    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)

    Playoff/Superbowl Records:

    - 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).

    I heard (here) that TB is just an "above average QB", that threw too many picks.

    Re: Tom Brady's NFL Records

    I'm confused, isn't Brady spoiled and dictates our offense to enhance his statistics and ego? Isn't he the reason we haven't won a Super Bowl in years? Hasn't this stat machine thrown like 5 interceptions in AFC title games...I mean yeah he's played in 6 of them and won 5, but who's counting? For the love of god - if he wasn't here the big dig would of been done on schedule and the housing market wouldn't of collapsed. How many more years do we have to put up with this bum as our QB? He clearly is holding us back.

    Isn't "seeing the light" a sure death sentence for those blood suckers?

    Perhaps that's why he never will.

    Re: Tom Brady's NFL Records

    When Brady surpasses Montana in yardage/TDs and Super Bowls it will be a big deal. Both to fans and Brady himself. Not sure how close he is in the yardage/Tds category, but he has to be very close (4500yrds 20-30TDs?) . As for the SBs that will rectify itself soon.

    My favourite Montana quote also applies to TB--

    "I don't throw darts at ballons, I throw ballons at darts"--- Joe Montana

     

    I could be wrong, but Brady completion % is probably better.....at least over his last five seasons.

    Thanks Digger I knew he was close, but I did not he was that close or has surpassed Montana's records.

    Brady is seriously close to being the greatest of all time. Three years and two SBs would easily do it.

    Re: Tom Brady's NFL Records

    if he plays 7 more years avg. 30 tds per year, he may break Favre's record for career TDs.

    I don't think he has the arm or wrs to break career passing yards.


    Doesn't make a difference tho, another SB win or not, he's a shoo-in for HOF, short of some bizarre scandal invoving steroids.

    He's certainly up there in all of the categories, he wont catch farve because he played forever but he's a better qb than Farve was.  Remember, Farve also holds the record for most interceptions, something that Brady is very good at keeping low. 

    In the end all I want to see is Brady having the most Super Bowl wins, he has a realistic shot at that, it's a tribute to both him and Belichick
