to the press after the Vikings loss to the Patriots on Monday.  Apparently, Randy Moss decided to show his true divisive nature early, and Vikings head coach Brad Childress responded in kind.  Now Moss is being led out of Minnesota with bags in tow.  To where?

Coach Mike Shanahan of the Washington Redskins appear to be interested in acquiring Moss. Jim Caldwell of the Indianapolis Colts also appear interested.  Will Randy Moss fit in either system?

The Redskins are in desperate need of the deep threat. Santana Moss will do, but they believe they need more.  With Mosses opposite of each other, this could be a dangerous threat. Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb could be reliving his days with Terrell Owens while with the Philadelphia Eagles.  But Moss is far more acerbic than Owens could ever be.  I would estimate far fewer games than with Owens before the powder keg explodes. Redskins owner Dan Snyder could easily acquire Moss, but he may be getting more of a disruptive influence  than Albert Haynesworth.

The Colts are a professional team led by quarterback Peyton Manning and coach Jim Caldwell.  Due to injuries on the roster, they may also be looking for another wide receiver.  Randy Moss may have the talent for this team, but Caldwell and Manning would lack the patience for any disruptive behavior.  Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne already got punished for his behavior in a couple of games by having less looks by Manning. If Moss acted up, he would get none.  Then he would get even more destructive to the Indianapolis Colts. I don’t think this will work.

Dan Snyder and Mike Shanahan look to be the best fit for Moss. “Best” might not be the right word though. Randy Moss would have good times for some games, but it wouldn’t last long in my opinion.
