so let's see, who did we get for trading randy moss?

two impressive lb's and the 7th pick which looks likely to produce someone very special.

we did fine. and oakland did fine too. ultimately, that's what trades should be.

we did not get two LB's
the seventh round pick is our pick this way oaklands seventh round is higher up than ours so we don't know who we'll get with that one yet

sure we got two lb's for moss. or, as a result of trading moss.

napoleon harris and because we obtained oakland's 7th round in the moss trade, we were willing to trade ours to the jets for another linebacker.

I guess if you want to look at it that way
but what we pick up in the seventh round + harris and the overall #7 is truely what we got in the moss trade
but I'm cool with your outlook Cool

we have to leave moss behind at some time, all of us have to, including me.

he'll just be a great player we had for awhile some day, like carter.

I liked moss for his big play but mostly for his cherity work

one the feild honestly he would take plays off knock balls down instead of taking the hit , not stick to his routs
if he played 100% all the time would would have already won a SB

I'm moving on burleson's the man now
(I still have my #80 jersey that I wear) carter was the man his sideline catches would blow me away

Here here Helter. CC is still my favorite Viking of all time. His shoestring catches consistently brought tears to my eyes. The man was amazing. Just hearing MW compared to him makes me want to trade up to #1 to get him.

Speaking of Moss taking plays off, knocking balls down, and not going all out for many balls, I think he did those things because he's skinny and not able to take a real hit - he'd be out of football if he didn't protect himself. So, I don't think playing 100% would have brought Minny a super bowl. I love Moss's skills, but truth is he has significant limitations.

ah c'mon you guys are forgetting the best carter....Anthony Carter! Laughing nah i know cris was the best, but anthony was my first favorite and will always have a special place in my heart. And yeah moss is gone we have to deal. If your a viking fan you can't love the players, you have to love the purple and gold, cause these days the players run through the leauge like water.

Dont forget that Moss is getting old, great trade. We get two proven LB's and #7 overall for an aging WR with attitude problems.
