Current number: 261.
Needs: 39.

Hopefully he'll have his returning O-line...

He's also going a full year with these guys.
Ocho---------Welker--------Hernandez
Branch-------Edelman-------Gronkowski
Tate
Price

For the record if he can hit 300, he'll be tied for 5th with John Elway.

Does the 300 include playoffs? I think he'll be in the 35 TD range for the regular season, if it includes playoffs I think he'll have it

Pretty sure in the pros, post season stats dont count for records like that. Right?

He's up to 291 including playoffs.

Imo he needs to put up 300 this year if he wants to make a run at the top 3.

Voted no. He's only reached 39 TDs once in his career and that offense doesn't have the makings of their 2007 squad.

I wouldn't be too sure.

An improved offensive line.

A WR core consisting of Ochocinco, Branch, Tate, Welker, and Edelman.
as opposed to
In 07, when it was Moss, Gaffney, and Welker

His TEs Hernandez and Gronkowski(Throw in the rookie Lee Smith if you want), and also better than Watson was.

They also have an improved run game to take off some pressure.

I'd be surprised if he got 39 TDs this season. He's only ever thrown 30+ in a season twice (50 in 07 and 36 last year). The potential is there, but who knows. Also, playing in the elements in theory should hurt him, although the last two seasons he's played in snowstorms and put up crazy numbers (Ten in 09 Chi last year).

I could give two ****s to be honest. I'd like to see a playoff win.

The o-line comment is highly debatable. Last year, he gave up 4 more sacks in 86 fewer dropbacks than in 2007.

The 2007 version of Moss was light years ahead of anybody in the league and made the receiving corps. A washed up version of Ocho Cinco is nowhere near his equal. Welker still needs to show he can regain his pre-injury form, Branch is mediocre at best, Tate has yet to show he's anything more than a situational deep threat and Edelman is useless when Welker is in the lineup.

Moss >>>> Ochocinco
Welker >> Welker
Stallworth = Branch
Gaffney = Tate
The only way Edelman makes an impact is if Welker gets hurt, in which case 2007 Welker >> Edelman.

The TEs are better than they were in 2007, but not enough to offset the sizable drop in quality in the WRs.

Which isn't 39. Like all amazing seasons (and he was amazing last year), regardless of position, the odds of repeating them the next year are minuscule.

so he throws 36 last year with a team nothing like 2007 and you dont think he can get 3 more with the addition of chad and 1 year experience to gronk and hernandez?

you are wrong

I didn't say he can't. I said I don't think he will.

The odds of him playing as well this year as last are very low, as has been evidenced in NFL history at virtually every position. Unlike his 2007 supporting cast, which was so talented that it could've gotten him 39 TDs with him playing at his "normal" level, this year's group doesn't provide enough of an upside for him to reach that milestone.

He got 36 last year with a bunch of short white guys.

Im going with yes...42 TDs.
