Jerry Rice makes social media mistake, ticks off Randy Moss

Many celebrities and athletes have their assistants or managers run their social media accounts, but not former San Francisco 49ers legend Jerry Rice. The NFL great handles his own business, especially in regards to his social media accounts though after a recent issue, that might be changing.

See – Rice was responding to a fellow Twitter user who suggested that Randy Moss was a better wide receiver than him.

Rice said the following:

Stupidity Randy Moss wake the f**k up!

Of course, to an unsuspecting person who didn’t check the Twitter thread, it appeared as if Rice was going after Moss which is what Moss himself thought as well:

And u wonder how many haters u actually have in this world. My luv an respect 4 @JerryRice wont change .my life is great! Yaw hold it down an enjoy the rest of ur nite.

Rice obviously wasn’t taking a shot at Moss (at least not directly), just suggesting that the idea he wasn’t as good as Moss was ludicrous.

Such drama.

    Jerry Rice and Randy Moss are the polar opposites in terms of WR’s. Rice was not the fastest, but I’d be damned if he wasn’t the best WR I’ve ever seen. Rice always ran routes so smoothly and he had that hard step that solid it. Moss on the other hand was the most physically gifted WR I’ve ever seen. I remember him in Marshall and he was just speed and height. In the NFL, that translated to completely changing the game to the point many NFC Central teams drafted corners like crazy to beef up their secondaries or they’d fear Moss blowing past them. Moss had it all, but it never translated to reaching his full potential, where as Rice didn’t have much but he worked hard and became the greatest. With that said, both do have slight ego problems… LOL… but I can understand it more from Rice as many wrote him off for his lack of speed and he proved everyone wrong.
