Recently outspoken Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss took time out today to speak with us as part of a promotion he was doing in Boston for Capital One Invisible Bank.
"I was kind of nervous coming out here because I didn't know what to expect," Moss said in a wide ranging interview this afternoon. "But when you don't know what to expect, it always turns out good in the end."
Moss spoke about leading the cheers in the locker room before heading to the podium after Sunday's win over the Bengals.
"It's something you just don't see, because it's behind closed doors," Moss said. "I don't mean this in a negative way, but I live for my teammates and coaches and really don't care too much about what other people think because when it's all said and done, we win together and we lose together. They know me and I think in a certain way it's important for the people here that support our organization to know me, but it's kind of hard to do when you don't know what's right and what's wrong."
Moss was asked about Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who in the offseason made some derogatory comments about the Patriots wide-out.
"I think it's well deserved," Moss said of Revis's right to speak up. "I think that the season that he had last year can definitely put him on that pedestal to say what he wants to, but the only thing about saying what he wants to is you gotta be able to back that up when it comes game time."
Moss said he's feeling the outpouring of love since the controversial timing of his remarks about his contract after Sunday's win over the Bengals.
"I do feel it," Moss said. "I kind of feel a little disappointed about the comments but I think that at the end of the day, I gotta protect me. I'm not the only Moss in my family, there's a million more Moss's in my family that look up to me for guidance and that's really what I'm trying to do is try to look out for the best interests in the future of the Moss family."
