    Buccaneers | Rice says he's simply the best
    Tue, 1 Aug 2006 09:17:01 -0700

    Stephen F. Holder, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Simeon Rice feels he has not received his due respect throughout his career as the best defensive end in the NFL. "I'm the best at this game," said Rice, 32. "(People) don't want to respect it. I'm what they passed the torch to. Camouflage-wearing, boxer-shoes wearing, throwback jerseys, (I have) my own speech, my own way of doing things. Sometimes I'm right, sometimes I might be a little wrong. Sometimes I might get booted out of the Pro Bowl. But I'm what Bruce Smith and Reggie White passed the torch to. I'm the next level. I'm the bar in this game. Like it or love it."
    Puhleeze!!!

    Once he gets around 200 sacks he can start saying he's the best...but not yet!

    Now if his name was JERRY Rice, he could be saying it now! :lol:

    Rice:

    S: .75

    Freeney:
    T: 2.36
    S: .81
    F: .36

    Peppers:
    T: 3.28
    S: .67
    F: .23

    These are averages per game.
    T=Tackles
    S=Sacks
    F=Forced Fumble

    Looks like he isn't the best at anything.

    Re: Rice claims he's best.

    Tackles- Strahan, Peppers, Rice, Freeney
    Sacks- Freeney, Rice, Strahan, Peppers
    FF- Freeney, Peppers, Rice, Strahan


    Overall it's pretty close.. Freeney takes the cake for Sacks and forcing turnovers.. Strahan and Peppers are more balanced with everythng

    If Rice is talking about career also then he is wrong.. Strahan is way better over his career..

    And today I would take Peppers or Freeney because they are freaks and get to the QB in a hurry!

    Thanks for posting that Del!!

    That is too funny. I wish I had the opportunity to interview him and throw those stats at him.

    Exactly my thoughts Cajun, if it was Jerry I would have no problem but he wouldn't say anything like that.

    There are at least 5 guysin the league right now, not including the past, that are better than he is.

    I'll agree and say that Rice dosnt get the respect Strahan and Freeney get.And I do think he is one of the best in the game currently.His statement is a lil cocky tho.However he is a beast and is one of the best.

    Re: Rice claims he's best.

    Rice has been spouting like this for years ... it really is not all that much of a surprise. I think that he is definitely a top 5 guy in thee league right now ... but I would have to say I would take Freeney and Strahan over him and probably Peppers.
