Moss to Green Bay?

It’s still kind of hard to believe that the Raiders would actually give up Randy Moss for a 3rd round pick and a receiver.  Seems just last season the same team was looking for a 1st round pick in exchange for considerably lesser-valued receiver Joey Porter.  I realize that Moss hates Oakland (with good reason) and that his production will likely continue to dwindle away to nothing if he stays, but this is still the Raiders.  Al Davis is one of the worst owners in the modern history of the NFL.  It seems completely contrary to his management style to give up such a talented player for such a low price.

At any rate, Randy Moss could very well be a Packer this season.  Even if it costs a 2nd round pick, it would be hard to argue that you are getting a much better value with Moss.  This is a player who, back in ’03, averaged OVER 100 yards and 1 TD per game.  With 2 years in the bag with the Raiders, he’s still managed over 1500 yards and 11 TD’s despite having HORRIBLE QB’s and being plagued with injuries and a bad attitude.  Personally, I don’t blame him for the attitude part.  Receivers *might* touch the ball on 5-10% of all offensive plays.  That’s bad enough.  Top that off with being one of the best receivers in the league stuck on a team with no desire to win, no clue who to hire as a coach, an offensive coordinator who was running a bed & breakfast prior to the season start and quarterbacks who would have a hard time getting starting jobs for AA schools… anyone with a passion for the sport would be furious in this situation.  We just have to hope that if Moss somehow lands himself in a Packer uniform that Favre can have a brief career revival along with Moss.  The receiver has easily 4-5+ good years left in him if he can turn his career around.  Favre certainly isn’t afraid to chuck the ball up and pray, and what better target than this guy?  The only real downside… almost $10million owed to him in ’07.  Yikes…
