Randy Moss: Super Bowl Loser

Randy Moss
Randy Moss


It was roughly a year ago that I launched TheEyePatch, after watching the Indianapolis Colts beat the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI. I did it to express my opinions on the state of the Raiders, which at the time was pretty bad. So here I am, basking in the depression that is another year without a Raiders Super Bowl. If you’re anything like me, it’s a pretty sad day.

I’m certainly not getting any younger, and recent news on more in fighting at the Raiders Alameda headquarters just brings more disdain for the whole situation. Super Bowl Sunday has become more of a day of mourning than a day to celebrate the best the NFL has to offer, because the day is so far from including anything resembling silver & black that it’s just down right depressing.

The funny thing, today looked like it was going to go from bad to worse. Outside of the Raiders current situation, the only thing that could have made it worse was watching Randy Moss win a ring. To have him catch the game winning touchdown in the final 2 minutes of the game would have iced this day as one of the worst ever.

I made it no secret that my disdain for Moss is unparalleled. Moss quit on the Raiders. He quit on every one that supports the Raiders. To see him have a monster year in New England only a season removed from his pout-fest in Oakland was revolting. He’s a “me” guy, not a team guy. And me guys make me sick.

So before you chalk me up as some homer, I’ll tell you that I think the New England Patriots are one heck of a team and that I envy their offensive line. Logan Mankins is a stud, and he’s probably the third best lineman on that team (although today didn’t really reflect that).

Randy Moss, for all his worthlessness today, still had the class to make that swimming move after catching the TD that put the Patriots up late in the 4th. Up to that point he did nothing. In the biggest game of his life, he did nothing to help carry the load, and for that I can only bask in the pleasure of the fact that Randy Moss will get no ring this year. Hopefully ever.

His touchdown came after the defender that was covering him fell down. Yet, the guy acts as if the center of the football universe should take note that he’s some sort of football god.

No Randy, you’re the epitome of selfish, and karma got the better of you today.

More Super Bowl Musings

Besides Moss, I couldn’t be happier that Bill Belichick, Rodney Harrison and Tom Brady get to stew on this loss for a while. Belichick is a cheater. Harrison is a cheap shot artist and Brady was exposed today as the overrated quarterback that he is.

Without guys like Mankins, Brady is a mediocre signal caller. The Giants showed the world that by putting a little pressure on him, he’s just no football demi-god. I just hope the rest of the league takes notice and starts putting him on his back more often.

Good for Kurt Warner pressing the subject on the Pats spygate rumor now swirling around Super Bowl XXXVI. If the Pats did in fact tape the Rams walkthrough before the Super Bowl, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should have the stones to really ding the Patriots. Losing a 1st round draft pick and some cash was a slap on the wrist.

Hit’em where it hurts commish!

I can’t wait to hear Tiki Barber’s spin on Eli Manning. Wasn’t it Barber who ripped his former teammate after retiring last spring? Barber questioned Manning’s leadership ability and effectiveness as a passer. The guy looked pretty darn good to me on that final Giants drive.

Oh, and no, they don’t give rings out to retirees.

You are retarded.

Moss wasn't on your piss-poorly prepared offensive line.

Moss did a mild celebration when he could have hogged the spotlight.

He was also seen on the bench exhorting his offensive teammates to stand up and cheer for the defense.

He was a great teammate in the Super Bowl.

Was it his fault Brady over threw him at least 3 times on the deep ball?

Go fucking choke on it Patriot-idiot.

you are a dumbass. randy was the most humble and gracious pat's player in the post game interviews, giving the Giants nothing but credit.

And that's his signature celebration. He always does it. Especially at that point during the game when they just took the lead, he was expected to celebrate. Randy also spent time congratulating his teammates as well.

Plus he was shadowed by 2-3 players damn near every play, and add that to the fact Tom Brady was pressured the majority of the game, so you're not going to catch alot passes.

You lack alot of common sense.

So, scoring one of the Pats two touchdowns = worthless?

Also, as evidenced by this year, he wasn't the reason the Raiders sucked either.

You sound like a bitter person who got dumped for someone better. Turn the page.

YEA BABY! They are pissed. How's it feel bitches :-)

The funny thing is, if they would have sat everyone early and not tried to beat the giants in the regular season, they probably would have won the SB. I say that because that game was INVALUABLE tape to prepare with.

Used to be my second favorite team until they switched to the hockey uniforms.


HA HA HA HAHAHAHA!!

Let Miami's yearly champagne ritual continue!

Moss is a clown because he quit on the Raiders. They would have sucked with or without him, but when you're saying 'I'd play better if I was motivated' at press confrences, you're a spoiled bitch. I disagree vehemently with your assessment that Brady is 'overrated', but I think you made great points about Moss. For most of the playoffs, he disappeared, and his only significant contribution came when a defender simply slipped and fell down.

Great to see the Patriot fans posting today!

I have a question for them that has bothered me for a long time...

Is Bill Belichick really Sling Blade Karl?

Enjoy Randy Moss while you can.

Randy Moss was happy to be a Raider for a while too, actually. He wasn't always selfish. But we in the Silver and Black caught his old self coming back in the post-game interviews. He made a snide shot at the coaching staff, and while few days before, he was talking about how he wanted to retire as Patriot, he made statements that gave hints that it might not be certain.

He'll only be happy if you win.

And no, the Raiders post 2002 Superbowl weren't the best environment for him. We kept losing and losing. But guess what? You're up next for the Superbowl losers curse.

I LOVE FOOTBALL...THIS KIND OF TANTRUM BEHAVIOR IS A PATTERN SEEN REPEATEDLY...MINNESOTA, ( a stepchild of the NFL) SAW THE BEGINNING OF THE LEGACY. RANDY, (said with much infection) WAS EVERYTHING BUT A CLASS ACT; EVEN IF HE DIDNT ACCEPT IT, HE WAS A ROLE MODEL; WITH MUCH WEALTH/POWER COMES MUCH RESPONSIBILITY; PRETTY MUCH A LOSE/LOSE ON ALL ACCOUNTS...
