    "Records are meant to be broken"

    Legacies are remembered

    Only player that comes to mind where I've seen people questionably bring into the GOAT conversation based on bloated Era: Calvin Johnson. Watched him as athletic freak in the ACC. Know the story.

    But no he's not even Top10 on my list. Longevity vs Championship moments

    Wgaf. Eyeball tests plus championships are usually how we define greatness rankings when we're in a sports bar discussion

    I don't care. It's never been acknowledged before. Seasons have ranged from 10 games to 17 games. From 1961-1977, it was 14 games.

    Think the only time this is going to be newsy is on the well known / mass media records.
    Most rushing yds season.
    Passing yds season.
    TDs season.

    Considering it's a 6.25% increase in potential games played, it definitely has to be accounted for when looking at single-season stats. Just look at the actual Games Played column, though - not everyone plays the last week, and most NFL players miss some time with injuries anyway.

    The changes in rules greatly favoring offenses have had a much bigger affect on offensive records than adding one game.

    Yeah, but offense is overall down this year as teams have adapted to the pass pretty well. More teams are running again.

    yeah, but the numbers are a joke compared to 20-30 years ago unless you think Derek Carr is as good Montana and Steve Young

    I agree and I don't like it at all but it was worse in 2011 for instance when experts thought running was literally going the way of the dodo.

    At least it's still watchable unlike the NBA where defense literally doesn't have a chance and 127-114 scoring games are the norm. When I was growing up that was an extreme exception and Steve Nash was most likely playing in that specific type of a game. Now it's just stupid. Even in the pick up games it's spread like cancer. Everyone wants to be lazy and pull up for three like Stefanie Carry instead of taking it to the hole like MJ or Iverson. I just can't with basketball anymore. Football is still salvageable. The NBA can start by reducing the quarters to like 8 or 9 minutes instead of 12. The scores would be back to 90s-00s normal that way and the players' union and refs' unions would like it because less fatigue and the fans would like it because shorter games without shortening the season; I think it'd be a victory for everybody.
