NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Hall of Famer Jerry Rice has no interest in a back-and-forth debate with Randy Moss during Super Bowl week about who’s the greatest NFL wide receiver of all time.
Rice has a strong opinion on the matter, yet insists he won’t come out and say he is the best ever. The former San Francisco 49ers star turned television man will offer one thought to Moss: Check the stats.
During media day Tuesday at the Superdome, Moss declared himself “the greatest receiver ever to play this game.” Rice says there’s a “big difference” between his body of work compared to that of the 35-year-old Moss, who returned to the league this season after a year off.
Rice gives Moss the nod of “most talented,” but added, “you’ve got to work hard.”
