Just wondered where Ben's 26 stood. The three highlighted ones are the only ones who won the Super Bowl. Those would be the only ones I'd call "successful seasons"

1. 17 - Trent Greene '05
2. 18 - Kitna '07, Moon '94
3. 19 - Collins '02, Brunnell '98
4. 21 - Kitna '06
5. 22 - Schroeder '86, Favre '99
6. 23 - Moon '91
7. 24 - Fouts '79, Kenney '83, Marino '92, George '95, Bledsoe '02, Greene '03, Bulger '06
8. 25 - Elway '94, Bledsoe '94, Cutler '08
9. 26 - Namath '67, P. Manning '99, P. Manning '01, Gannon '02, Brady '05, Brees '06, Palmer '07, Roethlisberger '09, Romo '09
10. 27 - Majkowski '89, Bledsoe '98, P. Manning '02, Plummer '04, Greene '04, P. Manning '08, E. Manning '09
11. 28 - Marino '88, Grbac '00, Palmer '06, Favre '07, Brees '07, Rodgers '08, Rivers '09, Brady '09
12. 29 - Everette '89, Young '94, P. Manning '03, Schaub '09

For some reason, 4000 yards with less than 30 TD's doesn't impress me much. More than 30, I'm impressed:

13. 30 - Fouts '80, Sipe '80, Marino '85, Marino '94, Favre '04, Warner '08, Rodgers '09
14. 31 - Favre '98, Garcia '00, P. Manning '06, P. Manning '07,
15. 32 - Dickey '88, Mitchell '95
16. 33 - Fouts '81, Moon '90, Testaverde '98, P. Manning '00, Favre '09, P. Manning '09
17. 34 - Rivers '08, Brees '08, Brees '09
18. 36 - Young '98, Bueurlein '99, Warner '01, Romo '07
19. 38 - Favre '95
20. 39 - Culpepper '04
21. 41 - Warner '99
22. 44 - Marino '86
23. 48 - Marino '84
24. 49 - Manning '05
25. 50 - Brady '07

Some 4000 yard quarterbacks have 4000 yards because they are passing for a lot of yards at the end of games because their team is losing.... Like Ben who passed for 500 yards to keep up with the Packers offense.

3 QBs who have passed for 4,000 yds won a SB, let this be a lesson, teams who run the ball more are more successful. Mendy gained 1,000 yds on little carries and the steelers miss the playoffs in the only season a steeler QB throws for 4,000 or more yds, and they missed the playoffs because of costly INTs in the redzone when they should have ran it in.
POUND THE DAMN ROCK ARIANS!!!

There's typos a-plenty. Lynn Dickey wasn't playing in '88, last I checked.

Still, there's a good point being made here, which is that there is something awkward about Ben's prolific numbers passing, juxtaposed with any of a number of other stats. Red-zone efficiency has been brought up a lot on these boards. Go to www.pro-football-reference.com and check out career sack leaders among the passers. Ben, for his age, sticks out like a sore thumb. He's 13 years younger than Favre, and yet already has half of his sacks. He ain't gonna be playing at Favre's age, to be sure.
