Cris Collinsworth: "You get so spoiled when you have a player that draws the kind of attention that Randy Moss (did), ... You look for, 'Are there guys to double team?' And right now in this offense, there isn't."
Cris Collinsworth: "Probably more than anything else, he needs a wife, honestly, ... If he had a wife, the minute he takes after Donovan McNabb, his wife would have said, 'What are you doing? Pick up the telephone and call him and apologize. You're so out of line.'"

They become salesman. After awile, they figure out how to get attention."
