X Raider Moss Retires , Is he Hall Of Fame Worthy Though ?


  After wearing his welcome out around the league Randy Mossdecided to hang them up on Monday . The NFL network has anointed him a future hall of famer , and im not sure I agree .

  Yes he very well may be the most physically gifted receiver to play the game , and yes he put up some numbers , but is that all there is to a hall of fame player , is greatness no longer required to enter the hall ? Moss never fully developed into the receiver he could of been . He got by on sheer athletic ability and never really worked at becoming a precise route runner or a solid team mate. As his athletic ability faded he never developed the tools that allow veteran receivers like Jerry Rice to continue to play even as their speed begins to fade .

  With our own Tim Brownstill waiting, along with several other wideouts with Superbowl rings , solid numbers , etc, is Moss truly deserving . He refused to run the whole route tree  , and was a cancer in the locker room . He was an undiciplined route runner who was never where he was supposed to be . Even in his prime he had success because Culpepper could run around for 8 to 14 seconds to buy time to find him .

  I think there is more to a hall of famer than stats , leadership , character , and professionalism should come into play . Both Moss and T.O. are star receivers , but are they hall of fame receivers ? If a player is a disruptive malcontent , creates problems in the locker room , hinder and undermine their coaches efforts , and just straight up quit on the Field for all the world to see as Moss did in Oakland , do numbers make you a hall of famer ?
