    Drew is about 4,000 yards away from passing Vinny T, on the alltime passing yard list, Drew is currently #10 on the list vinny is 6, Do you think drew will pass vinny when his career is over. Also hes only 7,000 yards behind Frank Tarkenton for 5th place what do you think his chances are for achieving such and elite status as #5

    o yea.. list http://nfl.com/features/squibkicks

    HE IS AT 40,000 Yards at age 32.

    There is a very, very short list that ever have thrown for 50,000. VT has NFL record for career Ints.

    Drew's won 2 AFC championship games. His legacy rests on winning a Lombardi - He does that here he's a Hall of Fame player....and a legend in Dallas lore.

    Stats wise not much different at all - football rewards a Super Bowl QB in a Team game - not sure thats fair but thats how it is.

    Steelers have gone to bank on that premise.....

    I think Bledsoe has a pretty good chance of putting together two 3,500 yards passing seasons here in Dallas, he's done it six times already. He has not been injury prone, is still relatively young and BP will be here next year as well. He stands a pretty good chance.

    Anyone watch the Pats/Raiders game? I have a question. Is Tom Brady mobile? I say no. This guy just has an awesome line in front of him. In fact, when I have seen him under pressure, he makes mistakes. Anyway ah yes, my point. Bledsoe did not pass for this many yards without a feeling in the pocket. Funny, when Patriots traded Bledsoe to Buffalo he was a savior. Now he is trash. Happened pretty fast. I watched Buffalo, he had no offensive line and his last season he had no great running game till mid season. He then w/ Buffalo ran of what something like 7 of 8 games before the loss in the playoffs. Even if you blame him for the playoff loss, you can't discount the difference a line of protection would have done for him. I am on board w/ Bledsoe and may God help us all if we can't protect him!

    if our offensive line can protect drew and give him the time to throw.....................

    the sky's the limit.

    the man has got an arm from hell, and he's about ready to show some folks what time it is.

    does anyone out there feel me?

    I guess the real question is, can our line protect him? I hope so. They should A rookie at one spot, but looks to be a keeper. Can't discount 3 pro-bowlers and Campbell back. If we can't protect him, Rivera was a waste. My nightmare is that Arizona pre-season. That is probably everyone's nightmare. All I can say is Parcells seems upbeat and happy. He must be happy about something besides just the d.

    Steve Young won his 1st SB at age 33, and he's not near the QB Bledsoe was. Elway at what 36 till he won one? Its all about the Lombardi.

    We protect Drew with this cast - this team is a Super Bowl contendor, I think thats vastly overlooked....

    If Drew stays healthy (and he should) he will pass VT well before midseason in '06. He could even do it in '05 but I think we will run the ball so much that he is very unlikely to put up 4000 yards (that is a good thing for us). But I do expect him to get 3200 to 3500 yards both this year and next. He will move up the list steadily and pass VT easily but he might need a contract extension to beat out Fran for #5.

    I know the 3 amigo's in the desert had real hardcore opinions watching Bledsoe, Henson, Romo in desert first preseason game -

    Bledsoe is really a #1 overall pick, 20 year old starter for BP with Pats. Going to be a top 5 overall yardage guy easily. I have seen this lower bowl 50 times - kids talented, real talented.

    Take shots at me for that opinion but I've personally been at 150 NFL games regular season to form that opinion.

    Actually George Blanda holds the NFL record for career INTs with 277. Vinny has 255 which puts him about 5th all-time.

    He's been corrected on that fact at least three times that I've seen, yet he just keeps posting it over and over. Why let a little thing like 'facts' get in the way of your preconceived notions?

    Nors gets confused because last year Vinny held the record for INT's among active quarterbacks but he isn't active any more.

    He does not have 40,000 yards yet, he is closer to 34 than 32, and Vinny has not thrown the most INTs in NFL history.

    Nice to see facts over mantra.:rolleyes:

    p.s. I'm pretty sure that bringing other posters up in a thread that none of them has even participated in, before this reply, is against the forum rules.;)

    An awesome line? So what exactly makes that line? Is it the collection of talent that was accumulated from the second day of the draft and undrafted free agents?

    Brady's ability to make decisive decisions and audible makes him what he is. That is why that team has been able to remake their offensive line practically every year and he still has the same results. He is just a good quarterback. According to some, he is even calling the plays in New England.

    I doubt Bledsoe could do that.

    Bledsoe ran the no huddle and is outstanding at audibling. Seen him do that in NE and there is a big article on that last year on 9-2 Bills tear.

    Brady gets OUTSTANDING Oline production. Forget pedigree - he has a team in front of him that protects him.

    Brady makes his line look great by moving in the pocket to buy extra time. Period.

    Steve Young put Joe Montana on the bench. Not the QB Bledsoe was? That's just plain stupid Nors. Is there a HOF bias for the 49ers? Steve Young was a great QB no matter if Cowboys fans want to admit it or not.

    And injury PUT Montana on the bench and the fact that Montana was getting old and beat up kept him there. When they were both in their prime Young rode the pine while Joe Montana played.
