Talkin’ Bout Willis

I gotta say, there’s nothing like seeing Randy Moss quit on the field live and in person. You can only see so much on TV. Back in 2000, I was on the field level for the NFC title game. The Giants jumped out to an early and expansive lead. Bored, I focused my attention to Moss. I watched him on every play and I can tell you for a fact that Moss quit well before halftime of that game. I fully expect Moss to behave this year and actually try on the field now that he’s in New England and with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. It certainly doesn’t reflect well on Moss, but it’s the reality, and I’ve taken it into consideration when ranking Moss (although I think I’m ranking him lower than pretty much everyone else out there this year).

With Willis McGahee, I feel almost the same way. This is a guy who skipped a lot of voluntary work with the Bills, bashed the city, and displayed attitude problems and voiced contract demands.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]
