Jerry Rice is probably the best wide receiver to ever play the game, depending on who you talk too, but I feel he is a legend. Did you know that Rice accounted for 13.4 miles of total offense in his career. That’s 23,450 yards and 70,350 feet and 844,200 inches. That’s almost like running a half marathon.
He is the all-time leader in most major statistical categories for wide receivers and the all-time NFL leader in receptions, touchdown receptions, and yards. Rice was selected to the Pro Bowl 13 times (1986–1996, 1998, 2002) and named All-Pro 12 times in his 20 NFL seasons. He won three Super Bowl rings playing for the San Francisco 49ers and an AFC Championship with the Oakland Raiders.
I don’t know about you, but when people compare guys in the NFL to Jerry Rice it is not comparable. I am not sure there will be another player that was as talented as Rice.
