Randy Moss made headlines for the first time this season, when he claimed he was the best wide receiver of all time. Even the average fan knows that is not true. I am not even going to take the time to write out all of the records the
Jerry Rice holds over Randy Moss, because it is all of them. Moss claiming to be a better WR than Rice is like Michael Bay claiming to be a better director than Alfred Hitchcock, there is a lot of flash to be wowed by but they just are not in the same class. If the numbers, or the lack of a Super Bowl win are not enough to convince you that Moss is not the greatest of all time, here are a few other reasons that no one should listen to anything Randy Moss has to say. January 2000- Moss was fined $25,000 for squirting an official with a water bottle on the sidelines. 2001- Moss was fined $15,000 for verbally abusing corporate sponsors on the team bus after a loss. 2001- Moss said to a reporter in response to being questioned about taking plays off that he plays when he wants to play. 2002- Moss was arrested for bumping a traffic control officer with his car and knocking her down. 2004- Moss was fined $10,000 for pantomiming "mooning" the Green Bay Packers' fans, and had this to say to to reporters about the fine.
2004- Here is the Fox NFL coverage of said "mooning."
Here is an example of Moss' undivided attention to the game of football.
Randy Moss had an incredible impact on the NFL and football as a whole. However, Randy Moss was no Jerry Rice. [via
