  • Rice a Sqwak

    Chris Mortenson just reported that Rice is close to being traded to the shesqwaks for a conditional draft pick.

    Sounds like the sqwaks are in need of a receiver that can hold on to the ball.

    It's true, the Seahawks are in need of a receiver who can hold onto the ball, especially with Bobby Engram hurt and Koren Robinson likely to be suspended for smoking weed. I hope he'll do OK out of the slot.

      Jerry needs to face the music and retire already.

        The Raiders only got a 7th round pick! They traded a future hall of famer for someone that will likely get cut.

        Jerry does need to retire. Getting traded for a 7th rounder would be kind of embarassing.

        The Raiders are being run into the ground. Tim Brown, Jerry Rice gone. Al Davis has been hanging out with Ricky Williams and Koren Robinson too long.

          But... what about the key question...

          How are the massage parlors in Seattle?

            Put yourself in a GM's shoes and ask yourself what you would give up to get Jerry Rice, a 42-year-old receiver who may retire after this season. You're getting him for, what, ten or eleven games? Do you really want to spend a lot here? There's no guarantee that he'll play another season, or that he's even still a good weapon. Maybe there was a reason he wasn't getting used as much in Oakland.

              There's no maybe about it. I have a buddy at work who's a huge Raiders' fan. We were discussing the trade today and he told me that the fact is that every other receiver that the Raiders have is a more viable weapon at this point than Rice.

                  PFT: Hawks cooking up some Rice?

                  HAWKS COOKING UP SOME RICE?

                  As receiver Jerry Rice continues to look for a pathway out of the Bay Area after more than 19 seasons with the ***** and the Raiders, we're hearing that talks have been occurring between the Seahawks and the Raiders, possibly regarding a trade for the man who holds every significant career receiving record.

                  Though we don't do what specifically was discussed, we do know that there have been communications, and we can think of no reason why the Raiders and the Seahawks would be talking about anything other than a trade for Rice, especially since the trade deadline is only five days away.

                  Reportedly, Rice was scheduled to meet with Raiders owner Al Davis on Wednesday night (daylight, after all, kills vampires) regarding the future Hall of Famer's discontent with his role in the Oakland offense. On Sunday, Rice was held without a reception for the second time this season.

                  When Rice left the ***** as a free agent, the Seahawks was one of the teams in the mix for his services, since coach Mike Holmgren is well acquainted with Rice given their days together in San Fran, when Holmgren was the offensive coordinator. With a receiving corps in Seattle that's having trouble holding onto the football, perhaps Holmgren thinks a guy like Rice will help Koren Robinson finally mature into the player that he can be.

                  But Holmgren also will be required to get Rice on the field, and the ball in his hands. If anyone can find a way to make that happen, it's Holmgren, who arguably knows Rice better than any other coach presently working in the NFL.

                  Rice vents, deals with streak's end

                  OAKLAND

                  SUNDAY'S GAME against the Buffalo Bills had been over for nearly 30 minutes, and Jerry Rice's white-hot anger had subsided.

                  Rice laughed about how he had slammed his helmet to the ground, one-hopping the Raiders' bench late in the fourth quarter of their 13-10 victory.

                  He joked about how he had kicked a plastic yard-line marker, accidentally bouncing it off a cop's leg on the sidelines.

                  Nearly a half hour had passed since Rice's NFL record streak of 274 games with at least one catch had ended.

                  His anger had subsided, but his pride was still clearly hurting.

                  Rice hadn't been blanked since Dec. 1, 1985, against the Washington Redskins during his rookie season with the *****.

                  Eight days later that year in a Monday night game against the Rams, Rice started a catch streak that lasted over 18 seasons and through four U.S. presidents, from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush.

                  Rice went on to became arguably the NFL's greatest receiver, smashing records left and right. Now, at 41, he's an afterthought. That reality, more than the streak's death, is what hurt most.

                  "It's something that's hard to deal with because you pride yourself on catching the football," Rice said. "Even without the streak, you pride yourself on catching the football during the game. And it's been a long time. I can't recall. It's been a long time.

                  "I never thought it would come to an end like this, but you know, it's OK. It's all right. It happens. Life goes on. I'll just start another one."

