During an appearance on Pro Football Talk, 49ers’ Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana came on and made it clear that even though Randy Moss  believes he’s the greatest wide receiver of all time, he can’t do the things Jerry Rice did during his career. “I just think that he can’t do all the things that Jerry could do,” Montana said. “Randy will get behind you and he’s pretty good at going up and down the field. But going across the middle and catching little 10-yard crosses and 5-yard shallow crosses and turning them into a big play by making people miss, that’s not going to happen. He may outrun you, but he’s not going to make you miss. “He’s a great receiver, but he’s not Jerry Rice.” I agree with Montana.  Rice was an all around great player, whereas Moss can only do a couple of things great.  There’s also no comparison when it comes to how hard Rice worked and how focused he always was.   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); })();

Joe Montana Says Randy Moss Can’t Do All The Things Jerry Rice could do

Randy Moss caused a stir when he took over Super Bowl media with the comments that he’s the greatest wide receiver to ever play the game.  Jerry Rice, who many consider to be the GOAT, took exception to those comments and calmly disagreed.  Now the guy who threw so many touchdown passes to Rice has an opinion of his own. Joe Montana appeared on Pro Football Talk, and in his...

Randy Moss’ career is likely over

After an average season for wide receiver Randy Moss, I believe it’s almost certain he’ll retire.  He’s clearly not the same player and wasn’t happy about his role with the 49ers in 2012. Even though head coach Jim Harbaugh has indicated he wants Moss back, it doesn’t mean Randy will want to play for him next year.  I also can’t imagine any other teams wanting to bring...

Randy Moss: From Freak to ‘T. Rex’

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss used to be known as the “freak” in his younger years, because of his freakish athleticism and speed. But his new nickname should be “T.Rex”, because of his ancient age, and lack of ability to go get the ball at its highest point. After examining Moss’ play on the 49ers this season, and Super Bowl XLVII, showed that he doesn...

Joe Montana: Randy Moss can’t do all the things Jerry Rice could do

Randy Moss made waves during the week leading up to the Super Bowl when he confidently proclaimed himself to be the greatest receiver to ever play in the NFL.

Naturally, Rice’s former quarterback also believes...

Would Moss, Birk go as Vikings if HOF called?

Randy Moss and Matt Birk were long-time Pro Bowl players with the Vikings, but they made it furthest in the playoffs with other teams. That brings up an interesting dilemma for both: If they make the Hall of Fame, would they go in as Vikings?

Randy Moss ‘Alligator Armed’ Colin Kaepernick Interception, According to Bill Romanowski

Randy Moss took a lot of heat for his performance in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday. The legendary wide receiver caught just two passes for 41 yards on five targets. That unimpressive stat line may have been due to lack of effort, according to four-time Super Bowl champion Bill Romanowski. “Randy Moss, he alligator armed it. He didn’t go up for the ball,” Romanowski said emphatically...
