Moss and Pats QB coach Bill O’Brien have halftime shouting match Monday night

The latest saga about the biggest trade of the NFL season to date with Randy Moss going to the Vikings is that Moss and Pats QB coach Bill O’Brien had an argument at halftime on Monday night as he had no catches in the first half, or the game for that matter in the teams 41-14 win.

Wide Receiver Randy Moss and New England Patriots quarterbacks coach Bill O’Brien were involved in a heated exchange at halftime of the team’s victory Monday over the Miami Dolphins, according to player sources. The locker-room exchange, described as an “outburst” by one player, came two days before the Patriots traded Moss to the Minnesota Vikings for a 2011 third-round draft choice, and could have contributed to the team’s decision to make the deal.

The Patriots trailed 7-6 at halftime of the game, and Moss had just one pass thrown in his direction up to that point. He finished without a reception and wasn’t thrown to in the second half. Player sources said the halftime exchange was not the first time they had felt friction between Moss and O’Brien, who calls the offensive plays.
