More about Player Passing Yards Statistics

Player passing yards is one of the most basic quarterback statistics.  In the modern game well over a third of quarterbacks who play most of the season pass the 4,000 yard mark, which used to be the hallmark one only the greatest quarterbacks. For quarterbacks who play all 16 games that works out to 250 yards per game, which is not terribly impressive in this day and age.  Quarterbacks with 4,000 or more yards are likely above average quarterbacks but do not always indicate quarterbacks on the best teams, as some quarterbacks accumulate high passing yards out of necessity by playing catch up late in games more than other teams.
