With another 1,000-yard campaign, Wayne would tie Mar-vin Harrison for the team record in 1,000-yard seasons witheight. He is currently one of eight receivers in team historyto accomplish the feat. If Garcon reaches the mark thisyear, he would be the ninth player in club annals.

One of the things that we all sort ofmarveled at was how quickly he was able kind of adapt andadjust, but I think that’s the thing that you find out with theolder guys in the league. They understand systems well,and they can just sort of do a real good job of being able totranslate the information and function fairly quickly.”
