    He was a BIG part of why we were so good in 1998 and no rookie has ever had an impact like that.

    Moss caught 69 passes for 1,313 yards and 17 touchdowns.

    Let me know when someone breaks that record.
    Yea, but not without Pep. There are others that are better.

    Defenses had to game plan around Moss. Other teams eventually felt the need to start drafting or signing larger CBs that could keep up with him (didn't the Packers draft three CBs the following draft?) He had Nintendo stats his first year.

    Yeah, I'd say that's an impact.

    Pep wasn't around in 1998. He was drafted in 1999 & sat on the pine. 1st two years with Randy was Cunningham & George.

    Amen! To be listed ahead of Eric Dickerson and Lawrence Taylor is quite an honor. Man, I miss the '98 season!

    We must have been typing at the same time, and I ain't a trailblazer with the keyboard. You hadn't posted yet when I started my response.

    Which record are we trying to top? Anquan Boldin went for 101 catches and 1377 yards his rookie year ... so nabbed two of the three right there ... the TDs are quite impressive though.

    Oh, I wasn't mad or anything. I just thought it was an odd coincidence.
