Randy Moss made a career out of torching overmatched defensive backs.
Now that he’s hung up his cleats, he’s taken up a different kind of torching. And protesters aren’t going to like it.
During his appearance on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown,” the former Vikings and Patriots standout heaped praise on Houston Texans’ standout J.J. Watt for his efforts to aid the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
He also took time to rip what he described as the “losers” who were protesting racism while there were more all-encompassing human tragedies in the world.

Moss, 40, also pledged to help former NBA star Stephen Jackson’s relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey’s victims.
“Over the last month, we’ve had a lot of losers out here in our country protesting racism and doing a lot of negative stuff that puts a lot of bad shame on our country,” Moss said.
The term “losers” seemed to rub a lot of people the wrong way, but it seemed apt for the situation he was describing.
He didn’t elaborate on who exactly what he was talking about, but one can easily infer that he was talking about the growing dearth of NFL players who have been choosing the playing of the national anthem as their platform to protest racial injustices.
Moss compared the divisive nature of those protests with the unifying efforts of Watt.
“When you see the things that J.J. Watt is doing, bringing winners together — you know, bringing a community and a whole state together,” Moss said.
And that’s really the point.
There’s a time and a place for everything. Having an uncomfortable conversation about societal problems is fine. But frankly, it’s counterproductive to try to have those conversations during the national anthem. It’s divisive and probably does more harm than good for whatever cause is being championed.
Moss also pointed out the protests are coming at a time when there are so many more pressing issues facing the United States.
Harvey has already claimed many lives and the city of Houston needs as much aid as possible. Hurricane Irma is going to bring its own destruction to Florida.
The aid those people need transcends the divisions of race or ethnicity. The preservation of innocent human life is what’s most important.
