Randy Moss Got Served By A Guy Who Was On “Dancing With The Stars”

And who also happens to be the greatest wide receiver to ever play football.

During Super Bowl Media Day, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss gave this very telling quote:


Moss: “I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.”— Jeff Howe


Moss: “I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever play this game.”— Jeff Howe

6. Randy Moss’ Stats:

7. Jerry Rice’s Stats:

8. Randy Moss and Jerry Rice:

9. Oh, and there’s another big one: Jerry Rice has won three Super Bowls. Moss has won zero.


Moss’ yards per reception is higher. Rice has him beat EVERYWHERE ELSE. While Moss’ numbers are incredibly impressive per game, it’s no coincidence that Rice played in so many more games. Moss famously said he played when he wanted to play, and attitude/effort issues dogged him his whole career, whereas Rice was and remains one of the hardest-working and most dedicated guys to ever play in the NFL. With his tremendous big-play abilities and bursts of dominance, Moss could potentially argue that he’s the most talented receiver of all time, but certainly not the greatest — his résumé just doesn’t hold up against the Dancing with the Stars runner-up.

10. Guess what Rice had to say? I bet you can guess. (This is an actual quote.)

11. On the bright side: At least Moss didn’t lose a dancing competition to Drew Lachey.
