Vikings Release Randy Moss, New England Patriots Doing Fine Without him


Yesterday, Randy Moss echoed the sentiments of ’80s trash metal band Cinderella: “You don’t know what you got till it’s gone.”

After his former team, the New England Patriots beat down and beat up his Minnesota Vikings 28-18, Moss told the press what a great Coach Bill Belichick is (uhm yeah, the sky is blue, water’s wet…basic obvious truths here) and how much he misses being in New England.

The Vikings responded by releasing him on Monday afternoon. A bit unexpected yes?

Back to yesterday, Moss hugged the Patriots players and coaching staff after the game, a game in which the Patriots much maligned secondary (a ridiculous ragtag, hodge podge of misfits aren’t they?) held him to just one catch for eight yards.

The Patriots are doing quite well after the trade. They became the first NFL team to reach six wins, and thanks to Green Bay’s win over the disgusting and detestable New York Jets, New England now has first place in the AFC all to themselves. By the way, they are 3-0 without Moss.
