"In pecking order, this is Joe's offense, then everybody else," Rice said Thursday. "And he's proven that this preseason with how he's played, his tempo, how vocal he is, and the quiet Joe phase I think is pretty much over. He's been outspoken – and I guess you guys get to see it more going into Year 5 – but for me and him, we came in together, and I think he's going to prove to everybody why he's a top quarterback in the league. And going into this game, I'm confident, he's confident. I just can't wait to get out there with the guys so we can go out there and show guys what he's really capable of doing."
