The dangerous duo of Johnson-Moss has Titans fans thinking Super Bowl
Newly acquired receiver Randy Moss arrived early to work in Tennessee on Monday and is expected to start this weekend against the Miami Dolphins.
Moss was released by the Vikings and signed by the Titans last week and will have a limited role this week in Miami. ESPN reported that Moss will learn one position and will learn as much of the offense as he can.
The outspoken receiver talked to the media Wednesday after practice in brief. How much Moss will talk from here on out, after answering only a few questions from the media Wednesday, is unknown at this point. Short, simple, and sweet.
“Moss said, he doesn’t make this a Super Bowl team”
“He is used to the pressure and hopes to fit in however Coach Fisher wants to use him.”
“Moss said, he isn’t coming here to start trouble”
“and hopes to win….and then walked off.”
The Titans provided this information on Moss
- In his four previous games debuting with a new team, including two games with Minnesota separated by nine year, Moss has averaged 122 yards a game with a 22.2 yards-per-catch average and at least one touchdown (five total).
- Moss has been part of four teams with a top 10 rushing offense: the 2000 Vikings (sixth, led by Robert Smith), the 2002 Vikings (first led by Michael Bennett), the 2003 Vikings (fourth, led by Moe Williams) and the 2008 Patriots (sixth, led by Sammy Morris). Led by Chris Johnson, the Titans currently rank second. But one of their major motivations in claiming Moss was to help stretch defenses and gain more room for Johnson.
- Three catches for Moss will give him 951 for his career and tie him with Andre Reed for eighth all-time on the NFL reception leaders list. Of the top 10, Moss has the best average (15.6) with No. 7 Isaac Bruce second, with a 14.9-yard average on 1,024 catches.
