I originally put this in this secret, unknown section of Pats Fans but after reading the 'Surprising Fact' threads I figured I'd re-post them here in the main forum. (Mods, feel free to merge if you think it belongs in one of those threads instead.) 2010 Patriot Team Franchise Milestones PASSING Tom Brady holds nearly every Patriot passing record, but there is one more that can be added to the list this year. Brady (4218) is exactly 300 pass attempts behind Drew Bledsoe's career record. That's less than 20 attempts per game, so Brady should be able to easily pass Bledsoe for that mark. RUSHING Attempts Kevin Faulk ranks 6th with 839 rushing attempts. He needs 52 to catch John Stephens (5th, 891) and 119 to catch Curtis Martin (4th, 958). Sam Cunningham tops the list with 1385. Laurence Maroney is 14th with 582. About 9 attempts per game will move him in to the top ten, ahead of Craig James (585), Mosi Tatupu (612), Leonard Russell (689), and Antowain Smith (721). If Maroney gets about 15 carries a game he could also pass Corey Dillon (753), Larry Garron (759), and Don Calhoun (820), which would put him in 7th place all time. Sammy Morris is 22nd with 314 carries. About 8 carries a game would move him past Horace Ivory (329), Mack Herron (353), Bob Perryman (369), Ron Burton (429) and Steve Grogan (445) for 17th place. Morris would need about 11 carries per game to catch #16 Andy Johnson (491) and 14 per game to catch #15 Carl Garrett (537). RUSHING Yards Faulk is 5th with 3505 yards, just 294 behind Curtis Martin, but he won't be able to catch Tony Collins (4647) for third place this year. Cunningham is the all time leader in this category as well with 5453 yards. Maroney starts the year in 13th place with 2430 yards. An 820 yard season would move him up to 7th, past Russell (2437), James (2469), Smith (2781), Garron (2981), Dillon (3180), and Stephens (3249). Maroney needs 961 yards to match Calhoun's 6th place total of 3391 yards rushing. Morris is 19th with 1430 yards, and should be able to pass Ron Burton (1536) early in the season. He's 587 behind Andy Johnson, 746 behind Steve Grogan, and 805 behind #15 Carl Garrett's 2235 yards. RUSHING Touchdowns Maroney ranks 8th with 21, slightly less than half of Jim Nance's club record of 45 rushing touchdowns. That's just two less than Don Calhoun's total, but eleven behind Curtis Martin and Tony Collins, who are tied for 5th with 32. Kevin Faulk is 12th with 16, just one behind John Stephens and two behind Mosi Tatupu. Morris is 19th with 12 rushing touchdowns but can jump up to 13th with three TD or 12th with four, passing Leonard Russell and Andy Johnson (13 each), Larry Garron, Horace Ivory, and Babe Parilli (14 each) and Carl Garrett (15). RECEIVING Receptions Kevin Faulk ranks 4th with 418 receptions. It's doubtful he would move up from that rank this year as he would need to catch 72 passes to match Ben Coates' total of 490. Troy Brown is the franchise leader with 557. Wes Welker ranks 6th with 346 receptions, just 17 behind Irving Fryar; he could pass Coates before Faulk does if his rehab goes well. Randy Moss has 250 receptions, 11th on the Pats all time list. An 80 catch season would put him ahead of Terry Glenn (329), as well as Gino Cappelletti (292), Jim Colclough (283), and Tony Collins (261). RECEIVING Yards Randy Moss (3765 yards), Wes Welker (3688) and Kevin Faulk (3605) rank 8-9-10 in Pats history, but you would need to combine all three of their totals together to surpass club leader Stanley Morgan's total of 10,352 yards. Moss and Welker could pass Cappelletti (#7, 4589) and Glenn (#6, 4669) with 1000-yard seasons; with a 1236 yard season Moss would move up to the #5 spot (Colclough, 5001). RECEIVING Touchdowns Randy Moss begins the season with 47 receiving touchdowns, which is third in Pats history. He needs three more to match Ben Coates total of 50, and a 20-TD season to equal Stanley Morgan's franchise record of 67. KICKING Stephen Gostkowski has 121 field goal attempts, 5th in team history and just four fewer than Tony Franklin's total; Gino Cappelletti's club record of is safe for a long time unless the Pats re-sign Adam Vinatieri. Gostkowski ranks 4th in field goals made with 103, he needs 25 more to move into third place with John Smith. SCORING Randy Moss ranks 4th with 47 total touchdowns. That's 2 behind Sam Cunningham's 49, three behind Ben Coates' 50, and 21 behind Stanley Morgan's 68 (Morgan had one punt return for a TD.) Moss is 4th in points scored with 284. Ahead of him are Cunningham (294), Coates (302) and Morgan (408).
