Randy Moss announced Monday he wants to play football next season. ESPN employee Cris Carter seemed to support Moss’ comeback Monday, boasting about his former teammate’s elite speed.
But Carter pointed out a downside Tuesday.
“The one thing you have to address with Randy Moss is not a conditioning thing,” Carter said on Mike & Mike in the Morning. “It’s not an age thing. It needs to be addressed. I believe it’s the elephant in the room. It’s that thing called quit.
“And Randy, not like any other superstar I’ve met, he has more quit in him than any of those other players. So I need to address that. That’s what [Bill] Belichick did when he brought him over from Oakland. He told him he wasn’t going to have it.
“But Randy, when things don’t go well, like no other player I’ve ever been around or associated with, he has a quit mechanism in him that’s huge. That needs to be addressed before he signs with any team.”
For once in his life as an analyst, Carter is right. Moss is a quitter. He quit on the Raiders, he quit on the Pats, he quit on the Vikings, and he quit on the Titans.
Knowing Randy’s style, he wasn’t going to stay quiet and take the criticism. He responded to Carter via his Da Real Otis Moss Twitter account (great handle).
Moss may have regretted the tweet, because he later sent a followup message “Cc no matter I still luv u bruh.”
Teams may have interest in Moss, but that should come with caution. Randy has been given so many chances only to have the same issues persist. If they really think he’s going to have a good attitude with them, they’re fooling themselves.Google+
