Randy Moss is a Titan

Posted November 3rd, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Randy Moss has been awarded to the Tennessee Titans off waivers. The Titans were 22nd in line to nab him meaning the 21 teams ahead of them passed on the opportunity to bring in Moss. The team is on a bye this weekend which will allow time to integrate Moss and get him settled.

Though not one of the teams initially linked to Moss he could take their offense to another level. With Chris Johnson at RB (98 overall rating), a dynamic QB in Vince Young (81 overall), and an emerging Kenny Britt (84 overall) to line up across from him after recovering from his injury, adding Moss introduces a whole new weapon for opposing defenses to have to account for. In Madden 11 Moss currently has a 95 overall rating with 96 speed and the perfect 100 rating in spectacular catch. Expect his ratings to drop a bit though after lackluster performances with the Vikings and really throughout the whole season.

Of course the very same thing was said about Moss being added to the Vikings offense with playmakers such as Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin around him. It will be interesting to see if Moss buys into the team or if he ruins what could be a promising season for the Titans.

What do you think of Tennessee bringing in Randy Moss? Continue on for more screenshots of him as a Titan and leave your thoughts in the comments!

      FUCK RANDY MOSS AND THE TITANS!!!

      Randy Moss is still a cancer and Vince Young still can’t throw. This relationship is going nowhere. I like both of these guys but this pairing does not make sense.

        Maybe you should look at the Passer Ratings in the NFL this season…Vince Young has the #1 passer rating…Get your facts straight

          MAn you are using passer rating as evidence of being a great QB? Tell me how many passes VY has thrown? How many yards? What rank is he in yards/attempts?

          • Thomp

            A high passer rating in one season doesn’t necessarily indicate a great quarterback, but it does indicate a great performance on the season. It is a RATING after all; it’s not just a number there for shits and giggles. Rating aside, VY has thrown 9 TDs and he’s thrown fewer picks on the season than many of the historically elite QBs(Brees, Favre, Eli Manning) have thrown in a single game. He has a completion percentage of less than 60% in only two of seven games, and his receivers have six or more drops in both of those games. He does have 998 yards on only 122 attempts, but considering he’s missed one game, left two early, and played hurt in three, on top of having arguably the best running back in the league getting 25-30 carries per game, the low number of attempts only makes sense. VY hasn’t proven that he’s a great career quarterback, but only a moron can deny that he’s throwing the ball with the best of them this season.

            A QB can dink and dunk his way to a good passer rating. Gain some perspective son. The Titans is Chris Johnsons team, not Vince Youngs. You had better come to grips with that. The Titans will only go as far as Chris Johnsons legs will take them.

            Vince Young is nothing more than a game manager. There are no expectations placed on him. He is the Trent Dilfer of his generation. “Just don’t lose the game for us Vince and we will be fine”.

            Randy Moss does’nt across the middle and do the dink and dunk shit. We’ll see how well VY gets him the deep ball.

            The clown was yanked for Kerry Collins this year too. Vince Young is a bust and Kerry Collins is a old drunk. Sorry Titan fans, but your time is past.

          • Thomp

            Forget the passer rating and just look at each individual stat I put up there, while keeping in mind that he’s only played two full games while fully healthy. 60% completion(including the two games with 6+ drops), 4.5 TD to pick ratio, 6 of 7 games with at least one passing TD, 6 of 7 games without a pick. 253 yards and two TDs in his last game DESPITE 6 drops and leaving injured at the beginning of the 4th quarter. You just can’t argue that he’s not throwing the ball well. Sure, CJ helps him out by compressing the defense…so? If he’s taking care of the ball and scoring points through the air, what else matters? And if you still think he can’t make any throw he needs to… have you even watched him play this season? Just go back and watch any post-game highlights. You can point to Game 2 when he was benched, but what was he benched for? Two picks and a fumble. Drew Brees: 4 picks and a fumble against the Browns. Eli Manning: 3 picks and 2 fumbles against the Cowboys; neither benched. If Vince was playing on either of those teams or many others in the league, he wouldn’t have been benched either, but it made sense because Kerry Collins is above average in both ability and experience for a backup QB(note that I said BACKUP). Every QB has a bad game, just not all teams have the luxury of a viable backup. VY isn’t the best, but he’s not nearly as bad you all want to make him out to be. Give him a chance and actually watch him play before you trash him.

