@a57se I know one of the less obvious ones is Moss who I believe had 10 in 2003.  Walker obviously did it in 1986 (12 in total IIRC).

@a57se If you're including the coming season, I'm assuming the sixth is Sheldon Richardson. 

Bent

@a57se I'm enough of a nerd that I do recognize most of these numbers and can probably work out the rest by a process of elimination.  I'll let someone else have a shot though.

@a57se @Bent It's one of them things that if you didn't already know, you'll take ages to guess it.

@a57se @bob Ken O'brien wasn't bad, he was always underated, if he had a better line, I'm sure we would be talking about him in the same breath with Dan Marino.

Oh bummer I know or Bret Favre. Close but no cigar. I say awe shucks,

Bent

@a57se @Bent Interestingly these don't represent the top six seasons in terms of yardage in Jets history, just the best season for each of the top six guys.  The guy at number one also had the 2nd, 3rd and 5th best season in terms of receiving yards.  Nobody else's second best season was in the top 10.
