You'll have that when you only have three none rookies at the skill positions (and one of them is now on IR) that saw major playing time during the season :)

 

Just more proof about how great of a draft class Grigson had and how unreal this year has been. 


Thank You Peyton! I look forward to the day you come home and we get to do this good bye thing right!

Edge had 2139 of those yards in 99.  Wilkins 565.  So two guys had only a few hundred less than Luck (rushing?), Fleener, Allen, Hilton, Brazill and Ballard.  As good as this draft class was and is, those numbers remind me how great Edge was.

Edge was unbelievable prior to his knee injury. I still remember my negative reaction when Polian took him over williams, and then that quickly going away once Edge hit the field.

The sheer volume of production from multiple members of this years class is crazy.

I'm slightly confused by this. Didn't Andrew Luck throw for 4k?

i meant brown I just didn't cont collie because he only played in one game so I don't think he really saw significant time.

Rushing and receiving yards from Luck, Ballard, Allen, Fleener, Hilton, Brazill, Dominique Jones (8) and Nathan Palmer (-4) equal 3108.

Yards from scrimmage are the sum of receiving & rushing.

That makes sense. Thanks for educating me on that term.

Makes the record all that more impressive when u add in a rookie QB throwing the ball....
