Yea mort was saying staying in good health was more important than football to him, and apparently he's opening a few restaurants! I think we as fans take for granted just how taxing this game we all love can be on players!

 

 

Hope he enjoyed having money in his pockets.

Seems like odd timing to make the decision right before camp. If he was concerned about his concussions why did he visited other teams this off-season?

I wonder if the quick retirement has anything to do with the possibility of the news coming back out that he was messing around with underage girls while in Minnesota. That got circulated again last week when Chris Kluwe mentioned it might come out in his lawsuit.

One season was not like the rest.  '09 was an anomaly.  The difference?  Brett Favre.

The difference was after that season he kept getting hurt. Look here Mr. Madden just because Brett Favre can throw a football 200 yards underwater doesn't make him the team nutritionist and trainer too.

How about his previous two seasons? He had a dramatic jump in '09 and then injuries became an issue afterward. Look, I know you're a Gamecock homer, but Rice never came close to that season before or after '09. It's not a coincidence that it just so happened that was the year he had a HOF QB throwing him the ball.

Ok then if this is the game we're gonna play. 

 

 

All of like 3 of those had something to do with Favre. Rice flat out raped the DBs on a lot of these just as bad as Alshon did this past year with Mccown throwing him the ball. He got the injury bug and never got over it after this. poo happens. I'm also pretty sure that its known league wide that year 3 is the sweet spot for Wide out development.

Keep on drinking that SCAR kool-aid. Rice was a one year wonder and that one year happened to be the year when he played with a HOF QB, that's the only things we know for certain.

All the kids want to be like him here. I hate he had to go so soon but at least it was on his own terms.

Wasn't it a matter of injuries and not a matter of talent?
