Randy Moss Further Tarnishes Legacy with Ridiculous Comments

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

If he wasn’t already there, Randy Moss is now most certainly delusional after his latest comments.

“I don’t really live on numbers. I really live on impact and what you’re able to do out on the field. I really think I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.”

Of course, he added that he meant no disrespect to Jerry Rice with these comments. Of course you didn’t Randy.

I’ve always kind of been a Randy Moss fan, and I was even kind of rooting for him to finally win a ring this Sunday, but now I’m not so sure. I mean, are you serious Randy? You really think you’re better than Jerry Rice?

Moss says he doesn’t live on numbers, well he apparently doesn’t look at them either, because he’s no where near breaking any of Rice’s all-time receiving records, not to mention Super Bowl rings – Rice has three of them.

People who already dislike Moss, will now probably hate him, especially if they like Rice. To make these comments is one thing, but to make them at Super Bowl media day while preparing to play for Rice’s former team, is just flat out disrespectful.

Now, if we’re talking most talented receiver of all-time, Moss may have a point. I’m not sure anyone has ever had more talent and ability than Moss at the receiver position, but again that’s where he becomes delusional. Talent is only half the battle. I know Moss doesn’t know this, but there’s this thing called “work ethic.” You know, where players show up every single day and work hard to make their teams better.

Delusional is now just another word we can add to the long list of words that describe Randy Moss which already included: quitter, selfish and egomaniac. Now Randy Moss is a delusional-selfish-quitter-egomaniac. Certainly not to be confused with being the greatest receiver of all-time. Give me a break.
