Randy Moss: ‘I Don’t Know If I’m Coming Back To The Patriots … I Just Want To Play’
BOSTON (CBS) — A day after announcing he was planning on ending his retirement and returning to the NFL, Randy Moss was back on his Ustream channel on Tuesday morning to answer questions from fans.
Thanks to a boost in viewership in Boston due to some added publicity from Toucher & Rich, Moss received a heavy dose of Patriots-focused questions, including whether he plans to return to New England.
“I don’t know if I’m coming back to the Patriots or not, man,” Moss said. “I just wanna play football.”
Moss was also asked for his thoughts on whether Wes Welker was being treated unfairly for his dropped pass in the Super Bowl this year.
“I just think that players make the catches and players miss the catches so I felt just like everybody else when Wes dropped that ball,” Moss said. “I didn’t want the Giants to win, just redemption from ’07.”
Moss also spoke highly of the late Myra Kraft.
“Myra Kraft was a phenomenal woman,” Moss said. “I still got a picture — you can ask anybody in that organization even Mr. Kraft himself — I got a picture in my house of me and Mrs. Kraft hugging in my Minnesota Vikings uniform when I came back [to Gillette Stadium], and I will cherish that picture.”
The 35-year-old Moss discussed his relationship with Kevin Faulk, which dates back to their high school graduations in 1995. Moss was waiting for Faulk at his home upon returning from the Super Bowl this year, when Faulk wasn’t on the active roster.
“The thing about me and Kevin is when I came in the locker room in New England, Kevin was the first guy I saw and we’ve been hitting it off,” he said. “After not seeing him dress [in the Super Bowl], the best I could do is just show up and be there for him.
“I don’t know how many good things I could say about Kevin Faulk.”
Moss also said he did talk to Tom Brady after this year’s Super Bowl, too.
“Did I talk to Tommy after the Super Bowl? Yeah, but I’m not gonna tell you what we said,” Moss told his Ustream viewers. “It was just nice to hear from each other, man, and I’ll leave it at that.”
He wasn’t restricted to Patriots thoughts only, though, as the topics stretched from Mexican food to Chuck E. Cheese.
Moss said he prefers Chipotle over Qdoba, thanks to his days at Patriot Place.
“Them boys ate Qdoba every doggang Friday in New England and I was tired of that,” Moss said.
Moss told a story of his daughter once being so scared of Chuck E. Cheese that she wanted Moss to beat up the masked rodent.
“Chuck E. Cheese can’t catch 23 touchdowns in a season. No, Chuck E. Cheese can’t,” Moss added. “Man, you never know, Chuck E. Cheese might just suit up.”
Though Moss was out of football in 2011, he did chime in on the season’s hottest story: Tim Tebow.
“What he’s bringing to the table as far as himself, the organization and the Denver Broncos I think is a little bit bigger than football,” Moss said. “I think God has something set up for Tim Tebow, and that’s just coming from my heart.”
