?The big thing that hit me through all this was this is a backup quarterback whose job is to be quiet, and sit in the shadows and get the starter ready to play Week 1.

?Yet he chose a time where all of a sudden he became the center of attention. And it has disrupted that organization. It has caused friction. And it?s torn at the fabric of the team.?

While Dilfer discussed the topic, Moss couldn’t help but show his emotion on his face.

There’s no question this will continue to be a tense topic moving forward.
