Jerry Rice takes offense to Seahawks celebration on 49ers field


Sure, Jerry Rice played for the Seattle Seahawks at one point in his Hall-of-Fame NFL career, but his heart will clearly always be in San Francisco.

Seattle dominated the 49ers on Thanksgiving night in Santa Clara and while a number of 49ers supporters weren’t happy with the game, Rice was especially unhappy with how Seattle celebrated after.

Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman, who were the players of the game, were asked to eat Thanksgiving dinner at midfield while talking about the game against their bitter rivals.

As a Seahawks fan, I loved it.

Rice wasn’t so happy about the set-up:

For Rice’s information, it was the crew of NBC’s Sunday Night Football who, on Thanksgiving night, traditionally ask the players of the game to join Michelle Tafoya at midfield for a post-game interview with Thanksgiving dinner.

It’s something that has happened a few years in a row, though Rice apparently didn’t get the memo.

I don’t think it was disrespectful of the Seahawks at all to eat the turkey at midfield.

I’m sure if the game was in Seattle and the 49ers won and ate on the Seahawks logo on CenturyLink Field, Rice wouldn’t say the Niners “cuda shown some respect.”

Seattle won the game fair and square and the 49ers will have their chance at revenge in just a few weeks.

The Seahawks will host San Francisco on Dec. 14 in the 49ers first time back to the CLink since they lost in the NFC title game back in January.

The win on Thursday night gave Seattle an 8-4 record and keeps them competitive in the NFC West. The 49ers dropped to 7-5 and have a much steeper uphill battle if they still want to make the postseason.

I didn’t have any problem with the Seahawks eating on the 49ers logo.

Did you?
