They should let Drew have his now tainted record.  Peyton has the TDs per season record, and he'll get the well-deserved AFC MVP of 2013.  And when he loses in his first game of the playoffs, he'll have more time to make commercials.  It's wins for everyone.

As much as I hate Manning, I don't think it would be right to take away his record at this point, since if he had been a few yards short of the record at the time when he was pulled from the game, he would have been left in until to got it.

That's why you don't quit right at the record.  Add another 20-30 yards for safety.

My FFL is with CBS Sports, using their Standard scoring format, which expressly states that stats as recorded live during game are final, regardless of changes by the NFL after review.

Thank you Mr. Manning for Boozers & Losers winning the Moe division [Moe, Larry & Curly] with a 6-7 record, and 3rd highest Reg. Season points.

Lulz ad infinitum if the NFL revokes Manning's record
 
2013-12-31 06:42:09 AM  
Right, because that was the only questionable forward pass vs. lateral call in any of their combined 32 games, and absolutely every reception or incompletion or PI call/noncall for either of them was called correctly and every pass play always results in an exactly even number of yards gained and the ball is spotted absolutely perfectly by the refs on every single play.

Both their numbers might be off by 100 yards in either direction from the "real" number.  Hell, Dan Marino might still be the actual record holder.

/Human element, biatches.  Deal with it.
 
2013-12-31 06:49:50 AM  
Something similar happened to Randy Moss that season he broke the receiving TDs record. He caught what was thought to be the record-tying TD but they went back and said it was a lateral and therefore a rushing TD for Moss. I think that one was corrected during the game though.

Exactly. I saw that he'd broken the record by one yard and then was pulled and figured there was a chance that could come back and bite him in the butt.

Note the bolded word in the following quote from TFA:

That said, I seem to recall Brees not taking a single down off all of 2011, much less an entire half.  Let Manning keep the record.  He clearly had the better year.

I definitely see your point, but you're balancing between two (unlikely) possibilities:

1 - You pull Manning without a "record cushion" and somehow he loses it retroactively.

2 - You leave him in and he gets caught by a blindside corner blitz, concussed, and is out for the playoffs.

I didn't watch the game, so perhaps that second scenario was even less likely than the first.  But if it DID happen (and it always could), the coach would never live it down.

Slow To Return:"The Elias Sports Bureau reviews game tape and stat sheets for the NFL after every week of games"

Well I'm pretty sure that they're not re-measuring yardages down to the millimeter so that a meaningful distinction between 5477 yards and 5476 yards could be made after almost 1000 combined completions' worth of accumulated bad spots and rounding error.

Nabb1: As much as I'd like to see Drew keep the record, I doubt he wants it back like this.


This.  If Brees keeps the record in this way, it will only be because the Broncos "let" him have it.  Manning said himself that these sorts of records won't stand long.  Brees has a few good years still.

That's why a lot of these records are meaningless.

Not to mention this sort of record says more about the team and game than the player.  Not that Peyton Manning isn't one of the best QBs, but passing is up across the board compared to earlier eras (partially due to rule changes) so that someone would break the passing record was more of an inevitability than anything.

No, but they ARE determining the difference between a forward pass and a lateral, which is what's in question here.

anyone remember that running back from the falcons back in the 70's?  iirc, two years in a row he came soooo close to a thousand yard season...had 995, then 997, once due to something like this when they took yardage away.  finally, the next year, he got his 1,000 yard season.

2013-12-31 09:40:41 AM  
Given the way the NFL has changed the rules to inflate the offense and the passing game, how 3 or 4 quarterbacks NOT break passing records on a yearly basis is sort of astounding.

/plus, any records broken by a player who plays more than half his games in a dome should get an asterisk.

2013-12-31 10:13:02 AM  
Well, if the NFL is going to be picky, none of Manning's passes against the Raiders should count. Why? The Oakland raiders are not a professional football team. They are some high school Brittany Spears players lip-syncing and waving their arms around. The December 22nd game against San Diego is just one example. Raiders had a chance to win with 2 TDs, lots of time. A competitive professional team would attempt to score quickly, try an onside kick at least some plan to win the game. What did the Raiders do? Nothing. The Raiders called one stupid play after another.

I think he's mainly referring to players padding their height numbers, Manning is easily over 6' while I have met some of the players Brees has played with and he seems closer to 5"10' than 6'.

Not a big deal but it goes on all the time, silly pride.

Stat readjustments after a game happen all the time.  A guy in our FFL last year had one of his wins switched to a loss after a pass was readjusted into a lateral.

That being said, I don't think they'll readjust this one ... although the video evidence is rather clear.

2013-12-31 11:49:27 AM  
If this was week one with no record on the line, would they adjust it? If yes, then they still should. If no, then they shouldn't.

As I understand, it is the former and this adjustment occurs all the time.

That said, it would be a tough decision for the person to make as you are going to catch a ton of flak either way, but a lot more from adjusting it.

2013-12-31 12:08:00 PM  
im just glad he took back the TD record from Brady.  most of Marino's old records finally fell and the yardage record was one that held up for almost 30 years.  now that it's down i dont have any real affinity for Peyton to own that one plus it was Brees who initially took it.  Marino's records were the few things i held onto since he never got his ring and now theyre gone too.  He was always my favorite in the 80s.
 
2013-12-31 12:09:33 PM  
Not quite indisputable evidence. There is definitely a solid argument for the parallax effect. Regardless, I'm sure Manning is after a Rings, not records. Amirite, Marino?

Fade2black: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: As a Bronco fan, I say take the record away. Gives him something to play for, next year.

I don't really mind Peyton these days.  He seems like a stand up guy...but I really really really hate Eli.

Something tells me that Broncos fans will not be wanting that to be the chip on his shoulder next year.

If the NFL takes this record away from Manning, I predict the highest scoring Super Bowl ever. This is gonna be AWESOME!

SilentStrider: Nabb1: As much as I'd like to see Drew keep the record, I doubt he wants it back like this.

still, the NFL should make sure they get it right. they have their integrity to cons...

wow, i couldn't even type that with a straight face.


What's next actually giving the 1925 championship to Pottsville?

The Flexecutioner: im just glad he took back the TD record from Brady.  most of Marino's old records finally fell and the yardage record was one that held up for almost 30 years.  now that it's down i dont have any real affinity for Peyton to own that one plus it was Brees who initially took it.  Marino's records were the few things i held onto since he never got his ring and now theyre gone too.  He was always my favorite in the 80s.


If Marino played with today's rules the record would probably be 8,327 and he'd probably have a couple rings to boot.

marino had a cool conversation with peyton before sunday's game.  peyton was pretty gracious in acknowledging how different the game is today.  all things considering records really hold different meanings for new rules and culture shifts in the game.

teto85: Won't matter if he gets a ring.

He's already got a ring. One ring only
