On Wednesday's edition of PFT Live, Pro Football Talk's daily webcast, Titans coach Mike Munchak said it "remains to be seen" if Randy Moss will be part of the new regime in Tennessee. Most likely, "it remains to be seen" is code for "are you out of your mind?!"As Gregg Rosenthal points out, Moss caught six passes for 80 yards in eight games with the Titans. And despite all Jeff Fisher's bouquets about what a great mentor and teammate Moss was during his time with the Titans (similar to Bill Belichick's bouquets, although Fisher's had little moustaches on them), Moss was an abject failure there, in Minnesota and in his four games with New England in 2010. Because of Moss' Halloween Ode to all things Patriots in his final game with the Vikings, it's reasonable to presume he'll target New England as a possible landing spot. Likelihood? Between slim and none. And closer to none. Despite Tom Brady's kind words about Moss as a teammate, he was all set with Moss once the Week 2 loss to the Jets went down. That was the game in which Moss was targeted 10 times and caught two passes. Brady threw two picks on passes intended for Moss - half of his 2010 total. Moss' field-stretching ability remains. So too does his patience-stretching ability. And though the Patriots were able to keep a cork on the bottle for virtually his entire stay here, if New England brought Moss back at a minimum contract with a reduced role, it's hard to imagine him being a productive member of the team. Remember, when Moss passed through waivers after the Vikings released him, only the Titans put out a claim on him. He'll likely have even fewer suitors after his time in Tennessee. Tom E.
