    Kupp already has the 2nd best statistical season by a wide receiver through 16 games, at 138 for 1829 and 15 TDs. The only better season I could find was Jerry Rice in 1995 had 122 for 1848 and 15 TDs.

    Michael Thomas’ single season reception record of 149 only netted 1725 YDs and 9 TDs. Calvin Johnson’s record of 1964 yards came on 122 catches, and a measly 5 TDs. Like Kupp, Johnson’s QB was Matt Stafford, who obviously knows how to feed a no. 1 receiver.

    Absolutely, Stafford's gone to Kupp all season and no one can complain because the results are there. (At least no rational person can complain but as we know there are way too many lunatics in a country that's been turned into an insane asylum.)

    My only quibble is that they should let Cooper run medium to long routes more often as he can dominate all areas of the field, but that doesn't take away from what's been an all-time great season to enjoy. If he makes it to 2,000 yards that will be comparable to the few running backs who have rushed for over 2,000 yards, which is a magical number in football.

    A few Long routes for Kupp would be nice and save some wear and tear on his body. A lot of his catches he has to break 3 or 4 tackles like a runningback. Which he is damn good at.

    I remember when Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger spoon-fed Antonio Brown a bunch of passes in 2015 to get him an NFL record. I hope Sean McVay and Matt Stafford extend that same courtesy to Kupp. (For that matter, I wonder if any of Baltimore's three black quarterbacks will be extending the Brett Favre lay-down courtesy to TJ Watt this weekend... hahaha)

    The Rams need to get the ball to Kupp early.
    I've noticed in the past 3 or 4 games, Kupp had low yardage and few receptions in the first half.
    Then the Rams went to him in the 2nd half, and his stats came up quite a bit.

    If they make much better use of him in the first half of the game, he has a shot for some of these records.

    Cooper Kupp’s 145 rec 1947 yds and 16 TDs, has exceeded Jerry Rice’s 1995 season as the single greatest all around statistical season for a Wide Receiver. Unbelievably great season by Cooper Kupp. None of us could have predicted such an epic season. It was amazing.

    Truth! Great post and research (the earlier post breaks down the numbers).

    Sorry guys but despite it being incredible he had so little production due to being ignorred in the 2nd half and overtime. To be 18 yards from being number one will always piss
    me off. I would not be honest to say any different. Am I incredibly proud of Kupp? Of course I am! That doesn't change that he should have had way more than
    7 passes thrown his way in a game for so much importance even outside of the All Time NFL Record!

    On a positive note to win the triple crown and be the best nfl wide receiver by a landslide is outstanding!

    This season, Kupp earned the receiving triple crown, leading the league in receptions (145), yards (1,947) and touchdowns (16). Kupp joined elite company, as only three other pass-catchers have accomplished this achievement: Jerry Rice (1990), Sterling Sharpe (1992) and Steve Smith (2005).

    Very good read - enjoyable to see he calls out the caste-speak BSPN regularly engages in.

    Kupp got an opportunity in LA. Heck he was on track for 1,000 yards in his second season but only played 8 games unfortunately. Then hit 1200 yards and then just shy of 1,000 in year four.

    simply put he is one of the top 3 receivers in the league.

    Actually here at CF is was not that far fetched. Cooper Kupp Won the Jerry Rice Award his Freshman season; one of the all time great's you mention.

    Here is the thread started back in 2014.....
    In POST #9 ....I said he can be the next Jerry Rice during Senior Bowl Week 2017 (throw some old school Steve Largent route running in there)

    CONGRATS to Cooper Kupp! He just needed a improvement @ QB/ Stafford
    Hopefully more young white boys watch him on TV and say " you know what i can do that too"

    Where were the HS Recruiting experts on this? Was he even a 1 Star? NOPE ...No Stars (see Adam Thielen) WAS NOT EVEN RANKED!
    .... Ended up with ONLY ONE OFFER at Eastern Washington

    You called it Twenty Two. To think that the world almost didn't even get to see his ability. One college scholarship is just disgusting but not
    suprising in this Anti White World we live in. I'm so happy Kupp made them all eat crow. What an incredible season. Almost 2000 yards
    is just insane to think about. Hope to see him light in up in the playoffs!

    gotta chime in here, in the game against the 49's in overtime ODB played better than the 49's dbacks.....Kupps is shockingly fast fter the catch as many db's can atest to.

    Also names unanimous AP All-Pro today.

    the accolades will continue to roll in. He had, statistically and realistically the greatest season by a wide receiver since Rice’s beat season and honestly Kupp’s was better.
