What is the most unbreakable record in sports?

Recommended Posts

Guarantee's = No Pitcher will ever win more than 511 games like Cy Young did. Nobody will score more than 100 Points in an NBA game like Wilt did. Nobody will throw more than 55 TD's like Peyton did in one season.

I think any record involving offense or simply playing is breakable because sports are progressively favoring scoring and player safety.

 

So consecutive starts (Favre, Ripken), consecutive games with scores/hits (Jordan/DiMaggio), career points (Gretzky/Abdul-Jabbar), career stats (Rice/Emmitt), and career wins will all be in danger in the future.

 

I think defensive records will be increasingly more difficult to break.  Dick "Night Train" Lane intercepting 14 passes in 12 games will probably never be broken.  It's been over a decade since a player had double-digit INTs and that's with 16 games in a season and a more pass-happy NFL now, too.  :woah:

Most fumble recoveries returned to the wrong end zone in one game = 1

It'll never be broken.

Thats actually where I was leaning.. Emmitt's will never be broken becuase RB's only get like 7 years to play.. and all the sub packages where if you aren't a 3 down back you can forget about it.

Just for fun, I'll provide one for each league

MLB: DiMaggio's 56 consecutive games with a hit

NBA: Bill Russell's 11 championships

NFL: there are a lot to go with here.  Don Shula's 347 victories, Emmitt Smith's career rushing yards, Favre's nearly 300 consecutive starts, and pretty much any Jerry Rice stat all come to mind.

NHL: Gretzky's 2800+ career points...among nearly anything else Gretz did

Second year player, first year starter just got to 50. 55 TD passes is certainly not among the most unbreakable records in sports. Players have gotten close to that and the record itself is just 6 r old.

 

It's not even the most unbreakable Peyton Manning record. 23 consecutive regular season wins or 7 straight seasons of 12+ wins are going to be harder to break. Or 13 consecutive seasons with at least 25 TDs (Brady is at 10 right now).

this is a good one that probably wont jump to mind for most people right away.  its already stood for a looong time too, and no one has been close lately like you said

 

modern offensive coaching probably wont allow it unless several weird flukes happen in the same season

Gretzky has lot of unbreakable Records. 8 consecutive MPS, highest +/- in a season(+100), largest margin of victory in a scoring race(+79), most 100+ point seasons(15) or 11 100+ assist seasons (rest of NHL has total of 2 those)..

 

Back in 1980, Eri Heiden won Olympic gold at speed skating.. at every individual event. 500, 1000, 1500, 5000 and 10000 meters.

50 is far from 56 on average per game IMO, MaHomes had a career year and will never throw for 50 again IMO. Only other QB to throw for 50 is Tom and it was 50 back in 2007.

What about Brett Favre's iron man record? With as many QBs missing games nowadays, it is hard for me to fathom that being broken.

It's about 0.375 TDs per game more. Not that much. Mahomes had just 163 drives in the regular season (ex. kneel downs at the end of halfs) bc of KCs porous defense. Peyton had 29 more in 2013. KC offense last year scored more points per drive (3.25 vs 2.98) and TDs per drive (0.405 vs 0.370) than DEN in '13. While it's possible he peaked on his 1st year starting, I consider that unlikely and their D won't likely be as bad in future years allowing for more offensive drives and thus chances to score. Trevor Lawrence could also going to be a big factor in breaking that record in few years.

 

Other QBs have gotten close to PMs record and it's relatively new. That's why I don't think it should belong in same company as some other records which are a lot older and no one has gotten even close to them. Marino had the single season TD record 35 yrs ago and with larger margin to the next guy and it ended up being smashed, though it took a lot of time.

 

Peytons single season TD record is extremely impressive since he could pretty much throw only ducks at that point.

Wilt Chamberlain averaged 50.4 points per game in 1962.

 

But the unbreakable record is: In that year he averaged playing 48.5 minutes a night over 80 games.

Regulation games are only 48 minutes.

 

THAT record will NEVER, EVER be broken.

I'm not sure any record is unbreakable because every record broken was thought to be unbreakable.

Rock..nobody's ever going to average 48 1/2 minutes over an entire season.

What that means is: Wilt played every regular minute of the season and all the overtimes.

 

That's an unbreakable record

I join the others in saying that the 55 TD's can and probably will be broken.   Mostly because the league is more and more offensive minded.   9 QB's broke the 30 TD mark.   A rookie got 50.  It's a pass happy league now.   While it may stand for several years, it wouldn't be surprising to see it tied or broken.   Heck, if the Colts get a couple WR's who can catch, Luck may come close next season.

Agreed 100% that Cy Young's win record won't touched. Ever. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if one day Wilt's 100 point game is eclipsed. No easy task but it's possible.

 

Peyton's TD record is another story. With the way today's game is played and all of the rule changes over the years, this record is bound to fall sooner than later IMO.

For whatever reason, this record is the one I hope is broken. Although unlikely, it would be very exciting to follow. The way the game is played now with all of the relief pitching specialist and defensive shifts, this record is getting more and more difficult to imagine being broken. I also think we may never see another .400 hitter in the major leagues for the same reasons.

    • That’s on paper, a very solid group of receivers. What we are certain of right now is that TY, Funchess, Cain and probably Rogers makes the opening day roster. Hopefully Cain has put forth the film study and NFL style conditioning while he has been off for injury and he comes out for training camp to shake off the rust. Those last 3 guys are basically the same receiver imho and maybe there is room for 1 of those and a draft pick if we go wr with one of those 4 initial picks. If we pick a wr after the 3rd round, then they just compete it out with the bottom 3 and we move on with our PS build. Injuries may also dictate who stays and goes but I’d guess 6 wr’s make the squad and I really liked what Johnson flashed us in his short audition. Pascal has done a few nice things while here as well and of course Fountain was a 2018 draft pick with high hopes but did get cut and sent to the PS until late in the season and dropped his only attempt in the endzone while being virtually wide open. Hopefully we get one of all these receivers not named TY to break out this preseason to make cuts easier. 
    • Not much love on the Panthers message boards about Funch. It's kinda like our board when Moncrief left for Jacksonville.    
    • There are some obvious bad calls that I think most football fans can look at and realize that was a bad call.  Some of them in the past have been due to the rules being poorly written.  Honestly the competition committee's poor writing to the rules has caused far more problems in the past than the refs.     However the PI wasn't one of them.  That was a simple bad no call by the officials.     That said I think those are the exception to the rule.  If calls that bad were every day things, we wouldn't be talking about it.  
    • Would love to have Ferrell and Houston at the same time along with everyone else we have.
