Randy Moss doesn't think Cordarrelle Patterson is worthy of number 84

Moss, in what will hopefully become a new catchphrase for him: "What can I say? I'm just Randy Moss sitting here in the studio."
Randy Moss is no longer playing in the NFL, but he's taken up a new line of work this season as an in-studio analyst for Fox's Sunday morning football coverage.

Before the disappointing Vikings-Lions game yesterday (well, disappointing for Purple fans, at least), Moss was asked how he felt about first-round pick Cordarrelle Patterson wearing the number 84 Randy made famous during his historic rookie season back in 1998. Suffice it to say he's not a fan.

"That's disrespectful to give a rookie my number," Moss said. "I don't really believe in numbers but from a professional standpoint, I did make that number. He hasn't proven anything yet but hey what can I say? I'm just Randy Moss sitting here in the studio."

Indeed -- during his first game, Patterson wasn't worthy of number 84. He played just a handful of plays and ended up with one catch for 10 yards. By comparison, Moss put up 95 yards and two touchdowns in his NFL debut.

Then again, Moss had an in-his-prime Brad Johnson throwing him the rock that afternoon. And while that's nothing extraordinarily awesome, Johnson's like John Lennon compared to Christian Ponder's Justin Bieber.

I also heard that if fined by the NFL, Patterson plans to pay by writing a check! Where'd they find this guy!?

He's trying to pay tribute because he looked up to you. Quit being an old crab ass. Besides, he could be a superstar in the league. How 'bout teaching him instead of whining about a #?

Do we really care Randy? You are not worthy of your number being retired " Mr. take every other play off".

We may never know if he's worthy of the #84 due to the fact he's cursed with a horrendous excuse for a quarterback.

Randy doesn't do internet comments sections...


If anyone saw the piece you could totally tell he was saying that just to get a rise out of people.  Just stirring the pot.  I like that one idiot called him a DB.  How is Randy Moss a douchebag?  That DB is the one commenting on the City Pages website, trashing a Minnesota legend!
Who cares that he was rude to a caterer?  Not this guy
Did he ever assault a woman? No

Did he shoot anyone or get busted for gun charges?  No
Did he call a sports station to trash his coach and lie about his name?  Yes!
The NFL needs more Randy's in the league.

Please understand that Randy probably doesnt feed his dogs buffet food. He is Randy Moss man. He MADE the vikings. football is stupid, but Randy is a god.

Did he black out his brief return to Minnesota? Because I think any respect the number could have been given was completely lost with all those shenanigans.

@Scott Conrad 

That is true, but Carter was a man who played the game for the love of the game. Randy Moss was nothing but a nig-nog who played the game for the love of Randy Moss. He can go motherfuck himself.

@DjEn Fuego Respect and class has nothing to do with this at all. The Vikings should be retiring Moss's #84 this season, not giving it to a rookie for him to possibly wear for the next 10 years.

@ajlalk3 The fact that other players are wearing the number should be a big clue to you that the number is NOT going to be retired. This guy was a big POS and many in the Vikings organization know this first-hand.  And sorry, respect and class have a lot to do with it.

@ajlalk3 The Vikings should never retire Randy Moss's jersey.  He betrayed and quit on the team.  He is an embarrassment.  He has no respect for the game, the franchise, or the fans.   He is a shitty human being and I hope he never is treated with respect by the Vikings.
