"... what we’re trying to do and will continue to do is develop our players that we have and continue to show the belief we have in them. Don’t minimize what a player has to do coming in at mid-season to create a niche to help a team. How many players have come in at midseason and made a major contribution? Nothing is as easy as it looks; just ask Minnesota."
The true translations of Jerry Angelo on Randy Moss.
"First let me start with the fact that Lovie and I are cowards and we cannot have anyone around that may undermine us. Now that I have gotten that out of the way, we are coaching and managing for our jobs right now and Randy Moss is just to volatile. We have an oppurtnuity to be very mediocre and at the end of the season beg our spineless owners to keep our jobs. Randy Moss could possibly make us great, but he could also force Lovie to say something meaningful in a press conference. I would like to direct your attention to what former Moss team mate Teddy Bruschi said that if you have a grown man coach you can control Randy Moss. We have a cardboard cut out with a confused look on his face. And here is a question for you media types, what do we do with our current #1 WR Devin Hester. Devin is a talent that you cannot put on the bench and lose his stellar hands and route runnings. Considering that Devin is one of the few good draft picks in my tenure it might make me look bad."
Eh, it only took him what, 2 weeks to alienate his teammates and coach? I know childress isn't einstein, but I think the media and fans hype up the negatives when a guy is down. I personally wouldn't have pulled the trigger on that one at all...
