(Yesterday, 9/28) Irving was selected with the first overall pick of the 1984 NFL Draft, becoming the second wide receiver to be taken number one overall. He came here and did his job. The media lambasted him after his pregnant wife stabbed him before the '86 AFCCG. I suppose they would have done the same to Russell before the 7th game against the Lakers if they knew the story about inoculations prior to a trip to Africa was made up; that in fact he'd been stabbed in the arm by his jealous mistress. Oh well. We won the game despite Roland James' struggles with punt returns; and he caught a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

Oh, and of course Russ played like a lion winning another Celtics title (in excruciating pain).




Caught touchdown passes from 19 different quarterbacks, an NFL-record. Here they are:

Perhaps it is just me, but I don't have particularly fond memories of Fryar.

Didn't live up to draft expectations; off field issues; then went to a division rival and performed better than he did in Foxborough.

I remember more clutch catches he made here than I can count. At Seattle in '85, at Anaheim in '86, many more.

Not his fault he was let go; see above

Officially, he was traded...Damn shame he couldn't have stuck around for the '96 SB run, or perhaps even beyond...Who knows, maybe he doesn't get into as much trouble later in life than that into which he wound up getting, anyway...

edit: oh yeah Fryar was ok... hard to believe he caught more td's from Marino than he did Grogs... yeesh

Oooooooops!!! I goofed.

"The Patriots were more or less forced into making the Fryar trade. He was to become a free agent at the end of the 1993 season and had made it known he did not want to return to New England. If he had been allowed to leave, the Patriots would not have received compensation."

Well, he did get to catch passes from Dan Marino. What is it about Florida?

Fryar ended up only serving 8 months on a 5 year jail sentence for mortgage fraud. Any body know if he's living under a highway bridge now?

One of my favorite players from back in the day. He was special. Sad that he finished his career in Miami. I wish the current team had a true #1 WR like Fryar. None of us are perfect. We all have demons and issues to overcome.
