They were talking about Rice being the GOAT at WR and Crabs said something along the lines of "I don't know about that". The host started grilling him about it. He went silient and eventually backtracked.
EDIT: to keep it on topic...he shouldn't be resigned b/c of this. not srs
Crabs thinks he's better than rice.
When I think about what Rice did and how long he did it and the fact that he was still at his peak at the age of 35 before the fat f&ck Warren Sapp tore his knee up on a bulls!t tackle, I know that he was the best. Jerry Rice trained to no end and his production up until father time came calling was the evidence. 35 YEARS OLD and you are still at your peak fresh off a season with 108 rec and more than 1250 yards and one season removed from more than 1800 yards receiving!! Now you compare that to Moss at 35 and you see a big difference.
Sapp blunted Rice's career arc and he never caught 100 balls again but he still remained a 90 rec 1200 yard rec when he was 40 YEARS OLD!!! Who in the hell in today's game with all the science and medicine can say that?? Crabtree might still be bitter about Rice's criticism of him during his holdout, but no one can take away what Jerry Rice did and he was the GOAT, no matter what position in football. Name me a receiver that had a better career and to stay at the top as long as he did was Jordanesque. Crabtree and Rice need to make up and all our receivers need to get some tips. The GOAT is a phone call away.
