But looking at the numbers exclusively and without bias, it's not even a question:
Jerry Rice 1549 career receptions to Moss's 982
22,895 receiving yards compared to 15,292
13 Pro Bowls compared to 6
and of course 3 Super Bowl rings compared to 0
It's the same with comparing Federer to Sampras. Federer basically has everything above Sampras. Only a few die-hard Sampras fans(and Moss fans) are in denial.
Roger is number one - 17 slams; 302 weeks #1, 6 WTF; 5 years end #1; 24 slam finals;4 slam finals back-to-back year; Player of the decade
