Randy Moss Calls Himself the Greatest Receiver Of All-Time, Twitter Disagrees


Nothing gets Twitter going like a grandiose declaration about a player’s place in history. And it’s even better when the player makes the declaration about himself. Tuesday morning during Super Bowl Media Circus, Randy Moss declared himself the greatest receiver of all-time. Sparking thousands of “Randy Moss is an idiot, Jerry Rice is the greatest receiver of all-time” statements. A sampling of Twitter’s overreaction:

 

 

 

 

Even Jerry Rice himself got in on the act. Well yes, Rice probably is the greatest receiver of all-time. And Randy Moss is probably second. Somewhere out there, an old timer is screaming “What about Don Hutson?” Well it’s all relative. In his day, Hutson was the greatest. If he played now he’d be lucky to make a practice squad. That’s just reality.

It’s fun watching everyone get worked up at any rate. Even if, at the end of the day, Moss’s statement is just more hot air being pumped up the media’s collective anus. Moss is just out there having fun with reporters. He doesn’t talk to them during the season so he has a lot of material saved up. Maybe next he’ll declare himself to be Spartacus.

Keep stirring it up Moss. We love ya.

    Randy Moss wasn’t even the greatest Viking WR of all-time. Cris Carter was. He missed only 4 games in his 12 years in Minnesota, was the all-time master of the sideline catch, dominated the jump ball in the corner of the endzone, and never took plays off. Moss was just flashier to watch.
