  • NFL All-Time Passing Records

    With Peyton Manning approaching some of the NFL's All-Time Passing Records, I thought it would be fun to start a thread tracking Peyton's chase for these records, as well as to see how close fellow future Hall of Fame QBs Tom Brady and Drew Brees are from setting the records themselves.

      Yep. I think pass attempts will be the only one he won't achieve in 2 more seasons, assuming he's back next year.

        Question. Do those stats include post-season? Or just regular season?

          Wins per season is easily the most important stat and Brady is #1, Montana is #2 and Peyton is #3.

          Peyton's 11 playoff loses is why so many dont rank him as the greatest of all time.

            Doesn't matter all nfl records for passing currently being set will all be broken. With rule changes the basis of comparing stats is moot.

              This is true. Any QB who played the majority of their career after the year 2000 should have their stats taken with a grain of salt If they played in another generation their stats would probably be cut by as much as a 1/3 or more.

                  Brady's 8-8 in the playoffs since 06.

                        Peyton can pretty much pass all but one of those records (pass attempts would take three seasons) if he plays for two more seasons.

                        Peyton signed a 5 year deal with Denver and has said that he'd like to play for the length of the contract.

                        In my opinion, Peyton will play 3 more seasons....I've always said Peyton loves the game so much that they'll have to take him off the field kicking and screaming.

                        I'd love to see Peyton play 3 more season, it's a joy watching him QB my team.

                        I'm fully aware and appreciate the fact that one of the few best QBs of all-time plays in Denver right now and am trying to enjoy every week of his seasons in Denver.

                        Denver and Denver fans were lucky to have John Elway for 16 seasons and are lucky again to have Peyton Manning in Denver for as many seasons as he'll play for Denver.

                        Most teams/fans have not been fortunate enough to have the experience of watching a Top 5 QB sling the rock for their team....and us Donk fans have been able to watch 2 legitimate Top 5 QBs sling the rock for our team.

                        I was thinking what other teams have had 2 Top 5 all-time QBs play for them other that Denver with Elway/Manning?

                        The Colts were lucky enough to have had Johnny Unitas/Peyton Manning, but that was in two different cities in Baltimore and Indianapolis....but as a franchise, they've had 2 Top 5 QBs playing for them.

                        The Packers have had Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers, but while Aaron Rodgers is a stud and potential Hall of Fame QB, he isn't a Top 5 all-time QB.

                        The 49ers had Joe Montana and Steve Young. Joe Montana is a Top 5 QB. Steve Young is a Hall of Fame QB, but a Top 15 to 20 all-time QB, not a Top 5 QB.

                        Enjoy the next two or three seasons that Peyton Manning plays in Denver. Savor every week, as it's rare to have a QB like John Elway or Peyton Manning slinging the rock for your team. Fans need to realize this and savor the moment while it's happening.

                            I'll be updating the first post in the thread at the end of every week during the regular season, so the stats will always be up to date and current.

                            I'll also post a little write up at the end of every week, chronicling and mentioning anytime a player moves up the rankings or is withing range of reaching a milestone.

                            I'll also expand my write ups to include other statistical milestones within reach of other players besides the QBs.

                            I've always been a stat slut since I was a little kid and was obsessed with baseball and football stats. I'd read and memorize the stats of players from the back of my baseball and football cards. I loved the 1,000 yard club cards. I remember being a little kid and being obsessed with Denver players getting 1,000 yards rushing or receiving.

                              Well when discussing 'greatest of all time', which is what I was doing, it's usually pertinent to consider a players entire career.

                              If you want to argue if they cheated -thats fine, but if we're going only by stats then you should consider his 3 SB wins and 5 AFC Championships.
