Funny, but I don't think he held on too long. 2004 seems just right.

I agree, even on a down season this year he still managed almost 900 yards.....that was with the meltdown that was Oakland, I'm betting he goes over 1000 next season.

Looks like Larry Fitzgerald would be a perfect fit in Oaktown. Spend a year behind the greatest of all time, and then try to fill in his shoes.

Heck nobody could fill in those shoes.

i agree I think he should keep playing. He isnt at all what he used to be but he is still a better than average reciever, a great #2 or a capable #1.

I don't like athletes playing into their twilight years, but whatever. The thing I don't like more is them coming out and telling us they are retirering 'this is my last year'. Shut up and tell me you're done when you're done. Do they have to have a year long kiss-my-a** fest? Maybe I'm worn down by Michael Jordan's 12 retirement tours.
That said, I would like to see Rice go back to the 9ers for his last season, put up his average numbers and make the probowl. They could replace Too Outspoken with Too Old.

I can see the "too long" thing. Not just because of his performance level, but also the team's performance. Go out after his very good 2002 season, when the Raiders made the Super Bowl, or suffer through a 4-12 debacle in 2003 and a rebuilding process in 2004? The great ones hate losing so much, you know, and Jerry Rice is the greatest.
