Jerry Rice on 49ers’ upcoming three-game stretch: ‘They gonna win them all’

Nov 18, 2019 at 12:30 PM--

We'll know a lot about the San Francisco 49ers by the afternoon of December 8. That's when the team wraps up the toughest part of its schedule, a three-game stretch that includes the Green Bay Packers at home, and then road games against the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints.

All three opponents are a combined 24-6.

The 8-2 Packers head into Levi's Stadium on Sunday night (the game was flexed into SNF) to face the 9-1 49ers. Jerry Rice, who joins 95.7 The Game each week during the season, says a start like the one on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals will not suffice against Aaron Rodgers, who he suggests may still hold a grudge against his home-area team.

"The most important thing against the Packers, they can't start slow," Rice said on the "Joe, Lo and Dibs" show. "They've got to start fast because you know Aaron Rodgers is going to come into this ball game wanting to beat the Niners because he's still a little pissed off that the Niners didn't draft him."

So how does Rice think the 49ers will do during this challenging three-game stretch?

"They gonna win them all," Rice responded.

Rice added: "The Niners are going to do it, man. I'm serious. They're going to find a way. Yeah, they've got a big task coming up with the Packers, but this team is going to rise to the occasion, and they're going to get the job done."

You can listen to the entire conversation with Rice below. It begins at about the 23:10 mark.

49ers history: Boos from fans, pep talk from Joe Montana motivated Jerry Rice to be great

Jerry Rice finished his career with 1,549 receptions for 22,895 yards with 197 touchdowns. All are NFL records that will likely stand for a long time. He is the greatest receiver ever to play the game. It is difficult even to contemplate anyone ever trying to debate that. During Rice's rookie season in 1985, however, he looked like anything but a future Hall of Famer who would one day be considered a player with some of the surest hands in the history of the game. Rice discussed overcoming some early NFL adversity during the now two-year-old "Breaking Ground" documentary that first aired during Black History Month in 2018, and was recently

49ers: Shannon Sharpe makes a case for Jerry Rice, not Tom Brady, as the GOAT

Tom Brady is pretty good. He's a future first-ballot Hall of Famer and could continue to impress as the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jerry Rice was pretty good too and is already in the Hall of Fame. He is considered to be the greatest receiver ever to play the game. Is he, not Brady, the greatest player in NFL history, though? Shannon Sharpe made the case this week to his Undisputed co-host, Skip Bayless, who scoffs at the idea. It was in response to this article from NBC Sports Boston, where Tom E. Curran makes a case for Rice over Brady, which is probably seen as blasphemous in the Northeast. Sharpe isn't necessarily
