On the Moss trade

Since BDK was interested, I thought I would put up a thread for the Randy Moss trade. Since he at one point said this, may I recommend that he look up Romans 9:20 and apply its lesson to the Moss trade. 

Just so my cards are on the table, I am a theist, and His name is Belichick.

No offense to Commandment One.

Doc, is your name pronounced "Ree pert" - long "e" sound? I'm debating my wife on this point =D

Good to see scripture to remind me what is important.

Belichick knows a little more than I do about the situation, has a great ability to use long-term vision to make tough decisions. Word is that Moss had become locker room poison, which was especially troublesome for such a young team that Belichick is trying to mold, to find future leaders, etc..

One thing we've learned: no individual is indispensible. Brady is a soft counterexample, but even without Brady, the season they had Cassel they did pretty damned well (11-5).

Sorry, Moss, you couldn't be a team player. People like you don't last in New England.

So, when I first found out about it I was stricken, I have now come to terms with it. IBWT (In Belichick We Trust)

It's phonetic. Two short es.

Who won, you, or your wife?

BDK: Have you taken the Outsider Test for Sports Allegiance (OTSA)?

I failed.

Blue Devil Knight said...

Probably couldn't pass OT for being a fan: I'm a Pat's fan because my dad and his family was. Definitely nonrational factors there. That implies the Patriots aren't a good team, right?

Lions fan here. Prima donna Moss goes back to the Vikings. What happens after Favre retires? Or will he come back, now?

Victor Reppert said...

I think Loftus is a Colts fan, so he may be more than eager to concur.

GearHedEd said...

I pass the OTSA, but it's not a rational thing.

I am a Lions fan, too.

normajean said...

Doc, I won. Thanks

I grew up in Illinois near the Wisconsin line. Then I was a Packer fan. I moved to Denver, switched to the Broncos. Then moved to Phoenix. Go Cardinals!

I think this means if I moved to India, I would be a Hindu.

Victor Reppert said...

Hey, the Lions beat the Rams 44-6. Does this mean they're good?

Victor Reppert said...

I'm still waiting for the Outsider Test for Faith tracts to come out. You know, the ones that look like Four Spiritual Laws pamphlets that people in the Campus Freethought Alliance can use to hassle people on college malls.

David said...

Who has caused me more trouble, the Rams or my radical teenage Libertarian son or that Moses was not more 21st century?

Bradford could have used Moss. Woe is me.

Dr.Reppert,

The Cardinals also beat the Saints; clearly, Kurt Warner is needed back no longer now that Max Hall is here!

Okay, I might be exaggerating just a bit...

Victor Reppert said...

Hall of Fame quarterbacks are not so easily replaced. But I am happier with Hall than win Anderson or Leinart.

The victory, however, was more the result of defense and special teams play. However, I think Hall inspires performance from his teammates, which Anderson and Leinart were unable to do. He was also playing with the #2 and #3 receivers missing.

Bilbo said...

Are the Lions good? Hmmm. They have a LOT of offensive weapons, and when the Linehan (the offensive coordinator) let's them play, the Lions can score a LOT of points. They also have a very good defensive line. But they are weak against the run, and until recently, very weak against the pass. But they seem to be improving in that category.

But I think St. Louis losing their stare receiver on the second play of the game made things easy for Detroit. The NY Giants are coming to town. That should be a good test.

Bilbo said...

For all you numerologists, the last time the Lions scored 44 points in a game was exactly 44 games ago.

The Patriots seem to be doing OK without Moss (one game only I admit not enough to really tell, but beating the Ravens is impressive).
