Packers trading for Moss

21 posts in this topic

Word on the street is that Packers are making a trade offer to Oakland for Randy Moss. Kind off surprising considering no one on the GB wagon will admit to liking the guy.

What do you guys think?

I think I'll haved a tough time seeing my favorite player in the enemies colors. I hope it falls through.

Even when Moss is not " playing " they have to respect his ability and double cover him . Driver and Jennings are drooling over the prospect of Moss coming in and freeing them up . Packer fans don't like Moss cause he was a Viking , thats all . Like it or not Packer fans Randy Moss could make your team a contender again . Your defense wasn't horrible and your " O " line was young and will get better . With Moss , Driver & Jennings and a line that could give Favre a few seconds to find those guys - wow .

As a vikings fan the thought of Favre to Moss is a scary one. I think the two of them would make a pretty good team. It would be fun to see him in green and gold after he "mooned" the crowd. I think that w/ a leadership figure like Favre, he should be able to keep Randy's head on straight!

Boo! We made a big mistake by trying to keep Culpepper and getting rid of Moss. Bring him back to Purple. Moss in Green and Gold might kill me, even though he's lost at least a step from his prime.

I thought it was a HUGE mistake to let Moss go and I would LOVE for him to come back to MN . We need a reciever , why wouldn't we go after him ?

Would love to see Moss in the green! would be a wasted position for the packers. Not to mention the distraction in the clubhouse. Moss was let go for a reason. He was losing his skills and it sure showed at Oakland

Its hard to say what is true and what is rumor out there right now. I've read a million different variations on this story. What is fact is that the Packers are interested if they could get him for the right price. TT is not in a hurry though, as the longer he waits, the better deal he may get. Al Davis wants a 1st or maybe 2nd rounder, but with Moss not wanting to be there anymore, the price may go down as the summer approaches. I would bet that TT low-balled him with something along the lines of a 3rd round pick and Ferguson...also with the deal being contingent that Randy agrees to restructure his contract. Davis won't bite on that yet, but doesn't have a lot of bargaining power. Now TT can sit back and say, "take it or leave it" and see what happens come draft day. Again, this is my GUESS of where it is at.

Personally, I don't ever want to see him in green and gold. Too much of a distraction. What happens when Favre throws to old reliable Driver when Moss is open (or thinks he is)? He'll start complaining and taking plays off as usual. I say pass on him, hope for Jennings to have a break out year and then possibly get Koren back by the end of September. (I can't believe I just said that. crazy.gif)

Harlan (Packers CEO) said yesterday that the phone calls and emails he is getting from fans are about 60/40 against trading for Moss.

KFAN just said it was really close to being done on PA and Dubay. Aaron Rodgers, a conditional pick, possibly more for Moss. 95% chance it will be done by tomorrow, said Mike Florio, profootball dot you know what.

Start burning your Vikings Moss jerseys.

"Yo, what up Green Bay"

So if they do pull the trade for moss and get rodger's in return who do they take #1 overall in the draft? Calvin Johnson?

Ya Calvin and then they'd be set on offense with what's supposed to be a good young QB and the offensive stud of the draft. Of course it would leave the Pack up Poo-creak next year when Favre is done...

Nothing wrong with that grin.gif!!! Then moss would be on another team with no QB and sulk all year long!! I still will hate seeing Moss in a Pack uniform.

Thompson and Harlan are saying its all rumors. There are stories on about every football site right now saying the deal is all but done, however. Someone leaked something and the you-know-what hit the fan. Harlan says he knows nothing and Thompson just said in a press report, "We will chalk this one up to wild speculation."

If the pack gets moss. It will be one washed up player catching a pass from another washed up player. RETIRE

I would love to see Moss/Favre combo. Favre still has his arm and Moss still can catch. Can he run? IDK I think his hamstring must be healed by now. He seems to be a bargain if you trade a 3rd round draft pick. He would have some leadership something he did not have in Oakland. Also, he can moon Cheeseheads every week if he wants to.

Don't be hate'n fellas. Farve loves to throw the deep ball (up for grabs lots of times) and Moss excells at the catching such said pass. I think it's a good fit. True Moss is a cancer, so hopefully the packers win and Moss catches lots of passes.

      We survived our trip!  LOL   Fishing was steady.   We caught 30 walleyes in 3 days of fishing.  Usually fished from 11 am to 4 pm.  The 'eyes were running small, lots of 11 to 13 3/4" fish, but we did get 3 keepers.  We also kept a few nice perch and crappies.  We also caught a few snake northerns.   Jigging w/ chubs produced the best, but I did catch a few 'eyes on the crawler lindy rig combo.  Mid lake structure and underwater points off of islands all produced fish.  Mayflys were hatching, but the fish were still hungry. I did catch a 4-5 lb channel cat in the Savanna River one evening.   We stayed in the south loop of the Army Corp campground.  We liked that we were w/in about 30 yds of our boat which we kept at the dock.  The river on the north side of us and the lake on the south side offered a nice breeze to keep things cool and the bugs away for the most part.  Con's were the campsites are small and were too close together.  Also no turn around at the end of the south loop road.  The north loop was beautiful, spacious campsites, but surrounded by swamp and we heard the skeeters were bad at dusk.  Definitely want some thermacells or a screen tent to enjoy the evening by the sounds of things.  Also the docks aren't close/in view of the campsites.   We would definitely stay there again, on the north loop, in May or Sept. after the skeeters have died down a bit.   Staff was friendly, shower houses were nice, boat landings were nice.     Brian

