Cris Carter, who played with Randy Moss in Minnesota, joined Dale & Holley to talk about Moss and the trade that sent the receiver back to the Vikings. Carter said he wasn't surprised by the move. "I thought it would be Randy's last year [with New England], so the alternative is to trade him," he said. "I think it's a better deal for New England to trade him then to let him walk and not get anything for him."
Carter called Moss the best deep threat in the history of football. "That one thing that he does, he's done it better than anyone who's played football," Carter said. "There's no other deep threat like Randy Moss in the history of football. Randy Moss is the best deep threat that football has ever seen. I don't care if you like him. I don't care if you think he plays 80 percent of the time. I don't care if you don't like what he wears, how he wears his hair, that's a fact. The rest of the stuff is just opinion."
"Randy makes everyone better," Carter continued. "He makes everyone better on New England's team. Because of numbers and what you have to do. It's a game of numbers."
Carter believes that the loss of Moss will make it harder for everyone, particularly Wes Welker. "It's going to be tougher on Wes Welker. Every passing situation they can double-team him now. They can bracket Wes now. His job becomes harder. [Tom] Brady's job becomes harder. I'm not saying these guys won't be successful. You can have success with and without [Moss], you just have to have a different mix. If you think that you're going to do the same things and get the same results, that's not going to be the case."
