Straight cache, homey: Randy Moss tries to name all 20QBs from career (vid)


As in, “cache memory.” Get it?

During his enormously productive 14-year NFL career, Randy Moss played for five different teams and caught a lot of balls, 982 to be exact. And in an era where it is not at all uncommon for several quarterbacks to be employed by a team during a given season, Moss has caught passes from a lot of quarterbacks, that number being 20 of them (although in Moss’ case, spending his first seven NFL seasons with the Vikings certainly helped boost that number).

During a pre-show meeting for “Fox Football Daily,” Randy Moss attempted to list off all twenty quarterbacks — some good, some great, some legends (others? not so much), and watching him struggle to do so is a real treat.

Fantastic. It warrants mentioning that Moss also threw two touchdown passes during his career, one to Chris Carter during the magical 1998 season and one to something called D’Wayne Bates in 2002.

And just for the record, as Bleacher Report notes, Moss has caught touchdown passes from thirteen quarterbacks: Brad Johnson, Randall Cunningham, Jeff George, Daunte Culpepper, Todd Bouman, Gus Frerotte, Kerry Collins, Andrew Walter, Tom Brady, Matt Cassel, Brett Favre, Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick. Not too shabby of a rundown of talented, successful quarterbacks, for the most part.

The other seven are more or less a veritable who’s who of who’s not: Vince Young, Aaron Brooks, Spergon Wynn, Rusty Smith, Marques Tuiasosopo, Brian Hoyer and Jay Fiedler.

Spergon Wynn, man. As a Vikings fan, just reading that name still gives causes me to shudder.
