Just because you’re the GOAT doesn’t mean you’re done dominating. The KobeSystem helps Jerry Rice come to that hard conclusion.
Most basketball players and coaches will pick Michael Jordan as the GOAT basketball player but few would argue that Kobe hasn’t been the best of the past decade and fewer will argue that Jerry Rice isn’t the best wide receiver to every play football. Before we get into his accomplishments let’s check out his dominance on the field.
Jerry Rice owns virtually every significant receiving mark. Some of the more notable career records include receptions (1,549); receiving yards (22,895 yards); most 1,000-yard receiving seasons (14); total touchdowns (208); and combined net yards (23,546).
Rice has a hold on multiple NFL playoff and Super Bowl records. He played in eight conference championships and four Super Bowls. He earned three Super Bowl rings with the 49ers and was named the Most Valuable Player of San Francisco’s Super Bowl XXIII win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Rice, who was named first-team All-Pro 11 consecutive seasons and voted to 13 Pro Bowls, is also a member of the NFL’s All-Decade Teams of the 1980s and 1990s and NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team.
With this resume lets hope he can dominate retirement the way Kobe has instructed him to.
