It's official. The New England Patriots can get anyone to conform to their team concept because they've done so with receiver Randy Moss.
In the past, Moss has sounded off to the media when he doesn't get the ball. But after just two catches in the playoffs, Moss has not complained.
"The last couple of games, I've been taken out of the game," Moss said Wednesday. "With this being my first Super Bowl, you would think that I would want the ball. At this point, I just want to win."
Moss also talked about how the Green Bay Packers showed interest in trading for him last offseason. But Moss said he hung up on them because they kept talking about "the wrong things."
Asked about the problem, Moss explained that the Packers stressed to him that he would have to accept that Donald Driver is still the No. 1 receiver and team officials repeated how he would have to behave. Moss said he thought Green Bay just had the wrong impression of him.
"I felt Brett Favre wanted me but the Packers organization didn't," Moss said.
Moss then touched on how he wants to retire with the Patriots but acknowledged that he didn't know what would happen in free agency.
