Who's Largent? Never heard of him. What'd he do, run for 20 yards? You folks need better players players up there in raintown...
Bottom line, Jerry's a legend who's still playing. It was gracious of Largent to offer his jersey number, and even more gracious of Jerry to accept it. Largent should feel honored that anyone of Jerry's stature would deign to wear someone else's number, let alone his.
Enough of this shoulda/woulda/coulda retired-by-now gobbledy-gook, if the current wideouts in the NFL were better than him, Rice wouldn't have a job now. He's in Seattle because you guys NEED him. You should be happy.
just my 2 cents
