Randy Moss claimed off waivers by Tennessee Titans

And the winner is ... the Tennessee Titans.

Tennessee claimed wide receiver Randy Moss off the NFL's waiver wire today. Moss' name hit the waiver wire Tuesday when he was released by the Minnesota Vikings after a bizarre series of incidents that began with his outrage over catering in the locker room Friday and ended with a postgame press conference in which he professed his admiration and affection for the New England Patriots, the team that traded him to Minnesota on Oct. 6.

Moss will have five days in which to report to the Titans and indications are he will indeed do so. This is Tennessee's bye week.

Veteran coach, so seems in a better position to keep control of the situation.

Cue the cry baby Skins fans who think we're only 1 washed up diva away from the playoffs...

Eh, they needed the help. Kenny Britt is out for a couple weeks, Nate Washington is no number one and Justin Gage sucks.

As a resident of Tennessee I thought the Titans would go 8 and 8. Now with Moss even that will be a stretch. The last thing this team needs is another Pac Man Jones! It seems some teams never learn their lesson.

I was surprised at how many comments I heard on sports radio and in the sports chat discussions (such as these that follow the stories) that suggested that Moss was the one thing the Redskins needed to ensure getting into the playoffs, if not deep into the playoffs. One player away...just as Albert Haynesworth was the one player they needed last year to make the playoffs...just as Donovan McNabb was the one player they needed this year to turn the team around from what Jason Campbell did to it, and to make the playoffs.
