Two weeks is too long before the Super Bowl. All it provides is too much opportunity for players to make a fool of themselves in front of a microphone. For reporters, it’s like Christmas as players take the bait over and over and feed us with boneheaded statements. Here are some of the bytes we got in Media Week leading up to the Super Bowl.
1. Randy Moss, when asked about his place in football history:
“I really think I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.”
We are pleased with his confidence but let’s be real: Randy Moss is far from the best. Compare the career of Jerry Rice and it’s obvious that Moss isn’t in his league. Rice finished with 1,549 receptions, 22,895 yards and 197 touchdowns. All distant records. Lest you think that those records were just a matter of longevity, note that Rice had 14 seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving, including 10 straight seasons of 1,000+ yards and 9+ touchdowns, 12 All-Pro selections, and three Super Bowl championships. Randy Moss...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
I’m not surprised or even shocked that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss would come out on Super Bowl media week and say that he’s the best receiver of all-time. We all know Moss has pulled his share of antics through his career and this is just another one under his belt. I think it might just be that he knows that his career is almost over and he hasn’t lived up...
It has been reported that Randy Moss has broken his arm patting himself on the back. Meanwhile Jerry Rice has been unable to reach his own back, most likely due to the weight of the Super Bowl rings he has on his fingers.Randy Moss, the self-proclaimed greatest receiver ever to play the game, continued to be his own worst enemy Tuesday. "I think now that I'm older, I do...
Former Titans and current San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss told Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean that he believes he was “blackballed” by the Titans when they picked him up off waivers a couple of years ago.
“Why they claimed me, I really don’t know,” Moss said Wednesday. “There were some things where I could really tell I really wasn’t liked, and that was coming...
San Francisco wideout Randy Moss implied that he isn't planning on re-signing with the 49ers this offseason. SOURCE: Tom Curran, Comcast New EnglandFantasy Spin:Moss hasn't seen many targets from Colin Kaepernick this postseason and that obviously hasn't sat well with the veteran wide receiver. Some wondered if Moss might retire if the 49ers won the Super Bowl but it...
Randy Moss did star in the greatest Nike ad ever. #Waylon
On Tuesday during media day, Randy Moss for a brief period became the hot story during Super Bowl week, staking claim to the “greatest receiver ever” tag. Then Ray Lewis came along, and Moss became an afterthought.
But on Wednesday Moss reiterated his stance on who is the greatest player to ever play his position.
From CSN Bay Area:
“You make your own judgment,” he said....
There are many reasons to be impressed with what Randy Moss has accomplished in his career, but his claim to be the best wide receiver of all time doesn’t stand up in Jerry Rice’s shadow.
On Tuesday Randy Moss said he was the greatest receiver to ever play in the NFL. While he’s wrong about that, he may be the greatest receiver to ever play and not win a Super Bowl. So that got me to thinking about the best of the best to never get that Michael Strahan or [...]
Greatest of all-time at wide receiver? Probably not. But Randy Moss, who might be playing in his last game on Super Bowl Sunday, separated himself for changing the game like no other in the Super Bowl era. Our Matt Tevsh takes a look at the Packers’ connection to this.
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...
