    Thank goodness.
    The guy was greatness exemplified.

    BUT I was sick of him. All this chatter of meeting with Shanny and his role. Please. The dude is older than dirt. I think he was one of the disciples.

    That means he'll be in the same Hall of Fame class as Emmitt.

    Uggh.

    He was the best.

    I can applaud him now that he's gone.

    Oh man I did not even think of that!

    That sucks, there is no doubt ESPN and the NFL will steal Emmitt's spot light with Jerry Rice 24/7. :bang2:

    I don't recall my having ever once applaud him when he played so why start now. I'm not denying his talent; I just didn't like him.

    Well since the exact words on ESPN news in the bottom right hand corner are -

    Jerry Rice to Retire - 1:30 Press Conference, I am pretty sure I got it right.

    I have not been in school for about 15 years though. Can anyone else confirm that this means Jerry is retiring?

    I read an article yesterday or two days ago (?) saying he'd make his decision by monday. Since today is Monday I assume he did make his decision, and the decision being that he did, in fact, decide to retire.

    I just appreciate greatness, just like Elway, LT, Barry Sanders, I can go on for years.

    an unbelievable end to the greatest WR and for that matter the best NFL player of all time, glad that i got to see him play throughout his whole career.

    Greatest WR I ever saw play - probably best overall player, too.

    Normally I do too. I don't know what there was about Jerry Rice that just rubbed me the wrong way. there was just something about him that got on my nerves. *shurg*

    But I do admit to his talent, skill and dedication...it was undeniable.
