The article reports that Randy Moss is the most gifted receiver in the NFL, probably the most talented player at any position. His ability to stretch the field and draw extra defenders made every other member of the offense more effective and his points production helped the team Minnesota Vikings' defense. In conjunction with the loss of offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, losing Moss is going to make the Vikings average offensively.
