I beg to differ iowa.
Rice was a solid 2nd round pick who showed a lot of ability in his rookie season. His sophomore year was rough and I believe he had to battle through an injury as well.
He was going to have a good year with or without Favre, but obviously having Brett there did make him that much better. I certainly wouldn't say that Rice was "crap" before Favre got there though.
And did you just say that Favre was as good if not better than Marino???????
Wow. What have you been smoking lately? Rice did not show "a lot of ability." 31 catches? Heck, Miami "crap" receivers had a 4th rounder catch that many his rookie season. Rice's second season saw 15 catches in the same amount of games. Yet he was poised to have the season he had with or without Favre? Put down the reefer.
Also, no I did not say Favre was as good if not better than Marino. I specifically said I was NOT arguing that.
