After a tough 29-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Randy Moss sounded like a veteran ready to work with his team.
Moss, who created a stir before being released by the Vikings, spoke to the media and spoke about “hustling” as much as he could during the game.
I think I just tried to do as much hustling as I could,” Moss said. “I just tried to stay within the offense. I felt comfortable out there, but I don’t think I had a very good overall game. I think my blocking really wasn’t that good, wasn’t where I wanted it to be. I’ll just go back to the drawing board and come back again next week.”
Regardless of the outcome of the game, and the statistics put up by Moss, one has to feel this is exactly what head coach Jeff Fisher would like to hear. The receiver praised the work ethic of the Patriots and bashed that of the Vikings. Moss said the Titans worked hard leading up to the week and expected a win.
“I just want to fit within the offense and help this team win. If me being a decoy and moving the ball and helping us win, then that’s what I need to do,” Moss said, per TitanInsider. “I don’t think we were planning to lose this game. This loss hurts. I just think how much energy and effort we put in this week, including the coaches. This is something that we’ve got to look at film tomorrow, correct our mistakes and go back in again next week.”
All signs point to the relationship between the Titans and Moss being positive at this point. A veteran coach like Jeff Fisher seems to be helping Moss, and may help develop this team into a very potent offense by the end of the season.
