Fitzgerald, who became the youngest receiver to have 1,000 career catches in NFL history on Dec. 6, is on pace to finish this season with 118 catches, which would give him 1,027 career catches.
At the moment, Fitz is 544 receptions behind all-time leader Jerry Rice and believes the gap is too far to make up before the end of his career.
"I don't think the record's attainable," Fitzgerald, who has 1,005 catches as he nears the end of his 12th NFL season, told TheMMQB.com.
Fitzgerald pointed out that Rice was blessed to be able to catch passes from two of the best quarterbacks in NFL history (Joe Montana and Steve Young) for most of his career (with the San Francisco 49ers) and "then, those guys are gone and he goes from a Pro Bowl quarterback [Jeff Garcia, with the 49ers] to another MVP [Rich Gannon, with the Oakland Raiders]."

Do you think anyone in the NFL has the talent and situation to catch Jerry Rice?
