Outrageous Stats

VikingDudeVikingDude Posts: 1,301 ✭✭✭

I just heard a stat the other day and I wonder what other stats are out there that seem too outrageous to be true? I'll start - Justin Jefferson already has enough yards in 3 years that he would be #2 all time in Chicago Bears history.

    Chicago has never been known for their passing offense and I doubt that will change anytime soon.

    Jefferson is a mammoth talent, far better than any WR Chicago has ever had but to be that high on that list at this point is crazy

    this one is still my favorite

    Stan Musial played for 22 seasons, partook in 3,026 games, amassed 12,718 plate appearances...................and struck out 3 times in the same game once in his entire career

    and being a lifer Bears fan, the OP's stat is indeed remarkable.............that is, until you take a look at our quarterbacks

    then it's easier to grasp

    How about Khris Davis. 4 straight years had a batting average of .247

    Vikes top 19 rushers, very comparable to the Bears which I was surprised seeing how much stronger the Vikes are in the receiving stats
