Greatest Quarterback, Ever?
Posted on: April 15, 2010 11:33 am
From 2000 through the 2009 season, a quarterback accomplished something never before accomplished. Since the addition of teams from 10 to 20 from the 1959 into the 1960 season, no quarterback has been ranked in the top 10 in completion percentage, yards, touchdowns, and passer rating for every season of a decade. The Colts Peyton Manning is the first to claim such honors. He currently has only failed to place in the top ten of these statistical categories in his rookie season. We can say that after missing the playoffs only twice since becoming the starting quarterback in Indianapolis, with two Super Bowl appearances, and a Super Bowl win, Peyton Manning is recreating the record books and changing the standard for a NFL quarterback.
