Moss Threatening to Break B. Mitchell's Receiving Record

Since we have a Portis-Davis poll, I thought we could have a similar one regarding Santana Moss closing in on Bobby Mitchell's single season franchise record for most receiving yards.

According to Redskins.com Moss needs to average 81 receiving yards per game to break the Redskins' single-season receiving mark of 1,436 yards by Bobby Mitchell in 1963. Mitchell, of course, set the record in just 14 games.

But shoud Moss and Portis both set individual records for yards rushing and receiving this year what a statement that would be for the progress our offense has made.

i say yes. Moss will get hot in his last few games and do it on his way to the Pro Bowl.

Re: Moss Threatening to Break B. Mitchell's Receiving Record

I think portis is a top 5 back. always have. some people havent.
I thought Moss was a one dimensional WR. He is. but that dimension is GAMEBREAKER!.

Our offence has struggled most of the year. its down right pathetic considering how well portis and moss are playing. hell even brunell was considered for comeback player of the year...

I hope they both break it.

Btw, i was thinking of brian mitchell when i saw the title of this thread

Re: Moss Threatening to Break B. Mitchell's Receiving Record

Honestly, I think Moss will shatter it in like the last game v. the Eagles....I think he'll have like a 200 yd game before we're done this year.

But what does this really say about the "U" as well? I really don't care for some of the players and their attitudes sometimes, but that program has helped our team a helluva lot!!!

I might add, seems like Moss, Portis and even Taylor are consumate team players.

Haha! Me too!

I think either CP or Moss will break the record, but not both. Unless we win out, in which case both must break the record.

Yes, because he is on my fantasy team. Not to mention he adds 10 yards to almost every catch in RAC.

No, because, as others have pointed out, other teams are trying to to neutralize him.

Re: Moss Threatening to Break B. Mitchell's Receiving Record

Without a doubt. This team has a new attitude. They are playing with almost a chip on their shoulder. Moss with get the ball doubled up or not. I would not be suprised to see both have big games this sunday with the Cards. Portis is on a roll and Moss is overdue.

Re: Moss Threatening to Break B. Mitchell's Receiving Record

the thing i was pretty happy about last week is they went ahead and finally decided to throw to moss in double and triple coverage. He got a good gain when doubled and almost pulled the ball down when tripled... for a 5'8" guy, he sure is good with jump balls.

Is that his real height? He's listed at 5'10", but I know that means nothing.

Well I'm just over 5'7" and I've stood nearly eye to eye with Moss so I'll say he's closer to 5'8"

Add two inches for the helmet and you have 5'10''.
