    Stephen Gostkowski has 432 career points. With 10 more, he will tie Tony Franklin for 4th on the All time Pats scoring list. Then it’s another 250 points to catch John Smith at #3. He’ll need
    700 points to catch #1 and 2, Adam V. and Gino C.


    Kevin Faulk has 3240 rushing yards and with 9 more, he’ll tie John Stephens for 6th all-time in Pats history….

    Wes Welker has 249 receptions. With 12 more, he catches Tony Collins for 9th all time as a Patriot

    Randy Moss has 197 receptions. He’s 10 behind Russ Francis for 15th all time Pats.

    [FONT=&quot]Tom Brady is second in career with 27790 passing yards, second to Bledsoe’s 29,657 which he will equal with another 1867 yards. They both have 554 career rushing yards. I wonder how many yards TFB lost because of all those kneeldowns at the end of games.......

    Re: Patriots' career leaders and upcoming (hopefully) milestones......

    Here's a few more:

    Team
    A win over the Titans Sunday coupled with a Chiefs loss at Washington will result in the Pats being tied with Kansas City for 4th place among the old AFL teams with total franchise victories at 381; they are currently two behind third place Miami. The Raiders currently have the most victories among those ten teams with 406.

    The Patriots are 16th in NFL history with a .516 winning percentage, just ahead of the Steelers. Depending on how the season unfolds the Pats could possibly move past the .519 Ravens, .520 Redskins, .520 Chiefs, and .524 Jaguars by the end of the year.

    With a winning season the Patriots will extend their current NFL-best streak of consecutive winning seasons to nine - the best by any team in the salary cap era. The Cowboys own the record for most consecutive winning seasons in NFL history with twenty from 1966 to 1985.


    Head Coach
    Bill Belichick passed Tony Dungy for 18th place in career regular season wins after the Falcon game. He needs two more wins to tie Marv Levy, five more to tie Mike Shanahan, and eight more to tie Bill Cowher in that category.

    Belichick has already passed Levy and Shanahan this year in total (regular season plus playoff) wins by a head coach, and was already ahead of Dungy before the season started in this category. He needs four more to pass Steve Owen and six more to pass Bill Cowher, which would place him 14th all-time in NFL history.

    Looking further ahead, Belichick needs one playoff win to tie Chuck Noll for fourth most in NFL history, two more to tie Joe Gibbs for third, and four more to tie Don Shula for second most playoff wins by a head coach. Tom Landry, with 20, tops this list - five ahead of Belichick's current total of fifteen.

    Nice addition but Miami wasn't one of the original NFL teams, coming in later (1966 ?) The original AFL teams were Boston (NE...duh) Buffalo, NY Titans (Jets), Houston Oilers (tenn), Dallas Texans (Chiefs), Denver, Oakland and LA Chargers (SD).

    NFL milestones for Tom Brady

    NFL milestones for Tom Brady
    Brady currently ranks 34th all-time in pass completions with 2428, one ahead of Y.A. Tittle, one behind Randall Cunningham, and five behind both Sonny Jurgensen and Kurt Warner. With 34 completions Brady can match #30 Jon Kitna's total, and with 37 Brady will equal #29 John Brodie's total. Looking further ahead Brady needs 240 completions to pass #22 Steve Young.

    Brady currently ranks 45th all-time in passing yards with 27,790. With 200 yards Sunday Brady will pass Craig Morton, Ken Stabler and Terry Bradshaw; with 400 yards Brady will equal Ron Jaworski's career total. The NFL currently has 29 players who have thrown for 30,000 yards; Tom needs 2,210 yards to reach that milestone. There could be four quarterbacks that hit that mark this year: Kurt Warner, Donovan McNabb, Brady and Drew Brees.

    Brady is tied with Jim Everett at 25th all-time with 203 touchdown passes thrown. Right now he is four behind Randall Cunningham, six behind Jim Hart, nine behind Terry Bradshaw and eleven behind John Brodie; he needs 29 to equal Steve Young, who is 20th with 232.


    Team milestones for Tom Brady
    As mentioned earlier, Brady needs 1867 yards to equal Drew Bledsoe's team record of 29,657 yards passing. Brady already owns the team career TD record (203), longest TD pass (91 yards), and wins as a quarterback (87). He needs 116 more completions to catch Bledsoe in that category, and 31 more games to to equal Steve Grogan's record for games played at QB. Brady needs one more yard rushing to tie John Tarver, twenty more to pass Reggie Dupard and Billy Lott for 34th place, and 44 more yards to pass Jon Vaughn for 33rd place in career rushing yardage for the Pats.

    True Miami was not one of the original eight teams, but they were still "old" AFL (along with the Bengals) prior to the merger with the NFL. Considering the head start those other teams had, that does make the Dolphins win total that much more impressive in comparison, which is why I included them.
