Can Randy Moss break the TD receptions record?

Postby jcde7ago » Sun Nov 18, 2007 11:24 pm

The record for most TD receptions in a single season is held by Jerry Rice, catching 22 TD passes in a span of only 12 games.

Through 9 games, Randy Moss has 16 TD catches, and technically he is on pace to shatter 22 in a single season and could even break that mark through the 12 game mark.

Any thoughts/over-unders on if Randy Moss is going to break the record, by how many games in, and how many TD's total at the end of the year?

I am absolutely thrilled at the thought of having a QB who's going to break the single season TD passing record and his receiver who will potentially break the TD receptions record on my fantasy teams. ;-D

He may get there. If he doesn't get there in 12 though the record will have to have an asterisk.

The 12-game thing would be cool, but I'm sure Moss will break Rice's single-season record regardless.

He'll get the record but any knowledgeable fan will know Rice had the better year. Imagine what Jerry would have had that season if they got in 16 games. He might have hit 30.

Moss is a great player and it will be a nice accolade for him but I can already here the annoying Patriot fans who will start proclaiming him as the greatest of all-time when in reality he is not even close.

not even close? Have you seen him play? Jerry played 20 seasons randy is working on his 11'th. I think it's far fetched to say that moss will be healthy for 9 more years, but if he's healthy for 4 or 5 more years, he may put up a fight for jerry's TD record.

Watching him this year has been a pleasure. He is still uncoverable one-on one. In the Bills game one of his TD's came against a safety (37) 1 on 1. I'm not really sure why anyone would ever want to leave him in single-coverage, but as long as people are doing that Moss will continue on his pace to break the record.

I don't think the question is CAN, it's WHEN will the Patriots (And Moss) break just about any single season passing record kept...

There is nothing that will slow them down. A Brady injury would hurt big time but he's hardly even getting touched by an opposing defense the Patriots O-Line is playing that good.

wouldn't it be something if Brady keeps on this pace and throws for 60 TD's this season? Wow that would be downright awesome. If they stay on pace Moss will easily break the TD receptions record by a mile.

Jerry Rice is still the best receiver in history, but I'm afraid his record won't last much longer. Moss would be even closer to it, if he and Brady didn't sit out almost ever 4th quarter.

Wow....really? Not even close? When its all said and done, Moss will probably go down as the best receiver of all-time. I think he will break all Rice's records. The guy is only 30 or 31 years old. I don't see why he can't play another 5, 6, 7 years.
