    Default Deckers 10th TD Lost in the Shuffle....

    Nobody seems to be pointing out anything except the record breaking 51 touchdowns. But Deckers 10th TD makes him the fifth receiver (edit and correction: fifth player)on the team to have double digit TDs.

    Since prior to this season I think there were only a couple of teams that had touted three receivers with at least 10 TDs each including the 98 Broncos with Davis, McCaffrey and Sharpe.

    But when Welker hit his 10th we became the first team with 4 receivers that each had at least 10 TDs.


    And now.....with Deckers 10th......we have set the standard with 5 receivers with at least 10 touchdowns each.



    Thats an amazing stat.

    GO B R O N C O S!!

    I was thinking about this. I assumed someone already made a thread about it. I was wrong.

    This isn't 100% accurate

    Although the Broncos do have 5 players with at least 10 offensive TDs, they only have 4 with at least 10 Receiving TDs:

    JT & DT with 12 each.
    Decker & Welker with 10 each.
    Moreno has 10 RUSHING TDs, but only 2 Receiving.

    Still, its a very impressive feat & a testament of how deep our receiving corps is.

    Oh. That's what I thought he meant.

    4 players caught 10 TDs or more
    1 player ran for 10 TDs or more

    Caldwell could become the 5 Bronco with 5 receiving TDs if Manning throws him 7 of them against the Raiders

    The Broncos are better off without Decker.
    Resign DRC and Caldwell.

    DE Jared Allen.
    FS Jairus Byrd.
    MLB Arthur Moats.

    Yup, we can further note one of receiver's a TE, but few teams have had 10 receiving TDs by 4 different players in a year (even on those few, I believe all had 10 from a non-WR.) AllThings18s charted receiving yards, but of the mere 5 trios who've each gotten 1000 in a year, just one also managed 10 receiving TDs apiece; perhaps unsurprisingly, it was Harrison, Wayne and Stokley.


    That doesn't mean no other team ever managed 3 or even 4 receivers with 10 TDs apiece in a season, but I'm aware of none. Typically QBs have one or maybe two go-to guys, maybe a possession receiver for 3rd down (e.g. Stokley and Welker) and one or two others picking up scraps/subbing during injury. Manning spread it around to whoever was open, and if Pollard hadn't head-shot Welker we'd not only have 4 receivers with 10 TDs each, but probably have 3 WRs with 1000 yds each (for the sixth time in NFL history.)

    Maybe that's why there is a clip of Decker hiding the football under his jersey. Some one took his so he decided to steal mannings 51st

    Outstanding achievement! They mentioned it on air last night but it certainly did get l lost in the shuffle along with Knowshon surpassing 1,000 yards.

    I think most of us said that Decker wouldn't get a big contract from the Broncos, and I still don't think he will. He's certainly earned a nice contract but I'd rather use that money for DRC, Chris Harris, or DT next year. He has played better than I thought he would this season, but I still don't think he's a superstar like DT.
