The press needs to get off Randy Moss' back about his "rant" tonight. He is absolutely right with regards to the press in the New England area and how they write about him. It goes along the same lines as the press giving players a hard time for standing in solidarity in the Saint's game the other night. I heard about it for over an hour on Mike & Mike as well as many other shows for days after the game. He has played in every game since coming to the Patriots, he's shown up and shut his mouth all pre-season. He gives his all in every game and he expects to be paid accordingly. Moss deserves to have been offered a new contract already. And Randy said it exactly as it is, to the TRUE fans, that he will finish out his contract but the press is making a big deal about him not being happy, what do you expect? The guy produces and until he stops producing, he deserves a big fat contract. I find it ironic that when certain other players for the Patriots have contracts up and Kraft balks at giving them a good deal, or tells the player privately that the organization will take care of him and then when the time comes to sign, that isn't the case. Moss had five catches for 59 yards while Welker scored two touchdowns, does ANYONE honestly believe that the Patriots are nearly as potent without Moss on the field. He DICTATES the defensive scheme of the other team, NOT Brady, NOT Welker, MOSS. All the REAL fans should get behind Moss and support him. It's a shame when you do a search for Randy Moss in the coming days, all you will see come up are articles on how Moss cried foul at the wrong time and should shut up. Moss is 100% right and the Pats should have an offer on the table by week 4 so that he knows the organization wants him to stick around. Period. Now start reporting on some real news New England Media.
