Buccaneers Quarterback Passes Incredible Milestone

In a career full of staggering achievements, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has established an incomparable legacy as the NFL's GOAT. Now in his age 45 season, the future Hall of Famer has set yet another mark that may never again be approached. Brady crossed 100 000 combined regular season and postseason passing yards on Sunday afternoon against the Los Angeles Rams.

When Brady initially joined the league in 2000, Dan Marino held the record for combined regular season and postseason passing yards with 65871. Brady already owns the record by a significant margin; second-place Drew Brees sports 85724. The next most behind Brady among active players is Matt Ryan with 64415, and he's currently riding the bench for the Indianapolis Colts. Needless to say, no one will approach 100 000 for quite some time.

It's hard to guess which of Brady's many, many records will become most synonymous with his greatness. 100 000 passing yards is a colossal achievement. Is it any more impressive or meaningful than 10 Super Bowl Appearances or seven Super Bowl rings? Maybe, maybe not. In the end, simplicity wins out more often than not. Brady's seven rings will likely be the first thing that comes to mind when people look back at his magnificent career. Assuming he doesn't win another.
