Tom Brady: Records He'll Break Before Retiring
Can you name any of the records that Tom Brady has broken thus far in his already illustrious career?
No, he's not the yardage king or touchdown leader (yet). He does hold some pretty impressive numbers in other areas though.
It has actually become a subject to discuss lately, and Mr. Brady has joined some pretty elite company at, or near, the top of the charts with some of the greats of the game.
For instance, Brady has joined 13 other players who have surpassed 40,000 passing yards in their careers. That is a big milestone even by today's standards.
Brady is also now in the No. 5 spot all time in touchdown passes with 301; this puts him above Hall of Famer John Elway.
Of course, it would be a long shot to surpass the leader in this category, that would be none other than the great Brett Favre with 508... Brady may not have that much time left in his right arm.
Regular Season Records:
- Most Touchdown Passes, Season: 50 (2007)
- Highest Completion Percentage, Game (15 completions) 92.9% AFC-Division '07
-Most Passes Attempted, Career - 156 (4 games)
-Most Passes Completed, Career - 100 (4 games)
-Most Attempts, Without Interception, Game - 48 (Superbowl XLII)
-Most completions, Game - 32 (Super Bowl XXXVIII)
-Brady is the fastest quarterback to hit 100 career wins and is tied for the most post season wins with Joe Montana at 16. When you factor in winning percentage, he breaks that tie for first place all time.
Brady's overall record is 125-37 (.772) in regular-season and playoff games. It is the best record of any NFL quarterback in the Super Bowl Era (since 1966) with at least 100 starts.
Brady's touchdown-to-interception ratio (2.53) is the best in NFL history among all players with 2,000 or more passing attempts, and he has set several other efficiency marks that make him one of the most accurate passers of all time.
Brady shares the record for most consecutive games with two TD passes at 13 with Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers. But, Brady holds the record for consecutive 3 touchdown games with 10. And, he shares the record for back to back games with 5 touchdown passes along with Daunte Culpepper.
Brady has also thrown a touchdown pass in 33 straight games, not even close to the record, but pretty gaudy anyways. Along with Drew Brees, this is the only active streak, although Brady trails him by 11 games. Only Johnny Unitas has more with 47.
Whether Tom Brady will break any more records is anybody's guess, but more important is the desire to win one more Super Bowl. The Giants have spoiled his dreams twice, making Brady and the Patriots that much more hungry for that elusive fourth title (another record he would share or possibly go on to break).
