Fox NFL analyst Daryl "Moose" Johnston appeared on the Dennis & Callahan show to discuss the Randy Moss controversy. On the heels of a report from ESPN's Merril Hoge that criticism of Moss is unwarranted, Johnston, who was in the broadcast booth for Sunday's game, was asked for his opinion on whether Moss quit on the Patriots.
"I think that's a very, very strong statement. I don't think he quit," Johnston said, noting that while Moss "did not have a good game," the receiver has a history of not finishing routes strong. "Is it true? I don't know," Johnston said. "You're going to have to watch and make that decision for yourself."
Johnston did criticize Moss, especially for the interception on a pass Tom Brady aimed for the receiver. "The one interception that Tom threw, I thought it was all on Randy," Johnston said. "He didn't come off the line hard, he didn't come out of his break hard, and Tom put the ball in a position where Randy should have been. That's why it has to be the same every time. That's why you have to go 100 percent. If you're in a timing-based offense, your quarterback expects you to be at a spot. Now, all of a sudden, you're not there because you decided to go half-speed, it's going to disrupt your whole offense. ... You can't take snaps off. You just can't do that."
