Since I dont want t be accused of lifting other people's material, I thought I'd make this contribution early. Prior to Brady's 2nd pick, after which the Saints went into clock management mode, Brees had gained 17.2 yards per pass attempt. 17.2. Let that number sink in for a bit. I had never heard of let alone seen a qb with a ypa number that high in a single game. Enter profootballreference.com. Turns out since 2000, the highest single game ypa a qb has enjoyed is 15.6 by Steve McNair against the Texicans in 2003. Going back all the way to 1960, only Unitas (18.5) and Namath (17.7) had higher single game ypa's. OK, ready for one more nugget? At that time, the Saints had averaged 10.4 yards per play overall. I cant remember a pro team averaging double figures in that stat. But what about college? THe biggest offensive outburst I can think of is texas tech's 66-point, 740-yard day vs kansas state. Well, the red raiders only managed a paltry 11.2 ypa and about 9 ypp. There was also Nevada's destruction of Idaho and Oregon's dismantling of usc, but alas the wolfpack and ducks did most of their damage on the ground. More perspective: brady's ypa vs the titans:12; ypp: about 9.
