While most of the media has focused on the impending retirement of Baltimore’s iconic Linebacker Ray Lewis and San Francisco’s hot young quarterback Colin Kaepernick, one of the unsung heroes of the 49ers run to Super Bowl XLVII remains under the radar despite his stellar career in the NFL. That player is veteran wide receiver Randy Moss, who had an outstanding career while playing with the Minnesota Vikings, then later the New England Patriots. Moss stunned the sports world Tuesday by proclaiming himself as the “greatest receiver of all time”.
Gotta give Moss credit, he’s not shy at all. Wearing a 49ers uniform, which was once donned by the man most fans regard as the greatest receiver to ever play the game, Jerry Rice, Moss says that distinguished title belongs to him. Even Rice himself was caught off guard with that comment from Moss on Media Day at the Super Bowl. The only problem for Moss in making that assessment of himself is that he has no jewelry to show for it. Rice however, has won Super Bowls, and holds all of the pertinent NFL receiving records.
