Jerry Rice doesn’t agree with Randy Moss’ ranking of all-time NFL wide receivers.
During an appearance on Terrell Owens’ podcast Moss said he and Owens were the top two receivers in NFL history and Rice was probably “third or fourth.”
Randy Moss says he’s the best receiver in NFL history when it comes to dominating the sport and changing the game of football. Terrell Owens is second. Jerry Rice is third or fourth.

“I’ll put myself first, I’ll put T.O. second,” Moss said. “I would put Jerry probably third or fourth. I’m talking about dominating the game and changing the game of football. I don’t live on statistics because if you live on statistics and live on championships that’s all political. You’ve seen guys released or cut from a team just by a couple words in the media. You’ve seen guys given contracts or you’ve seen guys not given contracts just because of the color of their skin. You’ve got to throw politics out of the game of football, and look at the impact of what each individual was able to make in the game of football.”
Despite Moss saying he doesn’t care about stats, Rice dropped a side-by-side comparison of their career stats which overwhelmingly shows the former Niners wide receiver was way more productive during his career.

While Moss probably has an argument as the all-time greatest receiver, putting Rice at #4 is extremely disrespectful.
