    Both are pretty damn impressive, but I never understood why they track things like this and call them records. It's not a record, it's just a stat.

    It's as bad as last week when some guy mentioned the "record" for the most combined yards in the best 3 games of a QB's career was Dan Marino with x amount of yards. Not a record, just a stat.

    Interesting little blurb I found this morning. Also might put Rex's numbers into perspective a little:


    5. Is 400 the new 300?

    Speaking of 400-yard games, you've probably noticed that we've seen a number of games this season that have featured 400 or more passing yards. Six to be exact, which is quite a lot. In fact, we're currently on pace -- barring another offensive outpouring on Monday night -- for a whopping 48 400-yard games and and an absolutely insane 176 300-yard games in 2011

    Year: 300-Yard Games, 400-Yard Games
    2006: 65, 7
    2007: 81, 4
    2008: 76, 8
    2009: 100, 7
    2010: 96, 11
    2011: 22, 6

    Now, there's a bit of caveating that needs to occur here. First of all, Newton is on pace to throw for something like 6,538 passing yards in 2011. While it would be foolish to guarantee it won't happen, it's pretty unlikely that Newton shatters Dan Marino's single-season passing yardage record by nearly 1,500 yards. (Tom Brady is, of course, more likely, but it's still a long ways off.)

    Which is to say, it's still early, and you can't just simply project NFL numbers, particularly 400-yard passing games, across a season and expect continuity from here on out.

    But as recently as 1998, we had just 52 300-yard games. At this year's pace, we're in reach of that many 400-yarders. It might not happen right now, but remember how 1,500-yard rushing seasons replaced 1,000 yard seasons as the new benchmark?

    That transition is in process for the passing game right now, thanks to the entire league taking things aerial. It's a trend that won't go away and, sooner than later, 400 might actually become the new 300.
