Randy Moss caught 982 passes in his NFL career from 20 quarterbacks. In his new job as an analyst with Fox Sports, his coworkers tried to test his knowledge during a pre-production meeting — could Moss name all 20?
A few are pretty obvious: Tom Brady, Randall Cunningham, Daunte Culpepper and Brett Favre, among them. Even football novices surely could come up with his two quarterbacks from last season with the San Francisco 49ers, Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick.
Brady once said Moss was one of the smartest football players he ever had met, and other teammates have talked about how funny Moss is — especially when the media cameras and microphones are stashed away. (Although, to be fair, Moss has had his share of classic moments when the tape is running, too.)
Both elements of Moss' personality are on display as he steps to the whiteboard in this video in which he has a few spelling stumbling blocks, cracks up the staff throughout with his antics and then brings the house down when he comes up with the final one, Jay Fiedler (or "Fielder," whatever).
Can you name them all? For those scoring at home, here are the remaining names, minus the ones mentioned above, and some of them great blasts from the past: Brad Johnson, Jeff George, Todd Bouman, Gus Frerotte, Kerry Collins, Andrew Walter, Matt Cassel, Vince Young, Aaron Brooks, Spergon Wynn, Rusty Smith, Marques Tuiasosopo and Brian Hoyer.
Quite a group.
