We take a look at Jerry Rice's comments about Calvin Johnson potentially breaking his single season yardage record.

17 seasons ago, 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice set the single season mark for most receiving yards with 1,848. That was a particularly notable year as four the top 15 single season yardage totals came from that season.
