There are no good guys or bad guys in this situation. Moss and the Pats have been heading down this road for a while. Not because Moss is a "cancer" or a "quitter" but because he and the team disagree on the allocation of several millions of dollars. People like to assign blame and evil onto every disagreement though. There has to be a good guy and a bad guy in every storyline.
However I had a conversation with a friend yesterday where I predicted Belichick might complain to officials and his support staff that it seems like there are 12 or 14 defensive players all of a sudden.

- When alluding to Randy Moss being traded to the Vikings, both Moss and Belichick stated, there’s no major contractual or personality problem behind the move. Bullshit. However, what the hell is Belichick thinking? For that matter, what was he thinking in last years regular season game against the Colts? With less than two minutes left in the game and a small lead, he went for a 1st down from his own 20 on 4th down. Now this?
Belichick, a shoe in for the Hall of Fame, has always made shrewd decisions when it came to firing and hiring players. The only safe “Patriot” is Tom Brady. That said, he’s always stood behind his record to justify his decisions. With 3 Super Bowl wins and one undefeated regular season, who can blame him? My prediction is, this time things will change. Belichick will be humiliated at what his offense becomes in the absence of “Randy Moss.” I think it’s a no brainer. Moss routinely attracted triple coverage from opposing defenses. This opened the door for speedster Wes Welker to do what he wanted along with other Patriot receivers. No more.
My “opinion” (not fact) is that the Pats offense has just become ordinary and New England will have to struggle for a .500 season. I honestly hope I’m wrong since my pre – season Super Bowl pick was “New England vs. Green Bay.” Unfortunately, I don’t think I am.
He was thinking "My defense hasn't held up the last three drives in a row and I'm quickly losing a 21 point lead and possibly the game. We get this first down we can run out the clock and win."
