There were rule changes brought in to open up the passing game before the 1995 season and it obviously took NFL defenses time to adjust. I'm almost sure there were as many if not more players with 100 catches in 1995 than in the prior 75 year history of the NFL. What else can explain Scott Mitchell throwing for 4,000 yds and 32 TDs? ;)

10 guys over 1300 yards, that's pretty amazing. I used to love Carl Pickens and Herman Moore, memory lane seeing their names. Ridiculous catch totals also, funny because teams seem to be passing alot more these days.

The Lions offense must have been balling with those 2 receivers and Barry Sanders.

The Lions in 1995 led the NFL in total offense. I'm pretty certain they are the only team in history with a 4,000 yd QB, 1,500 yd RB and 1,500 yd WR.

For those who were around and following the league that year, this was a big deal while it was happening. Everyone made a big deal about "the Year of the Receiver." During this stretch the record for receptions in a season was broken, iirc, FOUR YEARS IN A ROW.

Art Monk set it in 84 (again, iirc) at 106. This stood for years before Sterling Sharpe broke it in 92 with 108 (fueled by GB lining him up in the backfield and throwing screen passes to him just to get the ball in his hands; at the time I was furious as I desperately wanted to see Irvin lead the league in receiving--which the league defines as the player with the most catches, not the most yards--and I hated Holmgren for using such a cheap tactic) and then broke his own record by posting 112 the next year.

Chris Carter one-upped him the next year, '94, by posting 122 for the Vikings with Jerry and Terrence Mathis (a forgotten player who was very, very good for a time with the Falcons) posting 112 and 111 respectively.

In 95, a whopping NINE players broke the 100 reception mark, after it had only been done EIGHT TIMES IN THE PREVIOUS 35 YEARS COMBINED. Not only did Herman Moore set the record, edging out Jerry Rice and Chris Carter who both tied the previous season's record of 122, by grabbing a late game pass versus Tampa that gave him the record and the season crown, but he also posted 1686 yards which would have beaten Jerry Rice's previous league record (set in 85) by over 100 yards...except it was only good for THIRD THAT SEASON.

Just a crazy season all the way around, and was a resounding statement that the league was undergoing a dramatic transformation into a pass first league.



Also, for those that are into advanced stats/metrics, consider that the guy who had the 5th most catches and the 4th most yards at 111 for 1603, Irvin, had potentially the best season in league history, according to advanced numbers. Irvin's 636 DYAR, or defense-adjusted yards above replacement, during that season stand way above the competition as the greatest in the 16 year history of the stat--a mouthful considering that that span included a good chunk of Jerry Rice's prime and the entire career of Harrison, Moss and Owens. There have only been 5 other seasons of over FIVE hundred in DYAR (Rice 94, Rice 95, Harrison 01, Harrison 06, Moss 07) history, with Moss' 07 coming in second at 569, still a long ways short of Irvin's 636. 95 was also the only season in the history of the metric to have TWO 500+ DYARs (Rice and Irvin) and was just short of having FOUR of them (Moore and Bruce both posted 470 DYAR).

Phenomenal stuff, just an amazing season for high end receiving years, one that may never be matched again. You had four All Time greats (Rice, Irvin, Carter, Bruce) at the top of their games, some great short-life greats in Moore, Mathis and the Pack's Robert Brooks lighting it up, and the league was just about to get hit by Owens and Harrison (both drafted the following year) and Moss (98).


A true convergence of events.

Thanks for the insight. I wasn't that old at the time, so I don't remember it being that big of a deal. But I do a lot of research and for a very long time this year always stood out to me. Funny no one ever talked about it.

I remember Robert Brooks.

This was when the NFC Central straight balled at QB minus Trent Dilfer's 4:18 TD to INT ratio.

Another thing that's forgotten, the following year was the year of the kicker. Go look at PKing stats for 1996, they are insane.

Good read DMW, I don't remember it like it was yesterday, but I do remember that season somewhat.

Oh, and I think Herman Moore was definitely elite at points, not Moss/Rice elite, but he was as good as someone like Esteban Ochocinco at points.

It was just fading away. The Oilers had gone away from it, Buffalo and Atlanta had just started deserting their versions. The Lions were still employing a lot of those elements as, iirc, they did not even have a TE on the team during this particular season.

Most of the top teams did it with traditional and very balanced offenses, though. San Fran had a solid all around offense, obviously. Dallas may have been the most balanced team of all time. Even Detroit featured one of the all time great RBs playing near his peak. Minny was a very good running team as well, though they were definitely a pass happy one.

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.
