I loved that line. One of my friends decided to do the math on the impact of that fine to his paycheck for that year. He figured it was like someone working a summer job making $9.50/hour getting fined for 1 hour of work. Boy that must have been painful for him...
Based on this assertion, Timmy Smith, Ottis Anderson, and Clarence Davis are all better RB's than Barry.
I am not concluding whether he's the best WR or not, I just think he's a loser and I'm betting against any team he is on to win the championship.
Best Randy Moss line ever...
In response to a reporter asking him about drug use - "I don't do drugs. I just smoke weed."
Get out of here with that garbage. Check the history books? Which database column holds the value that adjusts for level of competition or the offense he played in? If you're basing your argument off stats, Cris Carter played 6 average seasons, a couple of good ones and then Randy Moss came in and stole his show. Marvin Harrison had the best QB in NFL history throwing to him and Reggie Wayne lined up opposite to him. He had a very Tim Brown like career, very solid but didn't demand the double teams like Moss. Reed, maybe top 10 but not better than Moss, that's for sure. Some of the others are like comparing Ty Cobb or Babe Ruth to Barry Bonds.
He had the talent to potentially be one of the best, but because he was a cancer, an enigma, he will be considered one of the better WRs during his time 'statistically', and nothing more. Shit, during his time , I would still take a Rison, Muhammad, or Mason. Fucking loser.
Oooops, forgot about a guy who matched his physical gifts, but also had big play capability in big games: Plaxico

Who are you, Mr. Law? Or Pomeroy? What a joke.
Agree with this. Physical talent? Probably the best ever(until Megatron?).
IMO, to be the best ever at a position you need both physical talent and winning attributes(leadership, club house persona, etc.). Jerry Rice dominates the 2nd part.
You just unveiled your biggest gaffe when comparing Moss with Rice, let alone anyone else that was committed to a team. He wasn't. It was all about Randy, and thus, would NEVER have stuck around with a team that long.
Cant disagree. It is the old debate of impact and skill vs longevity. How many people think emmitt smith was better than Barry?
Moss has chronic ankle problems which stopped him from destroying every stat that they keep for wr's. But at his peak there is not anyone that is even a close second.
I'm gonna play when I wanna play, I'm gonna do what I wanna do, I'm gonna say what I wanna say... Did I say anything stupid today?
Saw this on Sunday NFL Countdown! http://www.porterhousemedia.com/

Jerry Rice and probably 50 others at that position. He's a dumber version of Deon Sanders. "I'm the greatest CB in the game" . "Oh shit, there are a lot of Hall of Famers who were badass."
Rice should never have to respond to this crap. But hey, its ESPN, he was probably forced to respond to get his paycheck. Journalism integrity is the new name for espnis.
unfortunately I missed the neg-button. Charles Rogers? Are you high?
Moss also played in more of a passing era with rules that were more wide receiver friendly.
You serious, Clark?
Seems to me if we're talking about a guy who says he's the best receiver in history and some of you dopes are putting him high on such a list, it's probably good to include receivers from, you know, THROUGHOUT HISTORY.
Jerry rice is the only WR better IMO.
Moss was unbelievable at tracking down deep passes.
He had about 3 seasons where he was uncoverable.
Megatron is good but he doesnt score touchdowns like moss.
Moss belongs in the conversation. His claim reinforces his unlikable diva status, though.
He thinks Mark Duper is better than Randy moss enough said.
Because half of those WRs are on a different page of the book... Maybe you have an out dated copy???
Fixed it for you

Jerry Rice reminds me of BJ Cunningham. Gonna catch everything thrown to him, but don't expect to see the impossible. Would anyone say Cunningham is the greatest WR in State history simply because he holds all the records? No. I feel the same way about Rice.
Is Moss the most supremely talented ever? Probably. Greatest? Depends on the definition of the word.
Honestly, what the fuck are you talking about?
Honestly, what the fuck are you talking about? All those guys played in the NFL. Had Moss said he was the best WR from the past 15 years, my response would be off-point. But he didn't say that. He said "history".
Do you have any idea how good some of those guys were? Shit, by your account, you have to throw Rice out because he had such a great QB throwing to him.
Largent was a stud and earned every reception. His frigging Qb was Jim fucking Zorn. Same with Carter. Who was his QB? Randall Cunningham? Brad Johnson ? Yeah - you don't have to be good to play with those guys and do what he did.
You might need to go back and look at the tape yourself. Mark Duper? Lance Alworth?
Moss had 11 seasons with over 1000 yards and 9 seasons with double digit TDs, including three years with 23, 17 and 17. He might not be the best, but he is certainly top ten.
Hell, Lynn Swann is the second guy you named and he NEVER had a 1000-yd receiving season and finished with about 1/3 of Moss' career yardage. To put it in perspective, here are the two guys ahead of and behind Swann on the all-time receiving yards list: Chris Calloway, Jerry Smith, _______, Reggie Langhorne, Bernie Casey.
