Jerry Rice: Tom Brady can have the GOAT status

Getty Images

Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice has sometimes been called the best player in NFL history, but Rice says he’ll hand that status to Tom Brady.

Rice said today on 95.7 The Game that he believes he played football during a tougher time than Brady, but he’ll still defer to those who call Brady the greatest.

“I don’t have seven Super Bowl rings, but I think I played in an era when football was more of a contact sport. You’re seeing a lot of that now — players are protected,” Rice said. “When you have seven rings, you’re doing something right. I think with Brady, he still wants to play. He said something about playing until he’s 45. I think he can do it now in this league because players are so much more protected. So, yeah, he can have that GOAT status. I never wanted that status anyhow.”

In 2010, NFL Network released a ranking of the Top 100 players of all time that had Rice No. 1. Another such list today would surely have Brady on top.

  1. Passive agressive Jerry Lee Rice, Sr. : “I was better because players are protected now.”

  2. Jerry… Brady has been playing for 21 years.. he was winning Superbowls back when players weren’t protected like they are today.. he missed almost an entire season to a torn ACL.. did Rice ever suffer a major injury?

  3. well jerry’s got a point. brady is always crying to the refs the minute anyone comes near him.

  4. He’s not wrong about the state of play, but they’re both great and would be on my Mt. Rushmore if I had to enshrine the four greatest. Brady is defying Father Time and is playing against elite players who grew up idolizing him. Receivers today try to outdo Jerry’s magic.

  5. …and Jim Brown played during a tougher time than Jerry Rice (and I haven’t heard many say Jerry Rice was better than Jim Brown any way)

  6. Rice had a HOF QB and played for a HOF coach for most of his career, so it’s kinda hard to tell how good he really was. Had he been on the Detroit Lions he might have been just another guy.

  7. Otto graham came from an era when you played defense as well. This GOAT talk is so recency biased. One of the best – I get…but so many different eras and all and rules and playing defense and offense and calling your own plays or having designated coordinators….it all makes it too murky and invalid.

  8. The cool thing is, this “GOAT” talk (Rice-Montana-Brady) all ties back in with the 49ers one way or another.

  9. Brady and Montana aee on a different planet when it comes to playing qb and being winners. For that reason calling Brady now and Montana before the best is a valid argument.

    But the best football players, imo is a little different. I would have Rice, Brown, Barry Sanders, and Reggie White at the top of that list.

    Jerry… Brady has been playing for 21 years.. he was winning Superbowls back when players weren’t protected like they are today.. he missed almost an entire season to a torn ACL.. did Rice ever suffer a major injury?
    ———–
    Back in 97 he tore his MCL and ACL in the season opener. I’m not a TB fan but do respect him. Sorry Jerry, nobody let him have GOAT status, he just freaking took it!

  11. Jerry Rice is a legend and I respect his body of work as the greatest receiver of all time. That said, most of his comments in recent memory reek of passive aggressiveness and insecurity.

  12. They both bent the rules so then there’s that. Easy there Jerry. How many QBs won rings with you? How many receivers has Brady got a ring with?

  13. Jerry Rice doesn’t want the GOAT status because he can’t have it. Brady took the GOQT status over 4 years ago.

  14. Playing in 10 Super Bowls – and winning 7 of them, at the game’s most important position – over the course of a 21-year (and counting) career is unparalleled.

  15. I don’t think you can really fairly equate positions Iimbeing the Greatest of
    All time. If I had to… I’d say Brady but the positions are so different and the times aren’t the same.
    Back in the day dbs could also murder you. It is definitely a more offensively favored game but let’s be honest. Great players could transcend eras. Rice, Bruce smith, Marino, Montana….. are we to believe they wouldn’t be as great in today’s game? No. Of course they would be

    Just like brady would
    Have been great in the 80’s

  16. I’d like to see Rice in his prime in this era. I’m not sure how he would do because of the speed and size of today’s players. His route running and competitiveness would still be an asset. It would be interesting.

  17. I watched Jerry Rice play his entire career and he was excellent – but, I was never of the thought that he was the GOAT, he was just a receiver with not one, but two first ballot Hall of Fame QB’s throwing to him. I don’t know that a WR can actually dominate the way a QB or pass rusher can?

