Streaks Are Meant To End – Records Are Meant To Be Broken

For the first time since September 27,1992 Brett Favre will be on the bench with a clip board in hand watching his team play. Tonight when the Minnesota Vikings play the New York Giants, Favre will not have an active role on the field.

Favre’s record, excluding play off games, is a starting quarterback for 297 consecutive games over 19 seasons. That streak ends tonight,leaving a new NFL record to be broken.

Unlike Baseball’s iron man Cal Ripken who chose to sit out a game, Favre was forced to sit out tonight after taking a vicious hit from Buffalo linebacker Arthur Moats just three snaps into the Viking – Bills game.

Regardless of opinions formed about Favre over these last few seasons it is time to just look at what he has done, 297 consecutive regular season games, amazing.

What makes Favre’s accomplishment so rare is the average NFL career spans less than 4 years, yet Favre lasted 19 seasons.

To put more perspective on this Peyton Manning is the current player with most consecutive starts behind #4. Manning has 205 starts and could catch Favre in 2016.

But has anyone played the position with the passion and flare Brett has exhibited through out his career? How many times have we seen BF take off running to get that first down, take on linebackers head on instead of sliding. How many times have we seen him get off the turf battered and beaten with torn muscles, concussions and broken bones only to start the following week.

Former Detroit Lions defensive tackle and football great Alex Karras once said quarterbacks should where a skirt in the backfield. Karras never met Favre at least on the gridiron. Karras was a 4 time pro bowler who also made the 1960s all NFL team who played from 1958 to 1970.

Tonight marks the passing of an era the Brett Favre consecutive starts streak leaving new record to be broken. I dont know if it will be Manning or some one else, I just hope it is some one who has the same passion for football and the same flare that belongs to the once invincible Brett Favre.
