Entries in Jerry Rice (9)


There Hasn't Been A Player Like Ray Lewis In A Long Time

If you are a real football fan, you appreciate greatness. Greatness doesn’t just come around all the time. Sometimes we forsake greatness until it has gotten old and slow then we realize how great a player was.

In my generation greatness has been amongst us in several instances. I was able to watch the greatest wide receiver to ever play the game as Jerry Rice rewrote the record books. I was also able to catch the end of the career of Walter Earl Payton as he excelled into the realm of great backs in the league. I witnessed the decade of Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders that will not be duplicated by any two backs of different styles for that period of time. I even witnessed the greatness that is Lawrence Taylor, who in my estimation is the greatest outside linebacker to ever play the game.

Sometimes as fans we take greatness for granted. Enter Ray Lewis. Following the career of Ray Lewis has been remarkable for me. When he was at the University of Miami, #theU, he was a wrecking machine. However no one knew he would be that great on the next level. When he was drafted by the Ravens, I happened to be in Baltimore doing an internship and when I saw him on the practice field, I was like he is going to get killed at that size on this level.

Like It Or Not: Terrell Owens Is Still A Force In This League

Like him or not, Terrell Owens made his point. He's nowhere near finished.

The 36-year-old receiver had trouble finding a team that would take him this off-season, something he took as a snub. The Cincinnati Bengals finally signed him, and now he's their leading receiver.

One of the league's best, too.

Owens has had a couple of very explosive games this year. Earlier this year Owens had 10 catches for 222 yards against Cleveland. In that game he also moved into second place on the career list for yards receiving, trailing only former 49ers teammate Jerry Rice. He became the oldest receiver in NFL history to have a 200-yard game, and the only one this season.

Owens performance has served as an eye-opener for a lot of people out there that have said a lot of negative things about him. I have heard everything about him from the fact that he has lost a step, or he just can't play.

No Doubt About It: Terrell Owens Is A Hall of Famer

Entering his 15th season, Terrell Owens has arguably been the NFL's most productive receiver over the course of his career and is likely to conclude it as a Hall of Famer. Ultimately Owens is going to be a test of voting that no other player has ever really had to endure. Owens is not a media darling and even though his numbers will justify being a first ballot Hall of Famer, the fact that he is not adored by many of the football writers who will be voting will probably cause a delay in his admission to the Hall.

But whether or not he finishes in Canton, Owens remains grateful for beginning his professional journey alongside Jerry Rice, who received his golden jacket at the beginning of the season.

Owens honed his craft while apprenticing under Rice with the San Francisco 49ers from 1996-2000. As of October 3, 2010 Owens ranks second to Rice in career receiving yards (Owens is currently second all-time with 15,325) and touchdowns (third, 145) by season's end, though New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss (14,604/151) has been jockeying with T.O. on the all-time charts for years.

Two Talents, One Ballot, One Hall: Emmitt and Jerry Take Canton By Storm

In August, Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice will be enshrined in Canton, Ohio, joining their fellow immortals cast in bronze for perpetuity in the hallowed corridors of the illustrious Pro Football Hall of Fame. Both players are arguably the best ever at their positions and both “Roads to Canton” were filled with championships and success.

After a highly successful professional career, it was no surprise that Emmitt Smith was a first-ballot selection for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in February. Smith, whose football success began long before his days with the Dallas Cowboys, will be inducted on August 7, 2010, taking with him the NFL's all-time rushing yardage crown.
