    Without looking, of course.

    (A) thrown at least 20 TDs and no more than 5 picks through the end of week 13?

    (B) thrown at least 30 TDs and no more than 10 picks for the entire season?

    You can find the answer at pro-football-reference.com; it's quite surprising.

    If you don't mind I'd like to add one I heard yesterday on the radio:

    Since the merger, which QB has the most games with 300 passing yards, 4 TDs, and 0 INTs?

    The number of games is 8.

    Hint: This QB just did it in back to back weeks

    :D

    I have no idea in regards to the first part of the question, other than Brady in '07.

    As for part B, obviously there is Brady in 2007.
    For other I will guess:
    - Manning probably did it once, maybe the year he threw 49 TD
    - Drew Brees last year?
    - I know a lot was made of Favre's season last year, did he go 30/10?
    - Kurt Warner had a few incredible seasons, maybe his first year as starter when the Rams won the SB?
    - Dan Marino? Joe Montana? Steve Young?

    I doubt there's anybody from prior to then because interception percentages used to be higher and completion percentages were lower before some of the rule changes over the years. In fact Marino and Montana are probably doubtful for making this list.

    So I guess I'll go with Brady, Manning, Brees, Favre, Warner and Young. Then there's probably somebody you'd never think of like Rich Gannon on the list too.

    I was going to say McNabb in 2004 as he had 28 TDs and 5 int through week #12 but had one of each the next week giving him 29/6 through 13 weeks...

    He finished that season with 31 TD passes and 8 ints.

    Off the top of my head, I think the over 30 TDs, under 10 INTs club is McNabb in 04, Manning in 06, Brady in 07, Rodgers and Favre in 09. Rivers may have done it in 08, but I'm not sure without looking. Without a doubt, Brady's was the best of those seasons (50:8), and at the end of the year, he's likely to be the only one to do it twice.

    If throwing exactly 10 picks still gets you a mention, I think Steve Young did it at least once. Something like 35:10 in 1994 and possibly once more. Manning also did 49:10 in 04, which was an insane year for anyone with a good receiving core because of the PI rule adjustments (Even Culpepper threw something like 39:11).

    Let's say you have to throw less than 10. ;)
