Tom Brady has reached another historic milestone.

The 45-year-old quarterback became the first in NFL history to throw for 100,000 yards in the regular season and postseason during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Rams.

The pass that did it was a 15-yard completion to running back Leonard Fournette in the fourth quarter. It set up a fourth-and-5 from the L.A. 32. kicker Ryan Succop sent the ball through the uprights for a field goal, making the score 13-9, Los Angeles.

That milestone throw was about the only highlight that’s come from the second half of Rams-Buccaneers.

L.A. quarterback Matthew Stafford hit receiver Cooper Kupp with a 34-yard pass that put the Rams at Tampa Bay’s 10-yard line late in the third quarter. But the Rams couldn’t put the ball in the end zone and settled for a 35-yard field goal to go up 13-6.

  1. A big number of those yards have come in the postseason. It like Brady has played four extra seasons

  2. Tom Brady is the Pete Rose of football. Rose is my favorite all time baseball player. These guys are winners. Wherever they play they turn the team into a world champion. The ultimate leaders. If you play long enough and you’re an all-time great player, there are records you’re going to reach because you outlasted everyone else. 100,000 yards passing and 4,200 hits just seem unreachable. Hats off to Brady.

  3. Amazing accomplishment. Congrats. Though for a guy who never wanted a farewell tour, this is feeling a lot like a long farewell tour (that may not end till he’s 50).

  4. Wow, that’s a crazy accomplishment. That’s almost as many quarterbacks as we’ve had since coming back into the league.

  5. Great accomplishment, and it’s especially good he took them down the field for a TD and the win with 35 seconds and no timeouts. I sure didn’t have much optimism about that. The Bucs receivers dropped good passes all over the place. I like the looks of this Cade Otton TE.

  6. People thinking Brady’s sham marriage was real are truly clueless. Look through the smoke screen and see what’s really going on. Ever since Nassib joined the team, Brady’s marital issues began. Hmmmm doesn’t take a genius to see what’s going on here. Not to mention he is inseparable from Alex Guerrero. Another clue to the clueless who can’t see the real situation going on

  7. cool deal tommy…but…i would imagine an average starting qb who plays for 25 years could at least get close to that. some records are simply a result of being in the league for so long. frank gore anyone???

    Most of those yards came after the catch

    ———

    Probably 10,000 of them came against your Jets!

  9. over 56 miles…

    Yep, people will knock him, but for many who have watched him, played with him, or played against him, they will eventually notch their part in respect of the legacy.

  10. I remember when Fran Trakenton had the record for years, around 47K yards. Crazy that Brady lapped Tarkenton.

  11. Not a Tom Brady fan, but these comments about his marriage have become ridiculous. He got a divorce. Are people so pathetic that they have to take joy in that? Whether you are a fan of Tom Brady or not, it has to be admitted that he has (at the very least) made a strong argument for the greatest Quarterback of his era.

  12. Guys… it might be time to figure out that system and start pumping out 100k passing yard QBs. 😆

    I’ve been a huge fan and he’s been amazing, but even I never thought he would be the first person to throw for 100,000 passing yards.

  13. Been a bucs fan forever and over the last 20 years watching him play and win over and over again is fun to watch. Just like other players succeed at their position , its entertainment. I just wish they get rid of so many flags and get back to espn Jacked Up!. They get paid enough, let them play ball.

  14. Why is there so much focus on Rogers when discussing Brady? Rogers is not his equal. They are two entirely different QBs, also. Rogers has tremendous talent and great regular season stats. But Rogers is the guy who the coach takes the ball out of his hands in the biggest moments on the biggest stage. Brady is a grinder who rises to the occasion. Brady also has been a good teammate, even lets them punch him.

    What a great conspiracy. Some people are so very clever. Did you dream this up in the school yard?

    Great ball player. What foolish comments. If he was gay, I don’t care. I’m still a fan. I’m sorry his family is going through this.

  16. I HATED Brady for a couple decades, until I watched that Super Bowl comeback against Atlanta, most incredible sporting event I’ve ever seen….and then my Bucs signed him

  17. Why is there so much focus on Rogers when discussing Brady?
    ============

    Beacuse Brady fans are threatened when anything good is said about anyone else.

  18. Tom Brady is the Pete Rose of football.
    ===========

    I like that.

    I’d say Ichiro, and the 1000s of meaningless singles he hit.

    But at least Pete was a winner, you’re right.

  19. Compile all of the team accomplishments, and marks of longevity all you want. All players being in their prime, I’d take Peyton Manning 10/10 times.

  20. Keep in mind that Brady’s early years were a time when NFL passing totals were 25% less than they are today. If his career started now, with today’s league-wide passing game and the continued growth rate therein, Brady would have more than doubled that figure after the same number of years. So when Patrick Mahomes eclipses Brady in half the time it has taken Brady, don’t be shocked.

  21. Great accomplishment. I see a couple current guys breaking it.

    Allen
    Mahomes

    Fun to imagine what those two can do. Especially if Reid would get Pat an offensive line.
