Raheem Says No To Randy Moss

November 1st, 2010

At his 4 o’clock news conference, Raheem Morris said the Bucs will not seek the services of future Hall of Fame wideout Randy Moss, who was cut by the Vikings earlier today.

Raheem says that’s no knock on Moss; He simply likes his six wide receivers.

At 5-2 and at least thinking about the playoffs, Joe thought the Bucs might sniff out Moss. Hey, they could always cut him. But the reality is the Bucs are low on the waiver list, because of their strong record, and probably wouldn’t get a shot at him anyway.

Maurice Stovall or Randy Moss? Fun to think about.

    No thanks. I like the idea of Benn, Williams, Stroughter, K2 developing with Freeman over the years. Do not need Moss in the mix now.

  2. KJ Says:

    Yeah just the kind of guy you want to work with young, talented receivers… Randy freaking Moss. Just the kind of guy you want a young, talented QB to have to deal with daily… Randy freaking Moss. Just the kind of guy you want a young, talented head coach to deal with on a daily basis… Randy freaking Moss. The Bucs shouldn’t waste a second of their time debating on whether or not to bring this cancer into the locker room. Good for Raheem Morris. Thanks but no thanks.

    Heck no. Let the Bengals have him.

  4. bucfan Says:

    yea no thanks, we don’t need that scumbag in the locker room.

  5. d-money Says:

    Joe come on now.

    There is no way I would want that guy anywhere near this young team. Randy Moss may be one of the greatest recievers ever to play but his true colors always come out.

    He was a punk when he was kicked off the team at FSU and he is still a punk, a very talented highly paid punk but a punk nonetheless.

    Whichever team picks him up will regret it before the end of the season.

    I am sure Eric would like to disagree with everyone here.

  7. Ash Says:

    Its not Stovall or Moss , Its Mike Williams or Moss. You dont bring in Moss to be a backup WR and were good to go with our number 1 for this year and beyond.

  8. Hunter Says:

    Last time a checked we don’t have a legitimate #2. Sure Benn’s coming along but why not pick this guy up for a half season, sell more tickets and make it interesting. Freeman’s the leader chemistry won’t be a problem. The fact is this team is better with moss than without. To bad it won’t happen

  9. gitarlvr Says:

    Wow… never thought I would see someone make Terrell Owens look like a class act by comparison. Even T.O. never wore his welcome out that quick. So to all the Raheem\Dominik haters- witness what a truly bad coach and GM look like.

  10. gitarlvr Says:

    @Hunter- because he’s a total ass clown and the team is not better with him. Were the Vikings better with him? Have the Patriots missed him? No and No. So why would he make the Bucs better? Because he can still be an occasional deep threat now and then when he actually feels like trying? Williams and Benn just showed us yesterday that we already have two deep threats.

  11. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Moss seemed pretty quiet with the Pats. If this team was at a point that a WR could make a difference, I would say go for him. His skills are diminished, but he’s still very good.

    He probably wants a Championship, and it’s clear the Vikings are not getting one this year. Most likely, they released him to give him the opportunity…especially with Favre’ situation.

    However, in our situation, it is best to keep who we have (although I would love to be rid of Stovall). The current WRs are producing, and they are growing with Freeman…and I think that’s extremely important. Now…if it were a premiere Right Tackle or Defensive End…I would LOVE to have him here!

    Thanks Moss, but no thanks!!!!

    Why not? Doing so would slow the growth of our other Wide Receivers…and he’d be gone at the end of the year. It would be a huge waste.

    Also, it would be a slap in the face to the WRs already here and would affect team chemistry on more than one level.

  14. Hunter Says:

    When you talk about slowing growth of wideouts your overstating it. Normally three years is the average for a wideout to develop into his best form. Moss has been around the block and would contribute to the development of these young wideouts. He’s a not a cancer to the locker room. Stroughter dosen’t have a high ceiling for growth, he’s an average slot reciever, Benn has some upside. So yes randy would improve this team short term and not affect the long term growth. But it won’t happen.

  15. JDouble Says:

    We have a great young core on offense. The chemistry is great and they are all growing up together.

    Why on Earth would anyone think bringing Randy Moss into the locker room would be a good idea?

    Big friggin PASS

  16. Pete Dutcher Says:

    How can you say Stroughter does not have a high ceiling??! We don’t know that yet. He could be to Williams what Carter was to Moss years ago.

    We just do not know yet. And Spurlock also has potential. You are overestimating the need for Moss here.

  17. Capt.Tim Says:

    Did toughie see his post game interview?? Wow assclown, why to disrespect your team!! No, no, no! Raheem has been getting rid of the trash, not bringing it in.

