Default NFL All-Time Quarterback Regular Season Stat Leaders ADJUSTED FOR ERAS To 2016 Stats

Ranking the greatest QB seasons in NFL history

With league shares, we simply take an important counting statistic and look at what portion of the league wide total in that stat an athlete accounted for in a given season. We can then apply that percentage to different years if we want to translate his statistics.

Since 1992 -- the last season there were fewer TD passes than INTs in the NFL -- the league has added an average of about 11 TD passes per year, while interceptions have dropped to the point where the ratio has ballooned to nearly 2-1. By leveling those inclines, league shares places the recent and distant past on equal footing so we can compare them.




All-Time Top 20 NFL Quarterback Regular Seasons, In Adjusted Touchdowns:

Number of touchdowns in 2016 adjusted stats:

1. Tom Brady - 2007 - 55
2. Peyton Manning - 2013 - 54
3. Dan Marino - 1984 - 54
4. Peyton Manning - 2004 - 53
5. Dan Marino - 1986 - 52
6. Drew Brees - 2011 - 49
7. Johnny Unitas - 1959 - 48
8. Aaron Rodgers - 2011 - 48
9. Kurt Warner - 1999 - 47
10. Brett Favre - 1996 - 46
11. Drew Brees - 2012 - 45
12. Jim Kelly - 1991 - 44
13. Ken Stabler - 1974- 44
14. Matt Stafford - 2011 - 43
15. Kurt Warner - 2001 - 43
16. Daryle Lamonica - 43
17. Ken Stabler - 1976 - 43
18. Brett Favre - 1995 - 42
19. Daunte Culpepper - 2004 - 42
20. Brett Favre - 1997 - 42


League shares also vaults great veterans of the NFL's more offensively challenged eras onto the career leader board. Johnny Unitas leaps from 13th on the all-time career list to seventh in adjusted touchdowns, with numbers that translate to 394 TDs and 159 INTs in the environment of 2016. The low touchdown-to-interception ratios of John Hadl (244-to-268, adjusted to 329-to-156 in 2016) and Joe Namath (173-to-200, 239-to-134 adjusted) reflect their era rather than their recklessness. And Stabler (194-to-222, 291-to-142 adjusted) looks like a Hall of Famer. But the five men who have actually thrown for far more career touchdowns than other QBs still lead the pack:


All-Time Top 5 NFL Quarterbacks, In Adjusted Regular Season Career Touchdowns:

#2 all time for a single season, after Brady's '07.

This is for the regular season though...

So 2nd greatest individual regular season ever, and best for career...

I don't think anyone has ever disputed that Peyton is the best regular season QB ever - the only other QB with an argument for that is probably Favre.

Or Brady, if he plays a few more years.

Of course, in the adjusted career playoff stats....Brady would be owning all these records.

Just like it's pretty much generally accepted that Brady's '07 season was the best individual season ever by a QB. These adjusted stats basically confirm these things. This dispels the myth that so many Brady haters claim that "you can't compare eras".

Yes, you can....the adjusted for different eras stats clearly prove Brady over Montana and Elway, and also that Marino's stats were "not leaps and bounds higher than any QBs stats today", another claim haters make up. Like how they claim Marino would have had 6,000 yards and 60 tds today...no, the adjusted for era stats show that actually Brees already passed Marino in touchdowns, when adjusting for eras.

This also disputes how some haters claim Unitas would have the best stats ever, adjusted for era, etc.

Basically these adjusted stats prove reality:

1. Brady's '07 season was the best QB season ever.

2. P. Manning is the best regular season QB ever, with Favre being 2nd.

3. Brady is the best of course post season QB ever, and miles ahead of Montana, Elway, Unitas, etc. that other people claim were the "GOAT" and use made up bullshit like, "adjusting the stats for the different eras". Nope, this actually does that, and clearly puts Brady ahead of all of them by miles.

4. Dispels the myth that Marino had better numbers than any QB, "when adjusted for era".

5. Including post season, establishes Brady as the GOAT, since Montana is nowhere near to Brady either in regular season or post season, when adjusting for the numbers.

6. Confirms reality of what objective NFL fans already knew -

Brady = the GOAT
P. Manning = the best regular season QB ever (with only Brady reasonably having chance to catch him)
Montana = passed up by Brady, when considering the number of titles won (4 for Montana, 4, maybe 5 for Brady), and the adjusted for era stats.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Brady haters and Montana dick riders, as usual, will of course find a way to try to twist and manipulate these adjusted for era stats.

How does this show that 2007 was the best season ever for a quarterback?

Peyton in 2004 >.

Literally threw 2 passes in the last game. Had he played that full game he would be #1 here.

Higher QB rating, YPA, TD%, etc.

Best season ever touchdown wise. And you can't use the last game of 2004 season that way...Brady was sitting or the Patriots were running the ball for whole 4th quarters that entire season.

2007 you mean the same year he put up a dud in the Super Bowl? When he led his team to score 14 points?

The only QBs to win the SB those seasons in the top 10 are Warner and Favre...

I know he technically has the TD record but does anyone feel like Peyton's 2013 just isn't up to par with Brady's 2007 or Peyton's 2004??


It just didn't seem like to me that that season was memorable. When watching the Broncos that year, I don't think teams were as scared to play that offense the way teams were against the Pats in 07 or Colts in 04.


Hell, even Marino in 84 is more impressive because the league back then wasn't as pass happy or curated for offenses to explode like it is now or the last few years.

The Patriots were 16-0 that season. Brady was hardly throwing the ball for most 4th quarters.

I pretty clearly remember the Pats running up scores and not giving a F in 2007.

Brady tossed 10 TD passes in the 4th Q that year.

So much for the narrative of "hardly throwing the ball"

Why would you choose to lie about readily available stats?
