Mike Heimerdinger spoke with the media yesterday and seemed to say Randy Moss is a natural fit in the offense we already run, so we should see big production without many adjustments to the X's and O's. I'll agree with this for a lot of the reasons I laid-out yesterday: Moss has been stuck in a roll as a deep ball specialist for teams that are dink-and-dunk down the field (except in 2007) for the last half of his career. With the Titans, he'll have all the play action and deep routes he can handle, because we don't thrive on the short game, we live by the big play right now. is he's motivated enough to run some post/corner/deep-in/deep-out routes then the sky is the limit. We don't need him to run short routes, because we do that with TE's and backs, plain and simple.
Clay Travis dubs the Titans newly acquired WR The Mossiah, and starts the clock on former Titans safety, and Travis' radio co-host, Blaine Bishop after he swore to grow a Jeff Fihser mustache if the team acquired The Mossiah. Travis also recaps the tortured history of Titans WRs in the gap between the year we passed on Moss to draft Kevin Dyson through Britt's ascension this season.
Vince Young has been great overall this season with play-action passes (thank you CJ) with a 151.2 passer rating on just 29 attempts.
But since 2008, Titans wide receivers have only two more catches out of play-action that Randy Moss has by himself in the same span:
• Moss has 43 catches for 862 yards and eight touchdowns on balls that average 20.9 yards in the air.
• Titans wide receivers have 45 catches for 878 yards and four touchdowns on balls that average 17.1 in the air.

I have no idea if the caterer Moss embarrassed in Minnesota is any good at cooking, but it sounds like he's pretty savy when it comes to business and promotion...
If you're like me and drafted Randy Moss for your fantasy team, then you know he's been killing your team since the first few weeks. The move to the Titans should raise his stock for sure.
Online betting service Bodog has released some over/under related to Moss' production now that he's in Nashville.
Right team, right time.
When the Titans take the field against the Redskins on November 21st, they'll be celebrating Veterans Day full tilt. That same week Marine vet. Ahmard Hall will lead a group of players to visit soldiers at Nashville's Veteran's Hospital.
The bye week is a good chance to glance at this year's most notable draft prospects, and Wes Bunting has a list of guys you'd be wise to not hype-up if you haven't heard anything about them since April, when they were the kings of the returning NFL Draft prospects...
