    Rice is easily the best receiver ever. He played and worked hard his entire career. After all the success he had,he still didn't think he was doing enough and said he strived to be better every day. Rice doesn't quit.Moss is one of the best but to say he is the best is just insane.

    As does T.O., Ochocinco, etc. They all probably think they were the best and that attribute could be linked as to why they all were elite. I guess confidence is better than the opposite though.

    Moss may be in the top 5, but he is not near Rice IMO. Although defenses were altered because of Moss, that doesn't make him the best of all-time.

    Two great receivers in two different eras, hard to compare. I would still take Irvin over Moss any day of the week.

    At one time Moss was the most dangerous WR I've ever seen. He's still good. Very good. The greatest ever??? Not my pick but he's up there in the stratosphere.

    Considering era differences, it's hard to conceive of a reason Rice would not be considered the greatest of all time. He's in the consideration for greatest football player, regardless of position, of all time.

    I think he's one of the top ten all time but he's not the best. I'd have to also go Jerry Rice. Class act.

    Rice may be the best football player ever, never mind WR. Moss might have been the most gifted WR. Don Hutson was more dominant in his day as well.

    Jerry Rice over a whole Career id rather have over any receiver in NFL history. But who would you rather have for 1 season in the Prime of there respective Careers??? Give me Randy Moss for that one season. Randy Moss was just so so dangerous. But if i were building a franchise i would take Jerry over Randy in a heart beat. I think that Moss' stats in 14 seasons are better that Rices first 14 years in the NFL. I dont know that for sure ill do some research and see if i can find that.

    If you gave Moss Jerry Rice's work ethic then sure he would be. Moss is Top 5 for sure though.

    Jerrys 1st 14 seasons are much better tha Randy Moss' first 14 seasons i was wrong.
    Jerry
    Rec: 1139
    Yds: 17,542
    TD: 164

    Randy
    rec: 982
    yds: 13,992
    TD: 156

    Which makes Randy Moss' seasons where he actually played decent really impressive because the last 5 years or so of Moss' career are just terrible

    The era of Rice was the era where DBs could actually cover, though Moss played a little bit in that era I believe...

    That alone should be taken into consideration when talking abuot WRs.

    Moss is the best of this generation but would have been the best of all time if he didn't have his lost years in Oakland. Moss stats isn't padded as others but he was a beast in his prime.

    I agree. Which if we take that into consideration then i think Don Hutson should be considered the greatest of all time. in just 116 games (11 year Career)

    Don Hutson
    Rec: 488
    Yds: 7991
    TD: 99

    All in an era where running the ball was KING. and only 10 games a year were played

    Probably not over rice or the playmaker, since moss never wanted to go across the middle until he went to new england....and still not that much.
