Eric Moulds... What happened to him?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

What ever happened to him? He was a good player as a bill and played with the bills for a long time! Was there a bad wrap with him and buffalo when he left? You never hear about him anymore.

...sure was.....he got all bent out of shape when his consecutive catch string was broken with zero pass attempts his way....had his "publicist(??)" reported that "Eric was very upset with the Bills organization because his consecutive catch string was broken"...a huge TEAM RECORD, right?...he got into a big tussle with Moolarkey and Ralph had to fly in from Detroit to hold his hand and calm the diva down...burned every bridge on his way outta town to Houston....sure he was on the roster through some very frustrating times, but take the high road out.......

He had a terrific career with Buffalo.  During his final few years with the team, it was clear that his skills were diminishing.  He was no longer the explosive deep threat that he once once.  By the time he left for Houston, he was on the downside of his career.  At one time, he averaged 20+ yards per attempt on 67 receptions.  His yardage was down to under 10 yards per catch.   

 

Still he has a very very good career with the Bills and I’d love to see him leading the heard at a home game someday

I knew something was up, but was unaware of all that.

Keep in mind, this was 2005.  Moulds’ better days were behind him.  The team got rid of him, but you can’t blame them.  He was out of the league two years later

...here's a kid that was Ralph's prized possession......and to do what he did and how he did it, expressing his discontent through an effin' "publicist"?......guess his SECRETARY had the day off......lost ALL respect for him.....

 

Honestly, who cares? His talents were wasted on terrible teams, playing with terrible QB's and for terrible coaches.

 

Every single fan of the team has said much worse about the team than he has.

 

He was an awesome player and deserves to be remembered for that, not a single moment of frustration with the garbage organization he played for.

I seem to remember that we had to choose between Moulds and Pat Williams

 

Really wanted to keep Pat who went on to be pretty good for the Vikings.

Didn’t he also get into a bit of trouble on the famous Vikings booze cruise?

You only hear about former players if they get arrested or something. So no news is good news bro. /S

One of my favorites in the late 90’s, even got his Away Jersey. Known by many as the best WR in the league nobody knows about.

We all have bad days. Seems Eric Moulds thought pretty highly of Ralph Wilson.

I remember a few years back when Reggie Wayne played a whole game without a catch and the whole game the announcers were lamenting him losing his team record.

 

Well at the end of the game they threw him a little screen pass to keep his record going. There's no reason the Bills couldn't have done something like that for Moulds.

I agree.  These things mean a lot to players.   Mularkey didn't say this publicly but if I recall correctly it was rumored that he said he didn't know about the streak.

I knew there had to be something. I mentioned this a while ago but I was in his hometown of Lucedale, Mississippi a while ago and they had a sign saying that it was his hometown and the pic was him in a Titans uni.

Wouldn't surprise me, Mularkey didn't seem to know about a lot of things going on out on the field

Moulds was a hell of a talent. It's really too bad that he languished on terrible teams. I've had a few chats with him over the years as a bills fan and he's always been gracious and happy to talk about the team and his playing days.

Good to know. He was my favorite player as a kid. I grew up in the 90's and 00's, and he was the first player I really connected with. I loved watching him.
