Moss sandbagged reporters Monday

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer

This is how the Associated Press reported the candidacy of Green Bay assistant head coach Winston Moss for the Raiders coaching job on Monday:

The Green Bay Packers assistant head coach says he has not been contacted about the Raiders’ head coaching vacancy as of Monday afternoon but would welcome the chance to talk to them.

“If the Raiders were to call and ask, I’ll be ready to speak with them,” said Moss, who also coaches the Packers’ inside linebackers. “But nothing’s changed from last week. I feel good where I’m at. If there’s an opportunity that comes up in the future, we’ll probably cross that bridge at that time. But at this present time, right now, not a lot to talk about.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Moss actually talked to the Raiders Saturday, two days before he told the AP he hadn’t.

Coaches bend the truth all the time, although many will opt for a “no comment” rather than an outright untruth.

Either way, if the ESPN report is correct, Moss would appear to be ready to be head coach of the Raiders when it comes to the release of information.

    I bet you Belichik would trade us Moore for Routt tomorrow.

    Agreed with BCZ – unless you take contracts into consideration.

    if money isn’t in the equation (which it is!), player for player Stan Routt is twice the corner Sterling Moore ever will be
