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.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
