Three Colt QBs in Top 10 Passing Seasons Of All Time

Recommended Posts

I just watched the updated version of the Top 10 Passing Seasons of all time.  They changed the top a few times.  But isn't it such a luxury as Colts fans we have

 

#6 Bert Jones 1976

#3 Peyton Manning 2004

#2 John Unitas 1959

 

Now, once Luck comes up a season on there, we will have complete domination :)

 

It is so nice to have had so many great QBs .

Wow!  I am impressed.  I have a football signed by Unitas and Manning.  If I meet Luck someday I will have him sign it.

I am actually glad they adjusted this show a bit.  When they first did the show, Manning's 2004 season was #1.  Than when Brady threw 50 TDs, his became #1 on the show. But I am glad they don't just look at a passing season by how many touchdowns someone threw, because it doesn't account for games played and the defenses they played against.  I do think they have it right.   I can't argue with Marino's 1984 season because was head and shoulders above what anyone else was doing at that time.  I am glad they put Manning in front of Brady because Manning had a higher QB rating and could easily thrown 55 TDs had they played like the Patriots did.  So overall, I like the list.  Not sure about Culpepper in there.

Not to mention Manning pulled the throttle back in some of his games while Brady and the Patriots ran up the scores. Peyton could have had a few more TD`s  if the Colts did things that way

I'm glad to see Unitas recognized..In those days, you could basically hold the WRs and you could (and were encouraged to) hit the QB in the knee or in the face,,,to slow him up

 

Even Peyton would bow down to Johnny U....

 

As defending league MVP (Colts won in '38, too) JU had 32 Tds in 12 games in 1959....and he led his side to 24 fourth quarter points in the title game (pre-Super Bowl era) win over the NYGs..

 

When you consider the era, Johnny Unitas is still the No. 1 QB all-time

I didn't even realize Unitas's season in 1959 was so good. This was accomplished when the defenses could still mug you, and it was still a running era. I think the 1959 Championship season sometimes gets overshadowed by the historic 1958 season and Championship win. 1959 ended with a nice 31-16 victory over the NY Giants in Meorial Stadium.

Johnny Unitas, Bert Jones and Peyton Manning. Wow, so them all play and they created a lot of memories and great moments in NFL history.

 

Unitaswestand, is that Tony Lorrick or Eddie Hinton on your icon pic?

    • I don't buy into this notion we'd have to change our offense to make Hurts run. On the contrary I think it would be a great style for his development and he'd add a diminsion we haven't had. I don't understand why people harp on Hurts as a passer. He's fine and has shown improvement. He has had around a 70 percent competition percentage the last two years and doesn't throw too many interceptions. Last year was the only year Lamar Jackson had over 60% completion percentage including college (yes really). I think Hurts won't be as athletics, yes, but he's shaping up to be a better passer imo. I, for the record, wouldn't want him at 34 since I think we'd basically be passing on a likely first round talent for a guy who definitely has some concerns. But I just think people are jumping to too big of a conclusion to limit him to a Lamar Jackson type usage. He can throw the ball pretty well even if his throwing talent doesn't look promising to ever being anything special. What I'd be most concerned with for his development would be adjusting  to NFL speed, reading defenses, and his level of anticipation. 3red round would be ideal, but I won't whine if we get him at 44, trade down for him, or trade up from our 3rd to get him. 
    • The Seahawks select John Simpson, OG Clemson. This concludes the 2nd round
    • I heard too that Haskins wasn't able to understand the playbook as well. Double pass on this. Move on and get a QB in the draft, like maybe Eason.
    • I am not sold on he could take us to a SB but he is still young and above average to good so with him we would consistently win 10 games every year IMO. With Ballard at GM keeping our team good in other area's and Kirk at QB we would 10 games every year, maybe a SB if we had a dominant D.
    • Right! This forum reminds me of the old high school football locker room! Never stated we would actually pull the trigger on a trade for him, but he is easily worth a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
