    Speaking of numbers. Booker takes Hillman's job and then takes his number. Harsh?
    Keep in mind that "23" was Booker's college number so he just reclaimed his college number once it became available.

      For six straight years in the early Sixties, Lionel Taylor's production as a receiver was on a par with today's best, and he did it in a fourteen game season before the rules were changed to favor the receiver over the defender. He caught 100 passes from Frank Tripucka in 1960 and had over 1000 yards receiving in 1960, '61, '63 and '65. He was one of the first, if not the first, to post numbers like that as a receiver.

          I had read that Riley was about the only player that did a good job blocking against Dallas in the Super Bowl, and the coaches used his game film to show others how to block. Don't know if that was true or not, but I would believe it, he was a very good blocker and was like a locomotive running after the catch, a big tight end but he could sure move!

            Add Julius Thomas to that list. He had a couple great seasons in Denver.

              I know we talking 23 for other reasons but hard to speak of 23 and not think of Sammy Winder and Darien Gordon (think he wore two numbers with us tho)

              57 Dakota Watson wears reminds me of Tom Jackson. iirc Allen Aldridge on our Super Bowl team in 97 wore it too.
              Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

                Taylor was indeed the first pro WR to catch 100 passes in a season. And, as you mentioned, that was in a 14 game season.

                  I believe Gordon also wore #21 for a season.
