Jerry Jones isn’t looking foward to seeing Randy Moss next weekend

Jerry Jones says that he’s not looking forward to seeing #84 in purple next week, that being newly acquired Randy Moss playing for the Vikings.

Jerry Jones isn’t looking forward to seeing receiver Randy Moss next weekend in Minnesota. Jones considers the trade that sent Moss from the New England Patriots to the Minnesota Vikings this week a great move for the team that knocked Dallas out of the playoffs last season and bad news for the Cowboys. “They’re better, and that’s not good for the Cowboys to have Randy Moss over there,” Jones said Friday. “There’s no gilding the lily here. It will create issues.” Jones stressed that the Cowboys’ focus is on Sunday’s home game against the Tennessee Titans, but he’s well aware that the next game on the schedule is Oct. 17 at Minnesota.

Moss has followed up on his vow to make the Cowboys regret not taking him with the eighth overall pick in the 1998 draft. He has 30 receptions for 607 yards and 10 touchdowns in six games against the Cowboys, all of which were won by Moss’ team. “I apologize, I apologize, I apologize,” Jones said of his decision to pass on Moss due to character concerns and make a safe pick by drafting defensive end Greg Ellis.

“I don’t believe that’s going to do any good. He’s too much of a competitor. He’s a real competitor, and I’ve known all my life that when people say you can’t do it or when people pass over you saying somebody else can do it, all that does is inspire you. “We probably awoke a sleeping giant if it meant that much to him. Certainly, he’s made us pay, and I’m sorry we’ve got to play him.”
