    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.

    i doubt it, they put the NE game at 1pm and Denver at 4pm. Plus, Bengals have nothing to gain by winning at all still 6th seed. Joe might see a quarter if that. Having a hail mary shot a 4th seed isnt worth playing your starters when you have an important game the next week. They will be game planning for the Colts all week this week and next week, not the Bengals. They know the Bengals and see them twice a year. It will be like the 4th preseason game.

    4,000 is a big deal. It's one of the bench marks for a franchise QB.

    Besides not every QB throws for 4K. In 2011, 10 QBs threw for 4K or more. In 2010 only 4 QBs did.

    Shut up Dade. If you keep spouting those facts, Boulder"I have an inside source who's wrong 75% of the time but totally trust me on this"Raven will have to admit that throwing for 4k is a pretty big deal. Imagine how painful that would be for him.

    No guys. Obviously Joe sucks and 1500 of those yards don't count. Ray Rice probably got them.
