So 3 of the top 6 and 4 of the top 12 highest single season receiving yardage totals happened in 1995.

It's actually kind of surprising that no current WR has topped Jerry Rice's mark of 1,848 yards with the way the rules have been changed and the way the passing game has evolved.

One of these years, a freak like Calvin Johnson will break the 2,000 yard barrier.
Scott Mitchell the Lions QB for Herman Moore in 1995, and Barry Sanders the RB.

This would be the perfect time for Hines Ward to retire....he doesn't get separation from defenders these days and is another concussion waiting to happen.

He got his 1,000th career reception the last game of the season and has no milestones left to achieve.

I don't want to see him stumble around for another team next year.....retire the lifetime Steeler that you are.

Following a stellar career in the NFL that spanned 15 seasons, veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason is going to retire.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Mason caught 943 career passes for 12,061 yards and 66 touchdowns.

With Brian Schottenheimer stepping down from the Jets offensive coordinator job, it just so happens another candidate is lined up to replace him.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Tony Sparano is expected to get the Jets coordinator job, with an announcement likely Wednesday. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News confirms Sparano will be the team’s next coordinator.

We'll see. Maybe it's a story of possession passing games bringing these numbers down. It would be an interesting conversation anyway. Nowadays with teams spreading out 4 wides with pass catching RB's plus the prevalence of pass catching TE's, maybe there are just too many receivers on the field for any one of them to grab those kind of numbers?

I think the article and and the guy as a whole are interesting but, at the end of the day, the only reason he isn't one of the all-time greats is because of the drug use. I, personally, can't look beyond that.

The Colts have interviewed Jim Tressel twice about their head coaching position.

I hope it happens....simply because I'd be interested in seeing how it worked out.

I know he worked for the Colts this year as a game-day consultant/replay adviser, so they already have some familiarity with him.

The Colts would go from pass-happy to ultra-conservative football. They would be dumb to hire him as the HC

It wasn't that, though. Many of the greats probably did drugs. It's the fact that he chose the drugs over the career that makes him so stupid. Not that he did them.

He just had to be smart about it but couldn't.

The only drug that sours me on a player is the performance enhancing kind. Players are just men. Some are devoutly religious and live perfect lives, others are complete garbage and borderline insane. Spectrum is filled in between with incredible players. You start basing a players greatness on their personal life and I think you're drifting into an area that is a bit unfair.

I see what you're saying.

I was never a particular fan of his (probably through a lack of exposure) so it wouldn't have been accurate for me to say one of MY all time greats but somewhere in between. I do agree that for things like the HOF, personal matters probably shouldn't come into consideration.

But, in the end, had he not taken time off for his drug use and had kept on his game like he was in the beginning, he very well could've been one of the best ever statistically.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who came up limping in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against Baltimore, has some ligament damage in his ankle, says Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald.

The Cleveland Browns have hired former Vikings head coach Brad Childress as their offensive coordinator, a league source told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen on Friday.

Isn't that really his problem and not yours?

Dude broke the law, yes, but he technically never really hurt anybody but himself with his actions and he's the guy who lives with that. I get tired of people fussing about how dumb some players are simply because they chose to value things other than football throughout their career.
