Top 3? Top 5? Top 10 or beyond?
Stats wise he is #2 all the way. I say top 3 because you will have people that are able to argue for another name in there besides Jerry Rice.
IMO Top three WR's all time are - Rice, Fitz, Moss
Of guys I remember/saw play:
1. Rice - incredibly lucky but still the GOAT
2. Moss - “wrecked the league”
3. T.O. - grading strictly on ability/production although he was a horse’s ***
4. Fitz - incredibly longevity and playoff production
5. Carter - less of a downfield threat than Fitz so I’ll put him below
6. Calvin - if you wanted to put him higher based on pure peak I wouldn’t argue
*probably missing someone obvious*
number 2 behind Rice
this list is fair.
Rice, Moss, TO, AB, Julio & arguably Megatron. Top 6.
Can’t sit here and say Moss being that high is ok and complain about Patrick Peterson not being physical.
Moss flat out refused to go over the middle, block or support the run game. Hell he flat out quit and just stopped trying at points of his career.
talent wise Moss is as good as they come but he didn’t put in the work Rice, Fitz or T.O did.
uhh Moss broke defenses before you couldn’t get physical with WR’s and pass-happy rule changes were instituted. Like 5 QB’s had career years throwing to him.
I have Fitz 3rd over TO.
I’d say 3rd all time best WR.... 4th all time if we are including Q
we’ve been lucky as a franchise to have him for 17 years. But it’s time to move on...
I have Fitz 2nd.
Rice - Best Ever.
Fitz - #2
Moss - This is subjective IMO but Fitz did more.
If he gets to #1 in catches (2 more years), he is clearly over Moss IMO.
#2 all time in receiving yards.
Only he and Rice have 11 Pro Bowls.
The Consecutive games with a catch streak. #2 now and may break it in 2021.
And to me..... He is the most clutch postseason WR of all time. This has weight to me and was proven over multiple playoff runs. Again though, only he or rice can lay claim to this.
And then you get into drop rate.
And his tackles versus drops stats.
How can Moss or TO be above all of that?
how was he more clutch then Rice?
More All-Pros while having higher peaks.
You can make a case that Fitz was never the best WR in a single season unlike Moss & TO.
Considering the career just behind Rice
If he gets more TD’s than Moss I will put him over. As it stands he trails by 35... Sorry but Randy was just more of a game changer.
Also forgot to add Isaac Bruce to my list who was elite before the GSOT.
