Trivia of the Day – Sunday, September 2nd

Get your roll on 'Pepp'.

Coming up with trivia questions every weekend isn’t as easy as you might think. Or, if you think it’s easy, submit them to chase [at] footballperspective [dot] com. Otherwise, you’ll get oddball questions like this one today.

Daunte Culpepper’s 2004 season was one of the most incredible in football history. He gained 5,123 combined passing and rushing yards, which stood as an NFL record until 2011. He also threw for 39 touchdown passes and ran for two more, making it one of the most impressive statistical seasons in history.

It’s tempting to give all the credit to Randy Moss, but that was actually Moss’ worst season in Minnesota. Due to a hamstring injury, he was inactive or ineffective for five games, and ended the year with only 767 yards. That brings us to Sunday’s trivia question. Can you name the player who led the ’04 Vikings in receptions?

    I think I should probably feel somewhat embarrassed that I immediately said, “Burleson led in yards. Wiggins led in receptions.” I’m not even a Vikings fan.

    I had a fantasy team that year where I had Culpepper and Moss. I remember the horrible pain in the neck it was dealing with the Moss injury, and that Culpepper’s dominance had a great deal to do with the fact that it didn’t matter much in the end. Because I ended up steeped in that team’s season (and because it was my first year of undergrad and I had very little to do), I can remember all of these bizarre little facts about that team.

    And in 2005 I fully invested in Daunte Culpepper for a dynasty football league that we were forming. My team was mostly horrible for 6 seasons, largely because of that poor investment.
