Randy has made a living off of the Cowboys
Let me put Randy Moss’ career production against the Dallas Cowboys into fantasy football terms:
He has never put up a single digit day and has scored as many as 34 points in a single outing.
For a complete list of Moss’ performances against the Cowboys, head on over to Kevin Seifert’s post by clicking here.
Moss still can’t believe that the Cowboys passed him up in the 1998 NFL Draft and he has revealed a little more about why he was so sure that he would be taken by Dallas eighth overall. Jerry Jones forced Moss to ignore his itinerary a few days prior to the draft and sent him over to the house of Deion Sanders.
“So I thought that was just a way of them telling me we really want you, we’re thinking about drafting you,” Moss said. “So when I was able to talk to Deion Sanders at his house … he just told me how bad the organization wanted me and he thought that me coming there would benefit everybody and things like that. The love that I received and the conversations that I had for those 48 hours had me believing that I was going to be a Dallas Cowboy up ’till draft day.”
The Cowboys instead selected defensive end Greg Ellis.
After that, as you all can probably remember, Moss made it his business to torture all the teams that passed him up by becoming an on-the-field freak, beginning in his rookie season. That was the season that Moss posted three catches, all touchdowns, for 163 yards against none other than the Dallas Cowboys.
“Just seeing her facial expression and how she looked,” Moss said of his mother’s reaction to the Cowboys not selecting her boy. ”I really took that to heart, man, and I told myself any time I play the Dallas Cowboys I’m never going to forget that look.”
Dallas owner Jerry Jones made a pseudo apology last week for passing on Moss in the draft, and while Moss might forgive old Jerry, it doesn’t sound like he plans on letting up this time around.
“I always forgive, man, that’s in the Bible,” he said. “I always forgive but I never forget.”
