Manning Breaks most pass yards in a Season

Peyton Manning broke another record today.
It only took one half of today's game against Oakland for Peyton Manning to break Drew Brees 2011 record for most past yards in a season. Brees passed for 5476 yards. Manning entered the game with 5211 yards and only needed 266 additional yards to break the record. In the first half, he exactly passed for 266 yards taking his season passing total to 5477 yards, one more than Drew Brees.

What a season, what a coach in Denver. In Indianapolis Manning would have sat resting and protecting him for the playoffs. John Fox is taking the Bill Belichick route and is going for history.
And in the second half Manning sits and Brock Osweiler takes over as QB. Manning holds the record with a margin of one yard unless the NFL recalculates his game yardage.
Go back into exile
Meh. Passing records don't mean much anymore.
So? NFL changes all the rules to favor the offense every single year for 20 years in a row. And surprise, surprise. Offenses score more points, get more TD's, pass for more yards than ever before. Shocking.....

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.

Well to be fair, they did repeal the stupid push out rule, that made defending the pass easier. That convinced me they aren't completely about turning the NFL into the arena league. But something needs to be done about these awful calls refs are making on legal hits, they make me want to vomit directly into their mouths when they make the b******t calls they do.
Don't curr
montana 4-0 in SBs>>>>>>>any other record.
Greatest regular season qb ever.

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.
