This, the passing yards and passing TD's meant a lot more before the NFL turned into arena ball. Marino's 48 in 84 is much more impressive because DB's could maul guys back then and play pretty physical. Honestly, don't really care that he broke both. I'm sure both will be broken down the road. Probably soon. Just like a lot of the records today with more offense. I mean 100 yards rushing or receiving in a game was amazing and so was 300 passing. Now seems like 300 is no big deal and neither is 100. Same with 1000 yard rushing and receiving seasons. It's something now but meant more back then. Back to Manning though it won't mean anything unless they win the SB. They brought him in for that, he has had 2 great seasons but won't mean much without a SB. Heck, he's still waiting for playoff win 1 with them. Just like in Indy like 7 seasons with like 12 or more wins or whatever it was. All those great years and only 2 SB's and 1 win.
To be fair, if his safety doesn't go full potato and blow an easy pick, they probably win that game against Baltimore and likely head to the Super Bowl last year.
Give Peyton a defense and he will win it all. Too bad for him he never has one. If he was here putting up those numbers with our defense, we'd probably go undefeated.
