Ol’man Favre. Making his second first start in his career tonight after missing just one game last week, ending his record of 297 consecutive starts. Right off the bat, makes his first drive back a touchdown drive to Percy Harvin.

This whole Randy Moss/Minnesota Vikings/New England Patriots trade/not happy team player/ whatever the fuck it really is, is like a really bad episode of some teenage soap opera.
If you’re not a New England Patriots fan or a Minnesota Vikings fan or even a football fan in general. Let me fill you in with the situation on hand.
The Italics is the teenage soap opera situation.
The Bold is the actual situation.
Brady break up with Moss four weeks ago.
The New England Patriots trade Randy Moss.
Moss doesn’t care, goes back to old boyfriend in Minnesota.
Randy Moss doesn’t care about the fact that he is traded by the Patriots. And is actual happy at the fact that he was traded to his original team, the Minnesota Vikings.
Tom moves on, goes off to have himself a good time, even after everyone says he’ll miss Moss. Instead Tom hangs out old friend, Deion Branch and eventually has more fun than before.
Patriots keep playing (great, if I may add) without Moss. Even after they’re critize for their mid-season trade of Moss. Saying that New England will miss Moss later. Instead they acquire Deion Branch, a previous Patriot and by the time they meet up with Moss again, they’re the number one team in the NFL.
Meanwhile, Randy says he’s happy. But as the weeks go by, he acts more and more careless. Doesn’t seem happy where he ended up.
Randy says he’s glad to be playing for Minnesota. But he plays mediocre. With the same attitude he always plays with when he isn’t happy with his team.
Randy still misses New England.
Football fan or not, this is just too crazy to believe is happening.
For the record, I’m a New England Patriots fan and I hope we get Randy Back.
Because if we do, that not only ensures a clean road to the Super Bowl, we also basically stole a third round pick from Minnesota, acquired another great player (Deion Branch) and proves that Bill Belichick is a genius coach! And also the greatest coach of all time. Which he always was, but it proves the point even more.
To all you “football” fans who say Favre is done. He just passed 70,000 yards. (Most yards thrown in NFL History) And threw his 500th Touchdown (Most in NFL History as well) to Randy Moss.
In other late or early news, (depending on how you sleep or where you are in the world.) Rumors are turning out to be true. Randy Moss, the Wide Receiver for The New England Patriots for the past three years, is likely to be traded to the Minnesota Vikings for a 3rd round pick in 2011. Bill Belichick is infamously known amongst players in the NFL to “get rid” of players who no longer seem promising to the Patriots in any way. Many who have been through this have commented by saying, “Belichick uses you. When you’re doing good, when you still have some talent in you. No problem. But the moment your shine fades, you’re out of there. Just like that.” Moss has brought tremendous success to, not only The New England Patriots, but to individual players.
Most famously, Tom Brady, back in 2007. Together they broke numerous records together. Most well known, Tom Brady’s amazing record setting “50 touchdowns in one season” (Not including post-season.) 23 of those touchdowns belonging to Randy Moss, making another record for most touchdowns by a wide receiver in one season, not including post-season as well.
In reality, this is good trade. Business wise. Moss is 33 years old. And didn’t have any receptions on the Monday night game versus The Dolphins. Many have been speculating his time was done in New England, as his contract is also complete by the end of this year. But personally, it’s sad seeing player who more than helped this organization in all ways possible to leave. Like Tom Hagan said, “It’s not personal, just business.” The positive thing about this trade is that Randy Moss will most likely eventually retire a Viking. His first NFL team. The trade is set to be completed by this Wednesday. And with that said, I say two things;
- I had no clue I was an amateur sports columnist.
- And thank you Randy for the three great years.
