Welcome to Minnesota, Randy Moss.
Playing in his second-straight “Monday Night Football” game, the wide receiver had four catches for 81 yards and caught Brett Favre’s 500th career touchdown, but the Vikings lost 29-20 to the New York Jets.
According to KARE reporter Dave Schwartz, Mossa at first refused to talk after the game and cursed at reporters.
Somewhere Bill Belichick is sitting in a hoodie and laughing his ass off if that report is true.
New England all knows something we don’t know when it comes to Moss, which is why the organization didn’t think twice when presented with the opportunity to trade him.
I failed to mention that the Vikings are now 1-3 and take on 1-3 Dallas next Sunday.
This could be the first of many Moss blow ups at this rate…

In this week’s episode of “Why Braylon Edwards is a Dummy,” the New York Jets wide received issed an apology for his DUI arrest on Tuesday morning.
I would like to apologize to my family, my fans, Mr. Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum, Rex Ryan and my teammates.I will respect the process that is in place and will fully cooperate with the league.
I am truly happy to be a member of the New York Jets and I hope I have the opportunity to retire here. I now have to regain the trust of my teammates, the organization and the fans.
Braylon’s beard had no comment on the arrest.
If a possible suspension from the NFL wasn’t bad enough, there’s a chance Edwards could face jail time if convicted on his DUI charge.
“The judge has been notified, pending the outcome of his case,” said Ed Ferenc, public information officer at Cleveland Municipal Court. ”If he’s found guilty, he will be called back to Cleveland and faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.”

Anyone who watched two seconds of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” knows New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has a filthy mouth.
A filthy f’ing mouth if you get my drift.
While profanity is the norm for a majority of professional coaches, former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy said on The Dan Patrick Show last week that if he were in charge, he wouldn’t hire someone like that.
Well, needless to say, the Incredible Shrinking Fat Man was upset with Dungy’s comments.
“I’ve been a big admirer of Tony Dungy, and I’m sure a lot of people are, but he unfairly judged me, and that was disappointing to me,” said Ryan. “I’m always going to be myself and I’m a good person. Just because somebody cusses doesn’t make him a bad person. Just because a guy doesn’t cuss doesn’t make him a good person. I’ll stand by my merits.”
I can’t knock Dungy for being a Christian, but not hiring someone over their language is, well, pretty f’ing dumb if you ask me.
Sometimes a coach needs to be colorful with his language in order to get a point across to his team. In fact, same thing applies in the workplace.
Here’s hoping Ryan doubled the number of profanities just for Dungy.

From Giant Blue to Jets Green?
Well, that is if Plaxico Burress can avoid Prison Pinstripes.
The New York Jets contacted Plaxico Burress’ agent before the NFL Draft this past weekend.
Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez, who the Jets traded up to select on Saturday, could use a 6-foot-5 target to throw to on Sundays.
With the Jets lacking experienced wide outs aside from Jerricho Cotchery, it’s no surprise they are showing interest in Burress, despite his legal woes.
Plaxico should have a better idea of if he will be able to play during the 2009 season after his June 15 court date.
His attorneys have been working on a plea agreement for Burress’ gun charges stemming from last year’s incident at a NYC nightclub.
But let’s be honest, even if Plaxico can skate past the New York D.A., he still has to get past NFL commish Roger Goodell.
Is Plaxico Burress worth the headache for the New York Jets?

“We’re a team and we win together … but at the same time, you can’t turn the ball over and expect to win. The other day, the three interceptions really hurt us. I mean, that’s just reality. If I were to sit here and say, ‘Oh, man, it’s okay,’ that’s not reality. The reality is, you throw interceptions, I’m (ticked) off, I don’t like it. You know what I’m saying? I don’t like it, I know everybody else on the team doesn’t like it.”

And let the finger-pointing begin.
