Moss' comments stir up Owens Friday, September 17, 2004 By DON BENEVENTO Courier-Post Staff PHILADELPHIA Terrell Owens began by suggesting that he had no intention of getting himself involved in a verbal duel with Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss. But Owens' intentions could not survive the first few questions he was asked at his weekly news conference onThursday. Asked how he reacted to Moss' contention that he ranks above all other receivers because no one gets the same type of fierce coverage, Owens stayed outwardly calm. But you had a feeling he was handling things differently on the inside. "That's great," Owens said of Moss' comments. "That's fine and dandy. I've always given Randy his credit and his just due because he's a great receiver. If he doesn't feel like I'm in comparison to him, that's great." But then Owens went on to get in some shots of his own. "My thing is, if I were thinking of great receivers who I'd want to be compared to, I would obviously say guys like Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin. Regardless of what (Moss) says, if I'm not compared to him, or he feels like he's on another planet, it doesn't bother me."
