Found February 02, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
After claiming that he’s the greatest wide receiver in NFL history earlier in the week, the media asked Randy Moss who are the top five players at any position.  Moss left out quarterbacks since he believes they deserve their own category. “Walter Payton, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders,” Moss replied, per NFL.com. And then, a pause. “Ummmmm … you gotta put Terrell Owens in there.” I’m sorry, but there’s no way Owens is one of the five best players (excluding QB’s) of all time.  He was dominant at times, but dropped too many passes.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
