    Another Moss record broken

    While Randy Moss still owns a couple of "first six year in the league" records in the NFL, he officially owns no "first seven years" anymore as Torry Holt has passed his total yards for seven years with four and a half games left in his seventh. This leads me to a few questions ...
    1) Is Torry Holt not highly underrated? This guy has put up monster numbers for seven years now, he does not get the TDs as Moss, Owens or Harrison, but is just as consistent and better in almost every other category.
    2) Can Holt, Moss, Boldin or anyone logical make a run at Rice's numbers? Look at them before you answer, those numbers are off the charts and I personally don't know that anyone gets close.
    3) and the best ... Is Moss gonna be the Moss we all knew and loved again at any point? Obviously he will have great games and great catches here and there, but will we see the week in and week out domination we were accustomed to again?

    Have some fun ...

    He's underrated because he's not big-play flashy like Moss or loud-mouth flashy like T-Ho. The media doesn't focus on him a lot because he doesn't call a lot of attention to himself. Keep in mind, Harrison didn't start getting the pub he deserved until Manning started putting up huge numbers. He's not quite Harrison caliber though....so he shouldn't be compared to him.

    Props to another one of my guys out of NC State. Go Torry! He supports the university more than anyone I know of and i think he always will.

    I don't know, his numbers are much better than Harrison's through this point in Harrison's career.
    I really don't know that there is a better receiver in the league right now ... definitely not one as consistent ...
    I think he is fun to watch play and is extremely confident on every play. I dont know that I would take him over a few of those other guys, but he should definitely be considered.

    I think that Holt having 3 or 4 differnet QB's now is a part of the underated thing. He isn't part of a duo. He doesn't call attention to himself.

    Oh well!!

    Moss being hurt this year and last year has set him back a bit. I hope he recovers from this lapse.

    Honestly, if Moss doesn't start to run routes like Holt Harrison and Rice, he might get left behind as he gets older. Just a thought! Moss may be taking his god-given talents for granted.

    Holt isn't part of a duo? What about Isaac Bruce?

    I have heard people say that Holt is "The Best" route runner in the NFL, been hearing it for the last 4 years.

    Look at the paragraph as a whole, QB/WR.
