That would be Sweet!

I don't think so. Moss was all speed, height, jumping ability. He didn't run great routes or give great effort. He was born with superb tools and didn't get as much out of them as he could have. Not great coaching material in my book.


Couldn't disagree more.

Randy Moss="I play when I want to play."


Got it.

Come on, as a Vikings fan you should know the context of that quote.

He was responding to a question about what things/situations motivated him. Moss has said multiple times that "I play when I want to play" meant he motivated himself. That he didn't need outside forces to motivate him. Moss always wanted to play.

That said, I doubt he'd be a good coach, but not for the reasons you said. But because great players very rarely make good coaches. Its the guys who couldn't quite make it, or had to scratch and claw just to make the end of a roster for years that tend to be the best coaches.

It's so strange how we bolster mediocrity and critique excellence
