The congratulations by Berman impressed me the most. While I don’t generally look for approval in anything canadian from americans I thought it was a really class move by Berman to talk about Calvillo in his two minute drill and to congratulate him for breaking the record it really shows that ESPN is about all sports not just american ones.
I looked up the stats to see who the next closest guys are to Calvillo in the passing yardage category among active players and the record look like it will stand for quite a while. Here’s the top 4 active players behind Calvillo:
Peyton Manning 54, 828 yards
Henry Burris 41, 376 yards
Kerry Collins 40, 922 yards
Ricky Ray 39, 150 yards
Realistically Manning is the only one with a shot at the record and he may very well get it if he plays into his early 40s. Burris would need to play well into his 40s to have a shot at it as would Collins. Ray would need at least 8 years to get to Calvillo’s numbers. So if Manning retires without the record we likely won’t see this record go away for quite a while