  18. Back before Jerry played, WRs would get clotheslined. They had jobs when they weren’t playing ball, too. Just saying.

  19. First of all, Joe Montana is the GOAT. He won two Super Bowls before Rice ever got to SF, including their best season 18-1 in 1984. Rice came in ’85. As soon as Joe took over as the starter he won the super bowl his first year. He could do everything Brady could do, and Mahomes. If you’re looking at stats, Brady has the most super bowl wins, so based on that criteria, there is no argument. If you sat down and watched all the tape, you’d say Joe was better. But heck, if you only went by super bowl wins, only 4 QB’s in history were better than Eli Manning. But this is a time to celebrate the awesomeness of Tom Brady. I think it’s the best story in NFL history. Brady deserves everything that gets thrown his way. I’m among his biggest supporters. It’s just that there’s this Montana guy, and they haven’t erased all that film.

  20. Now wait a minute Jerry, Rodgers will have something to say about that, ’cause in his mind he’s the goat.

  21. This top 100 from 2010 sure needs an update because Brady since then, reached the Super Bowl 6 times, with 4 rings in the process.
    Rice is still in my view, the greatest receiver, and Brady the greatest player.

  22. The top 100 list of 2010 sure needs an update because since that time, Brady reached the Super Bowl 6 times and got 4 rings. I still consider Rice as the greatest receiver, but Brady is the greatest player.

  23. Jerry’s not wrong but Brady doesn’t need to apologize that he CAN KEEP PLAYING because of today’s rules. The rise of woman’s flag football is coming and when the W-NFL is lauched you heard it hear first, I’d say within two years max a 8 team league starts. The new normal NFL does not involve tackling.

    BTW,
    Anyone who did not win money on Brady being an underdog in his last 3 playoff/superbowl gamss should resolve their membership to PFT.

  24. @thereraider Rice did suffer a major injury. He tore his ACL when horse collared by a Buccaneer!

  25. Gotta love when a guy gives something away (like the title of GOAT) that isn’t his to give away.

  26. It continues to annoy that people keep saying that Brady “has won seven Super Bowls”, as if football is not the ultimate team game.

    Also, I still don’t get why Belichick doesn’t get credit for “winning eight Super Bowls” since he has eight rings…

    Plus, if you’re going to use the “rings” logic, Robert Horry was a better basketball player than MJ.

  27. With all due respect to Jerry Rice, I don’t think Tom was waiting for his permission to take it.

  28. I’ve never liked all this GOAT discussion/debate. It’s a team sport! This isn’t like playing one on one basketball. There are so many great players who have come and gone, are still playing now, and have yet to play. Is Brady one of the All-Time Greats? Absolutely!! There is no individual that is the greatest of all time in a team game. A better discussion would be to debate the greatest Teams of All Time!

  29. I love when people still say Montana is the goat.

    It helps fuel Brady for another season.

    See you in February

  30. Jerry Rice is the greatest player just like Ron Turcott is the greatest jockey. Who was Ron Turcott? The jockey who road Secretariat.

  31. Era is irrelevant. If Brady’s era is so easy why has no one come close to his success? Jerry played with and against many hall of famers but none of them could match him. They were both all timers and that’s all anyone needs to know. That, and Brady has played so long that he covers 2 or 3 football generations and many rule changes.

  32. Baseball, basketball, hockey – each player plays offense and defense, so its fair to compare all players together.

    With football, you really have to evaluate best player SPECIFICALLY by position. Its a complicated game, with unique skills needed by each player, offense, defense and special teams.

    Argue all you want, but keep Brady with the QBs, Rice with the WRs and Brown with the RBs.

  33. The problem with Jerry is he played too long.

    If we had only the memories of when he was the scariest player on the field and then quit after the first 10 years we would still be talking about that instead of his longevity.

  34. can only be a qb because other positions matter so much less. they are about limited physical performance no thinking or team leadership required.
    Among qbs there is ZERO discussion with no one remotely in brady’s rearview even bradshaw and montana are tiny specs in the distant dust.

  35. I wonder if Brady sends Mo Lewis a card every season to thank him for nearly killing Bledsoe on the sideline and jumpstarting his epic career.

