Being ... Jerry Rice
Page 2 staff

He spent his first 16 NFL seasons in a 49ers uniform, but Jerry Rice wore the silver and black of the Raiders when the two clubs clashed in San Francisco on Sunday. So, what was on Rice's mind? Page 2 reveals all:

"We're not in San Francisco anymore, Toto."

"I never can get used to the sight of a legend wearing a different jersey at the end of his career."

"Imagine the numbers I'd have put if I hadn't had to adjust to that damn left-handed rotation on Steve's passes."

"Am I ever going to retire? I started with the best QB ever, moved on to the top-rated QB, and now I'm with a crafty veteran. When I see Cade McNown over center, I'll know it's time to go."

"On the other hand, maybe it's time to go when your coach is younger and better looking than you."

"I've got to remember to talk to Tim next week. At his age, I'm sure he won't mind taking a secondary role in the offense."

"You gotta love a guy who bases his business strategy on episodes of 'The Sopranos.' "
