Super Bowl media day started today and my man Randy Moss dropped a bomb nobody thought was coming.  He's been pretty silent this season with the 49ers, just going about his business, but the media got the best of him today.  Moss claimed that he thinks he is the best receiver ever to play in the NFL. "I don't live off numbers," Moss said, noting he has had down years, including this year, hist time in Oakland, and before he first retired. "I live off impact. So I really do think that I'm the greatest receiver to play this game." Hall of fame receiver Jerry Rice, via Adam Schefter, responded saying, "Put my numbers up against his numbers."  Boston Considering Jerry Rice holds the record for receptions, yards, and touchdowns in his career, I'm going to have to respectfully agree with Jerry on this one.  Moss could easily have been the best receiver ever (had the best single season every for a receiver with 23 touchdowns), but the off field controversy pretty much highlighted his career.  Not to mention I don't think he could have lasted 20 years like the iron man Rice did.  With that said, I wouldn't mind seeing Moss get his first ring.
