Would Moss (right) serve as a role model for young receivers such as David Gettis and Brandon LaFell? Not unless you define role model differently than I do.
Moss would be nothing more than a temp. So what? How much fun would it be to watch him line up on the same field as Steve Smith?
For the first time, Carolina would have a receiver with a bigger name and a bigger ego.
The Panthers can't run anymore; I think there were times Sunday when St. Louis stacked 12 defenders at the line of scrimmage. The quarterback is going to have to win games.
Moss can help. And he does so many things, such as run deep.
Just because Moss stopped jelling in New England this season with Tom Brady and jelled only for a few moments in Minnesota with Brett Favre doesn't mean Moss won't jell with Matt Moore or Jimmy Clausen.
Moore-Moss would make Sunday's game against New Orleans compelling. There's nothing to lose. If Moss acts out, the Panthers could cut him and he could continue his NFL farewell tour with, say, Cincinnati.
I'm serious about this. Inject some age into the youth movement and some color into an otherwise gray season.
Remember what boxer Roberto Duran said famously during his second fight with Sugar Ray Leonard?
Duran said, "No Moss."
The Panthers should say, "Moss."
