Has anyone else trained with Rice?

I remember NFL films broadcasting a feature on Jerry's workout schedule. After watching, one gets an idea what it takes to be the GOAT.
already like this kid for working with Jerry...

WE ARE LOOKING AT YOU CRABS

And so it begins... good luck everyone else in the league!

Man, watching Jerry run the hill and listening to him talk just makes me believe that he could still step foot on the field and do well. Truly the GOAT.
I think this is more about AJ understanding the history of this team. Plus He knows it will take a lot to get on the field so better become an early fan fav.

On another note, I would sign Rice right up if he could still take those hits at 50 lol.
This whole story is Crabtree hater-bait.


I do hope that AJJ takes to Rice and if he can become an elite talent at WR then thats all gravy but how many great players trained with or anything like Rice's insane workouts. It may have been a part of Rice's success but I don't think its indicative of anyone elses potential success. Especially considering there HAS to be advances in nutrition, exercise technology, and trainer and physical therapy education as time progresses. There has to be diminish returns on such a strenuous workout compared to what Strength and Conditioning coaches would be putting the players through.

I'm all for rice's input in the X and O's, in's and outs of being a WR but I'm not much a fan of his take on conditioning. While it worked for him, i'd bet many others would break down prematurely and unnecessarily trying to do what he did

I certainly don't see him making this a regular thing, there are other exercises out there that can be even better for sprinting and endurance without having to worry about rolling an ankle or something on a rocky dirt trail.

But as I see it, it can be a good test for a player. Like one of those "do you have what it takes?" things. Then when you do that and you make it the whole way you know that you're conditioned to still have enough juice in you to sprint full speed in the 4th quarter when you're tired from running the whole game, for the catch that wins it.

I'd only expect him to do it every once in awhile just to put in work and see where he stands.

As for crab, I don't see why people are hating on him so much for not working with Rice. If anything it was the fact that he wasn't working AT ALL, missing every offseason for one reason or another. Working with Rice doesn't mean he's going to be like Rice.

If I recall correctly Ricky Watters trained with Jerry on The Hill

The fact that after running that he wasn't out of breath boggles my mind. No wonder he was able to turn it on even late into games.

Crabtree had every intention on doing so before suffering a(nother) lingering foot injury. Honest.

FTFY.

Walsh once said that one of Rice's best attributes was his stamina. I look at this as an opportunity for AJ Jenkins to get welcomed into the family and soak up as much information as he can. He is going to have some pretty good teachers in Rice and then Moss about the nuances of playing receiver in the NFL.
anyone who hasn't trained with rice is a diva
