Randy Moss saw what Jason Whitlock said about him and he did not like it one bit.
Over the weekend, the hall of fame WR was asked during “Sunday NFL Countdown” by Sam Ponder whether he could play football for Gruden following the reporting of the email. Moss explained that when he was in high school, he felt his civil rights were “kinda messed with” because he was Black, and explained how it felt to him to have an NFL coach make those derogatory comments.
“Now being able to play 14 years in the National Football League to have something like this of a leader,” Moss said. “We talk about leadership. We give guys these big contracts because they want to be able to lead 70 men, coaches, equipment staff and managers to the No. 1 goal and that’s to win a championship. And for us to be moving back and not forward in the 21st century. Like I said, man, National Football League: this hurts me. The clock is ticking, man. I’m sorry.”
Jason Whitlock referred to him and other Black people as weak for losing their minds over Gruden’s emails. On Monday, Moss took to Twitter and fired back with ‘On Site,’ which essentially means, whenever they cross paths, Moss is going to do something bad to him.
He soon deleted it, but not before Whitlock fired right back.
“I hear ya. Cry for the white man. Threaten the black man. I hear ya, Randi. Predictable.”
Following Moss’ comments, Bruschi said that he can play for Gruden, but he’d rather not have to do it. He said that “we’ve done it before in different situations.”
“We are all mentally tough people in that locker room, but it’s just something you’d rather not do,” Bruschi said.
As we know now, nobody will be playing for Gruden never again after he stepped down from his head coaching position on Monday following the release from even more emails.
“You have the slogan of Al Davis talking about, ‘Just win, baby.’ Today in Las Vegas, the slogan is, ‘Must win, baby,'” Moss said. “To be able to really see how this team responds coming off a loss and then having this week, coming out with a heavy heart, all eyes is on Las Vegas.”
The Bears beat the Raiders 20-9 on Sunday.
