Unitas' record is impressive b/c he played in an era where they were throwing the ball probably 30 times tops. Now Brady and Brees routinely gets 40+ pass attempts.

Actually they threw 10-15 times tops in a game during those times. 30 is way too high brah. I read somewhere that Unitas threw 2 TDs in one of games in his streak in which he only had 7 pass attempts.

Wrong.

Check out Unitas' game log from 1960, which is the earliest year listed on Pro Football Reference

In the game that ended the streak, he attempted 38 passes

That may be true for some guys but absolutely not true for Unitas. In 1960 he averaged more then 30 attempts per game.

EDIT: Did some more research and Unitas attempted about 28 passes per game during his streak.
