I'm not so sure Mahomes will just roll to 80,000 yards. Rodgers is currently at 51,000.(he turned 37 in December) You need to play a REALLY long time, at a high level, and avoid injuries to reach that milestone. There is no guarantee any QB will be able to do so. Football is still pretty rough and a lot of guys get beaten out of the game by the time they are 37/38 and have made a ton of money and just don't want to take the hits.He's gonna get the passing yards record as well. Both will eventually be broken because the league is just bonkers now and guys like Mahomes will average 38-45 TDs and 4800 yards a season for a decade, especially with 17 games. Still, I don't know of a sport in which the owner of the top spot in all its major statistical categories is also the winningest player. Pretty special.
Brady is just a psycho. And Brees is pretty impressive, too, but less so because he was in a dome. So much easier to compile big numbers in a dome, especially when they are cumulative over 2 decades. That's a massive amount of climate controlled games.
