Moss came out this week and claimed that he was the best WR of all time. I think that Moss is the most talented WR of all time, but Jerry Rice is the best by far. If Moss had the work ethic that Rice had, then he would probably be the best of all time
Calvin Johnson is hands down the most physically gifted wr ever.
Rice is hands down THE best wr ever.
You could argue Randy Moss and Brandon Marshall are as physically gifted as Calvin Johnson. Marshall is probably stronger, and Moss was faster. Calvin is taller and attacks the ball better. But they are all freak athletes.
It kills me that he said that while playing for the 49ers. What's really sad is that he is probably still the fastest receiver on his team and he barely plays. As good as Rice's QBs were none were as prolific as Brady for Moss's best season. Moss isn't top 5 for me. Great? Yes, but I think there is some level of intangible that is accounted for and a lot of guys surpassed him in that. Comparing across generations is next to impossible but what if Rice was in the league today with the passing numbers being put up. What if he spent a year with Brady? Rice is the benchmark. Johnson could surpass him BUT there will always be the question of the style of play.
