The Buffalo Bills have had some great seasons, great teams, and great players over the years. There have been times when they were good at running the ball and times were they were definitely a passing team. Who though has had the most 3,000 yard passing seasons for the team?
It should come as no surprise that Jim Kelly has thrown for 3,000 yards in a season more times than any other Buffalo Bills quarterback. Kelly was able to pass that yearly yardage milestone eight times during his time with the team. This is far and away the most in team history, as the second place player on the list accomplished the feat only twice.
Longtime Bills quarterback Joe Ferguson threw for more than 3,000 yards in 1979 and then again in 1981. Other than Kelly, he is the only Bills quarterback to have more than one 3,000 yard season. In fact, Kelly and Ferguson combined for ten 3,000 yard seasons and the Bills organization has only had a total of 13 of them in their history. The three other quarterbacks with 3,000 yard seasons for the Bills are Drew Bledsoe, Doug Flutie, and J.P. Losman.
The Bills have had a good deal of success during their history, but this is just one more way of illustrating that Jim Kelly is by far the best quarterback the team has ever had.
