    NFL to take away Peytons passing yardage record?

    could care less about the record but the right thing to do is adjust the total and take it away!

    The NFL reviews game tape and stat sheets after every week of games and will occasionally alter all kinds of things, from yardage numbers to sack totals. And it’s possible that when the league reviews the Denver Broncos’ 34-14 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Peyton Manning’s single-season yardage record could be in a bit of danger.

     

    With 1:28 left in the first quarter of the game, Manning threw what was called a seven-yard pass to receiver Eric Decker on 1st-and-5 from the Oakland 49-yard line. However, in the video below (H/T to SportsGrid via Reddit NFL), it’s clear that Manning threw the ball backward, which makes it a lateral. With that in mind, Decker should technically be credited with a seven-yard run.

    (GIF via The Big Lead)

    And under those circumstances, Manning didn’t break Drew Brees’ single-season passing yardage record by one yard. He would have 5,470 yards, not 5,477, and Brees would still have the mark with the 5,476 yards he threw for in 2011.

    As the stats stand now, Manning threw for 266 yards on 25 completions before he was pulled at the half to preserve him for the playoffs. The game wasn’t competitive and the Broncos were going to wrap up the AFC’s top seed whether Manning finished the game or not. Nobody could criticize head coach John Fox after the fact, but would Manning have come out for the second half with that record still on the line? Given Manning’s ken awareness of NFL history, it’s certainly feasible.

    Fox was actually asked that very question on Monday.

    “That’s hard to say. What was very positive was I thought we played one of our better halves of football that put us in a position where we could do different things. Number one, all those things are great—those individual accomplishments, team accomplishments—but not at the risk of putting a player at risk. So I don’t know if I’ve answered your question, I’m just kind of telling you what would go through our minds in that situation.”

    Even if the yardage record is taken away, Manning still finished the 2013 regular season with a league-record 55 passes (though, technically, he should have 54), and the Broncos set the NFL’s new pace by scoring 606 points on the season.

    But the yardage record? Technically, not so much.

    The league took away a Gronk TD reception a few years ago for similar reasons. The pass from Brady later ruled a lateral. Gronk got credit for the touchdown, of course, but not the reception

    No rooting interest for me on this thing though. I dont care how it plays out. Brees & Manning, both stats wh*res

    I assume Manning's new record will stand though

    No worries.  Both Gomer's records (if they uphold the YDs one) will be broken before the next presidential election.  

    And lil' bro Eli has a good shot at coming in #2 on the most INTs in a season record (35, held by Testaverde).  And both could vie for Favre's all-time INTs thrown.

    That's what I keep reading on this board until Brady breaks a record or until threads like these are started.

    In a pass-driven league, passing records will fall, and fall frequently.  So, Peyton fans can rejoice in this year's accomplishments, just like Brady's fans did in 2007.  What counts at the end of the day is who won the Super Bowl.  And this year, it will not be Manning.  Then who?  Brady definitely has a shot at getting to the SB.  Then, we'll see.

    Red Sox 2013 World Series Champions.  Patriots 2014 Super Bowl Champions???!!!
