Default Shannon Sharpe blasts Randy Moss

“Moss is out of his mind,” Sharpe said. “I mean you can debate every position in the NFL as to who’s better, but the only position you can’t debate is wide receiver. It’s Jerry Rice. It’s not even close.

“And think of this: Jerry put up his numbers when it was a run-first league. If Jerry played now, and played his entire career with these new defensive rules, Jerry would have had 250 touchdowns, 30,000 yards and 2000 receptions.”
the new defensive rules Sharpe was saying is that the defender can't touch the receiver beyond 5 yards from scimmage(known as Ty Law Rule). This favors the receiver because there's less physical contact thus helps the receiver getting free from the defender.
