Currently he's on track to pass for 5002 yards. Thats only 80 short of Marino's.
Has a chance?
He'll need to average 328.6 yards a game for the rest of the season.
He's averaged 312.6 a game up to this point. 388 being his high and 231 his low.
329 yds/gm (1643 total) with 5 games to go.
Schedule (in no particular order):
If Brady repeated his season high of 388, he would need 313.75/gm over the other 4 games.
So, in another context it means repeating his season high and THEN slightly improving his YPG. Possible, hopefully he'll do it, but I think its unlikely.
Your analysis doesn't consider he'll only get about 200 in the last game.
Exactly which of my points are you arguing against?
That doesn't take into effect that Brady has thrown over 300 yards six times this season and five of them have been over the last six games. And four of those five games, Brady threw for 354 yards or more four of the last six weeks. His per game average over the last six games has been 342.7 YPG. Brady's yards has steadily increased over the season. If he was throwing like he has the last six games all season, he would shatter Marino's record.
Brady beating Marino's record is a definite possibility. It all depends how much he plays against the Giants.
I think he'll enter the Giants game needing fewer than yards than he got in either of the two preceding weeks to break the record.
That should give us something extra to root for, since the TD record will already be safely in hand.
Well, if he maintains his average of the last six weeks, which included a subpar (for Brady) Indy game, he will only need 273 yards to break the record in the Giants game.
Thats like, 3 drives
