Jerry Rice is widely regarded as the best wide receiver ever to play the game, but he says he wasnâ€™t the most talented. Randy Moss, Rice says, was more talented.
And Rice doesnâ€™t mean that as a compliment.
On ESPN Radio this morning, Rice said he always had a hard time watching Moss because Rice hated to see a player so naturally gifted not making the most of those gifts.
â€œIt was hard for me to swallow because I was not as talented and I had to work harder,â€ Rice said. â€œTo see a guy with that much talent not give it 100 percent, it was almost like a little slap in the face. But Randy was Randy.â€
Rice said he wonders what kind of player Moss would have been with a better work ethic.
â€œHe could have been one of the greatest if he had worked just a little bit harder,â€ Rice said. â€œI donâ€™t think he wanted to give it 100 percent. You never knew what you were going to get with Randy. Sometimes youâ€™d get the unbelievable guy, the amazing guy. Other times youâ€™d get the guy that took a couple plays off.â€
In Riceâ€™s view, the unbelievable, amazing guy didnâ€™t show up to work often enough.
