I was tempted to induct a Quarterback as the inaugural member of The Hard Part’s Football Hall of Fame, but Jerry Rice is just too damn good. He was lucky enough to play with two incredible QBs during his time in San Francisco, but you can say the same of the QBs that were lucky enough to play with him. He was selected to Pro Bowls in three different decades, the last at the age of 40. You’d know he was an unbelievable receiver just by looking at his stats but if you haven’t seen him play, please take minute to check out this video. Jerry Rice is the greatest football player of all-time and it’s hard to argue otherwise.
