  • Was 1995 the best season ever for wide receivers?

    What do you guys think? Even in today's NFL with more inflated stats than ten seasons ago, 1995 still holds a huge significance for wideouts. I can't think of a season that has been better. Also, do you think this says something about the teams at the time compared to the teams of today? Here is a list of the receivers from that year, categorized by yardage:

      WTF Herman Moore had 1700 yards? How did the rest of the NFL let this happen?

        The Lions had TWO receivers with at least 100 catches, 1400 yards, and 9 TD.

          Brett Perriman and Jeff Graham from the Lions and Bears had over 1300 receiving yards that season. Everyone was ballin.

            Herman Moore was a beast. He had a four year stretch when he averaged 1362 yards and 10.5 TD per season. I wouldn't say he was ever an elite receiver, but he was consistently at the top of that second tier.

              Yeah but guys who go for 1700 yards are usually elite receivers. Granted I was 4 years old in 1995 but I'm just saying I don't remember him being good enough to do something like that.

                    Yes. He was a good receiver. One of the best that no one ever talks about. It's really a darn shame.

                        haha. I used to love Carl Pickens.

                        These numbers are just ridiculous. And Larry Centers was just insane.

                        As for Moore and Perriman...Scott Mitchell never came close to duplicating these numbers again. It was like that one good year by Derek Anderson. It's just never going to happen again.

                            Don't forget Scott Mitchell throwing for 4000 yards that year. That is far more amazing than any of these stats.
