Tom Brady's introduction into the New England Patriots Hall of Fame on Wednesday has attracted plenty of notable people to the ceremony. From his longtime head coach Bill Belichick to his biggest rival Peyton Manning, another important figure who sat at the tribute was former wide receiver Randy Moss.

The current NFL analyst who spent almost a decade at ESPN played with Brady for three and a half seasons in New England - two, if you discard 2008, when the quarterback suffered a torn ACL during the first quarter of the season and missed the rest of the year. Together, they formed an unstoppable duo, although they failed to conclude the perfect 2007 season by losing to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl.

Moss was seen crying as his friend and former quarterback was introduced into the Patriots' Hall of Fame, and fans begged for the franchise to do the same to the wide receiver:

"One of the greatest regrets as a Pats fan is never getting to see Randy Moss lift a Lombardi. Dude was so damn special", said a fan
"One the greatest receivers in the history of the game. We were lucky to watch him play in a Patriots uniform. Thank you for all the great games.", another wrote
"This place was shaking. Such a great moment for a guy who wanted a ring more than anything", another said.

Randy Moss' time with the New England Patriots and Tom Brady - almost the perfect season

That was a clear case of what could've been. The wide receiver played a fantastic 2007 season with Brady, when they were perfect in the regular season. That year, Moss led the league with 23 receiving touchdowns, but obviously, it all got lost since the Patriots lost the Super Bowl and failed to complete the perfect season.

In 2008, Tom Brady got lost for the year after just one quarter. Randy Moss was also a great player in 2009, but he started to decline that year and never returned to his elite level. Although he's considered one of the best wide receivers ever, he never won a Super Bowl ring.
