Jackson Busted The 1,000-Yard Mark

December 5th, 2012

Lost a bit in the Bucs’ loss to the Broncos was Vincent Jackson busting the 1,000-yard mark on the season.

Jackson leads the NFL with 20.3 yards per reception, and he has a total of 50 catches for 1,014 yards. Barring an injury or a complete collapse, statistically this will be the best season of Jackson’s eight-year career.

And none of that factors in Jackson opening up the offense for others and being a strong mentor for Mike Williams.

At 718 receiving yards, Williams has 1,000 yards in reach. Joe’s too lazy to check the statistical history right now, but Joe doesn’t recall the Bucs ever having two 1,000-yard receivers in the same season.

Jackson deserves a tip of the hat. Joe gives him an “A” in his transition to the Bucs and his performance. It would be an A+ if he didn’t get caught at the goal line against New Orleans.

    Carrier and Hill…maybe?

    My 1st thought was Carrier and Hill as well, but unless I am mistaken Hill had his 1000 yard season a year before Carrier.

    I knew the goal line thing would still bother you. I don’t blame you.

    Worth every penny (Carl Nicks also too bad he got injured, Eric Wright was SO WRONG)

    Imagine the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with:

    4000 yrd passer
    1000 yrd rusher
    2 x 1000 yrd receivers

    That is something i would never have imagined in a million years
