Mr. “I play when I want to” might be the most gifted wideout to ever lace them up. He had the size, 6-foot-4, the ridiculous speed, ran a 4.25 40 time in college, had unrivaled leaping ability, and a pair of some of the greatest hands known to man that almost made you think he was a "Create a Player" on Madden. You know you're good when the term “Mossed” is recreated as a verb meaning, “to make a ridiculous catch jumping over your opponent like Randy Moss” and is used by football fans everywhere. Not to mention arguably the league's greatest deep threat gave us the epic “Straight Cash Homey” and “Lambeau Moon” clips, to go with the record-breaking 23 receiving touchdown '07 season. A second decade of Complex without him wouldn't have been the same; thankfully the 49ers saved us from it.
