Was 1995 the best season ever for wide receivers?

      Herman Moore was for damn sure an elite receiver - for about 4 seasons.

      The Lions' 1995 offense was just about unstoppable, except for Mitchell's tendency to throw for tons of yards in a game and then pee himself at clutch time.

      Also, I'm sorry DMW but the Lions weren't running a run-and-shoot in 1995, nor any part of one. They had abandoned the last vestiges of the run and shoot a year or two before and gone back to having tight ends. In 1995 the Lions ran a single-back, three-wide attack most of the time, with Moore and Perriman as we mentioned both going over 100 catches, and Johnnie Morton adding about 40 and 7 or 8 TD's as well.

      And who was their offensive coordinator running this scheme? Tom Moore. He basically perfected this scheme with the Lions and then took it to Indy where it's made Peyton Manning one of the all-time greats.
