        Lionel Taylor caught 12 in 1960 and Steve Waton broke it with 13 in 1981.

        Of note Watson only caught 18 td in the next 6 years of his career.

        I liked his toughness to Ed McCaffrey though

            How about Anthony Miller in 1995 with 14 TDS breaking Steve Watsons 13 from 1981 is my guess.

              I am an idiot I voted wrong on the poll it should be #2 12 TDs and 21 years.

              I guess I canl't read.

                    I don't believe most Bronco fans realize what we had in Lionel Taylor (although that's easy to understand since his time occurred before many of our posters were born). His name is seldom mentioned in G.O.A.T. discussions, probably because of the Broncos' doormat status of the time, but he may have been the finest receiver of his time.

                    Admittedly, Taylor is not listed in the top 50 in any major category. However, that does not begin to tell his story. Five times in his career, Taylor led the AFL in receiving. One might say, "Yeah, but that was just the AFL," but some of the receivers in that lowly league included Lance Alworth, Otis Taylor, Art Powell, Charley Hennigan, Don Maynard, and others. In 1961, Lionel Taylor became the first receiver in football to achieve 100 receptions in a regular season, a considerable achievement in today's 16 game schedule, but he did it in 14 games.

                    Taylor was Rod Smith and Ashlie Lelie, all rolled up in one. A deep threat, yet unstoppable short. The double move that Rod has wowed us with was one of Taylor's standard moves. I saw him take a short pass in one game in 1960 and outrun two or three DBs, who had the angle on him, for an 80-yard TD. In the same game, I saw him knock a DB clear off his feet with a downfield block.

                    The guy who broke Taylor's record was really doing something. Who was that?

                    I'm not saying.

                      Well since he never scored 14 or 13 TDs in a season well that leaves me with 12. And I picked 12 21 years. I am positive.

                        And what makes him more amazing, is that he accomplished this record in only 12 games. He also caught over 1000 yards and 90+ catches as well. That feed is simply amazing in any era. Lionel Taylor was a man among boys. I'm not sure if he's in the HOF but he should! And something even greater is that he caught 100 passes the following year in 14 games. I guess I never really appreciated Taylor until I actually thought about it.

                            Taylor, Floyd Little, and Randy Gradishar should be in the HOF (and perhaps Billy Thompson, Louis Wright, Gary Zimmerman, and Steve Atwater).

                            But, as of yet, John Elway is the only true Bronco there.

                              If Atwater doesn't make it, its a crying shame. He was the GOAT. IMO.
