Randy Moss said on Media Day that he thinks he’s the greatest receiver in league history (Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE) Super Bowl week is upon us, meaning every player from each team gets a chance to speak to the media whether they like it or not. Randy Moss is known for being low-key when it comes to the media, and avoids it at all costs. This week he has to, and he’s unveiled a bit of how he feels about himself, saying he is the greatest receiver in league history.   Randy Moss, in response to a question from me, said: “I do believe I am the greatest receiver” in NFL history. — Jonny Saraceno (@jonnysaraceno) January 29, 2013   Moss is a great receiver, but I personally have to hand that title to Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice. Rice caught word of Moss’ revelation, and spoke out about it rather quickly.   Randy Moss said he’s the greatest all-time WR. To which @jerryrice just said, “Put my numbers up against his numbers.” — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 29, 2013   The numbers for Moss are good – 982 receptions for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns. We can’t deny those aren’t good stats. Rice’s numbers are 1549 receptions for 22,895 yards and 197 touchdowns. The numbers speak for themselves. Moss has had a great career, but nothing that compares to Jerry Rice. I’m glad that Moss has confidence heading into the Super Bowl though. He’ll be fighting for his first Super Bowl Ring, while Jerry struts around with his three.   Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Editor-in-Chief – Justin Arbogast @NFLGuy_SK The post Randy Moss: “I believe I am the greatest Receiver in NFL History” appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
