Obviously Moss is better than Owens. Throughout his career Moss has done what Owens could not. Which is run faster, jump higher, and has the ability to catch virtually any ball thrown his way.
Granted Owens is more physical than Moss but who cares?!! i would take Moss's attributes over Owens any day! look at the numbers they don't lie.

Ya Moss has the better catching skill, but TO is the complete player. I remember watching him make a block (wiping out a linebacker)after running all the way to the other side of the field to help make a short pass play for a touchdown. You just dont see this from many if any wide recievers. They both have the big ego, it's just a matter of which one controlls it better, and Moss is probably better at that too.

I would take Owens. I think he is the better overall receiver, and i think his problems come from is competitive edge

Randy Moss is number one. Former Dupont High and Marshall standout. He 's one of a kind . I am so thrilled he's also from my great state of WV. Football will never be the same for me when he's not playing anymore. Randy Moss is the real 81 !!!!!!

Both great with different attributes. I think Moss is faster and has better hands and Owens is tougher.

TO is over rated. Sure he has a great top speed and is exptremely strong, but he has no hands. He routinely drops easy balls and that's job #1 for a WR. He's been very productive, but that's as much about having pro-bowl QB's at every stop. His speed, strength and size are the reason for the majority of his stats. That's not to say he's not productive because that would be ludicrous, but he's not even the second best receiver in the NFL.

Niether Randy Moss nor Terrel Owens have a single Super Bowl ring between them. However, Plaxico Burress does. He'll probably get another one in February.

I'd have to disagree with you here. Moss will give you more of a homerun threat but thats pretty much all he gives you. T.O will give you singles, doubles, triples, and homeruns. And Randy Moss can be a problem in the locker room. Remember Okland? He was worse than Owens ever was when he was with the Raiders. And the final topping on the cake. Moss wiont give you 100% unless he feels like it. T.O does alot more than Moss on any given Sunday (or Thursday for that matter). I have never heard Randy Moss say 'it's okay if I don't get the ball as long as we win'...but Owens, eventhough he is adimit about getting the ball, says that just about weekly.

Moss...by far. The guy's got magnets built into his hands or something. I've watched him since he was at Marshall, and I've seen him do things nothing short of amazing.

Owens, on the other hand, seems to rely on speed and his ability to read routes (great attributes in their own right...don't get me wrong), rather than rely on the raw skills at every turn, but especially his ability to catch anything in his wide zone, that make Randy Moss so great.

TO all the way to much of a beast when he man handles the corners. You take away their speed TO is still stronger

did u not see TO's interview with Deion Sanders? He sed winning is more important than his stats but then added "we'll only win when 81 gets the ball" Moss however has been used as a decoy in most of the games this year and hasnt complained. Don't get me wrong T.O. is a great wr..but moss' talent only comes around once in a lifetime..he could give it 80% and he's still better than t.o. not only the numbers but the ability to make the impossible plays..ask ne 1 of his former teamates n they'll say he's a great teammate..he doesn't imply his qb is gay or criticize him for getting sick in the sb..not to mention t.o. LOVES attention he's like a woman but Moss avoids talking to the media unless he's forced to. Difference b/w the moss is more real T.O. himself once sed of moss "he's the best in the game" look it up

thats why randy moss is the best reciever in the game. and as much as i hate t.o., i have to say that he is one of the top 5 recievers in the league. i hate him because of his crybaby ways.

Randy Moss is the best reciever in the game, not only did TO say it, Jerry Rice said it as well...
Moss's natural ability is far more superior than TO, while TO has worked harder, practiced more, natural talent is something you are born with, TO was not...
TO is the most dangerous player (except maybe Adrian Peterson) in the NFL once he has the ball in his hands, but there's the problem, getting it into his stone hands, the guy can't catch a cold...
Randy does more for an offense when he is on the field than just catch passes, every defense coordinator in the league will tell you that...

We miss you in MN SUPER FREAK!

Neither palxico is better!!

I'm leaning towards Clyde Duncan as the all time best WR. I'm not sure about Randy Moss and Terrell Owens. They both seem to be quite popular and talented, but I don't consider either one of them close to the best.
