'Mr. 500'

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to remember the details... Favre got a high-low hit... came out for a play or two, right?

Was that the game he ended with that God-awful, thrown across his body, on the run INT when he could have run for the first down and a FG attempt?

Yup the Vikings should have won and the Colts would have 2 superbowls.

Yeah but Brett played 10 years in an era where you could be physical with wr's....very physical I might add.....Peyton played 4....'98-'02....Favre '92(his first start came that year) to 2002....That certainly don't take away anything either has done but its not a fair comparison

Yeah but Favre never even got close to having a kind of year that Peyton had last year, or even the year Peyton had in 2004. The most TDs Peyton has ever had in a single season is 55, Favre 39. The most yards Peyton has had in a single season 5477, Favre 4413. I don't think a tad extra emphasis on Defensive pass interference makes up for that big a difference. Peyton is about to close in on 500 TD passes 3 years younger than when Favre did.

Forget defensive pass interference...what about stat inflation? Comparing 1996 stats to 2013 stats is just absurd. Favre won the SB that year btw. I can't stress enough that Peyton deserves to get to 500, will get to 500, would have gotten to 500 without the breaks etc etc etc but do people think Brett freaking Favre wouldn't throw 50+ TDs in today's game?

What about the schedule? Favre's 5 team division usually had a 7-9 5th place team to go along with the Cowboys and 49ers regular season games every year in addition to the playoffs.

What do you think he will end up with?  I think 600 is achievable.  It would be three seasons of 35.

3 a game for the last 14 games would be 42....and 48 next year...

No injuries? He'll pass 600

You make it sound like Favre played in 1880.

He played in this era.

and only oldtimers Brees and Brady are in the neighborhood..

....I dont think anyone in the 'new generation' of QBs is going to approach any of the 3...

//because QBs like to run and get knocked out now...

Matt Ryan is on pace to be in the neighborhood. He has great targets and they play indoors on turf. He has to stay healthy though

No. Its not just stay healthy..he has to play past 40..2 different things

..he has to very, very good to still be starting at that point..healthy or not...few are

Like Manning and Brady are..

Ryan's not that guy, I do not belive..He'll be replaced long before he's 40, in my opinion

He is very good.

But to be starting and tossing 40 TDs a season when he's in his late 30s, he has to have big season AND win every years like Brady

and Manning do..

....I cant predict the distant future but since he's had a losing season..in his prime....I would guess there will come a time in

his 30s when it may happen again. Wghen his recivbers left with injuries..he couldn't win with backups something manninga nd Brady have done repeatedly. I dont think he has the touch of Manning and Brady. Just my opinion.

But even if he wins Super Bowls like Big Ben or Eli..

An over 30 QB with a losing season..they start calling for him to be replaced like they have for Ben and Eli..

..that's something that never happens to Manning and Brady (except on message boards like this)

In short...Last season in Atlanta is why I dont think Ryan will be starting when he's 37 like Tom Brady or 38 like Peyton.

Last season in Atlanta is actually 1 reason why I think he will be starting. He was the 1 guy who didn't get hurt and he kept that team playing hard unlike the other teams who went through hard times. People forget (or refuse to talk about) how even Peyton Manning's Colts had a bad year there in the middle (2001) after he'd long been the instilled quarterback. I predict that Ryan will be a winner like Manning for years to come.

The records? Idk but I do think Peyton's records will fry by many (not all) unworthy guys because of the rules.

    • Dude...   This was THE BEST post I have ever seen from you.  I wish there was a way to use multiple reactions, because I laughed, I cried, I liked, and I thank you for posting this.     Every single sentence was perfect.  ^This^ is the REAL @Jared Cisneros we all know and love!  
    • I don't see him coming back but then again I was sure he wouldn't retire before the 2019 season either. Luck is hard to figure out.
    • I appreciate it Lucky. Nothing wrong with being Dodds, he still has a lot of say and has his voice heard. Decisions can be tough sometimes and it takes someone willing to accept credit and blame for them, especially at an NFL level. Ballard has done that exceptionally, and most of the things he's done deserve a lot of credit, and I'm happy I get a little peek at what the guys do in scouting players every year.    I should give Reich a break though, he's trying to do what's best for the team. I just wish he was more of a risk-taker sometimes. However, I understand with Luck retiring it was tough on everybody. I think this year we can at least compete and with some luck (no pun intended), possibly make or win a SB. Our team has a lot of great talent (starting and depth), and that's something we haven't been able to say since the Polian days!
    • I guess that explains some things.  And I don't mean that as an insult, I just didn't know that about you.  I'm realizing I might have been looking at some of your previous posts over the years in the wrong light.  No judgement.  Sorry if I ever came across as harsh (or a straight-up donkey) in the past.  I just didn't know you as well as I thought I did.    I'll try to be more understanding going forward, even when we disagree about something.   (maybe @coltsfeva feels the same, I don't know.  If I'm not mistaken, there's been some back-and-forth between you two in the past...  I might be thinking of a different member, if so: apologies.  )   I was speaking kinda specifically about Ballard vs Dodds, ie: General Manager vs Assistant General Manager.  If I had a choice, I would choose Assistant General Manager (and not Assistant TO the General Manager for all you Office fans) ev-er-y time.  Being the General Manager is just not my gig.     And hopefully you'll be more understanding going forward of people in Ballards' position where dealing with people is basically the whole premise of their job.  If they didn't draft the guy you wanted or sign the FA you wanted, or even achieve the goals you wanted record-wise, please realize how much else they had to deal with on an inter-personal level that you don't have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.  Because I've been there, and it's beyond stressful trying to get 10-20 people to do their job, much less trying to get 50-100 people to their job better than the the other 50-100 on the other sideline...  
    • Why are you only going by last season?? Of course he was bad last season but he is now 47 years old. In 2006 with us he made 89.3% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. He was also 5-5 in the playoffs at Baltimore and we won the SB. I am taking that kicker over anyone. Using last season as a gauge makes no sense. Vinny also had a few years in NE where he made over 90% of his FG's and 100% of his extra points. Using last year is nonsense.
