A Question of Records

Someone here mentioned a fact that continues to captivate me.

When Randy Moss got traded, his first team (Patriots) had not yet had their bye week, so he played four weeks for them. Then he reported to the Vikings, who had already had their bye week, so they had 13 games left.

This would mean that, if the buffet line food had been good, he could have played in 17 regular season games this year.

So what happens in a situation where a top-line player gets in this situation and sets a single-season record in the final game of the year? If he's a running back and gets 2,110 yards or a receiver who sets the record for receptions, or a linebacker who gets 23 sacks, does it count as normal? Should he get an asterisk? It's not his fault that he ended up playing in 17 games, and if he had ended up in the opposite situation and fallen five yards short because he only got 15 games in, I doubt that people would be calling for him to be named the record holder.

So what do you do in that situation if you're Roger Goodell's green-visored recordkeeper?

Poll coming.unless I get traded to another board in the next five minutes.

there are soon to be 18 game seasons, so this wouldnt matter much this year. but is a very interesting concept of record keeping. I say give it to them, they earned it, you could make the same arguement for a team that plays in multiple overtime games. Hypothetically say the same team plays in 6 or more long overtime games and puts up extra yards in each overtime (charles had like 50 yrds in overtime on sunday)

You have to give it to them, it's a season record not a 16 game record.

I'd give it to him. I would argue that it's easier to set a record in 16 games, than it is to do it in 17, but half or more of them come after a mid-season trade in which you have to learn a new offense, new QB, etc.

It'll be interesting to see how many records are broken when they move to an 18 game regular season.
I say no record for anyone who plays over 13 games in a season!

There will never be a player with a record breaking year that gets traded mid-year.

Records set in 12 game seasons were broken by players in 14 game seasons, which in turn, were broken by players in 16 game season, so what difference if it's 17 games?

Especially since we're getting ready to go to an 18 game season.
