Was 1995 the best season ever for wide receivers?

    I don't know much about Carl Pickens in the pros other than he fizzled with the Titans.

    College Carl Pickens was a straight beast though.

      lol Isaac Bruce had 1,781 yards receiving with Chris Miller as his Quarterback.

      Funny thing is, Reverend Ike didn't even make the Pro Bowl that season.

              That part isn't weird.

              Hell, 23 receivers went over 1000 yards this year.

                Fitting that Jerry Rice had the most yardage. Too bad he didn't break over 2,000 yards receiving.

                    I noticed that, but it was a completely different time, rules-wise. You can't get a finger laid on you these days after five yards without getting penalized.

                      The evolution of defenses and overall athletcism of the defenders have deflated stats. The disbursement of the yards is spread beyond just 2 receivers and a tight end. Most teams only had 2-3 players with 40 receptions or more. It's just the overall evolution of defenses, penalties, game plans and play calling.

                        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? ;)

                          All I can remember about Carl Pickens is him catching 60 yard rainbows from Jeff Blake. I swear to god the ball would go as high in the air as it did far down the field.

                            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.

                              not really. 20 receivers went over 1000, three tight ends did too.
