Tom Brady nears 100,000 Passing Yard Milestone
Josiah Bartlett, Sports Editor, The Pawprint
If you have never heard the name Tom Brady, you might as well be living under a rock. He is well known around the world by fans for being the G.O.A.T. of American football (Questionable for me).
During his 23 year career in the NFL, Brady has racked up almost 100,000 career passing yards, including regular season and the playoffs (aka playoffs), 10 Super Bowl appearances with 7 wins, and the most playoff appearances with 47. There are lots of other records that he has, but it’s too long of a list.
Brady will most likely beat this record in his next Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. He only needs 164 yards to reach the 100,000 milestone and be the first QB to do it. The closest player to reach this milestone is retired QB Drew Brees with only 85,000 yards, regular season and postseason.
But can this record be beaten? According to ESPN statisticians, the most realistic player to reach this milestone is in the younger QB group in KC Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, who is most likely going to reach this goal by the age of 41. This is considering he plays every game without injury or other issues.
