  • What is the legacy of Randy Moss?

    Is he the best WR of all time?

    Receptions 855
    Receiving Yards 13,342
    Receiving TDs 135

    NFL records and statistics

    Most receiving touchdowns as a rookie: 17
    Third in receiving yards by a rookie, with 1,313 (trailing Anquan Boldin and Bill Groman)
    Moss has caught 13 or more TDs in a season five times; only Terrell Owens and Jerry Rice have done so more often.
    Moss has caught 17 or more TDs in a season three times; no other player has ever done so.
    Moss has averaged at least one receiving TD per game played in four different seasons: 1998 (17 TDs in 16 games), 2003 (17 in 16), 2004 (13 in 13), and 2007 (23 in 16); no other player has ever done so.[39]
    He had back-to-back 100 catch seasons, in 2002 and 2003. He, along with Wes Welker, Sterling Sharpe, Jerry Rice, Herman Moore, Cris Carter, Marvin Harrison, and Rod Smith are the only receivers to accomplish this feat.
    At the end of the 2007 season, Moss averaged 12.4 receiving TDs per season, an NFL record.
    He had 1,200+ yards receiving in each of his first 6 seasons, setting an NFL record.
    In 2003, Moss became the second player in NFL history to average 100 yards and one TD per game in a 16 NFL game season, scoring 17 touchdowns and 1,632 yards.
    In 2007, Moss became the only player in NFL history to record four 100+ yard games in his first four games with a new team.
    Moss has eclipsed the 1,000 yard receiving mark 8 times in his career. He is tied for 3rd all-time in that statistic.
    Also in 2007, Moss set a record with 16 touchdowns in his first 10 games with a new team.
    On December 29, 2007, he set the NFL record for most touchdown receptions in a regular season, with 23. The record was previously held by Jerry Rice who scored 22 touchdowns in a 12 game strike season.

    No, he is not. He is however (imo) the best receiver of his generation and possibly the most talented receiver of all time.
    I can go into a whole oration about this but it pretty much sums it up.


    Saints 2014 draft wish list:
    - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
    - Corner or Wideout in the first
    - No reaching
    - No Kelvin Benjamin

      definitly the most talented w.r. ever (calvin johnson is VERY close)...if he was with brady or manning his entire career he would own every record.

        <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
        <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

          When he's at the top of his game, nobody I have seen has ever been better. However, consistency matters and Rice was WAY WAY more consistent than Moss. Rice was also never a distraction and never dissapeared in big games like Moss has at times.

            Second greatest receiver ever, best deep threat ever.

            Might open up more for his teammates than any other receiver, being on the two highest scoring teams of all times does say something.

              Here's my argument for Moss No. 1 all time.

              A great receiver makes his team better. No receiver has done that more than Moss. Like Saints-Tigers said, being on the two highest scoring teams of all time does say something.

                We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

                  Not even Randy Moss can save the Raiders.

                    Randy Moss makes team elite from good, not elite from bottom of the league terrible.

                      I know no one really pays attention to his blocking but some people that talk about Rice is exactly that. He was a good blocker.

                          One of the best ever but it's hard to take him over Jerry Rice.

                              Best ever? No One of the best ever? Yes

                              Like others have said maybe the mosted gifted WR ever but that doesn't make him the best ever Jerry Rice end of thread.

                              To me WR is the only position in the game that you can say 100% that one guy is for sure the best ever there is a debate and for good reason with the rest.
