Randy Moss: Impatience Costs Moss Final Shot at Elusive Championship
Had Randy Moss just waited it out, he would have had a chance to win a Super Bowl.
The contenders hadn't come calling as quickly as he had hoped, and abruptly, the future Hall of Famer decided to retire, leaving fans of the game wondering what happened to force him away from the game without a real explanation. Moss was linked to teams like the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens, all teams that can make a serious run in the postseason and challenge for a Super Bowl.
Yet, those teams weren't going to overpay for him, and they didn't chase him with the same vigor as other players got in the mad scramble of this offseason. Clearly, this upset Moss, who has always wanted teams to crave his services. It lead to his retirement, and it's sad that he couldn't be more patient during this entire process.
Moss and his agent made it clear that he was in stellar shape and ready to become the guy that struck fear into the heart of opposing secondaries, but now, he's retiring, and it makes you wonder if he ever had the heart to make another championship push.
If he did, he would have held out, knowing that he was going to make every team that passed on him pay, much like he did in his rookie season with Minnesota. Moss had a ruthless streak that allowed him to rip the heart out of opposing teams, but now, his heart told him to quit instead of waiting for the golden opportunity that was around the corner.
Teams were interested, and Moss could have been a deadly force in a competitive offense, but he couldn't handle the fact that he wasn't the apple of everyone's eye. It may be disappointing, but it's a fitting end to a career that was full of ill-tempered moments.
Moss was always a cranky player that needed to be pampered, and in his final moments as an NFL star, he walked away because teams refused to bow down and beg for him to sign on the dotted line.
Now, he'll always have to wonder what might have been as he stares at his empty trophy case.
