Tom Brady could be set for first ever 5,500 passing yard season

Published 1 Comments

This season was always going to be 'the New England Patriots revenge tour'.

When Roger Goodell and the National Football League tried to ban Tom Brady for the opening four games of the season, with the ban then being overturned, the Patriots and their star quarterback found something to unite behind and a reason to fire back at Goodell and co.

The Patriots have attacked opponents ever since the the first play of the first quarter, and because of their electrifying offense, Brady could be on to make history.

Brady has 1,387 yards in four games, an average of 346.8 yards a game that puts him on pace for 5,548 yards this season.

If Brady keeps his current pace up, he’ll have the first 5,500-yard season in NFL history.

For years, the record for passing yards in a season belonged to Dan Marino, who threw for 5,084 yards in 1984. The 5,000-yard season at that time was a huge accomplishment, and Marino’s record stood for 27 years.

But now there have been eight 5,000-yard seasons, and the number doesn’t seem as special. The current record belongs to Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who passed for 5,477 yards in 2013.

If Brady does break the record - and holds it for a while - then there is no way that he is anything less than a first-ballot Hall of Famer. It also means that anyone with a Patriots offensive player in their fantasy team is loving life right now.