          Since when does passer rating ever equate to Superbowl Wins………………. Time to come back to reality Mile.

        Hey… three words bro… go fuck yourself. The titans are way better than any faggy team you probably like. With a name like Amen_Ra, you probably like some faggy sport like cricket. Moss is gonna open up shit so that Chris Johnson can jerk off on the field. All Is Not Mossed!!!

          Grow the fuck up Diesel. The Titans are irrelevant with the exception of Chris Johnson. Get a clue. The AFC South belongs to Peyton Manning and will continue to as long as Manning is still breathing.

        Hey, and don’t forget that the drunk Kerry Collins will likely be lying flat on his back most of the time too. If Moss couldn’t thrive with the gun slinger, Brett Favre then Moss cant thrive anywhere but at home on his couch watching real players play the game.

        Moss is a bust anywhere he goes. Maybe he should try out for the Canadian Football league.

      • Hmrnhtr

        yur definently wrong with yur facts on his throwing ability. maybe instead of comparing him to peyton manning, phillip rivers, and aaron rodgers, compare him to what he was in the past. last season and majority of this season proves he can throw, and he is finally starting to take chances down the field

      How many Superbowls has Randy Moss Won…………Zero. How many Superbowls has Terrell Owens won…………Zero. Two of the biggest Diva pain in the ass wide outs who essentially don’t do anything for a team but complain and create dysfunction in the locker room and on the field.

      How many superbowls did the Pats win with out having big name wide outs vs with Randy Moss…………..I rest my case. The NFL is a different animal now. You don’t need a guy who can only run the go route. This is why guys like Wes Welker, Danny Woodhead are thriving in the NFL. If you can’t can’t come across the middle then you are a waste of space. Moss will be taken out of the equation in every game he plays so the Titans better have other means to beat you. Sure, Randy will be good for a touchdown here and there, but he doesn’t have Tom Brady throwing to him any more either.

      Moss to the Titans is a non factor especially when Chris Johnson will be running the ball down the throat of NFL defenses. How do you think Randy Moss will like that…………He won’t.

    i already used the titans in ranked before now with moss lol hang it up the run and gun playbook just got a bit more deadlier lol

  • NYTITAN21

    i love it. If moss shows half of what he did with NE he will be a monster in Tennessee… lets see how quick you faggots back outta a ranked game when you see the Titans sitting on the other side.

      No word on this yet. Generally if its not in by Wed morning they can’t get a move in, but this might be significant enough that they’d hold it back for the news.

  • Jdowdy10

    As a Titans fan I’m apprehensive yet happy. We need a threat in the passing game besides Kenny Britt. I think it balances out the offense well…if Moss isn’t acting a donkey.

    I’m a bit surprised he dropped to us. Hopefully Fisher can wrangle Moss and make him realize that they have been an overachieving franchise for a while that just hasn’t had all the pieces to get it done, and that if Moss plays to his potential, they may have a crack at this thing.

    I sure hope this works out but from watching last weeks game against the Chargers I’m sure the Titans organization realized the same thing I did…they just aren’t quite there yet. Hopefully this gets them closer or even to the top.

          They don’t mention Merriman because he’s sorry! He has 4 sacks in 2.5 years. Ever since he stopped taking roids he hasn’t been the same player. I hope he plays this year so when he plays the Dolphins later on this season Jake Long can rape him all day..

