I saw this mentioned in the Pro Football Hall of Shame book. Great source material surprisingly.

Well, Jim Brown is going to be one of those.

Joe Perry got to his 20th 100-yard game in Jim Brown's rookie season.

If you are including Perry's AAFC years, his 20th 100-yard game occurred on 11/30/58.

If you only count Perry's NFL years, his 20th 100-yard game occurred on 9/17/61.

Brown's 20th 100-yard game occurred on 9/25/60. But I understand your point, so...

Well, my first guess after Brown and Perry was that Steve Van Buren might have done it - so close with 18. Of course, he had a few 10-game regular seasons.

My next guess - Gale Sayers. 20 exactly.

And then my next thought was Elroy Hirsch - that's it. 24 games.

EDIT: Okay, now I see I clicked the receiving yards column. PFR has those listed first on his profile. But I still got Sayers right.
