    Flacco Closing in on 4,000 yards.



    With his 309 today, that puts him at 3,783 by my calculations.


    217 yards against the Bengals would do it.

    I do to. He already has a new career high with what he did today. 4,000 would be great.

    Meh. Nearly everyone throws for 4,000 yards these days. Its like what 3,000 yards was 20 years ago.

    This in no way diminishes the accomplishment or adds anything to this thread.

    And no, not "nearly every QB" does it. Right now only 8 out of the 32 starters are above 4,000 yards.

    Brees
    Stafford
    Romo
    Brady
    Ryan
    P. Manning
    Luck
    Palmer

    Right now there are guys like Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning, Philip Rivers and RG3 that aren't there. In fact, Flacco is ahead of all of them except Rodgers. The only two QB's right now ahead of Joe that aren't at 4,000 yet are Rodgers and Josh Freeman.

    So maybe by the end of next week, Flacco would be in company of about 12-14 QB's with 4,000 yards or more. And considering the offensive sputtering we've had this year, especially on the road, Flacco getting to 4,000 would be a big deal and a pretty damn good stepping stone to future success.

    A 16 game season, with pass crappy rules, no grounding outside the pocket, Olineman can hold, Db;s can't even touch a WR.....anybody can throw for 4k these days. An impressive stat these days are QB sacks in this holding/no grounding/ roughing the the QB era. Now 48 yard FGs are chipshots, used to be a really difficult kick. Special balls for kickers and no jumping to block the kick. Game is technobowl. Officiating and the NFL rules committee ruined a once entertaining sport. Just get better helmuts and change the rules back, especially the grounding rule.

    Some not cause of injuries and missing time, half the league starters will throw for 4k or close. It's like being a .270 hitter in baseball.

    Mark Sanchez
    Cam Newton
    Philip Rivers
    Sam Bradford
    Brandon Weeden
    Ryan Fitzpatrick
    Ryan Ranehill
    Christian Ponder

    These guys have no shot, and it's not a lock Eli Manning or Matt Schaub will hit 4,000 and the Texans currently have the #1 seed.

    4,000 yards is still a big deal.

    Joe wont get 4k, he isnt playing next week. But all those guys are all in the same boat. Not alot of great names on that list. Some of them have missed games as well. 4k isnt a big deal. Joe wont get it.

    Half that list are players most likely not sniffing playoffs, either. Most teams have had alot of QB's miss alot of time or rookies starting this year or 2 year players. SACKS in this age is an impressive stat or a RB getting 1500 yards.

    Joe is playing next week. A chance to catch the 3rd seed? Joe is playing.
