    Norm Van Brocklinís Record of 554 yards...

    Is going down this year.Its crazy to believe that record has stood since 1951!!! The way the NFL is now I think its taylor made to be broken.Obviously Mahomes can do it if the chiefs are in a close high scoring game Hes going to keep slinging it.

    Also there are a few other ones that can do it as well..


    Actually if someone wants to book this for points and the price is right I would be happy to bet it.😁🏦

    I think it's a pretty safe record

    Game today uses short pass as run, clock keeps going

    Brocklin heyday was deep TDs over the safeties, a type of big play you just don't see much anymore, never twice in one game

    Throwing for 554 in 1951 is like throwing for 650-700 today. Bobby Layne was the season leader that year with just over 2,400 yards. One of the craziest records of all-time!

    I remember when Vince Ferragamo almost broke it vs the Bears back in the 80's. I'm surprised it has lasted this long also.

    Nobody even close to him

    Goff almost broke the all time record for most pass attempts in a single game.
    Goff wound up 45-68 517 yards
    68 pass attempts is 3rd now on the all time list behind Drew Bledsoe (70) and Testaverde (69)

    45 pass completions ties an NFL record.

    Mahomes with 116 yards in four minutes! As long as the texans stay with em we could see it go down today.

    I think if anyone breaks the record it will definitely be a Bears QB.

    Well I might have been off by a year but if the bucs start scoring Mahomes might get it today! Wouldnt it be something to see Flippers/Johnsons record go down as well as Owens 20 catches all in the same game as well??

    Two Mahomes questions. At the end of the 2029 season:

    1) How many Super Bowls does he have?
    2) How many MVPs does he have?

    Is there any scenario where he just runs em off? I mean 4/5 seasons in a row where he wins Reg Sea MVP and then leads Chiefs to the Bowl.

    Gave it a run. Just needed the yds at the end.

    How good is Mahomes?

    Will Chefs win 90% of their next 50 games? They could.

    I can't believe that this record hasn't already been broken. We have had quite a few dudes over the years toss 500, and nowadays you would think the stars would be in alignment more times for a chance to break than ever.
    All we really need is a dude who starts hot but in the first quarter the team can't score touchdowns. Sort of like yesterday when Rottenburger couldn't get a touchdown after rolling down the field very quickly. Then since team A can't score, team B would inversely have a real easy time of scoring touchdowns. Something like a pick 6 or a scope and score defensive stand. Or maybe they get a couple of cheapy touchdowns in some weird way it doesn't matter as long as the scores come fast.

    If that scenario happens, and team A finds themselves down say 21-3, 21-10 or something like that after 1 quarter. I can see the throwing of 600 plus yards.

    Its gonna happen eventually. As a matter of betting I say that happens before we have another running back running for over 2000 yards.

    Problem now is if a QB throws for 400 yards in a half they are up be 3 TD's so they run the ball 2nd half. Hard to break a record when you don't throw for 30 minutes.

    very few qb's can throw that many yards right now top of my head Rodgers and Mahoomes

    and it has to a be a close game too not a blow out 41- 3 qb goes out 2nd half and the rest of back ups come in

    you have soo many poor teams in nfl today that would have trouble with top ranked college teams

    ready set go Jaguars- Texans- WASH- Lions ............ weak lame defenses that cannot cover spreads even at home

    Looks like we just about made it through another season without it being broken.Still
    baffles my mind that no one in over 70
    years with the 100 of great qbs better than that old fart have never done it.

    This is the first time I've seen this thread and I'll bet you any amount of points you want that it won't go down next year. Any QB with 450-500 yards is probably going to be way ahead and in run the clock mode, it could go down but it's highly unlikely.

    Prob so Horse but to not have one qb do it since 1951 with all the rules changed geared to offense and protecting Qbs is astounding..

    You're a Dolphins fan?

    Count how many picks bypassed Achane. Achane is a flyer similar to Hill.

    I said this about the Dolphins. It's really about staying healthy. B/c the talent is a given.
