Epic battles between two players who may have been the best ever at their positions.

Our own Mark Collins, provided some epic battles against Rice, as well.
that was cool

it seems like many of the times Sanders won it was because of innacuracy by the QB. But it is fun to watch both of them play the route faking/guessing game. Both were really savvy aside from elite athleticism.

Deon on Calvin Johnson, now that'd be something ...
one thing that's always bugged me about Rice:

He tends to awkwardly shoehorn in comments about how hard he worked and how hungry he was.

We get it already.
Like, Deion's all

"I always respected you, we always had battles and shook hands afterwards."

and Rice is like,

"Let me tell you why you respected me. I always worked!"

Yup, he really does love to pat himself on the back.
Rice definitely likes to toot his horn or hard work,

but in his case it was true. He didn't have the speed and size of other top nfl wideouts. His success came from hard work and smarts. Deion, on the other hand, was a great athlete.
on hard work

I dunno

Of course Rice worked hard, but it's not like he was a slow smurf. He didn't time well, but he sure didn't lack for meaningful athleticism.

His tendency to lionize his achievements by talking endlessly about how they were purely the result of will and hard work gets annoying.
would love to see
