The world of sports has Cristiano Ronaldo to thank for many things, but American football fans have one small thing in particular… Tom Brady’s return to the NFL. The withdrawal of the GOAT from the grid lasted little longer.
Tom Brady posted a farewell message to his professional career with emotional words, but that lasted very little and all thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo and a trip to see Manchester United. RWe really don’t know if the ‘Bug’ influenced his decision, but the return of the GOAT occurred after seeing the Portuguese.
Boooo, the Buccaneers must be more than happy with Tom Brady’s return, except for Blaine Gabbert, who will have to bench again. The Tampa Bay franchise is once again a contender for the Vince Lombardi.
His eighth Super Bowl ring is what Tom Brady is after by returning for another season with the Buccaneersbut not only that, there are a few individual records that do not take away your sleep, but surely you would like to have them in your possession.
4 individual records that Tom Brady is chasing
Most passing yards in a season
Few individual seasons were as dominant as Peyton Manning’s in 2013 with the Denver Broncos and he holds the record for most passing yards in a single season. The oldest of the Manning managed 5 thousand 477 yards in that year and is one of the records that Tom Brady has in his sights.
Last season, that is, 2021, Tom Brady came close to that Peyton Manning record, but failed to tie or beat Manning. So, in this 2022, the GOAT will go in search of a new brand.
Most touchdown passes in a season
We say it again Peyton Manning had a near perfect season in 2013 and set the mark for most touchdown passes in a season with 55, but Tom Brady has come close to those numbers. In 2007, he had 50 touchdown passes, but in 2022 he could surpass the former Broncos QB.
QB rating in a season, Tom Brady’s most difficult challenge
Aaron Rodgers rules this department, because he not only has the highest rating for a QB in a season, but also the second best. 122.5 and 121.5 were the numbers the Packers quarterback achieved in 2011 and 2020, respectively.
Tom Brady will have the opportunity for one more season to surpass Aaron Rodgers in the QB rating and he’s been a bit behind in the numbers, with his best percentage being 117.2 in 2007.
Yards per game in a single season
In this category, there are two QBs sharing the first place and they are Drew Brees in 2011 and Peyton Manning in 2013, both managed 342.3 yards per game in one season. Tom Brady was close to tying them in 2011 as he had 327.2 yards and in 2021, it could be one of his goals.
