When you start throwing around words like the Best in NFL History, Twitter is going to get upset. NFL Analyst Anthony Treash made a bold proclamation, calling Kansas City Chiefs speedy receiver Tyreek Hill the best deep threat in NFL history. Twitter quickly reminded him there were some other players that were pretty good too.
Trending from Side Action
Namely Randy Moss.

Randy Moss the best deep threat and ain’t close. He lit the cowboys for like 3 catches 160 yards and 3 touchdowns https://t.co/g5lYJbiiar

We gotta stop being so prisoner of the moment.
Randy Moss was probably the most freakishly athletic wide receiver there ever was combining size, speed and his jumping ability.
As great as Hill is, he can’t do the same things that made Moss who he is. https://t.co/Ru0voFxE7B

Randy Moss was half a foot taller, just as fast and won at the high point of the catch against everyone except @peanuttillman cmon with this disrespect. Recency bias is obnoxious. https://t.co/6kPs6Zefr0

Whenever somebody questions the greatness of Randy Moss I just show them that stat line from that famous Thanksgiving Day game. It was a treat to get to see him play.

Calvin Johnson ran a 4.35 40 at 6’5 and was superior in every aspect WTH is this.
Megatron, Randy Moss, Andre Johnson, DJax yea that’s a big no for now.

So that’s an overwhelming response.
You really never know if someone’s hot take is really their opinion, or were they just trying to stir things up. Hill is fast and explosive, but he’s nowhere near the deep threat that Randy Moss was.
You can’t compete with Randy at his height. Hill is fantastic, but he’s a shorty.
