Report: Moss, Brady Fight Over Hair

UPDATE (10/11/10 – 6:45 p.m.) – Multiple sources, including Bill Belichick and Brandon Meriweather, have shot down Casserly’s report. Casserly usually has well-place sources, but maybe this rumor was more a joke than an unfounded lie.

File this away in the “WTF?!?!” section. According to CBS’s Charlie Casserly, former Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss and quarterback Tom Brady recently had to be separated during an argument in the locker room. Why?

Brady reportedly expressed disappointment over Moss’s recent behavior and suggested he should trim his beard. Moss allegedly responded by telling Brady he should cut his hair and that, according to Casserly, he looked like a girl.

For what it’s worth, CSNNE.com’s Tom E. Curran said a well-placed source with the Patriots claims that a report of a fight is simply “not true.” Curran added that Brady and Moss’s lockers were next to each other, and the two often dined together. What do you believe?

Other reports previously said that Moss had a heated exchange with QB coach Bill O’Brien during the team’s win Monday night against the Dolphins. Another report said Moss refused to talk to Belichick on the plane ride home from Miami after he recorded zero catches.

Analysis

There’s no way to know whether the reported argument over Brady’s beautiful hairdo was the straw that broke the camel’s back, but it would appear that a series of incidents invovling Moss led the team to trade him after just four games. Perhaps Belichick wanted Moss in the Vikings lineup to hopefully knock off the Jets.

But, to trade the receiver before facing the toughest team in the AFC (next Sunday the Pats face the Ravens) shows how much the Patriots needed to trade Moss, and how much Moss needed to leave town.

  1. [...] If you don’t already read Deadspin, then promise us you won’t start after looking at that video, because it is much more interesting than our stupid blog…But for real, I think this Brett Favre story is riveting. Can you imagine a Monday Night Football matchup with more story lines than tonight’s tilt between Minnesota and the Jets? Brett Favre returning to NY where he played for a season, the same week the Deadspin story came out, Randy Moss’ first game back as a Viking, with another Hall of Fame quarterback throwing to him. You think Favre is gonna be scared to hurl a couple deep balls off his back foot to Randy Moss’ Kimbo Slice bearded ass? Don’t think so. And Revis just loves talking shit about Randy, so that matchup is gonna be exciting to watch. And did you hear about Tom Brady and Randy’s little squabble before his departure from New England? Check this out [...]

  3. [...] According to a report, Brady picked a fight with Moss over Moss’s behavior the last few weeks, and suggested that the wide receiving great trim his beard.  Not to be outdone by the idiotic comment, Moss apparently shot back to Brady to trim his hair because he looked like a freakin girl.  Well played Mr. Moss, as it is true, and it is about time everyone says it- Tom, CUT YOUR FUCKING HAIR.  Not only do you look like a girl, but you are actually also starting to look eirly similar to Justin Bieber, so much so that it apparently caused friction which was one of the things that got Moss shipped out to the Vikings.
