As the team prepares for their big Week 16 matchup against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, a number of notable Minnesota Vikings news topics have emerged during the last 24 hours that seem worth discussing.
Some of the most intriguing topics feature Vikings Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss, an update on Minnesota's Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers, and some chatter about current Vikings pass rusher Marcus Davenport.
So, let's just go ahead and get right into all of it.
Vikings legend Randy Moss says he's the "greatest wide receiver to ever play the game"
Hall of Fame Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss recently joined comedian Kevin Hart on Hart's YouTube show, "Cold As Balls" and the former Minnesota All-Pro immediately made a declaration that will surely create some disagreements among football fans.
Less than two minutes into the interview, Moss stated that he believes he is the "greatest wide receiver to ever play" in the NFL. The former Minnesota superstar explained that he believes he is the greatest to ever do it because of "the way he changed the game of football."
Moss certainly isn't wrong when he says he changed the game. During his playing days, opposing teams had to build an entire defensive game plan centered around stopping him. How many wide receivers in the history of the NFL can say that?
When it comes to evaluating Moss compared to some of the other great wide receivers in NFL history, one has to consider the quarterbacks who were throwing him the football, especially during his time with the Vikings.
Imagine if Moss had Hall of Famers Joe Montana or Steve Young throwing to him each week like Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice had during the majority of his career with the San Francisco 49ers? Moss's numbers with Montana or Young throwing him the ball would have been insane.
