He shoots down all me-first antics that you’re used to seeing from his position these days and rarely touches on the subject of individual accolades, admitting that wins are his sole motivator.
So I’ll do the honors of highlighting his season performance.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is on the cusp of history.
On Sunday the six-year veteran passed Santana Moss (93) for the second most receptions (96) in a single season in franchise history.
With two games remaining, he trails Art Monk by 10 for most catches hauled in by a Redskin in a single season (106).
What are the odds he’ll pass the Hall of Famer who set the record all the way back in 1984?
Well he’s recorded at least five receptions in every game this season, so the likelihood that he’ll at the very least tie him is practically 100 percent. I don’t know about you, but I like his chances.
More from this week’s stat ranking update:
Since he doesn’t have much else to fall back on this season in terms of season totals, I’ll give quarterback Kirk Cousins‘ Week 15 rankings against the competition:
–Yards: 381 (5th)
–Completions: 29 (5th)
–Touchdowns: 3 (Tied for 4th)
–Quarterback Rating: 94.8 (14th among quarterbacks who started the game)
Alfred Morris had a roller coaster performance that we aren’t used to seeing.
He actually got more than 12 carries, but he also fumbled twice.
His day ended just two yards short of eclipsing the 100-yard mark for the fourth time this season.
–Yards: 1,125 (5th)
–Average: 4.8 (Tied for 3rd among running backs with at least 100 rushing attempts)
–Touchdowns: 6 (Tied for 14th)
Here are Garcon’s numbers/rankings as they stand now:
–Yards: 1,146 (10th)
–Receptions: 96 (2nd)
–Touchdowns: 4 (Tied for 47th)
Who takes home the prestigious most tackles belt by season’s end?
–Tackles: Riley Jr. 103 (Tied for 23rd)
–Tackle: Fletcher 98 (33rd)
I told Brian Orakpo that I used to be a quarterback in the hall yesterday and instead of asking me how my very short-lived career went as a gun slinger he sacked me.
Per the ushe for No. 98 this season.
–Sacks: 10.0 (Tied for 11th)
