MC, that statement is laughable. Moss is 27, and would have to play until he's 40 before he even considers breaking those records. That means not getting injured, and at some point going from a speed WR into a possession receiver. He's 1000 catches behind Rice, which means 10 more 100 catch years. In his six year career, Moss has had 100 catches twice, so he has a lot of work to do if he wants to get past 1500 catches.
After six full seasons, Moss has 8400 career receiving yards, compared to Rice's 22,500 lifetime. Once again, he'll need about 10 more seasons of about 1400 yards receiving to get this record. His best shot is probably receiving TD's, but he's still 115 behind in that category, so he obviously has a ton of work to do. Saying that Rice is pissed because he thinks Moss will break his record is the equivalent to saying that Bonds is pissed after a homerun-less streak because he knows that Pujols is on pace to break his records. Can he do it? Of course, but he'll need to play until 40 and continue to put up the same type of numbers that he's putting up right now, which is a longshot. Moss' next 6 years will probably not equal his first 6, while in years 7-12, Rice's receptions increased along with his TDs and yards staying consistent. There is a reason Rice is unquestionably the greatest WR in the history of the NFL, and Moss will find that out in about 5 years, when he's still way behind on Rice's numbers even while in his thirties.
