03:09 PM ET 01.29 | Moss was in good spirits, talking about the Niners' run, his painful past Super Bowl experience and his future. He also talked about his legacy ... and he wasn't shy about assessing his place in history. "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."

Ummm, no.
Earth to Randy Moss, there was another receiver who played for the 49ers...

People coming down on Moss for this, but other than Rice I hear no one else's name being mentioned....

This is true, and I still hope the Niners win and Randy gets his ring.

You didn't do squat as even you admit for many years. You've haven't got a clue about what you're talking about. You are a pathetic guy, Randy

Lynn Swann, Paul Warfield, John Stallworth, Don Maynard, Steve Largent, Cris Carter, John Mackey, Fred Biletnikoff, etc. etc. All had better work-ethics and were more productive that he has or had.

He's the greatest at playing a lot of games. Not necessarily football, though.

January 29, 2013  04:27 PM ET

The greatest without a ring...
Maybe!

January 29, 2013  05:08 PM ET

I think he probably just sells himself short. A truly humble guy who hasn't realized he's too good to even go into the Hall of Fame and be surrounded by that mediocre talent.

More productive as far as what? His numbers far exceed everyone on the list besides Chris Carter. If we are talking about winning pedigree than I can understand what you mean. I by no means think he is the greatest or even second greatest. But if he claims top five, I dont think anyone can really argue that realistically without being either being a hater or not recognizing what the man accomplished.

Didn't read your post before I posted Largent. Moss is not the best........unless of course you ask him.

It's good to hear Moss say he's the best receiver of all-time during Super Bowl week. He needs to perform on Sunday!

Any other time I'd say he's (Flacco called playing in nj this___). His numbers show he was unstoppable at times. But Rice never took a day off. Teams knew he was getting the ball and he still beat them. Moss could have been even better; so that makes me think he's not the best.
