    Randy Moss: I'm the greatest WR ever.

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2012...t-wr-ever-play

    Randy Moss wasn't bashful Tuesday when asked about his place in football history, declaring himself the "greatest receiver" to play the game.

    I don't really live on numbers, I really live on impact and what youre able to do out on the field. I really think I'm the greatest receiver to ever play this game.

    "Now that I'm older, I do think I'm the greatest receiver to ever do it," Moss said at Super Bowl media day in New Orleans.

    Moss acknowledged that this season with the San Francisco 49ers "has been a down year for me statistically" as was his 2010 season before he retired for a year and his last season with the Oakland Raiders (2006) before his trade to the New England Patriots. He said, however, that he doesn't think statistics should determine greatness.

    "I don't really live on numbers, I really live on impact and what you're able to do out on the field," he said Tuesday. "I really think I'm the greatest receiver to ever play this game."

    Moss, 35, will be a free agent after this season. ProFootballTalk.com, citing a source familiar with the receiver's thinking, reported Monday that he plans to play at least one more season.

    Moss had 28 receptions for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season for the NFC champion 49ers. He has five receptions for 71 yards in San Francisco's two playoff victories.

    Moss enjoyed his best season with the Patriots in 2007, when he caught 98 passes for 1,493 yards and a single-season record 23 touchdowns in helping New England to a 16-0 regular-season record.

    He has 982 catches for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns in his 14-season career.

    Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, who now is an ESPN NFL analyst, leads the all-time lists in those three categories with 1,549 receptions, 22,895 yards and 197 touchdown receptions.

    If he's saying purely how impactful he was in his prime.........maybe.
    And here comes NY to tell me how young and stupid and naive I am.

    LOL, yeah, if I ever finish my time machine I'll make sure not to go back and trade up for Watt. That would be a terrible idea.

    He's the greatest deep threat of all time. He changed what teams look for in a WR. But Rice is the best WR to play.

    The question is "Would you trade Randy Moss in his prime for Jerry Rice in his prime?"

    I think not.

    If Randy Moss had half the work ethic Jerry Rice had, he could have been. But he's not, and he never will be, because he was a slacker and a malcontent his entire career.

    I'd take Rice in his prime over any WR ever in their prime, call me a homer, but Jerry is the GOAT possibly at any position not just WR.

    He had the talent to be just not the work ethic. Rice is the best ever. I'd even take Calvin Johnson over Moss.

    Right now? Ahahahahahahahaha

    Calvin has the potential to outperform Moss on an all-time basis, but he is nowhere near Moss as of right now. No chance.

    It works the other way around. Most wouldn't trade a prime Jerry Rice for any player short of a QB, let alone Moss...

    What? Obviously the career numbers aren't but he's has close or ahead of Moss at the same age as you can be

    I love Moss. He's my favorite player from this generation but he doesn't touch Jerry Rice. Moss is the 2nd best.



    -I will say that Randy Moss had the most pure athletic ability out of any athlete I have ever seen though.
