RE: Who is the best quarterback in the history of the NFL?

By “keeping up” you are of course referring to his 12-4 season and yet another playoff appearance. He has passed for 16,000 (that’s THOUSAND) more yards than Brady, and a higher QB rating. Oh, and then there are the records…. including: 

  • Most Career Touchdown Passes: 530
  • Most touchdown passes, season: 55 (2013)

  • One of only seven QBs with at least 7 touchdown passes, game (tied with Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk, George Blanda, Y.A. Tittle, Joe Kapp and Nick Foles) – and BRADY isn’t in that list.
  • One of only three QBs with at least 7 touchdown passes and no interceptions, game (tied with Y.A. Tittle and Nick Foles)
  • Most regular season games with at least 300 passing yards: 84
