Regular Season Passing Yardage Leader has Never Won Super Bowl

I finally figured out what the stat was.

I thought all along the 0-42 stat was for the team with the most passing yards during the regular season.

It turns out, the stat is for the QB with the most passing yards during the regular season.

In 1999, Steve Beuerlein had more passing yards than Kurt Warner.

Here's the list:

The quarterback with the most passing yards has never won the Super Bowl that season:

2006 Drew Brees Saints 4418 Lost NFC championship
2005 Tom Brady Patriots 4110 Lost division round

2003 Peyton Manning Colts 4267 Lost AFC championship
2002 Rich Gannon Raiders 4689 Lost Super Bowl
2001 Kurt Warner Rams 4830 Lost Super Bowl

1992 Dan Marino Dolphins 4116 Lost AFC championship
1991 Warren Moon Oilers 4690 Lost division round
1990 Warren Moon Oilers 4689 Lost wild card
1989 Don Majkowski Packers 4318 Missed playoffs
1988 Dan Marino Dolphins 4434 Missed playoffs
1987 Neil Lomax Cardinals 3387 Missed playoffs
1986 Dan Marino Dolphins 4746 Missed playoffs
1985 Dan Marino Dolphins 4137 Lost AFC championship
1984 Dan Marino Dolphins 5084 Lost Super Bowl
1983 Lynn Dickey Packers 4458 Missed playoffs
1982 Dan Fouts Chargers 2883 Lost division round
1981 Dan Fouts Chargers 4802 Lost AFC championship
1980 Dan Fouts Chargers 4715 Lost AFC championship
1979 Dan Fouts Chargers 4082 Lost division round
1978 Fran Tarkenton Vikings 3468 Lost division round
1977 Joe Ferguson Bills 2803 Missed playoffs
1976 Bert Jones Colts 3104 Lost division round
1975 Ken Anderson Bengals 3169 Lost division round
1974 Ken Anderson Bengals 2667 Missed playoffs
1973 Roman Gabriel Eagles 3219 Missed playoffs

1971 John Hadl Chargers 3075 Missed playoffs
1970 John Brodie 49ers 2941 Lost NFC championship

1968 John Hadl Chargers 3473 Missed playoffs
1967 Joe Namath Jets 4007 Missed playoffs

Now it makes sense.

That is unbelivable.

Again, it just goes to show the Regular Season success means nothing...in this case it's Tom Brady's turn.

Good find fob.

Makes sense. How often has the best defense won the big one?

Wow, that's an amazing stat. Great find, man.

I was positive Warner had the most yards in 1999 but I remember that it seemed like Beuerlein threw for about 400 yards every week. Fascinating.

Yeah, that is some stat. Makes sense though right? Teams that are not as good usually have to rely on the passing game alot.

That is the understatement of the year. In every sport commentators bring up all the obscure stats. Hell, even the Madden curse gets airplay. Yet, something as huge as this goes unnoticed? Wow.

Exactly.

Playing from behind (generally) leads to more (and longer) pass attempts, which leads (generally) to more completions and yardage.

It's quite surprising. You would think one team would be able to pull through.

You could see it this year though: When the weather is poor, you can't pass nearly as much. Teams probably aren't as prepared to run the ball and therefore can't win.

Then again, both Manning and Brady are two of the best passers we will see in our life time and they have won 4 of the last 7 super bowls...

That was a very close week. Beurlein won by less than 100 yards, mostly because Warner did not play much in week 17. I believe Warner had the lead going into the final week.

It'd be interesting to see the same sort of thing for individual rushing and recieving.

Being a Jets fan I hated the Dolphs but loved Marino, so glad we didnt draft him

But how could they never have gotten him a quality RB? If they did he mightve won once maybe.

Good find. Kinda misleading with the topic tile of "in Super Bowls". But interesting nevertheless.

Because the passing leaders are only 0-4 in Super Bowls. Everyone else lost before then.

Oh, right!

Probably would have been easier to just say

"Regular Season Passing Yardage Leader has Never Won the Superbowl"

Good call.
