DJ Moore: Only current WR with consecutive 1100+ yard seasons?


Recommended Posts

I don't know where this idea came from. But, I've seen it parroted here by different posters for months now. 

Unless I am crazy, this is patently false.

2020 Top 20 yardage leaders

7 Players w/ 1100+ yds both years

S Diggs - 1535 + 1130 = 2665

T Kelce - 1416 + 1229 = 2645

D Hopkins - 1407 + 1165 = 2572

A Robinson II - 1250 + 1147 = 2397

DJ Moore - 1175 + 1193 = 2368

D Waller - 1196 + 1145 = 2341

A Cooper - 1114 + 1189 = 2303

So, DJ Moore is a top 5 receiver over the past 2 years? 

Eh, not so much. Between injuries and Covid, many players didn't play a full 32 games the past 2 years. Edelmen opted out completely, though I'd imagine his stats would be pretty close to DJ's.

J Jones - 1394 + 773 = 2167 (in 24 games

M Thomas - 1725 + 438 = 2163 (in 23 games

D Adams - 1374 + 997 = 2371 (in 26games

And the guy picked side by side with DJ in the draft...

C Ridley - 1374 + 866 = 2240 (in 28 games

You could argue that availiblity is the most important ability.  But, outside of Julio, none of these guys have injury prone histories. And I don't think any rational person would argue that DJ>JJ at this point.  Yet, despite being hobbled by injuries, all 4 out performed Moore when they were on the field. 

Then you have young guys like Jefferson and Metcalf whose stats project out much better over time. They may not reach their ceilings, but they have already done more with their time in the league than DJ did.

All of this is to say,

1. Stop saying dumb poo that is demonstrably untrue. 

2. DJ Moore is not a top 5 receiver in the NFL. He is borderline top 10.

3. DJ is much closer to the Coopers/Allens/Locketts than he is to the Jones/Hopkins/Diggs of the world.

Is being top 10 now bad?

No, and that's the point. DJ is a very good reciever, but let's stop making him out to be something he is not.

I already know I’m catching hell for this but I think he’s one of the most overrated players on this roster 

I won't go that far. I just think, between Cam/Allen/Teddy haters, there's been an effort to make our weapons seem better than they were. Which is weird, because the were pretty effing good already.

I do wish we would've signed Samuel long term (for less than it will cost for DJ) and let Robbie and DJ fight for a contract this year a la Morgan/Witherspoon back in the day

The specific stat is...

DJ Moore is in fact the ONLY WR to post 1175 or more yards in both 2019 and 2020.  

I will admit I am too lazy to look up the exact number and just say 1100+.  But that stat and fact is true and was discussed at the end last season.

Only other player to pull it off was Kelce.   A TE.

1175 lol. Then posts moving.

Well that is the stat the major networks ran with and promoted.  

He was the only WR to post at least 1175 yards in each of the last two seasons.

    • ...Interesting article. It almost sounds like there is a high level plan that Tepper and the city share for that area. Obviously, who pays for what will be the big fight. https://www.wbtv.com/2021/07/22/records-show-charlotte-lacks-money-new-stadium/ ——————— A WBTV Investigation shows the Queen City’s capacity to contribute to stadium projects is much lower than what’s recently been agreed upon in other NFL cities. Financial records shared by city staffers during a Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board meeting show that the capacity to take on debt for major stadium construction is somewhat limited by other projects the city has already financed. ———————— “I don’t feel that the capacity is there at the moment in the existing tax structure,” District 7 Councilman Ed Driggs told WBTV Councilman and financial institution veteran Ed Driggs told WBTV he has doubts about the cities pot of money to pay for the deal. “Particularly because we have a pipeline of capital projects that will probably soak up a lot of that of existing capacity,” Driggs said. In addition to future potential projects like Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts, the city is already committed to $174 million in debt in the Convention Center fund, including more than $100 million for recent convention center upgrades. ———————- Economist Andrew Zimbalist told WBTV that deals between franchise owners and cities that look beyond a specific dollar contribution have proven more fruitful for taxpayers. “Cities are finding it more and more difficult to justify the expenditures as the prices go up in urban areas,” Zimbalist said. “What we’ll do is we’ll give you the land for the stadium. Not only that, but we’ll give you some acres around it for parking lots and we’ll give you some more acres for commercial and residential development and then you can make your money off of those other things that will help pay back.”   That’s not to dissimilar from the plan currently unfolding between Charlotte and Tepper. The City has already reached an agreement with Tepper and a developer for new soccer fields, residential units and commercial enterprises at Eastland. The city is also still negotiating with Tepper around a mixed-use/entertainment district in the area near Bank of America Stadium and the Charlotte Pipe and Foundry property, which could be crucial to the development of a future stadium. Rezoning Pipe and Foundry and using a mixed-use/entertainment district to link it with the Gateway District, home of a future transit center for Amtrak could be crucial to plans moving forward. ———————- “More likely than not, at the end of the day, for the vast majority of these deals, they should not be looked upon as a promoter for the economy,” Zimbalist said. “They’re not going to raise overall employment. They’re not going to raise per capita income, and what you want to do as a city if you want to have a sports team, whether it’s MLS, NFL or NBA or whatever it might be, try to make a deal that is financially neutral.”
    • True that but even if you trade it for later capital, better to get a return on investment. 
    • Everything tells me we are going to go short term high value as soon as free agency drops.
