Jerry’s gone

Posted: February 25, 2005 in Uncategorized

The ‘hawks announced today that they’ve released Rice. So, another prediction gone wrong, I was really hoping we’d have him for one more season. I really enjoyed watching him play for Seattle. I went to the MNF game with GeorgeP, and boy, did Rice put on a show: 8 receptions for 145 yards and a touchdown. It was amazing how the entire stadium was chanting "Jerry! Jerry!" on numerous occassions that night. I can’t remember the last time a player on a ‘hawks team was shown that much love. Too bad we crumbled late in the 4th and lost, but what an exciting game nonetheless.

I suppose he’ll sign with the 49ers in front of some cameras, pick up a glass of champagne, and announce his retirement. He probably won’t give up without a fight, tho’…he’ll likely ask to play one last season to make it "look legit", but the 49ers are in a major rebuilding phase right now.
