In terms of talent and both in their prime with the right attitude I would take Moss by a slim margin over Rice.

No, but he could have been. Physical abilities, talent, yes he's arguably the best ever. IMO, there is more required than that to be the best ever though. Work ethic, teammate, leadership, character... Qualities Jerry Rice blows Moss away in.

Unfortunately for Moss, attitude is part of what makes one great. The fact that his attitude sucks may be the only thing which kept him from actually being the greatest WR ever, which he's not.

If we are measuring the better player, impact on a defense, talent, etc... it is of course Moss.If we are measuring careers, stats, etc ... it is of course Rice.I'd take Moss if I were drafting between the two in their primes.

I was starting to doubt you guys based on the posts above...could you really be that confused? Clearly Rice is the best WR of all time and it's not even debatable.

Tie between Rice and Moss

But then I saw the poll results. Almost 10 to 1 got it right. Totally redeemed.

Which "prime" are you referring to for Rice...When he was 25, and had 22 TDs in 12 games?When he was 29, in the middle of seven years of 1200 yards/10+ TDs?When he was 33, and went for 122-1848-15?Or maybe even when was 40, and went for 92-1211-7?

If you are looking for a fight on Jerry's stats, you picked the wrong guy/post.Thankfully you chose not to debate talent and impact on the field, which is why I draft Moss today, and probably Calvin a few years from now.

I guess I'm one of those old fashioned guys who thinks that talent and impact on the field generally show up in the stats. The talents I look for in a wide receiver are the ability to get open, the ability to turn positive plays into touchdowns, and the ability to make tough catches. I can't name a WR who was better at those things than Rice.

Because Rice didn't have an impact on the field. Opposing teams probably didn't look at the stats or how well he was doing until Moss was drafted.

Everyone voting no here would take prime Randy over anyone else if given the choice of having any WR suit up for their team at the start of the playoffs.

Is that 2001 Prime Randy who had 2 receptions for 18 yards in a 41-0 loss to the Giants? Or 2004 Prime Randy who had 3 receptions for 51 yards in a 27-14 loss to the Eagles? Or 2007 Prime Randy who had a total of 2 receptions for 32 yards in the first two playoff games?In the playoffs, Moss has averaged 3.7 receptions, 67 yards, and has 10 TDs in 14 games.Rice has averaged 5.2 receptions, 77 yards, and has 22 TDS in 29 games, and that includes 0/0/0 at age 42 for Seattle. Oh, and he has three Super Bowl rings and a Super Bowl MVP. What possible argument is there for choosing a physical freak diva over the greatest WR of all time in the playoffs?

One of the smartest things Moss has done in his career is to not talk to reporters. I guess he had to now that he is again in the SB limelight.I would rather hear Moss talking about how much he wants to win the SB than hearing him talk about his game as if he is already done.I think Jerry is funny for simply saying look at the numbers, with I am sure his cheesy Jerry Rice grin also. :football:

There were points in his career where moss was harder to defend than rice, which is more than most other guys can say.

Getting open and catching the ball are the primary talents I care about in my WRs, and nobody had more talent in these categories than Rice.

My favorite part is Jerry felt he needed to come on ESPN and say how Moss is wrong.... No Rice isn't a prima Donna

AYFKM?Oof. What a #######. Let someone else do that for you. Just look an insecure tool doing that yourself.

Everyone voting no here would take prime Randy over anyone else if given the choice of having any WR suit up for their team at the start of the playoffs.

impact on the field, which is why I draft Moss today, and probably Calvin a few years from now.

Besides Rice, who would you put ahead of Moss on the all time list? Owens? Tim Brown? Harrison? Cris Carter? Not too many players jump out that a strong argument could be made for.

I wouldn't put him above Moss, but as one of the resident Seahawks fans here I'll certainly offer up Steve Largent as a name that should be in the discussion. He held many of the records that Jerry Rice broke.

I think Randy Moss is the most talented wide receiver to ever play the game. It's too bad he didn't use that talent to become the best wide receiver to ever play the game.

Resume and talent may be #2 all-time. But if 32 GM's were drafting all-time teams not sure whether he's even a top 10 WR picked. Why would you draft him if you could take another HOF WR who won't detract from the rest of the team?If we are throwing stats out the window, which many seem to be, and talking pure game-changing talent who would take Moss over Calvin to pair with their stud QB?
