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.

Celtics won 8 straight Championships from 1959-1966. That will never happen again in the NBA.

 

I am pretty confident that nobody will score 100 in a game like Wilt did either.

 

Emmitt Smith's rushing yard record of 18,355 will never be broken. Most teams do RB by committee now days and there isn't anybody that is durable as he was playing 15 seasons. 

 

Nobody will beat CY Young's win total of 511 as I posted above.

 

You guys have a point about Peyton's passing TD record of 55 in 1 season, that may be broken but I will believe it when I see it. Mahomes will not come close to 50 this upcoming season. I see him around 40 like Luck. I will say this nobody will win more than 5 League MVP's like Peyton did. That will not be broken.

Ah. Sad to say but I’m actually not surprised.  Anyone with large amounts of cash can nearly buy whatever they want. Even college admission apparently...

Yeah with today's NCAA rules some of  those championships would be vacated.

Follow me here...the Pacers 3 ABA Championships will never be broken :)

 

I agree on the Cy Young win total and Dimaggio's hit streak is pretty safe, but not unbreakable...someday, someone will break it.

 

Chamberlain's 48.5 minutes per game average is also very safe and will not be broken.

With the new NFL, Emmit Smith should feel safe with his rushing record.   Although I always felt like it he shouldn't brag about it.   Sanders would have it easily if the Lions were not so poorly run.

Personally I rank Sanders and Payton ahead of Smith. 

Neither one of them had near the talented blockers that Smith had.

    • Sadly, knowing only what we know now  ... we have JB, the Bengals will likely have Burrow, Lions will have Stafford back .... I wouldn't feel confident about any of those games. 
    • If the odds are stated to be 19% if we win out , why would that increase if we beat the Saints ? Other words , if we win out .. it's a 19% chance. It doesn't "increase" if we win Monday.
    • That may be true to an extent ... but if he skips on a QB that's available at one of our top couple picks and instead roles with JB and some mid-round QB and the Colts are mediocre again while the skipped QB goes onto be Very Good or Elite his legacy is cemented.  The only way his legacy/reputation recovers from that is if he finds an equally good QB the next draft or JB leads us to a SB (just typing the second option made me ).
    • I see some posts in this thread that would make it seem that way... I am definitely not, just want to point that out, haha! I even said in my first post on here that I could care less about the Pats fans. But I was agreeing with @King Colt ‘s OP that it did come off as rude when the fans booed, given that  team has given NE so many championships. I feel “meh” about the calls that didn’t go their way, don’t really care if this is the beginning of their downward spiral. I just didn’t expect the fans to boo and when they did my initial reaction was, wow, after all those championships? That’s rude. Not that they are the worst in the world, but definitely hypocritical if those same fans were criticizing those that booed Luck.    However, I also said I understood why they were booing, out of shock of seeing that home game winning streak disappear... same as I understood why the fans booed out of shock of hearing about Luck’s retirement. But sympathy for the Pats? Or their fans? Nah... never! 
    • You are jumping to inaccurate conclusions.  The the options in the poll were worded badly and some options were left out which skewed the results.  It could easily be interpreted as people think JB is average - below average but there aren't many better options so we are stuck with him until we are able to draft his replacement or something unlikely/crazy happens and a good QB actually hits FA.       Cut him and keep looking.  I would rather be terrible a couple years and be in position to go after top QBs until we find one, than finish 8-8 (give or take a game) and be stuck at mediocre.      See above ... at least we know and can move on and aren't stuck in mediocrity... and if they play that bad than we likely have a shot at Lawrence. I would be fine with a one win season if it meant we got Lawrence in 2021.
