Yes he said.  Moss took the stage quietly at Super Bowl Media Day in New Orleans, and after being relatively quiet all season, allowed himself some time to talk a little.

Randy Moss

There was a time when I used to say he was going to be the greatest receiver to ever play this game.  No I’m not on drugs! Moss doesn’t have any rings, nor does he have Jerry Rice’s work ethic, so he can’t be number 1.

Here how Moss ranks with Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens.

Jerry Rice: 1,549 receptions for 22,895 yards and 197 touchdowns.

Terrell Owens: 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns.

Randy Moss: 954 receptions for 14,858 yards and 153 touchdowns.

 

 

Rice ranks No. 1 in receptions, No. 1 in yards and No. 1 in touchdowns.

Owens ranks No. 6 in receptions, No. 2 in yards and is tied for No. 2 in touchdowns.

Moss ranks No. 9 in receptions, No. 5 in yards and is tied for No. 2 in touchdowns.

Randy Moss is top 5 at worst, but is he the GOAT, I can’t agree.
