Santana Moss Blames Todd Collins
I really haven’t seen this get much play, maybe because this was the most overlooked game of the weekend. After losing to the Seahawks 35-14 (fittingly by 21 points) and seeing his season come to an end, Santana Moss was answering questions for the media. It seemed pretty clear to me that he was hanging his quarterback Todd Collins out to dry with one of his remarks:
Collins finally had a pass land in the other team’s hands. When receiver Moss gave up on a route deep down the right sideline, Marcus Trufant easily hauled in the ball and returned it 78 yards for a score.
“I thought it was a dead play,” Moss said. “Then, all of a sudden I look up and the guy is catching it like a punt. You hate to be in a situation where the ball is coming and you don’t even know it.”
That changed the game from 21-14 with about five minutes left to 28-14, essentially giving it to Seattle. I can’t stand one teammate blaming another following a loss, much less when he’s the one who quit on a play. That’s like a double-negative, blaming a teammate and quitting on a play. I know you’re pissed your season just ended, but keep your mouth shut, Santana, and stop blaming others. Poor form Santana, poor form.
