Randy Moss feels the love for Bill Belichick and Patriots, not so much for Vikings

By Cindy Boren

Randy Moss didn't just take the podium after the Minnesota Vikings lost to the New England Patriots he incinerated it.

Still, it was great theater (watch here) and completely overshadowed the chin boo-boo suffered by Brett Favre.

Moss, traded to the Vikings earlier this season by the Patriots after three years in Boston, wore a black Boston Red Sox hat (after hugging Tom Brady for so long on the field that he practically had to be peeled off the QB). He spoke of his great love for the Patriots and Bill Belichick. Moss, fined $25,000 last week for not cooperating with the media, said he "shed a tear" after Patriots fans applauded him after his one-catch, 8-yard performance in the Vikings' 28-18 loss. He ripped Vikings coach Brad Childress' coaching decision. He ripped his coaches for not listening to his scouting report on the Patriots last week. He said he wouldn't be doing another press conference unless he asked and answered the questions.

And he topped it off with the best departure since Steven Slater.

Saluting the Patriots and Belichick, he said, "I love you guys, I miss you, I'm out."

And with that he was.

What a jerk. One catch for eight yards? That's really showing your stuff, Randy. I cannot believe the Vikings were dumb enough to get stuck with him again.

After his idiotic post game comments, the only shock would've been if the Vikings hadn't waived him. What a horses arse.
