When did Triple Crown in the NFL become a thing?

I’ve been watching football for decades and I can’t recall hearing this term even once. So why is it being spoken by commentators around the league so often in the last few weeks?

I suppose it’s because the accomplishment is very rare. Only 4 players have achieved it, and the most recent (besides receiver Cooper Kupp this year) was in 2005. Here is an article explaining more.

Even still, I don’t recall hearing it in 2005, but maybe they decided to push it this year to draw more fans. I don’t know.

Do you recall this term being used in the NFL? Any idea why they mention it every chance they get in the 2022 playoffs?

Thanks for dropping in…
