Brett Favre stands to benefit more than anyone from the addition of Randy Moss to the Vikings‘ offensive mix. Now, instead of trying to force the ball downfield to turds like Hank Baskett and Bernard Berrian, Favre will have a Hall of Fame receiver to heave it up to in his moments of gunslingery desperation.
Whether this ends up actually working out is something we won’t know for a few weeks at least. For now, all is happiness and sunshine and quotes like this from the Vikings quarterback:
This is an exciting move, I think everybody feels that in the locker room. It’s rare you get to play with a future Hall of Famer and get to appreciate their talents up close. Randy Moss is a great player and his career speaks for itself. I’ve admired him from a distance for a long time and you can’t help but be impressed by the guy.
Is there anything lovelier than the honeymoon period after a big trade? Everybody loves everybody.
We’ll see how Favre and Moss feel about each other, and how both feel about Brad Childress and Darrell Bevell, at the end of the season.
