Jerry Rice Inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame

Since the day he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 1985, Jerry Rice had a work ethic unmatched by the showboating and selfish players of today. He holds more records than any receiver in history, many of which will never be touched. After playing for 20 seasons, it was pretty much a given that he would enter the NFL hall of Fame.

Yesterday, Jerry Rice fulfilled his destiny and was inducted into the Hall of Fame, cementing his place in history as the greatest receiver of all time. Claims for any other player will go unsupported, for they just don't have the numbers or the work ethic to back it up. The only thing that might go against this claim would be that Jerry Rice caught passes from the greatest quarterback of all time and therefore made catching passes that much easier.
