I agree with this aspect of your argument Creed. I just think there's a big difference in 'talent' vs 'skill'. Plenty of guys can run streaks and deep outs all day but very few can run exact and precise routes with regularity. That's why I personally don't use Rice and Moss in the same sentence when talking 'Best Ever'.
Fair enough. I dont think moss is.the best ever but.i.think he is higher up.than most people.have.him.
I don't like that Moss has felt he needs to claim that he is the greatest WR of all time.....as that's quite a list of truly incredible WR's.
But you'd have to have Moss in your top 10 if not top 5 of all time. He brought a size and speed to the position no one had ever seen.....
That being said....at the WR ;position....no one is better yet than Jerry Rice. Comparing Rice's 1st 14 years with Moss's career it's not even close.....as Rice's 1st 14 years is head and shoulders above Moss.
Not only is Jerry Rice the best WR ever....he's in the top 5 best players of all time according to CC. Not many would argue with that either....
In no particular order other than Rice
1. Jerry Rice
- Paul Warfield
- Tim Brown

That makes Carter shitty at two things: analyzing receivers and raising quality young men.
When Largent retired, he held all major NFL receiving records, including: most receptions in a career 819, most receiving yards in a career 13,089 and most touchdown receptions 100 as well as he was also in possession of a then-record streak of 177 consecutive regular-season games with a reception.
Largent was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995. In 1999, he was ranked number 46 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players, the only Seahawk on the list.
Not sure how anyone who knows anything about football could not have him on their list as one of the best.
Athletes are like salesmen. Wide receivers are your worst salesmen but think the company would fall apart without them. They're the employees who sit around all day waiting for the phone to ring, waiting for someone else to bring an order to them (or get the ball to them). Some of the biggest prima donnas in NFL history have been wide receivers--Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco Johnson, Randy Moss. They're a dime a dozen and the position that's most easily replaced.
Funny because I was listening to some talk radio and they had pointed out how Dallas gave up multiple first round picks to get WRs like TO and Galloway and how it really depleted them in other areas, when in fact WR is a position you should be drafting to fill...
"Any board that would ban 3yds is worthless"
if you look at this years super bowl teams with lack of diva WR's ... you may be right here IOWa
we all know why people put him on the lists ..
Just because you work at a BP doesn't mean you "work for the oil company" as a business man.
Boldin may not be a diva, but he's a stud (please remove any sexual overtones)
He has an argument.
Difference between Rice and Moss is while Moss is probably the more talented athlete, Rice would go over the middle. Moss is a little crybaby who's vagina hurts too bad and won't go over the middle. So in spite of his gifts, he is always going to be remembered to me as being a gigantic pussy who put his own needs ahead of the team.
Hello? Nobody gives a rats ass how many yards and TDs you caught when your team misses the playoffs, asshat.

Someone who plays when he feels like it isn't a consideration as an all time great. He'd not be on my team that's for sure.
