In 1984, Dan Marino passed for an NFL-record 5,084 yards. No one has equaled that mark since, but Marino thinks this may be the year — and he thinks it may be the year that more than one quarterback breaks his record.
“That’s definitely in jeopardy,” Marino said of his record, on the Dan Patrick Show. “You figure eventually someone’s going to get it, but there’s like four or five guys now who are on pace.”
Actually, six quarterbacks are currently on pace to break Marino’s record: Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Cam Newton, Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers and Tony Romo. Brady leads the way with a ridiculous 1,553 yards through four games, which puts him on pace to shatter Marino’s record and finish the season with 6,212 yards.

bound to happen. it's still funny to me that our QB is one of the guys listed as a potential for breaking the record.

310 yards a game the rest of the year will get newton over marino's record.

I hope Cam Newton can break Marino's record of Super Bowl rings.

But hell, go for it Cam!

He could break the record and end up in fourth or fifth place in passing yards. I bet he would still hold the record for a rookie quarterback.

It is a cool stat, but you know all Cam wants are multiple superbowl rings. And I hope he gets them with the Panthers of course.

Zero rings ain't much of a record. I think he should aim just a little higher.

And Brady will still finish ahead if he keeps up the pace as will Brees

I remember how Dan was when Peyton Manning was on the verge of breaking his touchdown record. These records are all Dan has left to show for his career.

QBs are putting up some crazy numbers so far this year across the board. Goodell has finally turned the NFL into an arena league.

Dan would probably throw for 6000 yards this year. Had the quickest and most accurate release I have ever seen. To bad Miami's defenses were so bad that he only got one shot at a Superbowl.

I believe defenses will catch up and numbers will at least ease back as the season progresses.

To who....Cam???? if so, I dunno...this dude presents some real challenges to any defense e.g. running and passing ability + pure athleticsm + size..... and then factor in the case that he does not really yet have a grasp of the offense (D-wills assessment on his monday nite program)=....scary

fug goodell, marino's 84 season was the best of all time and the only reason manning and brady beat that in terms of td passes was because of his rule changes

When it gets cold, you know Brady will slow way down up in Massachusetts.

I think Drew has the best chance of breaking it. He plays at home in the dome. Wont get cold and snowy in there.

Dont know why he would worry, every record in the book is going to fall eventually.
The Dolphins own the best record in the books, a perfect season and they did it without Marino.
