This must be dump on Randy Moss week.
The recently retired receiver must certainly feel that way, too.
Just days after Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice ripped Moss for his lack of work ethic, former Minnesota Viking coach Brad Childress expressed regret for bringing Moss into the locker room last season. Moss’ reunion with his former team lasted just four games before he was sent packing.
"We had good guys, by and large," Childress said to NFL.com, "[but Moss] walked in the locker room and vomited on it."
The Moss who showed up was nothing close to the contrite one Childress talked on the phone with prior to joining the team. Moss has always been the type of player who wears his feelings on his sleeve and that can cause problems in a locker room when statements are made during emotional moments.
The Vikings were 1-3 when they acquired Moss and they were 1-3 during his four-game stay.
"He called me and said, 'I can't wait, I can't wait. I feel like I'm coming home again,' " Childress recalled.
But it should be remembered that Childress might have a bit of an ax to grind with Moss because of how the coach handled the awkward departure. Childress took some heat and perhaps hastened his ouster by not informing Vikings owner Zygi Wilf before cutting Moss.
"I should have gone up the chain," Childress to NFL.com.
