Three quarterbacks -- Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and Aaron Rodgers -- are on pace to break Marino's mark. Will any of them finally eclipse the 5,084 yard mark over the remaining four games of the season?

Note that only Rodgers attempts less passes per game than Marino did, and take a look at the pass defense ranking of the final four opponents for each quarterback. On paper, Brady has the easiest pass defenses to face in the final four games. Brees throws the ball the most and completes the most passes. Rodgers throws it the least and clearly faces a much tougher group of pass defenses.

Another interesting note: Marino threw 48 touchdowns that year. Rodgers has 37, and Brees and Brady have 30 each. It doesn't look like any of the three will match Marino there, especially if their teams shut things down in the last week of the season if there's nothing to play for.

Anybody remember how close he was in 2008?
Last play of the last game of the season, ball sails too high for Lance Moore.
Now he's at the door step once again. He may actually need week 17 to get there.
I hope he/they/we get it done.
