NFL  > Minnesota Vikings  > Does it end tonight?
December 13, 2010, 03:42 PM
Let's face it, like him or not, tonight could be historic, if he does not start the streak ends.

I really did like him at one time but all the ESPN induced drama over the last few years has totally soured me on him,
yet
you cannot ignore the accomplishment, highly unlikely any of us will live long enough to see the streak matched and with today's game being what it is, no player will even try.

Almost 17 seasons with over 30 playoff games, truly remarkable.

No matter if "the streak" continues tonight or not congratulations are in order.

It kind of sucks for Brett, though, that there's a generation of people that may not have ever watched him earlier in his career, and that those folks are going to judge him for what has transpired over the past three seasons...kind of a shame, but he has also buttered his own bread here.

Yeah, there are those that will argue that he has not damaged his "legacy," and for the most part they are right. America suffers from a short attention span. However, there are those that missed the young gunslinger in action, the MVP-years, etc. and have only been bombarded with all the "drama." It sucks that that is how they will remember him, if they do at all.

thats a good comment LCB, he had a hall of fame career and has turned it into a joke, drama queen, whatever type of career these last few years.

Favre still is the all time leading QB in wins, Td's, passing Yd's and consecutive starts.

That's why, for the most part, his legacy is won't suffer too badly. Besides, in 5 years people will largely have forgiven him for all the shenanigans--as long as he stays out of the NFL media circus until he gets to the Hall.

QUOTE(#17):

Manning should break the record by mid 2016, so we might live long enough to see it broken. He hasn't missed a game in 13 years, so why would he miss one in the next five? Oh yeah, injury. Possible, but I think he'll break the record. It's not hard to envision Manning playing until he's 40, which he will be in 2016. He's healthy and his level of preparation is well known. And the NFL should have 18 game seasons pretty soon, too, which could help and hurt Manning's chances. More games per year, but more chance to break down in an extended season. Like Favre, it's hard to keep Manning off the field, and I wouldn't bet against him breaking that record.

As he gets older he gets more fragile, what is a minor injury at a young age can be a big problem when he is older.

I don't thing Favre's record will be broken--ever. I don't' think Emmitt Smiths yardage will be broken --ever. No RBs will last as long or accumulate the yards in today's pass happy NFL. Also the league discovered that RBs are cheaper by the dozen and having young ones with low contracts are a better financial idea.

even weirder is if he doesn't play again this year then who is the guy who caught his last pass...? One for the trivia books a few years down the line.
