Moss the best downfield WR ever?

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Is Randy Moss the best downfield receiver in the history of the NFL? Tom Brady thinks so.

"There’s only one Randy Moss that would ever play this game. He’s probably the greatest downfield receiver in the history of the NFL," Brady said Wednesday.

"I mean, those catches that he makes when he runs 65 yards down the field and you throw it and he just runs and catches it. That’s impossible to do. I’ve asked him, ‘How do you do that?’ And he says, ‘I don’t know, man. I’ve been doing it for a long time.’ So, he has some special skills that nobody is really gifted with."

Brady's remarks come on the heels of Moss telling CBSSports.com that he didn't feel wanted by the Patriots as he enters the last year of his contract. So maybe it was a case of Brady laying it on a bit thick.

Still, if not Moss, then who?
