    Who would you guys say was better in their prime...Witten or Novacek? I know Novacek was limited by injury later in his career but he was a beast in the early-mid 90s.

    He will likely break that since he is the primary target seemingly.

    Unfortunate that neither he, nor Tony G... might never win a ring. They both deserve one.

    I hope he breaks both records actually. He deserves it for the work he has put in over the years. Great player (all-time) at his position.

    Witten. I love Jay, but there's really no comparison.

    At the pace he's on now, averaging about 7 catches a game, he could break the record this week and end up with around 110 just by keeping to his season average. That'd be pretty impressive, breaking they old record by 8 receptions. That's an outlier kind of season...a mark could last for awhile.

    I would love to see him get 10 this game and 13 against the Skins and finish with 120

    I think he'll definately break that record this week. The New Orleans defense is not good at all so Witten should have a very nice game.

    I can see him catching 7 or 8 balls in this game for sure. I'd love to see him wind up with about 10 or so and have a really good shot of breaking the Cowboys all time single season record.

    I absolutely love this guy. He's far and away my favorite current player and only Emmitt Smith is ahead of him as my all time favorite.

    Witten and I think it is by a wide margin. I think he is better at finding and creating space. He is bigger and stronger and probably even has better hands. The 1990s Cowboys would not have skipped a beat had Witten played for them with one exception. Witten is not a holder for extra points and FGs.

    The most receptions Novacek had in a season was 68 at age 30 back in 1992. The most yards was 705 in 1995, his last year in the NFL. Witten averages 79 receptions and 883 yards a season at this point.
