It’s always fun to speculate on what could be, in particular when it comes to sports.
In the 93-year history of the National Football League, we’ve seen great players give us great performances. And that could be either record-setting seasons or just one memorable afternoon or evening.
In any case, here’s a stroll down memory lane focusing on 10 NFL records set (for the most part) at least five seasons ago. There’s one milestone in particular that has held up for more than half a century.
In this piece, we opted to stay away from a few records that were recently set, with a few exceptions. In 2011, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw for an astounding 5,476 yards. And this past season, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson set a new mark with 1,964 receiving yards (could 2,000 be on the horizon for him or another player).
So who will make history in 2013? Unfortunately, we still have about six months to wait in order to start answering that question.