  36. Greatest is subjective !! Depends on whom you talk to from different generations..

    If stats were to be used to measure greatness, Tom will be way better than Jerry.. To Jerry’s point that players are more protected today – Brady had 3 SB prior to rules changing to protect QB more… so, Tom had 3 SB when players did not have that much protection followed by 4 SB after and combined with longevity, stats and mostly no name receivers throughout (Brady made those receivers legit), there is no question that Tom is undisputed GOAT!!

    Hard to catch 7 SBs in this day and age, no one including Jerry needs to hand GOAT status to Brady !! It’s Brady to have for ever, respectfully deserved!! Maybe they change the SB finals MVP to Tom Brady MVP !!

  37. Brady is not the greatest QB. SB wins are a team effort. He didn’t win them by himself. He’s had tons and tons of help.

  38. Do you really want to talk about being the GOAT Jerry? Isn’t that a bit of a ‘sticky wicket’?

  39. “Back in 97 he tore his MCL and ACL in the season opener. I’m not a TB fan but do respect him. Sorry Jerry, nobody let him have GOAT status, he just freaking took it!”

    And it was against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when Warren Sapp took Rice to the ground by the face mask as he ran past him on an end around. Dirty play by a dirty player, so Rice might still have a little hate for the franchise.

  40. I’m glad for the changes to the league. I know people, who in high-school, took guy’s knees out because they thought that was how the “big boys play”. It was much more gridiron in the day. But that doesn’t make it better! That is also how these players who sacrifice -28 weeks of harcore work, travel, bruises, injuries,time away from family are making money befitting their skills and sacrifice.

  41. Didn’t Brady literally beat the Raiders with Rice on them on his way to his first SB? LOL cmon Jerry no need for an underhanded comment, give the GOAT his props.

  42. Tom Brady sucked all the joy out the game for me personally, I used to love football with a passion.. I’ll still read,talk, or play FF leagues..

    When it comes to games i’m hardly ever excited anymore, Superbowls i haven’t even watched the last five. He has tortured me for about 20 years at this point and accomplished literally everything I had hoped my team would one day accomplish just once.

    I find myself not really caring about football anymore because this corny old dude is gonna be in the superbowl no matter if my team does poorly or good.. where is the joy in that for anyone not from New England or Tampa.

    Jerry… Brady has been playing for 21 years.. he was winning Superbowls back when players weren’t protected like they are today.. he missed almost an entire season to a torn ACL.. did Rice ever suffer a major injury?
    ________________

    In week 1 of the 1997 season, Rice tore his ACL and MCL. On week 16 of that same season, Rice returned to play and fractured his Patella. He was 35 years old. He went on to add 6400 yards and 42 touchdowns after returning from two major knee injuries in his mid-thirties. For reference, Julian Edelman has 6800 yards and 36 touchdowns in his entire career.

  44. Tommy is the greatest of last 20 years. Can’t say of all times. Ur trying to compare apples and oranges in different 20 year spans. Football was very different 60-80s, 80-2000 and 2000 today’s. Very doubtful Tommy would have lasted 5 years in the 60-2000 years. He also wouldn’t have been where he is if Bill hadn’t drafted him. Where would Tommy be if the browns had taken him way back when? Tommy has been very lucky, first Bill then nfl rule changes and then being able to pick the team with most talent to go to. Very lucky dude indeed.

  45. it’s time to get off the Brady train, long fueled by quantity at the behest of quality;

    Brady is a very good quarterback, but there are several critical factors that are overlooked in anointing him;

    first and foremost, he has played his entire career in a quarterback-friendly era where you simply cannot touch them, particularly him and Princess Rogers;

    the proof in that Brady has long benefitted from the NFL version of the Jordan rules is the year he got hurt on a freak tackle the first game, the NFL changed the rules on how quarterbacks could be touched;

    Rich Kotite made Randall Cunningham lose his knee in very similar circumstances by forcing him to be a standstill pocket quarterback;

    Akili Smith, Greg Cook and Greg Landry had their knees ruined on similar hits but the NFL didn’t change rules on tackling QBs in any of those cases;

    as such, the NFL Jordan Rules have allowed Brady to be the beneficiary of entirely too many highly suspect calls in league and postseason play for it to be merely luck or happenstance (videotape, anyone? three straight third down pass interference calls on the critical drive of one Super Bowl, open taunting in the most recent one, no holding penalties on the entire offensive line throughout one entire postseason);

