Without Randy Moss, Pats can excel
Bill Belichick already has a successful blueprint for life without Moss
If there is a consensus among fans as to the impact that a potential Randy Moss trade will have on the New England Patriots' offense, it is that New England is making a huge mistake. Without Moss, the Patriots' wide receiver corps consists of Wes Welker, Julian Edelman, Brandon Tate, Matt Slater and Taylor Price. In other words, two really good possession receivers and a bunch of unproven pass catchers behind them.
While it is certainly true not having Moss means that the New England offense will lack a true vertical threat, before chalking this move up as an error driven by office politics, it is useful to remember the last time New England and Minnesota squared off on a football field; that matchup provided what is likely a blueprint for how the Patriots can thrive in an offense sans Moss.
