The Randy Moss Effect, And Taking The Top Off The Defense

Andrew Sharp wrote about the Randy Moss situation over at SB Nation, examining how it all went so wrong so quickly in Minnesota, and the entire column is worth your time, but one bit in particular jumped out at me. It's the statistics of Wes Welker and Percy Harvin, without Moss and with Moss, respectively:

↵
↵

Wes Welker's three games without Moss: 14 receptions, 102 yards, 0 TDs

↵

Percy Harvin's three games with Moss: 19 receptions, 287 yards, 3 TDs

"Take the ball deep, take the top off the defense."

That's way catchier than it probably should be.