    Brady would not survive the NFL that Montana and Fouts and Namath and Namath and Unitas and Lamonica played in, yet with the benefit of NFL Jordan Rules in the current NFL and basically not being touched twenty years, several of those quarterbacks and a number more (Marino, Young, etc.) would produce a like record;

    Brady is good, but he is nowhere near the best ever, unless quantity supersedes quality;

  46. It becomes easier to pad your stats, win games, etc when your drive is extended cuz of a roughing the passer or helmet to helmet hit or hitting a defenseless receiver committed by the defense in today’s NFL. You just get more chances…and this helps extend ones career

  47. In the smash mouth era, Montana was GOAT… in today’s era, Brady no doubt. Just two completely different eras with completely different rules.

    TB 12 played against Rice on multiple occasions. No era talk
    ——
    That’s not really fair though without context. The years that Brady played and Rice was still playing were Rice’s age 39, 40, 41 and 42 seasons which meant if there was a rule change he wouldnt be the benefactor. That said though its definitely NOT the same era, over the last 35 seasons(Rice rookie year til now) they played in the same season 4 times and 4 of 35 is less than 9%. I wouldnt call les than 9% of a timeframe the “same era”.

  49. Brady is the most accomplished QB. No argument there. However, Super Bowls are a team accomplishment. You’re going to tell me that Trent Dilfer was better then Marino, Fouts, Kelly, Tarkenton, Moon, and YA Tittle? He has more rings than all of them combined. Look at Montana’s QB rating in the Super Bowl and how many times he was well above the rest of the QB’s in his era. Montana was the first and only QB to be the leading rusher in a Super Bowl(XIX), and he never threw a pick! He hung 55 on the Broncos 5th rated defense and was pulled with 11:00 left in the 4th Q. Montana’s 45 point margin of victory (XXIV) is more than Brady’s 10 games combined! If not for the Tuck Rule, Dee Ford lining up off-ides, and two horrendous coaching decisions (Shanahan, Carroll) Brady would be 3-5 in the SB. Montana only got close to losing once (XXIII) because his receivers kept dropping passes and Cofer missed a FG from the 1 yard line! https://www.pressdemocrat.com/sports/8009318-181/grant-cohn-tom-brady-is?utm_source=Sports&utm_medium=impact&utm_campaign=pd_study&sba=AAS

  50. Jerry and others of his ilk always like to point out how “it was a different game back then”, implying that things were tougher.

    What Jerry conveniently leaves out is that he had his Superbowl wins prior to the salary cap era and prior to the current free agency system. Jerry and the 49ers never had the restrictions Tom Brady’s teams had to operate under, and Brady still guided his teams to 10 Super Bowls and won 7 of them.

  51. That’s why Brady will go on proving himself and win more SBs. He needs to prove himself over and over again to gain recognition and respect. No matter what accomplishment he achieves, he’s still treated as 199 and forever the scrabbling second, third stringer QB.

  52. In other news, Marty2019 also announced he was going to let Tom Brady have the GOAT status.

  53. Wow what an underwhelming comment, but I would expect nothing less from sour grapes Jerry Rice.

    He basked in the accolades for years. A WR who had a long career but benefited from playing on loaded teams with two HOF Qb’s. Now someone else is challenging him and what does he do?
    He gives reasons why “his” era was tougher.
    He demeans the player who is challenging his honor.
    After which, to make it even more preposterous he downplays the GOAT/BOAT talk.

    Why does he do this you ask…because he knows he can’t argue it anymore.

  54. Let’s see. D line today. 4-5 guys. 6’5
    350 lbs. 5.0 40s. Ask Mahomes how he feels about that hit from Suh

  55. I may still draft Lawrence Taylor #1 in this fantasy GOAT league. The man still haunts my dreams.

  56. Brady would have never been able to take the hits Montana took and he certainly wouldn’t have played 21 seasons if he played in that era. Montana never lost a super bowl either

  57. Jerry Rice, just went down a notch in my view. At first I thought, isn’t that great, he’s willing to step up and acknowledge Brady’s achievements, but.. … nope he just wanted to blow his own horn and pull everyone’s attention away from Brady onto himself, as he claims in such an oh so subtle way, that he’s actually better than Brady.

