At 35-years-old and with his fifth NFL team, time hasn’t done much to diminish 49ers’ receiver Randy Moss’s confidence. That much was clear at media day in New Orleans on Tuesday, when Moss said plainly that he believes he is the best receiver in NFL history.
Specifically, per the Dallas Morning News, Moss told the assembled media members, “I really do think that I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.”
While Hall of Famer and Cowboys Ring of Honor member Michael Irvin, who was covering media day for the NFL Network, wouldn’t disagree with the fact that Moss has put together a great career--one that could be punctuated with his first championship next week--there is no argument about who the greatest of all time is. And it’s not Moss.
“Randy’s done a wonderful job in the NFL. He’s done some wonderful things,” Irvin said. “Numbers do count and especially when they lead to victories. That’s why I think everybody has to capitulate when it comes to talking about greatest receiver. Bar none, nobody’s having a conversation. It is Jerry Rice, period.”
