Are there records for a qb who has rushed for the most yards? If so, Watson may be in the hunt for most rushing and passing yards. What about career tds? Watson has close to 150 career tds already with a year to go. Good kid too. With one of the smoothest jumpers you will ever see. Its almost not fair!

Barring an injury, Watson could finish his career with 12,000/4,000 and over 200 tds. Has anyone ever won POY twice?

Watson has 140 career TD’s breaking Dwight Dasher’s record of 119.
He also has approximately 11,151 total yards for career. He’s on his way to shattering career records for passing yds, td passes,total yards and passing yards for the state of Ga.
At his current pace he’ll have over 200 td’s,12,000 passing yds and 15,000 total yards.
