Randy Moss wasn't shy when speaking with the media on Tuesday about where he thinks he ranks among all-time great wide receivers.

Speaking at the Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday morning, the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver said flat-out that he is the best wide receiver in NFL history. For a career, the seven time Pro Bowl wide receiver has recorded 982 receptions for a total of 15,292 receiving yards and 156 receiving touchdowns:

"I do think I’m the greatest receiver ever to play this game."

At the time of his remarks, ESPN's Adam Schefter happened to be with a former NFL player who also knows a thing or two about being a wide receiever in the NFL.

Schefter tweeted that Jerry Rice, who spent 15 years playing for the Niners and won three Super Bowls during his career, said in response to Moss' comments that the numbers should decide who is the best wide receiver of all time. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/296300233942507520
