Mike Quick and Tommy McDonald are tied for second all-time in touchdown receptions by an Eagles 1,000-yard receiver.

Mike Quick and Tommy McDonald dazzled fans during their respective eras, and both are the architects of 13-touchdown, 1,000-yard seasons.

Tommy McDonald: 1961

Tommy McDonald was a part of the Philly team that beat Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers in 1960 to take home the NFL Championship.

He racked up 13 receiving touchdowns in that season but fell short of the 1,000-yard threshold by finishing the campaign with 801 receiving yards. In 1961, he put on his hard hat and went to work again, this time tallying 1,144 receiving yards with 13 touchdowns.

One of the highlights of that season came when the future Hall of Famer franchise single-game record for receiving yards with a seven-reception, 237-yard day. He also scored two touchdowns. Unfortunately, the game ended with a 28-24 loss versus the New York Giants.

Mike Quick: 1983

One of the best wide receivers in Eagles history makes the list again, as Mike Quick collected 1,409 receiving yards with 13 touchdowns during the 1983 season.

He led the NFL in receiving yards that year (1,409). That mark would remain as the franchise record until A.J. Brown broke the record 40 years later.

Quick enjoyed six games in 1983 in which he eclipsed 100 yards receiving. One of the best games for the future Birds broadcaster came during a six-reception, 152-yard performance versus the Denver Broncos.

Sadly, the five-time pro-bowler’s solid season was wasted as Philadelphia only won five games that year.
