Halfway through the most hyped game of the NFL playoffs and the NY Jets lead the New England Patriots 14-3. Headlines leading up to the game were not about the players but more so the trash talking. Patriots head coach Bill Belichik warned his players to not participate in the he said she said. But Pats WR Wes Welker not only ignored his coach’s orders but delivered one of the most memorable press conferences, referencing feet or toes 11 times, in response to Rex Ryan’s foot fetish scandal. Despite leading the Patriots in receiving during the regular season, Welker was benched for the start of the game!
Although Randy Moss asked for a trade from the New England Patriots at the start of the season, fans were still shocked when the Patriots got rid of their star player. Now more information is surfacing about the straw, or hair, that broke the camel’s back.
During last week’s Monday Night football game against the Miami Dolphins, Moss had a blowup during half-time. Pats QB Tom Brady confronted Moss about his attitude, and the altercation escalated to about the men’s hair. Brady told Moss to shave his beard, and Moss chirped back for Brady to cut his girly hair.
Moss’ new team the Minnesota Vikings will play the NY Jets tomorrow on Monday Night Football.
Who to know: Randy Moss, Tom Brady, Brett Favre
What to know: Randy Moss traded from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings for a third round draft pick
Why you need to know it: Moss is a 7-time Pro Bowler receiver who was in the final year of his contract with New England. After the Pats gave Brady a contract but not Moss, the future Hall of Famer asked to be traded. Before the start of the season Moss said, “”When you have done so much and put so much work in, it kind of feels like I am not wanted. I am taking that in stride and playing my final year out and whatever the future holds is what it holds, but it is kind of a bad feeling — feeling not wanted. It is not like my production has gone down.”
Someone who did want Moss was Minnesota Vikings’ QB Brett Favre. Favre was instrumental in getting Moss to come back to the team that drafted him and where he started his career. The Vikings were a Super Bowl favorite but are 1-2. Part of the reason for Minnesota’s rough start are injuries to their recovers. Pro Bowler Sidney Rice is out for the first 6-weeks with a hip injury, and Percy Harvin is day to day with migraine headaches. The Vikings play the NY Jets on Monday night, and Moss is expected to be in a purple and gold uniform.
Tom Brady has recently caught a lot of flack after he told reports his super model wife Gisele Bundchen will not let him cut his hair. Not even a 2-time Super Bowl MVP wears the pants in his relationship, and now Bundchen has been snapped in some scandalous photos with another man.
TMZ first posted the photos at Bundchen at a masqured ball in Paris. Budchen looks to be kissing the man in question Helly Nahmad. Nahmad is a French art heir and trust fund millionaire. Bundchen and Nahmad are apparently good friends, but I am sure that doesn’t make Brady feel better about the pictures.
