If given the option, who would you chose between Jerry Rice and Randy Moss? Arguably the two greatest receivers in NFL history, one proved to be the epitome of excellence while the other had a flair for the spectacular. While Moss had impressive career totals of 156 TDs and over 15,000 yards, he fell far short of Rice’s career totals of 197 TDs and almost 23,000 yards. Still, I’d like to ask Tom Brady which receiver he’d prefer to have in his huddle. For that matter, I’d like to ask Joe Montana or Steve Young the same question. I imagine the former 49ers would stick together. However, I’m sure both QBs would have relished throwing to Moss as well.
It’s good to see that Heath Shuler is getting paid to do what he’s being doing for years – acting. Representing North Carolina’s 11th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2007-13, Shuler perfected the ability to act as if he cared about serving his constituents. He supposedly was an NFL quarterback in the mid-1990s, but that was all an act too. Prior to the 1994 Draft, Shuler generally was considered the best prospect at quarterback. He was taken by Washington with the 3rd overall pick that year but failed to live up to expectations. During his NFL career, the former Tennessee Volunteer threw more than twice as many interceptions (33) as touchdowns (15) and compiled an underwhelming 8-14 record as a starter. After four unsuccessful seasons, his act got old so his football days ended. Given his success in college and failure in the NFL, it’s no surprise that Shuler would reminisce about his glory days in a commercial for Dish Network. Come to think of it, that’s the least acting he’s had to do in the last 20 years.
