what is the talk up there in minny. will moss be hailed as a returning hero or will he be bood when introduced. i think even i had enough of the antics by the time he left, but there is no question he was under a microscope during his viking career. he was scrutinized more than almost anyone in the nfl. i prefer to remember him flying up and down the field, gaining huge chunks of yardage for us. especially against the pack. he seemed to have his best games against the hated green and yellow. i hope he gets great support........until the game starts.

I don't believe there's any reason to boo him. For one thing he was traded and he had no control over that, and if he did want to be traded there was probably good reason for it...our owner sucked.

that's good to hear. he did a lot for our team. i hope the game is broadcast here outside chicago so i can see it. i will feel good for him until opening kick-off, then i will be screaming at (him) the tv.

If I was there I would cheer for him. I have no reasons why I wouldn't until the game starts. Obviously if he scores a td or something I won't cheer for him but I still like and respect him.

There will be more cheers than boos.
I wonder if he'll play longer than he did against the eagles

i totally agree... i think daunte is a trader! To me eventhough randy is gone, in my eyes hell always be a viking. Hopefully we can get him back the end of the year. sounds like a long shot, but you never know what can happen

I am sure he will have a mixed reaction.. Some fans still love him, and some hate him for his actions.. The one thing we can't deny is that he was a great player for us.. If it weren't for Randy Moss, we wouldn't have won that many games in those years.. If I were at the Dome monday night, I would cheer him when he was introduced, then boo him when we start playing.. Pretty much the same thing I will do from my living room on monday night..

I wouldnt boo...like others have said, I don't think Randy wanted it... (I will boo Daunte to no end when I see him.)
It will be kinda sad for me to see him though.
Probably wont play more than one or two series but I bet they send him deep.
Get ready Freddy!!

I know I will be cheering for the guy. The dude made Vikings games fun again. I have no reason to boo him.

since its only preseason, i'd love to see a deep bomb to randy just for old times sake.
i'll always be a fan of him, he was the most exciting reciever in the game.

Although he got injured last year he was on pace to set like all new season records for himself and some NFL records. I still think that if Randy stays healthy he is by far the best receiver in the game.

Not with Brooks under center...

having brooks throw to him won't make him any worse of a reciever, it will just hurt his numbers
