Jerry Rice sat down for a quick Q&A with the Minneapolis Star Tribune and sounded off on, of all things, Brett Favre. Rice, a fierce competitor in his own right, didn’t exactly sound enthusiastic about another Favre comeback:
You have two quarterbacks, Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels] who don’t know exactly what is going to happen. All of a sudden these two guys thought they were going to be competing. To be honest with you, I thought Tarvaris would be the starting guy this year… Now you have this saga, and everybody is sitting back wondering what is going to happen.
Rice said Jackson or Rosenfels, not Favre, should be starting for the Vikings this year.
…to be honest with you, I think the two guys with the team right now should be the two guys that they should be focusing on.
