    I definatley agree with Randy Moss being #1 on this list.

    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.
    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.
    I don't think SI was speaking merely on the stats, but the overall package. I think it would be tough to outdo do that impact!

    #1 positive impact, #1 negative impacts could be kijana carter, tony mandarich (packers) and brian bosworth.

    Randy Moss was literally unstoppable as a rookie, 'nuff said.

    Daunte a hall of famer? Are you on crack?!

    The jury is still out on Moss too. He had a great first 6 years, but year #7 was pretty shaky and he has yet to win anything. I think Moss MIGHT make it, because I think last year was kind of a fluke. I think he'll be back as one of the league's best receivers next year and if he can sustain that for another 4 or 5 years he has a shot to make the hall.

    Daunte on the other hand...no way! He has had 2 really good years and 1 OK year. He's also had 3 so-so to bad years. He's also only ever been to the NFC Championship once and the playoffs twice. You'd be better off arguing for McNabb in the HOF! Daunte in the hall of fame...:roll:

    Huh? Barry had a good rookie year but nothing better than other RB's.

    1470 yards and 14 TD's.

    I figured you would chime in about Pep.

    Yep, your right! But a WR is still only as good as the QB.

    Dickerson was the MAN!!! Over 1800 yards his rookie year...Barry Sanders is probably the best RB ever, but Dickerson was right up there...and certainly more productive his rookie season!
    1800 yds is great for a veteran, much less a rookie. i have to disagree though on two points. walter was probably the best rb ever. and after that monday night game in green bush in randy's first year i could never put any rookie ahead of randy. that game was maybe the most satisfying game i remember as a viking fan, going back to the 70's
    Well, we have to agree to disagree...while Sweetness WAS a very classy guy, he just didn't quite have the moves that Barry had...very close competition, but Barry wins out...just imagine what he could have done behind a REAL O-line!
    When, exactly, did Walter Payton have a "REAL O-Line"?

    The argument for best ever RB has two names - Payton and Brown.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
