Randy Moss doesn’t talk to the media very often, but when it was mandatory he take part of Super Bowl media day on Tuesday, he did not disappoint.
“I think now that I’m older, I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever do it,” Moss said from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. “This year has been a down year for me, statistically. The year before I retired was a down year, and then in Oakland was a down year.
“I don’t really live on numbers. I really live on impact and what you’re able to do out on that field. I really do think that I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.”
Whoa! Randy Moss dropping bombs! Maybe this is why he doesn’t talk to the media any more.
Anyway, a certain receiver who used to wear the same uniform Moss wears today might have something to say about Moss’ remarks. His name is Jerry Rice.
Randy Moss said he’s the greatest all-time WR. To which @jerryrice just said, “Put my numbers up against his numbers.”
