Randy Moss: ‘If RGIII’s knee holds up, straight Skins, homie’

I don’t know how well the new Fox Sports 1’s “Fox Football Daily” will be able to compete with SportsCenter, but I do know that having Randy Moss as an analyst is going to produce many, many quotable moments, and thus many, many Bog posts.

Here’s the first one, with Moss picking the Redskins to win the NFC East by putting a delightful new spin on his classic line. I’ve watched this about seven times today so far.

Moss also was asked what he thought about Mike Shanahan and Robert Griffin III’s disagreement over when the quarterback should return to action.

“You have to listen to the coach,” Moss said. “This is a business. What the younger guys don’t really understand, when you come into the league, football leaves you in college. I’ve said it time and time again: When you come to the NFL, it is a business. A professional, multi-billion dollar business. What these athletes have to understand is, we know, or we feel that we’re ready to come off a surgery or an injury, but the organization has to protect their investment.

“So basically what I think the Washington Redskins are doing is protecting their investment. Because I think that last play of the playoffs when he laid on the ground, didn’t get to the ball, as a football fan, that was just a bad sight to see. Now that he’s ready, I don’t think it’s a conflict, but I really think that Coach Shanahan’s looking out for the best interest of the team and the organization.”

Now everybody, one clap.
