Hi everyone!! This is my first post on the Pulpit but i've been reading religiously for about a year and I have to say, I am REALLY excited for this year. First, the effort Pat Chung put out yesterday was incredible. Him and Merry Weather have the potential to be a great safety combo for years to come. McCourty and Butler (UCONN!!!) looked fantastic in what has to be a challenging for ANY defensive back in the league, challenging two of the top talents at receiver and doing well to shut them down (for at least a half.) GronkNandez looked fantastic, and also with our revamped tight ends- I must say that trips package with Gronk, Crumpler, and Wes could be a great addition to our repetoire. I wouldn't be surprised to see multiple touchdowns come this year from variations of that package.
And now, to the subject of my article: my man Randy Moss. Most are a little put back by Randy's comment, but I think his case is completely separate from Logan's. First, Randy has done nothing but perform, perform, perform in his time with New England. When we lost Brady for the year, it wasn't only Cassel that stepped up, but also Randy and Welker. There is no way Cassel could have had the season he had offensively without some extra effort from the 8183. Moss has been an incredible asset in the last few years and despite his age, shows no signs of slowing down.
It is this one Pats Fans' opinion that us fans need to step up as a whole and let the organization know just how much Randy means to us. If he's asking for a little love and a three year contract, why the heck can't we give it to him? Moss is a top 3 or four receiver in football, and with Brady recently signed for 4 years, why wouldn't you want to solidify the deep threat for that amount of time? I don't want Sportscenter and ESPN to get ahold of my man and drag his words through the mud! If you read a transcript of what Randy said last night, it's clear that he just needs a little love. A post this morning on PP made some great points, that Moss truthfully loves playing here and just wants to hear "You've done an awesome job for us." Doesn't seem so hard to me.
So this is my call to all you Pats loyals out there- lets let the Pats know how much Randy means to us. I have no idea how we can accomplish that- maybe Tweeter, maybe a grassroots campaigned of t-shirts with some catchy slogan. All I know is that we need to get the message out, for at least Randy to hear- we pay the bills (indirectly), and we'd like some of our ticket stubs to sign your check!
