Things rarely end well with Moss

In Oakland, things were worse. Here's Moss explaining to the San Francisco Chronicle in November 2006 why he had problems with drops that year ...

"Maybe because I'm unhappy and I'm not too much excited about what's going on," Moss said then. "So, my concentration and focus level tend to go down sometimes when I'm in a bad mood. All I can say is if you put me in a good situation and make me happy, man, you get good results."

That's true. In 1998, with a championship-caliber team in Minnesota, he was awesome. Ditto for 2007 with the Patriots.

But now, with his contract up, and future uncertain, and the team in flux? All of it's worth keeping an eye on.

When everything going along smoothly, you're just fine. It'll be interesting to see what happens this year after a few bumps in the road.

No matter what, it's pretty easy to see why the Patriots are bending over backwards to say all the right things about their superstar.