  18. buckeyebob Says:

    This guy would not get within 100 miles of the facility. MD said youth will drive this team and Moss is not going to be a part of the 2010 Buc’s.

    No Moss, no drug dealers, no me me first guys for MD. Not going to happen!

  19. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Baggage. Not worth it.

  20. MOBucs Says:

    Seems the Patriots are better without this guy and the Vikes were no better with him! We got a good thing going right now and don’t need the headache that is Moss.

  21. FIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    Moss makes any team better, whether you like the guy or not. He’s one of the best of all time. But I agree that we don’t need the media circus that comes along with Moss and I want to see what Benn looks like at the end of the season with all the snaps that will be coming his way.

    But don’t kid yourself, Moss is still a great WR.

  22. Patrick Says:

    It’s always interesting when a big name player like Moss comes up for grabs. Can he still play good football? No doubt.

    We’re probably fine for now. Williams is already playing great, K2 is always good, Benn….well he made that one great catch yesterday but still has a lot to prove. He was also our 2nd rd. pick. Stroughter is ok but nothing spectacular. I could understand bringing Moss in as an upgrade over Stroughter or Stovall.

    But look, not pursuing Moss doesn’t bother me. If they decided to bring him in….fine with me. At least he’d give us some media attention.

  23. Pete Dutcher Says:

    btw, what ever happened with Marvin Harrison’s situation?

  24. Joe Says:

    It’s always interesting when a big name player like Moss comes up for grabs. Can he still play good football? No doubt.

    Joe believes there is significant doubt.

    Two teams with sights directly focused on the Lombardi Trophy unloaded him within three weeks.

    Major red flags.

  25. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “But don’t kid yourself, Moss is still a great WR.”

    I would say he’s got great talent and ability, but I don’t know if I would still consider him a great WR. Even by his own admission, he doesn’t work hard on every play. I don’t think there is any doubt he has lost at least a half step, everyone does. Problem is, that half step is a big deal and when you don’t give max effort on every play, your overwhelming football talent no longer makes up for it the way it used to. If he can’t put up big numbers with Tom freakin’ Brady in that New England offense, then it’s not going to happen anywhere. He can still make big plays on occasion, but they will be fewer and farther between.

  26. gitarlvr Says:

    Joe- your exactly right sir. No way Childress unloads this guy so quickly, even if he runs his mouth, unless he wasnt showing that he was going to make an impact towards getting that team to the playoffs. Childress seat is on fire right now and he is desperate for WR help. I looked up the stats and Moss is not on pace for a 1,000 yard season so far despite having Brady and Favre throwing to him. His long of the season is 37 yards. Not bad, but this guy used to regularly smoke defenses for 60-70 yard TD’s. He has probably only lost half a step. Ronde Barber has lost a step but still plays EVERY SINGLE SNAP with the hunger and intensity of a young man trying to make a name for himself. Moss has never been an all out effort guy. So you couple the small reduction in speed, with the lazy, entitled, narcissistic personality and you have a guy who’s ego far outshines his ability at this point in his career and nothing would be more poisonous to a young impressionable locker like the Bucs have.

  27. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Tampa don’t need this headcase at all.

  28. gitarlvr Says:

    @Pete Dutcher- Harrison was a suspect in shooting some scumbag criminal outside his bar in Philly. Said scumbag, who was the only eyewitness accusing Harrison was later shot and killed with no witnesses. The case will probably never be resolved since the main eyewitness is dead. Anyway thats all irrelevant since Harrison is 38 years old and was already washed up during his last year in 2008 when he only had 600 something recieving yards. Even if his legal issues were resolved his 38 and has been out of football two years so he is done.

  29. Joe Says:

    Joe is currently listening to the replay of “The Blitz,” co-hosted by Adam Schein and Rich Gannon, on Sirius NFL Radio, and this was before the news broke that Moss was cut, and Gannon was ripping Moss for Cadillacing play after play in the New England game and how Moss “wasn’t coming off the ball which infuriates quarterbacks.”

    Guess Gannon saw what Childress saw as well?

  30. OB Says:

    I say “Hell No!!”. We have a team that is playing together and it seems like we don’t have any head cases, so what does he bring beside a head case. And all of you forget Mr Spurlock, he is doing a great job catching the ball also. The beauty of this team, is that no one is sure what they can do when they put it together or when they will put it together. Did any of you notice that JF had all the time in the world to throw the long ones? Where did this OL come from?

    Atlanta is going to be a good test of the team in all aspects. As for the Coach’s comment on best team, If the Falcons need something to get up for this game, they are not in the hunt for the Super Bowl.