                  It's been a long time since Rice was all but ignored in a football game. But that's what happened Sunday. Quarterback Rich Gannon threw Rice's way one time. That second-quarter sideline pass sailed well over Rice's head.

                  Rice spent most of the game running deep clear-out patterns, opening up space for other receivers.

                  "Well, I'm in great shape," Rice said, laughing. "It reminds me of the movie, what's his name, run Forrest run? Forrest Gump? Well, run Forrest run. I was running. I was running hard, too."

                  When Rice was in his prime, his coaches and quarterback basically made sure he kept his streak alive. They were aware when Rice's streak was in jeopardy.

                  And now?

                  Well, new Raiders coach Norv Turner said he didn't realize Rice's streak was on life support until offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye told him with only 2:20 remaining. By then, it was too late. The Raiders got the ball back with 1:17 left and ran out the clock.

                  "There's no way in that situation you're going to throw a pass," Turner said.

                  "I would like to (have seen) Jerry continue his streak. It disappoints me that he didn't."

                  Gannon said he...

                  Rice can't hack real offense, runs home crying to Mommy Holmgren
                  by Guest
                  October 23, 2004 (NHS) -- Jerry Rice was traded to Seattle for, well, nothing (his true market value) after a typical episode of Jerry being Jerry (being an egomaniacal a-hole). But the most overrated individual in sports history got his way in the end -- which is all that matters, right? -- notwithstanding the stench of how it went down.

                  End of West Coast offense, end of Jerry
                  It started with Rice's meltdown in Oakland. After Al Davis toyed with the cheesy West Coast offense in Oakland for the last couple years -- perhaps just to show how easy it is to dink your way to the Super Bowl -- this year he brought in Norv Turner and real offense back to the Silver & Black.

                  And Jerry couldn't hack it.

                  It's no coincidence that it took just two games in a legitimate offensive scheme to spell the end of one of the most perverted pieces of meaningless NFL trivia -- Rice's little "consecutive games with a catch" streak.

                  There are complete idiots that use this among "proof" that Rice is, laughably, "the greatest player ever", but perhaps now they'll connect the dots that the entire "streak" was based on nothing more than throwing him an avalanche of cheesy 2-yard dink attempts in the Wuss Coast offense, and not anything of value.

                  But alas, this concept continues to boggle the braintrust in the media. The San Jose Mercury wrote, "Raiders Coach Norv Turner had no explanation Monday for Rice's diminishing role, other than to say: 'It's a different offense, a different style of offense, and we have a lot of people playing.'"

                  Hey, geniuses -- how exactly is this "no explanation"??

                  The fact that it's a different offense is the exact explanation.

                  Truth is, Rice's skills only translate to the gimmick Wuss Coast offense. When he ended up in the Raiders' traditional offense by mistake, his skills became garbage. Other smaller, faster receivers that can actually get open down the field are more valuable to Norv Turner's scheme.

                  The explanation that eludes the faculties of our lovable media is simply put: end of WCO, end of Jerry. It's just that simple. It's the same reason Steve Young was worthless in Tampa Bay. It's a shame it took 20 years until Rice ended up by chance in a real offense to finally see the truth we've known all along come to fruition. Too bad we never got to see Joe Montana leave the shelter of the cozy dink pass offense.

                  Same old class
                  As the clock ran down and it was clear his little streak was going to end, Rice started throwing his helmet and kicking things and muttering to himself on the sideline -- while his team was winning.

                  When the apocalypse actually happened and the game ended without the Divine Catch being bestowed upon the Almighty, the media spin started kicking the helmet of truth. Even though all reputable...

                  News
                  The Seahawks released wide receiver Jerry Rice on Friday. Jim Steiner, the agent for the NFL's all-time leading receiver, said his client asked to be released. "We asked for his release, and obviously they want to accommodate him," Steiner told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Steiner added that Rice is still interested in returning for a 21st season if he can find the right situation. After joining the Seahawks in a mid-season trade with the Raiders, Rice had 25 receptions for 362 yards and three touchdowns.

                  we are possibly a couple days away from signing him.. adam shefter reported about two weeks ago that the rams, titans, and giants were the front runners to get him.. he said that rice would wait until 1 week prior to the season opener to pick a team.. I think he would only be a situational pass rusher here but i love depth and experience.
