Saw that on Twitter that ESPN (Eternally Stupid Putrid Network) has again failed to do complete research. Stating that only four men have led the league in the receiving triple crown is not only foolish, the men omitted from the list rank with the greatest/best and of course most productive receivers of all-time. I mean the NFL did start in 1920, right? That means "all-time" starts then? Just checking.
Who should be added to the list you ask? Dave Parks in 1965, Johnny Morris in 1964, Raymond Berry in 1959, Pete Pihos in 1953, Elroy Hirsch 1951, and the Alabama Antelope who is the Babe Ruth of receivers—Don Hutson accomplished this four consecutive seasons 1941 through 1944 and five times overall.
Additionally, Lance Alworth achieved this feat in the AFL in 1966. So, with these seven plus the four since the 1970 merger, the total of receiving triple crown winners is eleven with the feat being achieved fifteen times in NFL history.
Maybe ESPN should have given me a decent offer all those years ago when they wanted to hire me? Then we would not have to be subjected to this complete failure to tell the complete story.
