Dream On Raiders Fans

Raiders fans have been dreaming of having a receiving corps of Randy Moss and Terrell Owens ever since there were rumors training camp of a possible trade. Those thoughts again danced in the minds of Raiders fans as the enigmatic receiver drew a season-long suspension from the Eagles recently. Think of how wonderful it would be to have both Moss and Owens. Then Kerry Collins would have two receivers to ignore until the game was completely out of reach in the fourth quarter. With Norv Turner's offense genius there would be no way to stop the dream team of Moss and Owens.

Well, except for the fact that Moss does not want to play with Owens.

"With his baggage and everything he's been through, and my baggage and what I've been through, I don't think that would work," Moss said of Owens and him being teammates. "As far as him compared to the league and myself, he don't talk to me, I don't talk to him, so we don't even have a relationship. No communication."

A couple of things here; how far has Owens fallen in the pecking order of the NFL when even Moss is taking shots at him. This is a guy that was dumb enough to admit that he still smokes pot on television, runs over meter maids and even he believes that Owens is a bad guy. When even the most notorious of the inmates believes you are a bad dude, something is wrong.

This also shows Moss' true character and what is really important. Good guy or bad, Owens can play football. Owens will make your team better in the short term. But Moss would not want to sacrifice his own personal statistics for the team to win. Moss is just another Sydney Deane.

Dream on and dive into the Hater Nation forums here. We will not ban you like those kitty kats over at the Raider Forums.
