Is there such a thing as "excessive passing" in today's NFL? If so, what is the benchmark for excessive passing?

Of course. We would all agree that 0% passing is too little and 100% is too much, or "excessive". The real question is at what level is it too much and there is no consensus. Take a look at various posters on this site and there is a healthy variety of opinion on this subject. For me, I draw the line at around 60% for the season, not an individual game, for the season. Take a look at the history of Super Bowl winners and their season pass percentage. You will find very few teams have won the Super Bowl with a seasonal pass percentage over 60%. A couple have approached 60 but did not break it. The 60% line is a very good dividing line.

Individual games are different. There are numerous factors which may lead a team to pass for more than 60% in a game. Being behind by a large margin or late in the game would be cause. Also, taking advantage of an opponent with a weak secondary. The flow of the game will dictate the percentage.
