Manning has 4105 yards through 13 games this season. As ridiculous as this is-and has been contributes to by the stagnant rushing this season, he is already 100 yards clear of his previous season highs (Though he missed halfs before)

If Eli gets 300 or more yards passing in each of the last 3 games, he could hit 5000 yards, making him I believe only the 3rd QB in history to hit that mark. Not even Brady in 07 hit 5000.

Could it happen? And if it did would he finally start getting respected?

I have a feeling the Jets game will give us fits with that statistic, I can see them not throwing as much that game

I think he can come close but I don't really see him going much over 300 next week and I dont see him going much over 250 against the jets.

He could drop 400 on the Cowboys but the weather might have something to say about that. It can be done but Im not banking on it.

As far as respect...Eli's performance on National Television is gonna go a long way in that regard.

If you include playoff games, Eli will definitely throw for 5,000 yards. :)

Its very possible. With the defense sucking the offense needs to put up alot of points. Now if the receivers can stop dropping the ball....

my math at the time, Eli had 3705yds subtracted from 5000, he has to get atleast 323.8 yds the rest of the games, each

Eli only needs 979 yards to break Dan Marino's record....How silly is that?

Never thought in my wildest predictions Eli would ever challenge that record.

he is on pace for it.

he is on pace for it.there are 4 qbs that can break the record.

True that and Eli is definitely in the running.

The Pats, Saints, and Packers will all lock up there seeds before week 17. That should mean less pass attempts one way or another for Brady, Brees, and Roders.

I think obviously Brees does it. I think the other 3 all have a small chance.

And I can guarantee this.... Breaking the 5K yard mark and breaking Marino's record mean a lot more to Brees, Brady, and Rodgers than it does to Eli.

I have an odd feeling the record could be Eli's one day regardless of what happens this year....

And keep in mind, Brees has ALOT more attempts than does Brady, Rodgers, and Eli.

I dont remember the numbers exactly, but I am pretty sure Brees has a couple games worth of attempts more than the other 3. Around 70 or so more.
