Steve Smith or Randy Moss?

68 posts in this topic

Smith's toughness goes a long way. When any other WR gets blasted after a catch I always think "we'll he's going to think twice about doing that again", when Smitty gets blasted I think "well there you've gone and pissed him off". You can hit him as hard as you want, he won't tone it down one bit.

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.

you have to remember steve is in a run first offense that helps him a lot.but boldin and fitzgerald are in a pass heavy offense and still make plays.

If Smitty played in a pass first offense, he'd be leading the league in receptions, yards, and TD's every year.

I don't understand your line of thinking and maybe I'm misreading what you're trying to say, but Smitty gets double coverage already, he's not going to get any more/less double coverage if he were in a pass first offense. He'd just get more opportunities to burn defenders.

agreed... I can't remember who it was but it was a few years ago when he made a catch and got hit on like the 5 yard line and I thought he had died on the field.... but he jumped up before the defender did beating his chest and pointing to heaven.... and ever since that hit, when I see him take a lick I say oh sh*t, ya'll messed up.

Smith and it's not even close for me.

Smith - he's faster / quicker, better in traffic, never quits, blocks on all running plays, plays with more heart and controled aggression than anyone I've ever seen. Out jumps guys 6 inches taller than him for the ball and always comes down with it. Imagine Smity with PManning or Brady...he would have 2000 yards in a season!

Moss - great player, but quits on too many plays, doesn't block on runs and is a general pain in the ass. Some positives, he's lightning fast, has great hands, and is an awesome red zone target.

Smith. He is 3rd in receiving yards in only 12 games. At his pace, he would be leading had it not been for the suspension. With Brady, you probably have to say Moss.. but not this year. In fact, it should have been "Smith or Andre Johnson?" or "Smith or Boldin?"

Or Calvin Johnson. Despite all that crap in Detroit he has 1100 yards and 10 TDs

i take smith as of right now

overall i'd take moss, if he actually have someone to throw it to him, like a cullpepper of 01-03 or brady. you saw what happened to him in oakland w/o a qb to feed him the ball.

however, in the next two years, calvin johnson and andre johnson will take over this discussion. man what is we had either one of them on the other side of smitty? i'd poo my pants if i was a d coordinator

This is the craziest thing I've read in awhile, you should write for ESPN. They love this kinda poo.

The thing with Moss is that he can be shutdown. Not just by a great D gameplan but by himself. He will mentally take himself out of games at times.

I've never seen SS do that, not even when Ricky Rocket (David Carr), Methusala, or Wienke were his QB's.

Steve is a talent that is so underappreciatted. Maybe in a few years people will look back and think about just how dominating he was during this era.

More 100 yd games since '03 than any other WR. This is with QB's such as David Carr, Testaverde, and Wienke. Most of his carreer he has not had a viable second WR, for two of those years he didn't have a dominate run game, for one year he didn't even play because of injury. That is impressive enough in itself.

Take into account that he is only a generous 5'9" and its even more impressive.

Smitty, anybody who chooses Moss is blind or scared of being labeled a homer.
