    Who is the best WR of all time?

    Moss came out this week and claimed that he was the best WR of all time. I think that Moss is the most talented WR of all time, but Jerry Rice is the best by far. If Moss had the work ethic that Rice had, then he would probably be the best of all time

    Nobody that is as selfish and quit on their team as many times as Randy Moss can be in the conversation for the best of all time. And I'm a Vikings fan.

    Jerry Rice, no brainer.

    It is Rice... It could end up being Calvin Johnson, but he has to maintain his current level. Rice played for 20 seasons.

    Calvin Johnson is hands down the most physically gifted wr ever.

    Rice is hands down THE best wr ever.

    This may go down as the stupidest thing that Randy Moss has yet said.

    It's Jerry Rice, and I'm not sure that whoever is #2 can really pretend to be close to him.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Who is the best WR of all time?

    With his blocking, Hines Ward is the best all around WR, but if it's just the passing game, it's Rice.

    You could argue Randy Moss and Brandon Marshall are as physically gifted as Calvin Johnson. Marshall is probably stronger, and Moss was faster. Calvin is taller and attacks the ball better. But they are all freak athletes.

    Re: Who is the best WR of all time?

    It kills me that he said that while playing for the 49ers. What's really sad is that he is probably still the fastest receiver on his team and he barely plays. As good as Rice's QBs were none were as prolific as Brady for Moss's best season. Moss isn't top 5 for me. Great? Yes, but I think there is some level of intangible that is accounted for and a lot of guys surpassed him in that. Comparing across generations is next to impossible but what if Rice was in the league today with the passing numbers being put up. What if he spent a year with Brady? Rice is the benchmark. Johnson could surpass him BUT there will always be the question of the style of play.


    It's all snark from here on out
