  • Possible Manning Season Records

    Peyton Manning has the opportunity to set the all time season passing and Touchdown records this season. With 4 games to go he needs:

    --338 yards passing per game to break Brees' record of 5,476

    --10 Touchdowns to pass Brady's mark of 50

    Will he get these records?

    Poll to follow.

    Considering the teams we are playing...yeah, he will probably break both. But a lot will depend on what NE does. If they keep winning, then we need to keep the hammer down. If they lose a couple, Manning might not play week 17.

      Weather will play an impact.

        The two Denver games could conceivably be mild, and the two road games are in warm weather locales -- Houston and Chokeland.

          This being said, I hope it is frigid and freezing for these two games; get Peyton more acclimated to playing in cold temps for the playoffs.

            Just looking at the average temperatures:

            Jan 12 in Denver -- Avg High 45, Avg Low - 16, Mean - 31

            Jan 19 in Denver -- Avg High 45, w - Avg Low - 15, Mean - 30

            Feb 2 in new York -- Avg High - 48, Avg Low - 37, Mean - 42

                We'll have to keep pace with New England which means we need to win out until the Patriots drop one. That will mean at least 27 points a game if you are being conservative and thinking we score our low on the year each game. That's almost four TD's a game. So let's round it to four. If you figure some of those will be runs, at least 25%, that means about three, sometimes two. We need two games of 2 passing TD's and two games of three passing TD's - again going off conservative estimates. We can do it. The yardage should come regardless.


                Now if the Patriots drop a game and we win game three, you may see Manning play one drive and then sit for the last game, which would impact his total. But right now based on the low for our points scored, it's doable.

                  I think the TD mark is very likely. The yardage mark seems less so. Though if he maintains his current pace for the season he will break both. To be exact he projects to:

                  54-55 TDs (54.67)
                  5500 yards

                  So yeah...

                    I don't care if he breaks any, as long as he wins the Superbowl I'll be happy as a hog covered in shyt

                      The only record I hope he breaks is being the first starting QB to ever win a SB with two different teams...

                        Guess it depends how often New England loses. Denver might not have much to play for the last week, or even 2 of the year. Cold weather in the next two games for Denver, probably effects Peyton's numbers some what as well.

                        Honestly, don't think he breaks either of them.

                          Will he tie Jim McMahon's record of 12 straight division wins?

                            Vince young overachieved in 08' and the titans won the south, so he'd be playing in his mid 40's for that record.

                              I think key word is "wins".


                              Of course he breaks both records!
