per ESPN News!
Stick a fork in him!
It's about damn time
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.
What happened...his walker break down?
Talk about hanging on to the Glory Days until you pull your fingernails out.
That means he'll be in the same Hall of Fame class as Emmitt.
What a bummer......
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:
Geez get the story right, He is THINKING about retiring.
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?
Good for him
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.
OK they just put that link up, it wasn't there when I first went to ESPN.
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.
