Fun With Real Quotes: Randy Moss vomit edition

One or more of the following quotes are grossly taken out of context for laughs. The true context can be found at the links included within the text. Except for the Brett Favre video. Its context is still a mystery.

By Adam Hart

Vilified. Bad-mouthed. Made to look like a big, fat jerk.

That's what happened in Randy Moss' second go-around with the Minnesota Vikings. But now, nearly a year later, former Vikings head coach Brad Childress is setting the record straight.

In November 2010 the Vikings released Moss. This, after he publicly crooned the Patriots -- his employers just weeks prior -- on the heels of a loss in New England. A report hit the interwebs. It wasn't his betrayal of Chilly that sent Moss packing, but an alleged tirade against catered food.

"What the expletive? Who ordered this crap? I wouldn't feed this to my dog!" Moss yelled after getting a whiff of the locker room grub, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Brett Favre -- yeah, the guy this guy's imitating -- even sprang to the heartbroken caterer's defense, turning his gaze to Moss: "Favre looked at him like, 'Are you kidding me?'"

Guess what, Brett? No. He wasn't kidding you. He was sick. Really, really sick.

"Moss walked in the locker room and vomited on it," Childress admitted in a recent interview with

So the man had a right to be upset with the spread; it made him puke. Funny, how Chilly never came to Moss' defense at the time. Perhaps non-disclosure justified to ownership his unilateral decision to release the nauseous receiver.

This begs the question, however: Getting fired for being sick? Wonder if that's addressed in the new CBA.

Game notes: Patriots 27, Steelers 16

Postgame notes from the Patriots' 27-16 victory over the Steelers, courtesy of the Pats' P.R. department:


-- The Patriots are 6-1 and have won at least six of their first seven games for the eighth time in team history and the sixth time under coach Bill Belichick. The Pats started 7-0 in 2007 and 2015, and 6-1 in 1974, 1980, 2004, 2006, 2010 and 2016.

-- The Patriots extended their franchise record of games at the start of a season without an interception to seven. (The previous team record was four, set last year.) The NFL record is nine, set by the 1960 Browns, and the 2008 Redskins had eight.


-- Rob Gronkowski tied Stanley Morgan's franchise record for most touchdowns (68) and most touchdown receptions (67).

-- The TD pass caught by Gronkowski was the 66th he's caught from Tom Brady, putting the two of them in seventh place in NFL history for most quarterback-to-receiver touchdowns. They trail Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison (112), Steve Young/Jerry Rice (85), Dan Marino/Mark Clayton (79), Philip Rivers/Antonio Gates (79), Drew Brees/Marques Colson (72) and Manning/Reggie Wayne (67). Sunday's Brady-to-Gronkowski TD broke a tie at 65 with Jim Kelly/Andre Reed.

-- Gronkowski now has 5,930 career receiving yards, 14th-best among tight ends in NFL history. His 93 yards Sunday moved him past Todd Heap (5,869) and Todd Christensen (5,872).

-- LeGarrette Blount rushed for 127 yards, his third 100-yard game of the season and 13th of his career.
