Since 1958, …
… there has been a total of 912 players who have attempted a pass, successfully or not. 15 of those made their first attempt this year
… there has been a total of 2,268 players who made a rushing play, planned or not. 34 of those made their first carry this year
… there has been a total of 2,809 players who have attempted to catch a pass, successfully or not. 57 of those made their first attempt this year

For the purpose of this exercise, “Active? means having played at least one down this year in the mentioned category, regardless if the player finished the year or not (retirement, injury, dismissal)
All stats are cut-and-pasted from this CFL site (2004 to present) and another website devoted to various sports stats (1958-2003), so accuracy may be a tad off, but should be close enough for purpose of the exercise.

Thanks Rattler, these are great stats that I never see anywhere else. It’s interesting to see how quickly someone can jump up in the rankings when they are further down amongst the pack.
