This team had 2 players that tied for the league lead in rushing TDs. Another player on that same team was 1 TD behind them.
Two of the three are QBs

The starting TE, SE, and FL all averaged over 20 yards a catch.
I am eagerly anticipating a book to be published about this team later this year. ;)

Tough question on the receivers ... I know John Gilliam just missed but he averaged over 20 yards per reception from 70-73

Warren Wells might have done it also without being incarcerated.

The same team that led their league on points scored, yards gained, and turnovers lost. The only other offense (that I've found) to lead their league in all three categories (most points, most yards, most turnovers) is the 2001 St. Louis Rams.

Gilliam missed by 3 yards in 1974 or he would have hit 20.0 and 4 in a row

The 1979 Steelers led in all those categories as well.

1962 Oilers were outscored by 2 points otherwise they would have been in

I'm a Hall of Fame running back who rushed for over 6000 yards and played 9 years all for the same team. Only one of my offensive lineman got to a Pro Bowl and that was for 1 year. None every made 1st or 2nd team All Pro.

bolded is the real gist of my question - Anyone else ever accomplish 6k with so few honors on their O line?
