No quit in Moss -- at least this time

Randy Moss has quit before. He's quit on plays. On a series. Or two. Or three. Or a few dozen. He's quit on seasons. He's quit on teams.

But I refuse to believe Moss will go out this way. His reported retirement should be taken extremely lightly. The first major injury a team gets, Moss will be back. The first time any team calls and feeds Moss' ego, he'll be back.

Team: "Randy, we need you."
Moss: "You do, really?"
Team: "Yes."
Moss: "Sign me up."

Moss is a moody and emotional superstar. He's likely ticked that no team was breaking down his doors to sign him. In speaking to people around football before his alleged retirement, there was little interest in signing Moss to big money. Or even medium money. Teams were trying to get Moss on the cheap, and that probably ticked him off to no end. So he huffed and quit. Because that's what Moss does. He quits and comes back, quits and comes back.

And he'll be back again.

Vikings: One team, two jerks

Brett Favre acts like a petulant child and is rewarded with an exit out of Green Bay and eventually lands with a near Super Bowl team in Minnesota.

Randy Moss acts like a petulant child -- many times -- and ends up with Favre in Minnesota.

The NFL is fantastic.

Two jerks, one city, not enough ego to go around.

Only in sports are jerks repeatedly rewarded despite their childish behavior. Moss and Favre are no different.

The irony here is unavoidable. Moss was cast out of Minnesota because he drove his car into a meter maid and quit the team. Now he's back years later after having more problems in New England.

Bill Belichick wouldn't trade Moss now unless Belichick believed he couldn't get the most out of Moss for the remainder of the season. This trade isn't Belichick being efficient. This is Belichick worried Moss would destroy his locker room. After all, Moss has destroyed locker rooms before.

Two jerks, one team.

Good luck, Vikings.

You're going to need it.
