Hi guys. A couple of things:
1) My friend and colleague Tom Sorensen advocates the Panthers looking seriously into Randy Moss for the 2012 season in this column. I think it's a terrible idea. Moss not only is the wrong age (35), but the speed that made him special isn't there anymore. Bottom line: Can't play. The Panthers already have David Gettis on the roster, remember -- he and Brandon LaFell should be the No.2 and No.3 wideouts next season, with Steve Smith No.1. This team could use an influx of veterans at a position or two, but not there.
2) Attention all N.C. State fans -- I'm writing a column for Thursday about the Wolfpack and coach Mark Gottfried, whom I interviewed recently and who has already had more ACC wins this season than Sidney Lowe did in any of his five years in Raleigh. We'll have a video to go along with this column and it will be posted a day in advance, on Wednesday. Please keep an eye out for that.
3) Happy Valentine's Day! Not to get all mushy on you, but I do very much appreciate all those who read this blog regularly and comment on its contents with thoughtfulness and passion. Thank you.
