Default 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

Elway's best's

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

Quarterback Rating:.....101.0
Passing Yards:.....4797
Passing TD's:.....35
Completion %:.....66%
Total Completions:.....416
Total Attempts:.....630

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.

(apologize for any formatting mistakes, doing this on my phone and its a lot harder then I thought)
