Define deep threat?

Jerry Rice was money after the catch, he was never somebody who was a speed guy, as his 40 was timed at 4.6. Randy Moss was a deep threat on account of his speed and ability to catch the ball over his shoulder. Rice used his intelligence and ability to read defenses instead of pure speed. I didnt see Jerry Rice just blow away defensive backs with his average speed, but again, I actually seen Jerry Rice play.

I wont even mention how Yards per catch has no bearing on being a deep threat and is just a statsitic that has no way, shape or form a barometer on annointing somebody a "deep threat" when it is more alligned with yards after a catch, something Rice was possibly the best ever at attaining.YPC is an irrelevant stat.

So again, tell me how Jerry Rice was a deep threat when Rice himself stated he never considered himself a deep threat and didnt want to be pigeon holed such a claim and instead wanted to be known as the best all round wide out in the game.

I mean, if Jerry Rices says so......
