Sorry, I disagree with Randy Moss. I do not care what one had the chance to do, came close to doing, might have done, tried to do, or could have done. One can insert any term for failure to reach potential that they want. The fact is that greatness is not based on unachieved potential. Instead, greatness is based on actuality. Randy Moss is not the greatest WR, nor will he be. But, to base his greatness on achievements that he did not make is just silly. Has everyone forgot that one gets credit for what one does.

I agree with Randy, you can't just look at numbers. You have to look at the impact he had. Look at what he did to the Raiders! They've never been the same. Or when he shot his way out of New England because he hated winning so much. Then he quit on the Vikings, that had an impact. Fans in Nashville still talk about his magical six-catch 2011 season.Needs: Brewers Pitcher Mark Rogers '04 pick

I'm not saying Moss is the greatest but when comparing Moss and Rice, Rice's QB's during his prime years was Joe Montana and Steve Young (HOFers) and Moss was who?? Oh the Great Dante Culpepper! I really do think a QB can make some difference. Moss's mouth allowed him to get moved from QB to QB and he still was pretty good. Tom Brady is certainly Mosses best QB but not for that many years. You can't deny the kids was looooaaaaded with talent. Probably wasted a lot and still has HOF numbers but the best ever......... lets see what he does in the next 5 years.

Moss's mouth also allowed him to be moved from team to team and many teams having zero interest in him despite his talents. Unfortunately being one of the greats of all time extends beyond talent and he doesn't grasp that. Perhaps if he didn't mail in a few seasons because he didn't feel like playing he would be in the conversation. And one last note, if you really are the greatest you won't need to tell people or argue for it. People will already know and sorry Randy....we don't.

Moss is confused when he said he was G.O.A.T. I think he meant G.W.O.T.O.A.L Greatest Waste Of Talent Of All Time. I will take passion and commitment any day over pure raw talent. Rice is the truest form of this never the best at anything just worked hard and made things happen. We will all be laughing at this thread in about 3-5 years Megatron has the tools and the drive to take out Rice as sad as it makes me to say.Looking for Jerry Rice, Larry Fitzgerald, Marion Barber III, Kevin Love, and Joe Mauer. Please PM me for faster response.

Everyones got their own opinons, some people don't have a mine of their own and just agree with everyone saying Rice is the best. He is one of the best, but just not THE best. Moss was the most talented WR ever and when he has decent QBS put up monster numbers. As a WR your only as good as the person throwing to you, and you obviously need good blocking. Moss' first 7 seasons stat wise was the best start ever by a WR then he wen to OAK,,, Not arguing he put himself in a few situations and opened his mouth at wrong times. People have a hard time seperating not likeing someone, and admitting there good at the same time. He is the best WR I will ever see no doubt.

I also still feel Emmitt was greater than Barry based on my definition of what I want from my RB. I need a guy who can get me 3 yards when I need it, not lose 3 often. I think its a moot point as Jim Brown can't be touched.Over 3300 Marinos with over 300 memorabilia cards (84 of which are auto'd)
