So the head coach has had a lot on his plate of late.
Look, I wanted that extension for Moss done yesterday. Brady wants that extension for him ASAP, and so do his teammates, I'm sure. But now that the season has started, that will be tough to do and Moss knows it. That's why he's (understandably) frustrated.
In other words, he's telling the Boston media and fans today that if you don't see me back next year, it's not because I didn't want to be here. It's because I wasn't wanted by Belichick bad enough, and that he didn't offer me a contract on my time line (before today's game).
But whining about a lack of a contract offer right after a thrilling win to open the season was a bad move, even selfish on his part, one that is taking away from the win and Welker's successful first game back on the field since his devastating January knee injury.
Moss says he won't talk about this the rest of the year. Good move, Randy (if you keep your word).
You'll get your contract offer eventually. Just wait your turn like Brady did. You have a whole season now to (quietly) get an extension done.
You think Brady liked getting re-signed longterm after his field goal kicker did? No, but the $72 million deal for him is done and that's all that matters. Remember what they say, Randy: good things come to those who wait.
