Ryan Wilson of AOL Fanhouse discusses Ron Jaworski's criticisms of Randy Moss, and Tom Brady's laughable reaction to them. What started all this is Jaworski (ESPN's best analyst and the only knowledgeable human being in the MNF booth) called out Randy Moss during the MNF game last week because Randy (eek!) took plays off. Of course, this is nothing new for the rest of us who live on planet Earth. Randy's been doggin' it pretty much his entire NFL career, and it's a big reason why he will never sniff the Hall of Fame, despite all-world talent.
But apparently, Tom Brady took offense to Jaworski's observations in a way that makes me question Brady's sanity or his overall intelligence:
"It bothers me that people take unnecessary shots at him," Brady said. "I don't know what he's done in the past, but he's been great to be around and I think people just like taking shots, unfortunately. If you truly appreciated what he does in his game, then [you wouldn't take shots] ... around us he's a great teammate and everything we're looking for."
I sometimes wonder if Patriots players are as deluded and disconnected from reality as their fanbase sometimes is. Like Wilson, I fully expect Patriots PR representative and HGH doper Rodney Harrison to start barking about how Randy isn't "respected" the way he should be.
