Randy Moss has said hardly anything to this point in his first season with the San Francisco 49ers, but he may have tossed out the quote of the week at Super Bowl media day on Tuesday. While answering questions from writers and reporters on Monday, Moss labeled himself the greatest receiver of all time. “I don’t live off numbers,” Moss said when asked about how much of a roller coaster his career has been, via Boston.com. “I live off impact. So I really do think that I’m the greatest receiver to play this game.” Jerry Rice was quick to disagree with Moss and asked that their numbers be compared. Of course, ESPN obliged: There’s no arguing that Moss is one of the most physically-gifted receivers to ever play. We were reminded of that during his incredible 2007 season with the New England Patriots, but a player’s career is defined by consistency and championships. Even if the Niners win on Sunday, Moss will have one Super Bowl ring compared ro Rice’s three. Not to mention, Rice led his Niners teams to championships whereas Moss has more or less been along for the ride this season. If nothing else, Moss’ natural talent and impressive resume will give the Baltimore Ravens something to think about when preparing. He caught three balls for 46 yards against the Atlanta Falcons, so he is still more than capable of contributing. Had Moss given 100% effort throughout his entire career, he would have had a legitimate chance to go down as the greatest of all time. As we know, he did not, and Rice has the more impressive stat sheet and trophy case.
