Sometimes this stuff is funny. Sometimes it's true. Sometimes it's delusional and we just ignore it. But, this falls somewhere in between.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling recently claimed he's one of the best in the history of the game, ranking himself alongside Randy Moss, Jerry Rice, Larry Fitzgerald and Julio Jones. Being confident is one thing -- being this arrogant (assuming he's not joking) is entirely different.
Why this shouldn't be taken lightly is because MVS is a gigantic disappointment. He has one of the best quarterbacks of all time throwing him the ball and in two NFL seasons (32 games), he's recorded just 64 receptions for 1,033 yards and 4 touchdowns. He has a catch rate of just 49.6%. He's let Packers fans down countless times which seems crazy to say since he's only been in the league for two years and was a fifth-round draft selection, but the talent he's flashed showed potential for him to be a reliable No. 2 behind Davante Adams.
That's been far from the case.
For crying out loud, Allen Lazard, who started only three games last year, had more catches, yards and touchdowns than MVS in 2019. And you think you're one of the best ever? Even if this is a joke, it's not funny.
Prove to Packers fans you can catch the ball and get a semblance of separation from a cornerback and then you can start maybe talking about being the best wideout on your own team.
