Should there be a maximum pass attempt for the rookie passing record?

I see Andrew Luck jacking up 627 attempts to break the rookie passing record while the previous two record holders, Newton and Manning, attempted 517 and 575 passes, respectively. So what do you guys think about rookies jacking up a bunch of attempts to claim the so-called rookie passing record. Should there be a maximum attempt just like they have a minimum attempt for the perfect rating in a game. And should there be an asterisk next to the new record.

Because it doesn't stop a mediocre organization from putting their rookie QB in a position to attempt 800 passes while completing only 54% of them in hope of getting some attention by breaking the record. It did occur to me that after Luck broke the passing record he started throwing less.

In Luck's last 4 games he attempted 34, 27, 35, 28. While he was averaging over 40 in his previous 12.

The only records that mean anything are win-loss records.

Luck still doesn't have Cam's total yardage record for a rookie.

Meh, doesn't concern me. YPA is where the elite separate themselves from the meek, and Cam beats Luck by a full yard.

Would you be asking this question if our QB had been the one to have more attempts and the record?

I think not.

By the way, the most prestigious of Cam's records to me is the total TD record of 35. That stood for 63 years before he broke it, whereas Peyton's was merely 13 years old.

The closest to come to that this year was Wilson, and he ended up with only 30 total.

peyton got his records in an era that was a whole lot less passer friendly. does that discount cam's production?

Considering Cam broke Peyton's record on like 70 fewer throws, not at all.

One of cam's many records is in jeopardy of being broke?

Oh no. Let us make a rule to protect it.

Selfish is what that is.
