49ers legend Jerry Rice says the NFL is softer now plus talks about how tough it was playing against Deion Sanders on Laugh Out Loud’s “Cold As Balls”.
This week’s episode of “Cold As Balls” from Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud features Hall of Fame legend Jerry Rice.
In the episode, Jerry joins Kevin in the ice tubs to talk about Deion Sanders and how tough it was playing against him.
He even states “If Deion was on the opposite side, it was goin’ down.”
He also expresses his thoughts on the league today and players like Tom Brady — saying that the game is much softer now and the players much more protected.
Episode Highlights Include:
- Rice talks about how we are currently in a new era of football. For example, defensive linemen used to be able to drive Joe Montana into the ground or hit him low – “You had to be a gladiator on that field… it’s a softer game.”
- Jerry shares that in his opinion, Terrell Owens is the closest comparison we have to DK Metcalf when considering build and position in the NFL.
- Jerry dishes on his relationship with Deion Sanders and how difficult it was to play against him. He even states “If Deion was on the opposite side, it was goin’ down.”
- Jerry tells Kevin he played the game of football scared, and that’s how he reached such high levels of success. “I used to run like I had stole something.”
