Steve Smith or Randy Moss?

68 posts in this topic

SOME guys can cover Moss one on one to slow him down.

Steve Smith -- no offense to Deion Sanders but in his prime could cover Steve Smith

I sure wish we had drafted Steve to go along with Patten, Branch and Givens a few years ago! lol He is Jordan, and Ali right now.. he is the best!

They are simply not comparable. In fact I don't think you can really compare any WR to Smitty.

Smitty. He's a bulldog with rocket skates. Moss is a gazelle, but I question his toughness, specifically his ability to go across the middle and make the tough catch, about to get blown up

Moss's attitude has changed, and it was a blessing for him to get to NE because he needed that kind of support and background around him, good clean God-fearing guys but Moss is still Great. But Steve Smith to me is Jerry Rice, and let me tell you why. Allthough like I said both Moss and Steve Smith are canton-caliber.... You just never see that quit in Steve Smith, never. You've seen it on occassion from Henry Ellard, James Lofton, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and even Cris Carter at times.. But Steve Smith just has that Rice-like quality in him of burning fire kind of like what Barry had that you seen in Walter Payton.

Very good point here... Smith has no quit in him. He busts it on every single play and if he doesn't have the ball, he blocks... watch that DeAngelo long run yesterday... Smith was trailing the play, but running all out trying to get a block in.

PLUS, unlike a lot of the other elite receivers, he doesn't run his mouth when he doesn't get the ball. He's a team guy.

Moss, only because of his height. Yeah, I know, Smitty can jump, but still. He beats Smitty by like 1%. Then again, put Moss on a bad team and he doesn't care. Put Smith on one, and like you said, he has no quit in him.

I'm sorry, I think Fitzgerald is excellent too, but he is not better than Steve Smith. Steve Smith can do everything he can do and then some. Smith has better speed, can break more tackles, can take over a game better than any other in Football. Like I said, Smith is a mirror image of Jerry Rice.

ok... here are my lists... there are three of them...

Hall of Fame caliber as a wide receiver right now in their career:

1. Moss

2. Smith

3. Johnson

4. Harrison

5. Fitzgerald

Best pure talent at the wide receiver this season:

1. Smith

2. Johnson

3. Moss

4. Fitsgerald

5. Harrison

What order I think they will be in in the Hall of Fame at the end of their careers, just compared to each other, not the other receivers in there right now.

1. Johnson

2. Smith

3. Moss

4. Harrison

5. FitzGerald, if he even gets in, which I doubt he will, tbh.

Calvin Johnson is an incredible talent, he has abilities unlike anything I have ever seen, and he will not be on the Lions forever, I promise you tha

moss has a little bit better hands, but he doesnt have the YAC ability that smith has. overall, smith is a better weapon. moss only seems to be a deep threat, while smitty can run the ball, reverses, decoy whatever you want from him.
