Which Broncos QB records will fall?
I was bored at work today at was just thinking about Bronco football as I always seem to do. I started to look at some stats from this year and it got me to thinking which Bronco franchise records Manning could possibly break this year?
After a little research it is in my opinion that he could break them all!
Here is a little breakdown of some of our records, along with Elway's best season (just because I can)
Broncos team record
Quarterback Rating:.....92.8 Elway in '93
Passing Yards:.....4526 Cutler in '08
Passing TD's:.....27 Elway in '97, Plummer in '04
Completion %:.....66.7% Griese in '02 (only 13 games)
63.6% Cutler in '07 (all 16 games)
Total Completions:.....384 Cutler in '08
Total Attempts:.....616 Cutler in '08
Quarterback Rating:.....92.8 '93
Passing Yards:.....4030 '93
Passing TD's:.....27 '97
Completion %:.....63.2% '93
Total Completions:.....348 '93
Total Attempts:.....605 '85
Manning is having a great year by a lot of peoples standards, but even I was suprised when looking at his projections for the rest of the year.
Manning's Projected 2012 stats
So if Manning continues on with how he is doing he will break and shatter pretty much every season record for the Broncos. I know the NFL is a completely different game then in the 80's and 90's. So I was just wondering what all your thoughts on Manning potentially setting new standards for quarterbacking in Denver.
