10 Best Seasons by a Quarterback

The quarterback position has blossomed in the past decade, breaking records that had been held for 20 years or longer. It is a new era for Hall of Fame contenders. The passing game is taking over offenses, with some quarterbacks throwing the ball over 700 times in a season, adding to the excitement of the game. Throwing for 5000 yards in a season seemed impossible until Dan Marino did it, and it took 24 years until someone came close to beating that record. Now in the past 5 years we have seen four different quarterbacks throw for over 5000 yards in a season, and breaking records that no one thought could be broken. With all the passing and breathtaking catches, the game has gone to another level of excitement, and it’s all thanks to these amazing quarterbacks. Here are the ten best seasons by a quarterback.

10. Matthew Stafford – 2011

Matthew is still a very young quarterback, being only 26 years old, but has made a huge impact on the NFL with his big arm and pin point accuracy. In 2011 he showed he was elite by throwing for 5038 yards, with 41 touchdowns, while only throwing 16 interceptions. Matthew had 421 completed passes that season, with a 97.2 passer rating, which is his career best. He set career bests in almost every aspect of the game that year, and with Calvin Johnson as his primary receiver, the sky is the limit for this great quarterback.
