Lavelli 3.1 catches for 52.7 yards per game and 0.58 touchdowns per game

Here is Rice vs. other receivers of his era and shortly after.

Jerry Rice 5.1 catches a game for 75.6 yards per game and 0.65 touchdowns/game
Randy Moss 5.0 catches a game for 79.1 yards per game and 0.81 touchdowns/game
Sterling Sharpe 5.3 catches a game for 72.6 yards per game and 0.58 touchdowns/game
Wow, these are sketchy comparisons. Comparing Rice to Moss is akin to comparing Hutson to Lance Alworth. As for Sterling Sharpe, he retired in the prime of his career, after what could be considered his best professional season, and after what undoubtedly were the best 3 years of his career. Rice played for a good 5 years past his prime, bringing his averages down a great deal in the process.