    And reading everyone’s comments here, still arguing about who is the greatest of all time, seals the deal really, that you might as well hang up the title. Everyone wants to be kind of the hill and their favorite football player has to be considered best of all time. It’s become meaningless.

  58. Jerry was a great player but doesn’t it matter he played with a HOF or MVP QB almost every season he played in the NFL ? How many years did Moss get that ? It has to count for something how good would his numbers be if he were on the bucs in the 80s/90s or the lions ?

  59. Wow Jerry seems to whine about everything…we played in a different era, Calvin broke my record, Tom has 7 rings….shut up moron! No one cares about you anymore.

  60. Salary cap and free agency. Jerry may need a little training course in current NFL rule book. Tom Brady earned unconditional GOAT status. There are no challengers.

    ———–
    Never losing a super bowl continues to be the dumbest comment repeated to prop up Montana. So instead of making it to the superbowl and losing and being 2nd best it’s better to not get there and be like 10th best team that season?

  62. Rice is the greatest NFL receiver of all time.

    Brady is the greatest player in NFL history.

    There was never a transition of “GOAT” status. It’s been Brady’s for years now.

  63. Rice said today on 95.7 The Game that he believes he played football during a tougher time than Brady, but he’ll still defer to those who call Brady the greatest.

    ===================================================================

    If 2001 Brady and Belichick started in the era of no free agency and no salary cap they’d have double digit Super Bowl wins.

    As to Marino thowing 70 TDs under today’s rules, probably; and he’d still have 0 SB wins. He DID play in the era of no free agency and no salary cap, ostensibly with the greatest coach of the time, and still couldn’t get it done.

  64. Graham did his 10 championship games and 7 rings in 10 years. Best winner ever, can’t argue that. Didn’t play pro ball until 25 due to WW2 service. Also won pro basketball title with Rochester Royals the same year he won first football title. Incomparable.

    =========================================================================================

    Tom Brady Hatorade on full display. Montana was better because Brady is only .500 in the six Superbowls he got to that Montana didn’t get to. By that thinking, Brady would have only be better than Montana if he’d LOST the 2007, 2011 and 2017 AFC championship games. It also again overlooks the fact that the ’49ers were able to keep their superteams together back then and they still only got to four. #SoreLoserThink

  66. Rice is right, but he sounds petty. Brady can’t do anything about the rules, even though they’re awful nowadays (and why only the playoffs resemble tackle football). He can just keep playing and winning til the arm or spirit gives out.

  67. LOL. What? He was never the GOAT. He’s not even the greatest WR of all time. Ya, I said it. Moss was way better than Rice.

  68. Man, he made such a harmless comment. The defensiveness in the comments is over the top.

    Brady’s the GOAT. No one disputes it. It’s going to be hard to hear how defensive his loyalists still get about that for the next few decades.

  69. Rice says the game has changed and he does not think Brady would be playing if the rules were the same. He may be correct, QB’s today are much more protected but what he fails to say is that for the most part, the players today are a lot bigger and faster than when he played. Rice’s 40 time was 4.7 seconds and he was 6’2″and weighed 200 lbs. Devin white, who is a linebacker by the way weighs in at 237 and ran a 4.42 40. Stefan Gilmore is about the same height and weight as Rice and his 40 time was 4.4 flat. So as much as Jerry says Brady would not survive there is a good chance Jerry would not be as successful playing against bigger and faster players defending him.

  70. Rice never “had” the GOAT moniker… He probably deserves the GOAT wide receiver but GOAT “football player” not a chance

    Jerry… Brady has been playing for 21 years.. he was winning Superbowls back when players weren’t protected like they are today.. he missed almost an entire season to a torn ACL.. did Rice ever suffer a major injury?

    Jerry Rice was horse collared by Warren Sapp in ’97
    ending Rice season with a torn left ACL.
    The 1st game of the next season Jerry caught his 1st pass
    for a touchdown as he was hit by Steve Atwater,
    Rice then landed on his left knee breaking his knee cap.
    Rice returned later that season. two years were pretty much non-productive
    for Rice and yet he still holds a lot of records today.

