For the past week or so I have been hearing various vague rumors and conjectures about Randy Moss, currently a disgruntled Oakland Raiders wide receiver and previous to that a disgruntled Minnesota Vikings wide receiver, becoming a Green Bay Packer. Now, I don't know what keeps happening to Moss' gruntle, that it keeps getting dissed, but I know that I don't want that donkey on my favorite team.

He's a cancer, pure and simple. He makes everyone around him worse, he's a head case, he's got a lousy work ethic, and he will poison a young team that was just starting to gel rather nicely at the end of last year. The only player I would want less than Moss is Terrell Owens, because I think Owens' cancer would spread quicker and be more deadly.

Football is a team sport more so than any other-- all 11 guys on the field for a team better be working in concert or things are likely going to go badly very quickly. And this is true on both sides of the ball, offense and defense. Moss does not play well with others, he does not try hard on plays that aren't designed to get him the ball, he does not block well down field for his teammates. He is close to the antithesis of a team player-- that position is currently being held down quite firmly by T.O., but Moss would have to be in the top 5.

He is a donkey, and I do not want him in a Packer uniform. Ever. He is an incredibly talented young man, but the talent he brings does not, nor will it ever, outweigh the negative effects his attitude and actions will have, both on the field and in the locker room. He will cancel out much of the good juju Donald Driver generates with his relentless work ethic and willingness to play through injuries.

And Moss' career long habit of not running hard on plays not designed to go to him will be particularly glaring and disastrous in Green Bay, because he'll have Brett Favre throwing him the ball, and with Brett, you never know where he's going to throw it no matter for whom the play is designed. This image pretty well sums up Randy Moss and why I don't want him in Green Bay:
