Now, I know Rice is very old but he is a great slot receiver. He can run an easy five yard slant and turn it into a 15 or 20 yard gain. For Denver to sign a one year deal with Rice makes it seem like he's unvaluable. I do understand investing a multi year contract in a player who probably wouldn't play much longer isn't that smart due to his age. Regardless injuries hasn't been a real doubt or something to think about when you think about aquiring Rice.

He's a great player and a threat at the slot. Even if you don't throw him the ball that much the secondary and linebackers would pay attention to him slightly more than the primary reciever. Rice can clear out areas for the primary to take advantage of. This method, tricking with the defense can make it a long day for them. With a nice run and pass balance offense, Denver can be great team on the offensive side of the ball.

where Rice now lacks in mobility he makes up in skill and leadership
the man can get open as easy as the best can do so....cause he's a supreme master in his position....so u can trust him to catch the ball....but thats where the mobility issue comes in...he cant really catch much anymore....
but it'll be interesting to see how Shannahan uses him (being an offensive genius)

PEACE

PEACESo you sayn that his hands aren't as great or he's not very versatile at the receiver position to perform different tasks.

I think the nigga tarnished his image as the greatest at the postion. If he wants to pass of his knowledge then become a fuckin coach..shit he older then alot of them anyway. He has to know his time is up, from Super Bowl MVP, certain first time Hall of Famer to 3rd down reciever.

Nothing is wrong with God Rice. The man loves the game and still wants to play. If you were in his shoes u would do the same. Numbers do not matter when u hold EVER important recond at your position. The man loves the game and his still able to play.


Shannahan (being an offensive genius)------- ummmmm..........BULLSHIT

cosign liquid shannoan just lucky he coached John Elway. And he had Alex Gibbs as his O-line coach for ever. Tha real mastermind behind the Broncos running system that churns out 1500 yard backs.

I understand the outlook on Rice now but I have one more question about the NFL.

Who has the best receiving crew?

I'm with the Cardinals and of course my hometown Lions.

Rice is the man. He loves the game so much he cant leave. As far as the best WR crew in the NFL its the mothafuckin:

New

Orleans

Saints

Yea Joe Horn is one of my favorite recievers but I don't know the Saints that well.

I'll take the Raiders crew over saints any day. All 6"2 or taller and all run like a ferrari. Moss,Porter, Curry No unit comes as close to as having as much pure talent.

I dont think there's anything wrong with Jesus In cleats still playing football. I think he's earned the right to play until he doesn't want to and if he's fine with being a 3rd option than so am I.

I think he gonna end up being a 4th option if he don't get cut. I'd rather develop my youngster Darius Watts by giving him some PT at the slot than have Rice at slot. Who probably won't be around next year training camp time.

I disagree with throwing Rice on the bench. I'd rather have my veteren give the youngster education at the position. Like in Green Bay, Farve is gon to give Aaron Carter a great lesson at that position for his future career.

Its Aaron Rogers lol. A youngster needs PT and reps way more than tips from Rice which they still can get wit Rice on the bench lol.

Rice already said that this will be his last season.

Me myself I feel that Rice is still a threat. I've already stated this but for example if Rice is placed at slot. That outside LB, CB or Safety are going to pay attention to Rice because of his talents that everyone knows. Pushing his route allows that outside reciever to get a single coverage or a more easier catch. Even though he's old and this is his last season, Jerry Rice is still a quality player.

My man Rice needs his PT, a youngster has all his career. If I was in the NFL and had to play man down on the depth chart for Rice I would. He's the greatest receiver that ever played and he's giving me a great demonstration at the position. I'm of course still getting my reps at practice and besides maybe I could get in at kick returns. Its the NFL and money and PT is the key but you can't always get that being a youngster. It will soon come though.

Shit im with stricker. Last season I thought he done well. When he went to the hawks I was kinda gutted coz I cant stand em for some mad reason. When they did actually throw the baw to him he done fuckin well for them. People look at his age n just under-rate him straight away. Fuck puttin him in the slot. Id have him number 2 n a good burner in the slot. Then it would get corner backs hinking. I know If I was a QB n I saw Rice, providin the pass wasnt a bomb Id look for him every time 1st. U know his experience alone never mind his talents are gonna give him a better chance at catching it than most, if not, he will do his best to make sure no1 else does anyhow.

Age means shit. Until last week Hopkins was the number 1 pound for pound at 40. Hoost won the K1 at 38. Hulks still wrestling at 90 hahaha. But age only becomes a factor when the mental accepts it. Until it does the human body can do shitloads more than people hink, n Jerry Rice knows that. I honestly believe he has at least 2 seasons left in him full out. So if he has a good season n aint just a slot man, does well Id go after this if I was him. He shoulda went to a wee team too for better servive. As shite as the 49ers are that woulda been perfect for both sides.

Hulk..... Wrestling isn't real..... Hopkins???? Boxing isn't great anymore the fighters aren't elite atheletes anymore. Jerry Rice isn't even guarenteed to make the team after training camp word on the street out in Denver. Age is more than a number in football. If u not a quicker u have no shot of dominated at the age of 40+ or being much more than a player/coach. How wants to give an old geezer reps when u got young diamonds in the rough to try to craft. Businees is Business no matter how great u were in the past that means shit now. This is a what have u done for me lately world.

Fighters are not elite athletes? Its been proven that fighters easily have the best balance of aerobic and anaerobic fitness, conditioning, mental strength, speed and power.

Put a sprinter in a marathon n he get beasted.
Put a marathon champ in a 100m n he get beasted.

Fighters can do well in both. Plus Jerry Rice - his old speed is still faster than a lotta receivers and corners. Corners after all play there for a reason. Diff wit safeties though.

Bottom line: Being a Offensive Coordinator in the NFL

I would want Jerry Rice in my receiver core.
