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.”

Former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields will work out in front of several NFL teams today, including the San Francisco 49ers. The New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, and New England Patriots will also send representatives to the quarterback's second pro day in Columbus, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch will represent the 49ers. Because NFL coaches will run it, the throwing session will have more of a feel of a private workout than a pro day and could raise Fields' stock in the eyes of Shanahan and the 49ers, who own the No. 3 overall pick. Hall of Fame wide receiver and 49ers legend Jerry Rice had some words for the incoming rookie quarterback ahead of his workout (h/t to

Pelissero: Justin Fields and Trey Lance pro days to feature drills and throws from 49ers practices

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold a second pro day workout on Wednesday. Five days later, Trey Lance of North Dakota State will take part in his second. Both are trying to ensure that they are selected ahead of Mac Jones of Alabama. Trevor Lawrence of Clemson is expected to be drafted No. 1 overall. The New York Jets are expected to select Zach Wilson of BYU at No. 2. Assuming San Francisco targets a quarterback, that leaves Jones, Fields, and Lance as San Francisco's choices at No. 3. Jones is the overwhelming favorite to be the pick if you ask members of the national media. Fans would much prefer the more athletic and higher ceilinged prospects in Fields or Lance. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch chose to attend Jones'
