Payton\'s career rushing total won\'t be only record to fall

Much attention is being placed on Emmitt Smith closing in (540 more yards) on the all time rushing yardage record, but rest assured that his record will not be the only to be set this season - or in the near future. Kicker Gary Anderson danced around like an idiot when he broke George Blanda's career scoring mark of 2,002 points and now stands at 2,135 but has no team. Meanwhile, Morten Andersen has just latched onto his 4th team, Kansas City, and is just 122 points short of taking Gary off the top of the scoring mountain. It would be a career high for Andersen, but 5 times he has scored 120 points or more. If he could somehow last another season it would obviously seal the deal. Once Jerry Rice scores his second TD this year he will become the only purely non-kicker to appear in the top 20.

Speaking of Jerry Rice, he has 198 career touchdowns, a whopping 41 ahead of second place Emmitt Smith, and probably will score at least 6 more this season. But he might not have the record come 2006 after 5 more Faulk-ish seasons by Marshall who enters 2002 with 108 career scores, 47 of which have come in just the past 2 seasons. He would need to average 19 scores, but he in that offense I see it happening. It deserves noting that 2 more solid seasons (8 per) from Tim Brown (currently #13 with 100) would land him at #7 and secure his Hall of Fame induction. Poor Ricky Watters is just 18 scores away from a top 10 career finish, but is on the unemployment line at the moment.

Another career record with a wide margin from 1st ot 2nd that could fall is the career TD passes mark held by Dan Marino at 420. Favre is sitting at 286, but if he plays 5 more solid seasons averaging 27 or 4 more with a 33 average he will unseat him. Even more amazing to me is that if Vinny Testaverde has a 30 TD season (his career high is 33) he will pass some fellow named Joe Montana for #7 all time. Not bad for a guy who tossed just 13 scores while being picked off 35 times in his first season.

One Marino record appears safe, and that is career yardage at 61,361 which is nearly 10K better than second place John Elway. Bret Favre is turning 33 this season and stands 22,871 yards shy of the record. If he can last 6 more seasons, which means being productive at 38, he could get there by averaging 3,811 yards over that span. He hasn't failed to pass for that many yards in any of his past 8 seasons in which he has averaged a gaudy 4,012. Again, our friend Mr. Testaverde creeps up the list, and with just 1,473 yards he is going to pass Unitas and Montana (while likely being passed by Favre) to sit at #7. The guy who should wind up with the record is Peyton Manning, who has already piled up 12,679 yards in 3 seasons and is just 26 years old. Amazingly enough, he needs 12 more seasons of 4,000 yards or better to do it, but has averaged 4,226 thus far and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Safety Rod Woodson is not going to catch Paul Krause (81 career interceptions) but a healthy season of 7 would land him at #3 all time, and cement his spot in history. He has already earned a position on the 75th anniversary all-NFL team.

Payton's career rushing total won't be only record to fall

How pissed is Morten Andersen that his pal Gary Anderson keeps coming out of retirement? Last year Gary returned following a season ending injury to Nedney and kicked for the Titans, besting Morten by 17 points in the process for a 2,346-2,259 lead. Still, Morten had to feel good about needing only 88 points this year with Gary gone fishing. He even picked up 5 points in the opening week as the new kicker for the team Gary spent the 1998-2002 seasons with - Minnesota.

Then Nedney went down with another season ending injury and here's Gary! After spending his first 13 years in Pittsburgh, two in Philly, one in San Francisco and the aforementioned five in Minnesota this will be his second in Tennessee and 23rd overall. Morten also spent his first 13 campaigns with the same team (New Orleans) before a short jaunt to Atlanta where he hung out for 6 years. He made a one year stop in New York (Giants) and then lasted two seasons for the high scoring Kansas City Chiefs before getting the call this year for Minnesota for season #23 himself.

Their numbers are very similar overall, with the notable difference being Morten's ability to boot the long ball which was aided by his long tenure in domed stadiums. He holds a 40-12 edge in 50+ yarders although in 3 seasons after leaving the domes he had just three. Ironically, Gary had just 3 himself in the five years he played in the Metrodome. Morten has 17 seasons where he has at least one field goal over 50 yards, with another 3 marked by a high of 49 and one where his high was 48. His rookie season (8 games) was his career low for highs at 45. Gary has only 9 seasons with a 50+ with 4 highs of 49 and 2 of 48. Three of his past four years he has failed to make a kick past 44 yards.

Gary has a 521-502 edge in total field goals and a 80.2% to 78.9% advantage in accuracy. He has also missed 7 extra points while Morten has failed on 10. Combined these guys have attempted an astounding 1,558 PATs.

Total games now stands at Morten 339, Gary 338 thanks to the latter being out of business while Nedney was healthy. The only questions are a) how much longer these legends can keep it up, and b) why quality kickers are so hard to come by.
