Thumbnail image for mosstom.jpg

In this morning’s paper, Shalise wrote on Randy Moss and his place in history, after Moss registered his 150th touchdown catch last Sunday, becoming just the second player ever to reach the milestone.

“The only one I’ve seen better than Randy in the last 30 years is Jerry
Rice,” Moss’ former Viking teammate Cris Carter told Shalise. And that’s
evident in the numbers. Where does Moss rank historically? Let’s take a
look …