    So yes Jerry Rice did suffer two major injuries back to back.

  72. Rice was the best receiver to play (he played to 43 years old too). Brady is the best QB to play. Barry Sanders is the best RB to play. The GOAT is Brady. 10 Superbowls with 7 wins is not arguable whether he is liked or not. Everyone forgets the defensive players in this for some reason. Aside from Brady there are many defenders that were as good as the offensive players.

  73. Seems like Mr Rice is a little bit salty his His GOAT status has undeniable been usurped.

  74. Rice joined a SB Champion team that was 1 play away from 18-0. He only has 3 rings and 4 SBs to show for 16 years on a dominant team and another in 2002 on Oakland.
    I don’t care how hard people hit him, he is no Tom Brady.

    There are lots of players with more rings than Rice.
    He might be the undisputed stats GoaT because he’s got 32 more TDs than anyone else.

  75. Rice is a bit salty. Brady is GOAT.

    However, don’t question Rice’s toughness. Many people said the ACL injury. In many regards Rice is like Brady – incredible dominance and great longevity.

  76. LOL. What? He was never the GOAT. He’s not even the greatest WR of all time. Ya, I said it. Moss was way better than Rice.
    =====

    Seasons w/most receiving yards
    Rice: 6 (NFL record setter, 1995)
    Moss: 0 (Zero)

    Seasons w/most receiving tds
    Rice: 6 (NFL record setter, 1987)
    Moss: 5 (wanna-be record holder, 2007; Moss 1.43 td/gm 2007, Rice 1.83 td/gm 1987)

    Seasons top 10 receptions
    Rice: 12
    Moss: 3

    Was Moss even as good as Terrell Owens?

  77. Montana got hurt twice on hits that are still legal today.
    On the Leonard Marshall hit he held the ball way too long before that hit.

    Otto Graham joined the NFL in 1950. Everything before that is not relevant.

  78. @charliecharger you have to stop using your personal film analysis as a basis for anything. According to the film per you Luke Falk was the best qb in his class and even recently you called him a franchise qb.

  79. Brady is the greatest, and at this point, it is not close. Jerry is not “giving” him anything.

    The only argument against Brady is that QBs, and receivers, are more protected, which is true.

    The arguments for him are:

    1) Players today are bigger and faster than ever. Brady’s release is as fast as anyone’s, which would have mitigated some of the physicality in the 1970’s, but with Jerry’s 4.45 to 4.71 second 40-yard dash times, I wonder how he would fare against guys running 4.2 40s today.

    2) Back then, there was no free agency, so teams could build and keep teams together for years, whereas Brady does it with a significantly new crew almost yearly. Having a consistently great team around you year after year helps a lot. What would the very accurate Brady, who releases so quickly, have been able to do with a loaded team year after year? He still probably would have won quite a few, if not more titles as long as he stayed reasonably healthy. And despite the criticisms, Brady has always been pretty tough.

    3) If it is so easy today, why is it that only the Mannings and Rothlisberger have two rings compared to 7 for Brady?

    4) Yes, Jerry, you used stickem.

    In the end, it is winning that counts, and Brady is easily the biggest winner the NFL has ever seen.

  80. 4) Yes, Jerry, you used stickem.
    =====

    We’re not going to bring cheating into this, are we, Astros of the NFL?

  81. 1) Players today are bigger and faster than ever. Brady’s release is as fast as anyone’s, which would have mitigated some of the physicality in the 1970’s, but with Jerry’s 4.45 to 4.71 second 40-yard dash times, I wonder how he would fare against guys running 4.2 40s today
    =====

    4.7 40? I suggest you go find some tape, and try to convince yourself that was his speed, as he runs through secondary’s as if no one was even there.

    Rice changed the game with the way he ran routes. He’d be just fine in this day and age. He might even be better in these spread offenses. No one was better at creating space, and thats pretty much all the passing game is at this point.

    And last I checked, Deion was pretty much the fastest guy in the history of this League. He was one of Rices peers, a Division Rival for a handful of years… check out the 9er-Falcon gamelogs for 1990.. let me know what you think..

  82. Sorry Jerry, but Brady has had the GOAT label for quite a few years, in spite of your great career.
