Then I think Sean and I both got to the point where it was like we have to do something here. We have to play for something.

"We started talking about it, talking about jersey colors and Sean was like, there's only so many things as head coaches that we can control. Obviously we can control (jersey colors) and we said hey this is a great idea."

Simple Roots And Iconic Moments Define Canton Bound Moss .
Randy Moss is never shy about his roots. The route that led him to NFL stops in Minnesota, Oakland, New England, Tennessee, San Francisco, and now a permanent one in Canton, began in Rand, West Virginia. Moss put the town of just over 1,000 people on the map by shattering NFL records across a 15-year career and making his way to the Hall of Fame, but it’s a two-way street between Moss and his humble hometown. “There are a lot of people back in West Virginia who really need times like this,” said Moss as he addressed the media just under three weeks before his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He went on to talk about his simple upbringing and the people who helped him by adding “I know my life is not all about me. I know me playing football is not all about me.” Moss took all of this in stride, and as a rookie in 1998, was a key part of the greatest teams in NFL history. He had 1,313 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns, helping Vikings break the record for points in a season en route to a 15-1 finish. But they collapsed as heavy Super Bowl favorites, losing 30-27 to the Atlanta Falcons in overtime of the NFC Championship Game. It was the first of many near misses Moss would have in January, as playoff heartbreak unfortunately became stapled to his career. But if how he started his time in purple and gold was memorable, it was nothing compared to how it finished.
