Ja’Marr Chase, the star wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, recently gave his “Mount Rushmore” of wide receivers in NFL history.
His list includes Jerry Rice, who is considered the greatest to ever play the position, Calvin Johnson, Cooper Kupp of the Los Angeles Rams, and Antonio Brown.
However, his list seemed to snub Terrell Owens and Randy Moss, both of whom are on most people’s top-four wide receivers of all-time list.

Chase insisted it was no knock on Owens or Moss, but fans seemed to believe otherwise.
LOL. He is entitled to his opinion though, but AB over Moss or Owen's is funny.

This fan thinks Andre Johnson, a seven-time Pro Bowler while with the Houston Texans, should’ve been on the list.
Andre Johnson better

Meanwhile, this fan is happy Chase put Kupp on his list.
Cooper Kupp getting the recognition he deserves

Kupp had an injury-riddled 2022 season, but in 2021 he had 1,947 receiving yards and 16 receiving touchdowns, both of which were league-highs while winning the MVP of the Super Bowl.
But it was the only season in which he went over 1,200 receiving yards, and he simply hasn’t done enough in six NFL seasons to be a top-four receiver of all time.
Rice had an incredible resume that includes 13 Pro Bowl selections, 10 All-Pro First-Team nods, three Super Bowl championships, and six seasons in which he led the league in receiving yards.
Johnson led the NFL in receiving yards twice, and in 2012, he led everyone with 1,964 receiving yards, which is still a single-season record.
Brown’s resume is checkered due to some incidents, but he also led the NFL in receiving yards twice and went over the 1,500-yard mark three times.NEXT: Colin Cowherd Compares Anthony Richardson To 3 Outstanding QBs
