MIAMI -- Patriots WR Randy Moss held a postgame press conference and was asked about being played man-to-man single coverage at times during the game.
“I don’t know why coach disrespected me like that," he said. "I’m who I am and I love to do what I do. Anytime I feel disrespected I want to go out there and make it happen. I think they disrespected me today by playing the single coverage and letting me do what I love to do, which is getting in the end zone.”
Dolphins DB Jason Allen often drew the assignment against Moss.
“I don’t really care who it is. I think if I see single coverage man to man I feel I can beat anybody in this league on any given day," Moss said. "I think today was just one of those days where it was something I hadn’t seen in a while. I always preach every time I see single coverage that most of the time the safety is over the top so it really looks like single, but it’s double. Double Moss. But today was single coverage. The safety stayed in the middle and the offense executed.
"I think we really came to play today. At times we spread it. We still have a lot to work on and this will be a hell of a week, getting ready to play Pittsburgh. They’re playing pretty good ball. Hopefully we’re up to the challenge."
Moss also commented on QB Matt Cassel.
"I think Matt is getting in a comfort zone and at the same time he’s getting in his we’re getting in ours. What I mean by that he has to not just feel out his receivers and running backs, but the offensive line out, too. I think the other team is getting a feel for how Matt is playing -- he’s playing some hellified ball -- and stepping up and we’re behind him.”
