MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Former Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss is now an NFL analyst with ESPN, and he had quite the debut on Sunday.

Moss was sitting alongside former quarterback Trent Dilfer as Dilfer gave his thoughts on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who put himself in the recent national spotlight for not standing for the National Anthem before games. The move is in protest to recent alleged police brutality against African-Americans.

The move prompted a few other NFL players before Week 1 action on Sunday to not acknowledge the anthem by either sitting or taking a knee on the sidelines while other players stood. It was especially visible on Sunday, the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Dilfer said he respects what Kaepernick is doing and the passion that he has for the protest on the issue, but says he does not respect the fact that Kaepernick put himself and his stance above his team. Dilfer said Kaepernick should be quiet and used poor judgment in putting social justice ahead of his team.

Moss could only respond by glaring at Dilfer with a “death stare,” almost in disbelief at what he was saying.

    Who is Randy Moss?

    Moss had his 10 plays of fame. Sadly, he is now trying to exercise a brain he had no use for as a football player. “death stare”??? Don’t make me laugh. Small dogs and cats aren’t afraid of Moss. Dilfer bags him for lunch.

    Perhaps Dilfer should quit thinking his White privilege extends to football teams. “Putting social justice a head of his team” is a really dumb statement and deserves a death stare. Are the 49ers really more important than the rights of Americans? Dilfer is a dodo. FYI: Moss is a hall of fame candidate and Dilfer was a less than average QB.


    Totally not surprised to see Randy Moss acting unprofessionally. He was an extremely talented player with zero impulse control when he was here. Then he went on his walkabout for $$$, lucking out with Tom Brady and padding his numbers. All the while, people made excuses for his bad behavior, and it looks like that continues. You don’t throw shade on a co-worker when the cameras are running, no matter how much you disagree. But again, the people paying him a lot of money will forgive him and there won’t be consequences. Typical.

  5. If you dont back Kaep apparently your a racist

  6. Nobody has to back him, and I don’t think that people who disagree with him are racist. I think people need to realize that their reality may not be the reality of others. He can protest all he wants, this is America isn’t it? And as far as throwing “shade,” Dilfer said some dumb S&%@. Listen up White America….It is perfectly fine to be strong in your convictions, just don’t get so angry when someone disagrees with you. Nobody’s taking your country, well the country you took

      listen up ensign johnson, 9-11 was a silent moment for those who were murdered by the enemies of our way of life, not for weenies to disrespect our country.

    Ok, so Randy Moss, is part of White America? Because he is the one who looks angry that someone disagrees with him.

    Moss was probably stoned out of his simple mind.
