FOXBORO, Mass. -- One thing you can say about Randy Moss: The guy isn't boring.
The Minnesota Viking's talented but enigmatic wide receiver took the podium in Foxboro, Massachusetts after Sunday's 28-18 loss to the Patriots and spoke about a number of things, most not relating at all to the game.
To start off with, Moss told reporters that he will no longer be doing conventional interviews with reporters.
"Look, I get fined $25,000 for not talking to y'all. Me, personally, I don't care, at the same time I do answer questions throughout the week, for the league to fine me $25,000 I'm not answering any more questions for the rest of this year," he said.
"If it's an interview "I'm" going to conduct it, so I'll answer my own questions, ask myself the questions and then give y'all the answers."
When asked about the game, Moss didn't say much about his 1 catch performance or quarterback Brett Favre being knocked out of the game. All he seemed to want to do is talk about how much he missed being a member of the Patriots.
"I miss these guys, man. I miss the team. It was hard for me to come here and play, been up and down roller coaster emotionally all week," he insisted. "I miss the hell out of em', every last helmet in that locker room."
And even though a reported feud with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was behind Moss's trade from New England to the Vikings, Moss gushed over the Patriots coach 'and' the team's fans.
"Coach Belichick gave me the opportunity to be part of something special, and that's something I really really take to heart."
"To the New England Patriot fans, that ovation at the end of the game, that felt heartwarming. I think I actually shed a tear for that."
While Moss didn't directly blast his new head coach Brad Childress he did hint that the Vikings did not use his insight into the formations , plays and schemes the Patriots might show.
"You have six days to prepare for a team and on the seventh day, that's Sunday, meaning today, I guess they come over to me and say 'Dang Moss, you was right about a couple plays, schemes they was gonna run. "