      Just got back from our 34th annual Grand Marais trip. Weather, and how bad it was, was the theme. At one point or another, it rained every single day we were there! The wind was miserable he last couple days as well. Really affected our fishing plans, as we had to cancel out on some of our normal lakes, and fish some less than desirable backup lakes.   As per tradition, we left in the middle of the night and pulled up to the Lester River just a few minutes before sunrise. Didn't catch anything there. Also got skunked at the Talmadge and French rivers. I got free admission at Tom's logging camp on account it was Father's Day  and as always, kids had fun feeding the animals. I did catch a few little rainbows out of sucker, knife, and Stewart rivers. Had our traditional "fisherman's breakfast" at McDonalds in Two Harbors. We stopped at the silver creek tunnel, and that was the first time I've been at the overlook since it was actually part of the highway back in '94. We rolled into Grand Marais at about 3:30 and had to wait out a rain storm before putting the boat out on Kimball Lake. We lost several trout, and in the end, only my 6 year old son caught 2 rainbows.   Monday we fished Greenwood Lake, and as was the case with my 2 older kids, my 3 year old daughter caught her very first fish here...a smallmouth bass! Between all of us, we caught about 130 bass, all of which were pretty small. Unfortunately no lake trout. However, a big surprise occurred...while casting for bass, I caught a herring! Then a few minutes later, my son caught one also! Never would have guessed I'd ever catch one in the summer, let alone 2!   Fished a "secret lake" on Tuesday and caught quite a few northerns. They were all either 5 pounds, or 6 inches long, nothing in between. My son caught an 8 pound, 33 incher, which ended up being the biggest fish of the trip. We was screaming, and excited, and wanted me to take his fishing pole. But after about 10 minutes he finally got it in so I could net it. He's still bragging about it. My 3 year old also caught her 2nd ever fish, a perch, which ended up being the only one of the trip.   Went up to Saganaga on Wednesday. I spent I don't know how many hours trying to catch lake trout, but didn't find any!  Finally gave up and ventured deep into red rock bay for the first time ever. Really nice back there, wish I would've went there first. Fishing was ok, considering the weather was starting to get bad. Caught the biggest bass of the trip, a hair over 18 inches. On the drive back we seen a bear. Ironically it was walking down the road to black bear lodge at Poplar Lake.   Biggest disappointment came on Thursday. The plan was to fish both Hungry Jack and West Bearskin lakes. The wind was terrible, and coming straight from the west. Had hungry jack not had the reputation as a big bass producer, I wouldn't have went here. Unfortunately the big bass weren't around, nor any bass for that matter. Only caught 4 small bass. Kids caught about a dozen or so sunnies from the dock at the resort, some of which were decent size. We didn't even bother with bearskin. There's no way we would be able to launch our boats in that wind. We went to Loon Lake instead. In the limited time we were there, we caught about 30 tiny bass. My 9 year old daughter also caught her first rock bass. I tried for lakers, and marked a lot of them, but didn't catch any.    So since we didn't fish West Bearskin as planned, we penciled it in for Friday. Knowing the weather was going to be bad, we picked Poplar Lake as our backup. I drove up to Mayhew Lake to start, because I wanted to check out the launch. I was able to get my boat down the launch, but it was a real tight fit. Nice little lake. We saw a mommy moose with 2 babies laying right on the shoreline. I got sick of trolling, so I decided to cast cranks along the drop offs of the one small stretch of shoreline that was out of the wind (relatively speaking). Hooked into a big fish! Got excited because I thought I finally had a lake trout! It was a northern!  never thought I'd be disappointed in catching a 5.5 pound pike, but that's what I was. Didn't bother going to Bearskin, as I knew the wind was too bad again. Went to Poplar, which is a lake I do not like! As is typical, the fishing was no good! He weather was bi polar! It would be bright and sunny, then rain for 20 minutes. Did that the whole rest of the day! Only caught 1 little pike and  1 little bass. Got excited for a minute, as whitefish started surfacing around my boat in the evening. I was hoping I could catch 1 or 2, but nope!    Saturday we were supposed to fish Two Island for a few hours before going home. But it was pouring rain. We didn't even bother driving around to different boat launches. So the trip ended on a sour note, but we still had lots of fun, seen a moose, had our donuts (I highly recommend the bacon maple longjohn by the way), and went to Sven & Ole's. I was going to go camping in Ely in July, but I think we'll come back to Grand Marais instead, and try to make up for what we missed out on due to the weather. IMG_6122.MOV

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
