The San Francisco 49ers haven’t gotten a ton of production out of Randy Moss in his first season with the team, but he hasn’t caused any problems either, which means San Fran has come out ahead so far. Or at least it had until the week before the HarBowl when Moss broke his two-year silence by saying he’s the greatest receiver of all time. We all knew this guy was crazy, but c’mon, man!
Moss is nowhere near the greatest receiver of all time, no matter what standard you use to measure. If you do it by rings, he’s not even in the conversation and Jerry Rice pointed that out when asked about Moss’ ridiculous comments. If everything goes right for the 49ers, Moss will get his first ring this year, but he doesn’t have one yet.
If you go by stats, he’s still not up there. Rice has him beat by so much in every single category that it’s not even a competition. Heck, even Terrell Owens has better numbers: more catches and yards. Moss has three more career touchdowns, so give him that, but Owens didn’t play this year.
Moss cites that it’s what he did while he was on the field that makes him the best, but there are easily half a dozen other receivers who impacted games in a more positive way than Moss, namely Michael Irvin. It’s an intelligent argument to say that Calvin Johnson has already passed Moss on the list as well and he’s just getting started. As mentioned, we all knew Moss was whack but this proves he’s completely lost his marbles.