        • Hmrnhtr

          merriman hasnt had a lot of headlines all season…especially compared to moss. i dont think u can go through 10 minutes on sportscenter without hearing randy moss nowadays

  • Joeyland

    Lower his route running, 95 is crazy

    • jbb34

      Another reason the Madden Ratings “czar” Donny Moore is an idiot. Moss has never been a good route runner. He’s a vertical threat and can run the vertical routes better than anyone in the NFL. But if you want a guy to run a great route across the middle and pick up a first down for you, Randy Moss is not that guy. His route running should be in the low 80s or high 70s. All he is and has ever been is a phenomenal deep threat.

  • http://twitter.com/foocards88 Craig Cutler

    Why is everyone just assuming MOSS IS BACK BABY! This is the lowest talent level he’s played with all season. What makes anyone think he will play hard in Tennessee.

  • Mark Anthony

    Obviously Randy Moss has potential. Its his attitude that usually screws him up though.. If he’s not careful..he will be another Pac Man Jones who got bounced from team to team until he was begging to be accepted. Hopefully he left his attitude in Minnesota. But personally, I think he is being used for a couple of games until Kenny Britt can return..then it’s back to waivers..lol.. GO TITANS!!!

  • me

  • sheredia

    does HE want to be there is the question……..and will they throw him the ball? the vikings should have been a good fit with favre and all, but he must have rubbed some people the wrong way there. he would have been better off staying in new england if he hadn’t complained, at least he was getting the ball on a regular basis with brady and his numbers were pretty good. it sounds like he really misses new england now…..be careful what you wish for, randy.

  • Yezurrrrrr

    well, this makes sense. Tennessee is the ONLY other place Moss could’ve went to. Jeff Fisher is the ONLY other coach in the league who can and should be respected by Randy. If Moss blows this.. his NFL days are over

  • Jdowdy10

    By the way, for anyone who cares, Vince Young CAN throw the deep ball. I would contend it is the only ball he can throw with pinpoint accuracy. Since incomplete passes don’t make Sportscenter most of the world didn’t get to see the end of the game versus Denver.

    After Mariani blew the kickoff and Denver scored Vince got the ball back with a little under thirty seconds left. Vince threw two deep balls that were right on the money which were dropped by Titans wideouts. Hell, Britt would still be running right now if he would have caught that ball (it went right in between his arms when he tried a basket catch) because it went right between a safety and corner.

    Also, ask the Cowboys secondary how good Vince can throw the deep ball. They learned the hard way.

    Moral of the story, stop watching/listening to Sportscenter analysts to make your opinions about players. I’m a firm believer that if you want a good opinion about a player ask a fan of the team. They’re gonna tell you what makes them good and where they are lacking. Just too much information and games for one analysts to watch to make informed opinions.

  • Dre2daday

    All moss has to do is come and play hard…the defense cant stack the box but if they do creep up…Vince CAN throw deep to em…and i dont have to really worry bout Moss dropping anything.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Corey-Ragland/13752595 Corey Ragland

    This is definitely a surprise, especially considering the uncertainty that seems to go on at QB. Perhaps Jeff Fisher can get him to play. I think this move is driven by the concern of falling behind Indianapolis And Houston in the AFC South

  • Nphillyk

    I agree with Pasta on this one. This could be a great fit with Chris Johnson in the backfield and Britt when he returns from injury. The TItans will have no shortage of playmakers at that point. However, the same could have been said of him returning to Minnesota. That situation SHOULD have worked out with Favre at the helm, Percy Harvin, and the All World Adrian Peterson running the ball. Personally I just think that something happened early on between Moss and Childress that led to those uninspired performances by Randy. Hopefully he’ll have a good working relationship with Fisher and us fans can see some explosive football. Note: I am NOT, and NEVER will be a Tennessee fan. I am only speaking as a football fan.

  • FireWyre

    He will be a stud, he better be, he is on my fantasy team! When is madden going to get rid of alll the boring animation in between plays. Gameplay only makes an online matchup 30 minutes if both players are using gameplay, most don’t and scroll through plays. So why don’t they just take away all the dumb closeups of the coaches breathing, all we want is competition!!! NBA 2k11 does the same same thing with subsitituions!!!! MLB 2k10 got it right! All Action All the Time!!!!
