The Turtle Man can

Terrence Edwards joked the other day that Milt Stegall should just shut it down for the season since he has no more records to chase.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers slotback owns three significant CFL records -- touchdowns, receiving touchdowns and receiving yards, the latter of which he broke Friday in Toronto.

There are, however, even more records the 38-year-old does not own. Here's a look at a few notable ones, the men in his sights and the chances that Turtle Man will knock them off their pedestals.

RECEPTIONS

1. Terry Vaughn, 1,006

2. Darren Flutie, 972

3. Allen Pitts, 966

4. Don Narcisse, 919

5. Stegall, 840

The skinny: Stegall is one of the greatest deep threats in CFL history; his 17.8-yard average per catch is second only to Edmonton's Brian Kelly (19.4) among the top 18 receiving yardage leaders. Stegall is on pace to haul in 36 catches this season, which would leave him with 861 at year's end.

Would need to play until: 2011

Odds of breaking record:

Last word: Stegall can take solace in the fact he has nearly twice as many receiving touchdowns (143) as Vaughn (73).

GAMES WITH A RECEPTION

1. Ray Elgaard, 217

2. Don Narcisse, 216

3. Darren Flutie, 190

4. Stegall, 188

The skinny: Elgaard played 14 seasons for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and Stegall is in his 14th campaign with the Bombers. The only difference is Stegall has played fewer games thanks to knee problems in 1996 and 2008, an NFL tryout in 1998 and the fact he arrived in Winnipeg halfway through the 1995 season.

Would need to play until: 2010

Odds of breaking record:

Last word: Stegall has catches in 188 of the 192 regular-season games he's played, so he essentially needs to play another 30 games. Not sure if he has that many left in him.

100-YARD GAMES

1. Allen Pitts, 64

2. Stegall, 54

The skinny: Stegall has three career touchdowns that were at least 100 yards long, yet still trails the man he reveres as the top pass catcher in CFL history. Since the start of the 2007 season, Stegall has produced 100-yard outings an average of once every four games.

Would need to play until: 2010, maybe 2009

Odds of breaking record:

Last word: As he showed Friday night, he still can't be caught from behind. There's nothing to suggest he can't rip off several more 100-yard performances.

1,000-YARD SEASONS

1. Terry Vaughn, 11

2. Stegall, 10

The skinny: Vaughn rattled off 11 such seasons in a row, from 1995 to 2005, while Stegall is riding a nine-year streak of 1,000-yard campaigns. It doesn't look like Stegall, who has missed six games, is going to tie Vaughn this season, as he needs 712 yards in his last seven games to reach the magical mark.

Would need to play until: 2010

Odds of breaking record:

Last word: Stegall would likely have to have more surgery on his knee if he's going to rattle off two more 1,000-yarders before he's done.

CONSECUTIVE SEASONS WITH A RECEPTION

1. Garney Henley, 16

T2. Stegall, 14

The skinny: Henley was a two-way star for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats between 1960 and 1975. He didn't rack up big yardage, but he was still hauling in passes at 39 years old. Stegall is tied for second with Hal Patterson, Tommy Grant, Terry Evanshen, Peter Dalla Riva and Ray Elgaard.

Would need to play until: 2011

Odds of breaking record:

Last word: You might say, 'There is no way Stegall will be playing in 2011.' Our answer: 'You probably thought he wouldn't be playing in 2006.'
