MOSS CONSIDERED HIMSELF THE BEST WR
Fri, 01 Feb 2013 01:30 AM EST

Randy Moss wasn’t shy when asked about his place in football history, declaring himself the greatest receiver to play the game.

“Now that I’m older, I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever do it,” Moss said at Super Bowl media day in New Orleans.

Moss recognized this season with the San Francisco 49ers “has been a down year for me statistically,” as was his 2010 season before he retired for a year and his last season with the Oakland Raiders (2006) before his trade to the Patriots. He revealed, however, that he doesn’t think stats should determine greatness.

“I don’t really live on numbers. I really live on impact and what able to do out on the field,” he claimed. “I really think I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.”

Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, holds all-time records with 1,549 receptions, 22,895 yards and 197 touchdown receptions.

Rice said that he was surprised by Moss’ comments.

“I impacted the game by winning Super Bowls,” Rice expounded. “… Randy is still trying to win his 1st one, and I just wish him the best, but I was very surprised that he claimed he’s the best receiver to ever play the game. I leave that up to my fans to make that statement.”

Moss, 35, will be a free agent after this season. A source familiar with the receiver’s thinking, announced that he plans to play 1 more season.

Moss confirmed the statement when he was asked about his future plans on media day.

“I’ve thought about it,” the 35-year-old Moss expounded, “I do wish to play another year.”

Moss enjoyed his best season with the New England in 2007, when he caught 98 passes for 1,493 yards and single-season record 23 touchdowns in helping Patriots to a 16-0 regular-season record.

He has 982 catches for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns in his 14-season career.

His days in New England were numbered before the season opener when Moss complained about not getting a contract extension and asserted he didn’t feel wanted. After week 4, he was traded back to Minnesota Vikings, his original team, but that did not last, either. Moss griped about then-coach Brad Childress and was waived, finishing out the dismal, miserable campaign in Tennessee.

Then a call from the San Francisco 49ers came, which had come up just short of the Super Bowl during his season away. They felt Moss was one of those players who might help them in getting over the hump – not so much for what he could do on the field, but the impact he might have on the youngsters in the locker room.

Moss started just 2 games, finishing with 28 catches, 434 yards and 3 TDs. But he had the desired result on Crabtree and Kaepernick, passing on his many experiences to those who will carry the franchise into the future.

”One thing that impressed me the most about Randy is the way that he works with all of the other guys, and not even just the receivers,” San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller said. ”He’s so well informed about the game of football that he coaches other positions and has all kinds of tips and reminders for everyone.”
