If anyone is going to do it, it'll be CJ.
No. Not going to happen, and certainly not by a guy who's 6-5, 240. His knees will give out way before that happens.

The single-season stuff will drop over time, but not the career stats. Randy Moss in his prime, with the NFL's best passing QB throwing to him, on an offense running on crack, beat Rice's receiving TDs record by one
. Which is to say even the single-season stuff will take time.
Not to mention how the rules have been bent since Rice's time to distort the game. Rice started to see the beginnings of these rule changes before retiring, but he didn't he didn't really benefit from them. Ranking cross-generationally is tricky, probably impossible.
