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.”

In May, a frustrated Javon Kinlaw lashed out at Sports Illustrated reporter Grant Cohn after calling into his video podcast. Equally frustrated teammates came out in defense of Kinlaw's actions. Things escalated to the point where San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch had to sit down with his player and the media member to hash out the situation. Kinlaw's teammate, tight end George Kittle, joined the Bussin' with the Boys podcast this week and was asked about the drama that unfolded between Kinlaw and the reporter. "It

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle made headlines last week, telling Kevin Hart on the LOL Network show, Cold as Balls, that he would love to see the NFL add a second bye week. "Seventeen games is a lot," Kittle said. "It's a lot of games with one bye, whether it's Week 4 or the bye is Week 11. I'm advocating for two byes." Kittle is preparing to enter his sixth NFL season. San Francisco made the tight end a fifth-round draft pick in 2017. While he has come close to winning a championship, he has yet to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Kittle came extremely close during the 2019 season. However, he watched his Niners collapse in the

In May, former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst Ryan Harris made headlines stating that sources inside the San Francisco 49ers shared doubts about second-year quarterback Trey Lance. He also said that some expected Jimmy Garoppolo to start come Week 1. Harris rejoined CBS Sports HQ to share his thoughts on two big 49ers-related offseason storylines—Deebo Samuel and Garoppolo. Earlier this offseason, Samuel requested to be traded after watching several of his wide receiver peers cash in while the 49ers star waited for his own contract extension. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. However, the quarterback

The days surrounding July 4th are more often than not one of the slowest times of the year for NFL content, which makes it an opportune time to shamelessly borrow another site's good idea. With that in mind, let's build off a feature that was published earlier today by NFL.com that selected one player from each team that could be in line for their first Pro Bowl appearance in 2022. Feature writer Nick Shook selected running back Elijah Mitchell for the 49ers, pointing at the unexpected level of success Mitchell had in his first NFL season after being drafted in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. "The 49ers enjoyed quality
