Jerry Rice joins the KTLA Morning Show to share his thoughts on the Super Bowl and Owens

Jan 23, 2007 at 10:57 AM--


San Francisco 49ers legend Jerry Rice joined the KTLA Morning Show this morning to promote his new book, “Go Long!: My Journey Beyond the Game and the Fame.”

When asked who he thought would win the Super Bowl, Jerry replied, “I’m going with the Colts. I picked them to be in the Super Bowl. I also picked Dallas, but Dallas came up a little short. Now they don’t have a head coach. Y’know, Bill Parcells, he decided to walk away. I think Terrell [Owens] ran him out of the Big D. But, I got to go with the Colts because I feel like it’s time for Peyton Manning.

Anchor Michaela Pereira then asked, “How does a class act like you feel about a guy like Terrell?” Rice replied by saying, “I thought I passed the torch on to him the right way, but somewhere, he lost it…He leaves San Francisco, goes to Philly. Him and Donovan McNabb, they get into it, then onto Dallas and it’s still going on so I am a little disappointed by it.”

Entertainment reporter Sam Rubin then asked if Rice ever feels compelled to call Owens up and ask, “Hey, what’s the deal with you?” Rice said, “I would love to do that, but I don’t think he is going to listen. Y’know, Bill Parcells couldn’t get through to him and I think that’s why Bill Parcells decided to walk away.”

Later in the show, anchor Carlos Amezcua asked the popular question, “Who was the better quarterback? Joe Montana or Steve Young?” Rice laughed and said, “You know what? I think that I would have to go with Joe Montana. And I am fortunate to have had two Hall of Famers to play with me and these guys, they made my job easy.”

By Kirk Larrabee

The last thing the San Francisco 49ers want right now is to play another game on the turf at MetLife Stadium after what they went through Sunday afternoon, but that's exactly what they'll have to do next week when they come back there to face the New York Giants. The 49ers were able to cruise Sunday to a 31-13 win over the New York Jets on the stadium's new turf, which was installed over the offseason. Both the 49ers and Jets came out of Sunday's game with a number of injuries, and while not all of those may be able to be blamed on the turf, the 49ers made it clear following the game they found the new surface to be problematic. "It's new turf, new field turf. It's always pretty tricky to play on until it's nice and -- not beat up, but nice and worn down and
