Randy Moss believes he could still play

Terrell Owens isn’t the only incoming Hall of Famer who believes he could still add to his NFL resume.
Randy Moss said Friday that he thinks he could play right now, and that he could have an impact.
“The game is that easy.” Plenty of former players think they could still do the things they once did.
He added seven receptions for 112 yards in three postseason games, including 41 yards on two catches in Super Bowl XLVII.
As to whether he could score 10 touchdowns a full six years later, take the under.
Moss also spent time on Friday complaining about the way in which the media treated him throughout his career.
I think it was very unfair to me.
“Being able to look back and reflect back, man, I wouldn’t change it,” Moss said Friday.
“I just wanted to play football.
It quite possibly would have gotten him a Super Bowl ring (he mused after his rookie season that he’d finish his career with three or four), and it definitely would have propelled him past Jerry Rice as the greatest receiver of all time.

Randy Moss said Friday that he thinks he could play right now, and that he could have an impact.

“I really truly believe I could still average 10 touchdowns a year,” Moss told reporters in Canton on Friday, via the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “The game is that easy.”

Plenty of former players think they could still do the things they once did.

He added seven receptions for 112 yards in three postseason games, including 41 yards on two catches in Super Bowl XLVII.

As to whether he could score 10 touchdowns a full six years later, take the under.

Moss also spent time on Friday complaining about the way in which the media treated him throughout his career.

“I get to put on a gold jacket regardless of the stuff that was written, the things that were said about me throughout my whole career,” Moss said. “And the thing about it is, it brainwashed a whole lot of football fans out in the world. I think it was very unfair to me. I think it was unfair to my family.”

But Moss brought much of it on himself. Though his off-field issues were limited (he bumped a traffic control officer with his car in 2002), his “I play when I want to play” mantra…
