Cobb remembers Moss, on screen

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 6, 2012 – 3:50 pm

Packers WR Randall Cobb was just eight years old when Randy Moss took the NFL by storm as a rookie in 1998. So it’s no surprise that Cobb admitted it will be a little strange on Sunday being on the same field with Moss, who was one of Cobb’s favorite targets as a Madden video game player.

“It really is,” Cobb said. “I can remember back in NFL 2K6 or 2K2 or something like that, I don’t know, it was a while ago … I can remember playing with him and just throwing it deep to him every time. It’s going to be pretty cool to be on the field with him and get to watch him play from the sidelines.”

Moss, of course, had his share of big games against the Packers as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. He most recently played at Lambeau in 2010, when Vikings QB Brett Favre overthrew him in the end zone on a desperation fourth-down heave late in the fourth quarter that allowed the Packers to escape with the win.

Moss hasn’t played since that 2010 season, which he began with New England and finished with Tennessee. He played four games for the Vikings that year in the middle of the season. Sunday will mark his first game at Lambeau Field playing for somebody other than the Vikings.

    Hopefully, Randall will do some memorable things in the game, so Moss will remember him in the future.

    Cobb the young pup that he is needs to revisit Mossy boy’s totally disgusting behaviour and derespect towards OUR fans in OUR endzone and on OUR goalpost. Here’s hoping Mossy-boy gets a much needed and overdue first class drilling.

    Fish, you’re a Fish. Moss is a great player and fun to watch. I used to think he was pretty rogue, phantom-mooning the crowd at Lambeau Field, ’till I heard him say “it was in response to the packer fans, who moon the opposing team on their way out of the stadium.” That’s why I love the game!

    I personally see the 49ers pulling the upset and I have them as one of my betting locks! Wrote all about it herehttp://nfllatestnews.com/some-underdog-picks-to-chew-on/

    Upset? I don’t know if I would call it an upset if the 49ers win but I do know I will be upset!

    Max, that fans mooning nonsense was total bs. There has never been an instance of an organized plan to moon the opposing team’s bus. A random drunk dropping his drawers doesn’t give Randy the justification he needs to disrespect the home fans. He’s always been a classless punk on the field and always will be.

    I just want to comment on the Moss-Mooning. As a rabid Packers fan, I honestly had no problem with what he did, it was just poking fun, I mean what’s a rivalry with out some crudeness. Out of all the ACTUALLY horrible things NFL players do outside the game/ off the field and even on the field, like what Suh did stomping on Dietrich-Smith was FAR FAR MORE disgusting that what Moss did. MOSS is a beast and one of the most dominating, if not the most dominating WR of all time! Great respect to him, but come Sunday Williams better strap him donw like a patient in the insane asylum! GO PACK GO

    yes sharee, they do stink. i couldnt imagine the horrible feelings i would have if my team won a superbowl then followed it with a 15-1 season. man, the inhumanity of a situation like that would be too much to bare for one large group of fans. its a good thing that the bears, vikings, and lions never have to worry about that!

    @ sharee, nice try trolling on the Packers official site. You must like the pack enough to visit here at least.

    I thought the mooning episode was comical. I still get a chuckle from it. The next morning, one of my Viking fan co-workers cut out a picture in the paper of Randy pantomiming the moon. He taped it on the wall next to a picture of the Packers logo. Yes, it stung, but it was still a good joke. I get the last laugh when I remind him of our four Super Bowls and 13 overall titles. Green and Gold forever!

    I have to give Moss credit. He’s not the classless, punk he once was. He matured when he shut up, and grew up in New England. I’m just glad I didn’t have to go through my growing pains with the whole world watching. I’ll bet, most of us are glad too!.

    A Packer fan for 45+ years, Moss along with Sayers were the only 2 opposing players I was truely afraid of.

    I believe Randy was showing us his more intelligent side. After all, with his IQ somewhere below freezing, that may have been the most he has used (and shown) his brains in his lifetime. Let me count the arrests.

    Well said, John-

    A couple of years ago, i finally took my 1st tour of Lambeau Field. At the end of the tour, the tour guide told us that the Packers also like to recognize the achievments of other teams within the division, and then showed us an empty glass case, explaining that it is for honoring the Vikings for their Superbowl titale thaa they have won. What made it even better is that there were Viking fans on the tour….priceless

    Losing a playoff game to the Vikings at Lambeau Field is what stings. We’re getting too used to that sort of thing. Lombardi wouldn’t have it.

    At the moment it happen, it made Randy look like a p.o.s, now I can laugh about it. Will he make a big enough contribution to help his team this season. I highly doubt it…..GO PACK GO.GREEN AND YELLOW!!!!!!

    Mossy boy Is and has ALWAYS been a pos. Vikes tired of his classless nonsense and eventually refuesed to resign him despite his talent.
    Raiders couldn’t wait to get rid of him and all the busted plays he brought each game by his outright refusal to go over the middle on route adjustment calls…OR outright effortless routes he’d slow jog out.
    Billechick in N.E. cut him in the middle of the season for lockeroom chemistry sake.
    He’s a classless pos, cancer, punk, quitter…period. Who doesn’t want to see him totally drilled and end up lights-out?
