Peyton Manning is the only other QB to average at least 2 TD passes per game in the regular season, but not so when adding in playoff numbers.

Takes the sting out of those 7 - 9 seasons, doesn't it?

Yes Drew and Aaron are great QB's, but it's also a sign of the times. People are throwing fades or rub plays with goal to go because it's tough for defenses to stop these days. This reduces the number of rushing TD's and increases the number of passing TD's.

While this is true, the fact remains only 2 QBs in this era of high playing passing attacks have achieved it.

Even the great Tom Brady is some 20 TDs short of that average, and QBs like Rivers, Ryan, Stafford and Roethlisberger are not even close.

Re: Only two QBs in NFL history have averaged 2 passing TDs per game played

First thing I always ask who is on the bench to replace them?

Well trade is a mute issue for the saints right now

The NFL hall fame already has his bust.

The only question I am asking is this

How much has the change in the rules effect this 2 TD stat?
