The Tennessee Titans franchise, formerly the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Oilers, have been around since 1960. The Tennessee Titans’ all-time passing yards leaders include two Hall of Famers from their Houston days and current Titans’ quarterback Vince Young.
5. Vince Young: 8,098 yards*
Current Titans’ quarterback and two-time Pro Bowler Vince Young is up to fifth on the list of Tennessee Titans’ all-time passing yards leaders. The Titans grabbed Young with the third pick of the 2006 NFL Draft. He has been the team’s primary starter for most of the last five seasons, averaging 150.0 passing yards per game with a 75.7 QB rating. A great deal of Young’s value is in his scrambling abilities and he is averaging 25.6 rushing yards per game with 12 TDs on the ground through 54 games and 39 starts.
4. Dan Pastorini: 16,864 yards
Former Pro Bowl quarterback Dan Pastorini started for the then Houston Oilers throughout the 1970s and remains one of the Tennessee Titans’ all-time passing yards leaders. As their first round pick in 1971, Pastorini immediately stepped into the starting job and averaged 134.9 passing yards per game through 1979. He twice led the Oilers to the AFC Championship game while throwing for more than 2,000 yards three times.
3. George Blanda: 19,149 yards
Hall of Fame QB and kicker George Blanda ranks third among the Tennessee Titans’ all-time passing yards leaders. Blanda played more seasons than anyone in NFL history and he is one of only seven players with more than 300 games played. He joined the Oilers in 1960 and spent his greatest seasons with them. Blanda earned three of his four Pro Bowl selections and his 1961 AFL MVP Award with the Oilers. He led the league in passing yards in 1961 and 1963 and he totaled 26,920 yards and 236 touchdowns in the air in his 26-year NFL career. On top of his brilliant work as a passer, Blanda kicked 335 field goals and an NFL record 943 extra points.
2. Steve McNair: 27,141 yards
The late three-time Pro Bowl quarterback Steve McNair finished second on the Tennessee Titans’ all-time passing yards leaders list. McNair was one of football’s most talented all-around players in his prime, leading the Titans to their first Super Bowl appearance in 1999 and winning the 2003 NFL MVP Award. With McNair at the helm, the Oilers/Titans posted a 76-55 win-loss record from 1995 to 2005. He threw for more than 3,000 yards six times while rushing for more than 300 an additional six times. McNair tossed 156 touchdown passes during his tenure and his 36 rushing touchdowns also rank in the Titans’ all-time top five. He threw for a total of 31,304 passing yards in the NFL.
1. Warren Moon: 33,685 yards
The Tennessee Titans’ all-time passing yards leader is recently inducted Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon.
