As if the Bears didn’t have enough problems of their own to worry about. Now they have another one on their hands.
The team’s division rival, the Minnesota Vikings, have made a big-time move in effort to re-establish themselves among the NFC’s best.
In an attempt to add Favre firepower, in hopes of turning around the aerial attack, the team traded its 2011 3rd-round draft pick to New England for their former superstar – #84 Randy Moss.
It’s official. Moss is returning to his old stomping grounds in Minnesota. Upgrade.
The Vikings aggressively tried to trade for disgruntled Chargers WR Vincent Jackson last month, but nothing transpired. The Vikings will be without top receiver Sidney Rice for at least another 4 weeks, so the team felt like it had to make a blockbuster deal; and did they ever.
The move means we get to see Randy in Chicago November 14. And that’s not all, because Week 10 won’t be the only chance to face him in the regular season, as we travel to the Twin cities to catch Moss in Minnesota Week 15, five days before Christmas on Monday Night Football.
If the November 14th showdown wasn’t already a hot commodity. I can only imagine what it will be like more than two months from now, taking the trip to visit Moss in Week 15. Division on the line? Playoff implications?
