Randy Moss sent subtle shock waves through the NFL when he claimed that he is the greatest receiver in NFL history.
Well the one that many believe is in fact the G.O.A.T., Jerry Rice, has responded to Moss’ claim.
“I’m very surprised Randy Moss used that in those words, that he’s the greatest,” Rice said on ESPN’s “NFL Live.” “You’d never hear me say I’m the greatest football player to ever play the game. I let my body of work speak for itself, and I think I was able to be very productive on the football field.”
“You have to look at the stats, you have to look at how you impacted the game, and it’s all about winning this right here, this is it, the Super Bowl, and I was fortunate to win three,” said Rice, who was rightfully ranked No. 1 on the NFL Network’s ranking of the top 100 players of all time in 2010. “Randy he finally has a chance to prove himself this weekend, and I wish him the best.”
Well, there it is. To claim you’re the best you have to have the hardware to back it up. Just ask Lebron James.
Moss has always been a cocky player, and I’ve always liked that edge about him, so his remarks don’t surprise me. But we all know who the greatest is, and he has the stats and rings to prove it.
