Randy Moss left Minnesota under plenty of scrutiny -- there were questions about both his ability to coexist with Brad Childress and his locker room behavior.

On The NFL Today CBS Sports' own Charley Casserly reported that Moss' bad influence on young wideout Percy Harvin also helped hasten his departure (Casserly also pointed out that a 'number of things' resulted in Moss getting released).

Particularly this story -- Casserly reported that Moss, in the middle of a practice, took off his pads. Harvin approached Moss and asked him, "Randy, practice over?"

Moss' response? "Well, it is for me."

That fits in nicely with Moss' previous behavior ("I play when I want to play," etc.), but clearly, Brad Childress didn't think having Moss hang around, poison his team teach and Harvin how to be a malcontent was a good idea.

This is fairly reasonable, but it doesn't justify Chilly flexing his power over team personnel (without consulting ownership) on such an important and high-profile decision.

Although it may not have even mattered -- provided that the reports that Childress and Harvin nearly brawled are true, it's pretty clear that Moss' already blackened Harvin's soul made his influence known.

Did anyone stop to think that maybe the reson that Harvin went off on childress was because he was calling him out for lieing to the press about why he fired moss. that is another posssiblility as to why they fought. All reports i saw from players that moss was with on the pats said he was great in the locker room he was a mentor to young receivers.....that was said by welker....why would they lie.....they have no reason to lie....childress on the other hand has keeping hios job as a huge reason to lie....this may or may not be the reason but it is something to think about.....that and the fact that if the media quit sensationalizing this it would be over already...

Cutting Moss in defiance of upper management is the only example of good coaching Chilly has shown all year.

mauxdeverite, I couldn't agree more.  I'm a lifelong Vikings fan.  The hue & cry in Minny about cutting this loser loose is embarrassing.  I think they thought he'd "matured" in New England;  all he did was become more entitled.  "King Randy".   I hope he wears a Pat's helmet into the H.O.F.    His ilk is ruining pro sports.

Really, and this thought never crossed their minds (his negative influence) before they went-ahead and made the trade for Moss?  That is what is perplexing to me:  The organization had already dumped this guy for the exact same reasons?  So, how could you not have reservations about this, before hand?  This is exactly why the Packers did not want Moss, back when he left the Raiders --because he was an OBVIOUS risk; but it is also obvious, to me, that the Packers brass have a bit more common sense when it comes to dealing with the future of their organization.
