Ja’Marr Chase is very motivated heading into the 2023 season. After the Bengals’ season was put to an end last year after a close loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, it is clear that the young receiver is ready to get his revenge on the entire league.
When asked about his goal for the season, Chase was quoted as saying, “Cincinnati stuff. Stuff to have my name written around this whole facility. Every receiver record they have”. Despite him being one of the top receivers in the league and having the privilege of having one of the best quarterbacks in the league throwing to him, this will still be a very tall task.
Chase is well aware of just how tough this will be saying, “It’s hard getting catches in a game. Especially if you’re doubled and there’s another star receiver on your team. You almost have to catch every pass that comes your way”.
He made a very strong point with this quote. With him being one of the top receiving threats in the NFL, teams frequently attempt to throw multiple defenders at him to slow him down. Along with this, the Bengals have one of the strongest receiving cores in the league. On top of having Chase on the roster, they also feature Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd in their receiving core.
Currently, T.J. Houshmandzadeh holds the record for most single-season receptions in Bengals’ history with 112. Chase already holds the team record for most single-season receiving yards with 1455 he set in the 2021 season. Lastly, he will have to best Carl Pickens who set the team record for most single-season receiving touchdowns with 17.
For Chase to reach his goal for the season, he would have to end the year with at least 113 receptions, 1456 yards, and 18 touchdowns. No player has ever done this in NFL history, and judging by the record books, getting the touchdowns will be the hardest part. However, if Chase is able to pull this off his lofty goal for the season, he will likely go down as having the best single season as a wide receiver in NFL history.
