    Forgot about this record. Knowing Farve he wants to break it. I still think if he wins the Super Bowl he is done.

    Re: Jim Marshall hopes his ironman record falls to Brett Favre

    Wasn't there a kicker a punter a couple of years ago that was close?
    What happened to him?
    Maybe his team didn't punt a game and he missed out?

    For all the purple that surrounded him, I always have admired Marshall, such a class act he seems to be.

    To be honest, I hope he keeps that record on the books, the way he played, it deserves the mark.

    I've been saying for years that Marshall acts like he took one-too-many blows to the head.
    This clinches it.

    Jeff Feagles, and, no, he hasn't missed a game.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Feagles

    On November 27, 2005, Feagles broke the NFL record for consecutive games played, with 283. The record was previously held by Minnesota Vikings lineman Jim Marshall who played from 1960 to 1979. His record continues, standing at 304 at the beginning of the 2007 NFL season.

    Through the end of Week 15 of the 2007 NFL regular season, Feagles holds the following NFL records:

    Most consecutive games played, career: 318 (streak still active)
    Most punts, career: 1,578
    Most punts inside the 20, career: 506
    Most punting yards, career: 65,523
    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    What a Traitor....
    You know a sports fan can love the sport and appreciate what other players do on other teams and not be considered a traitor.

    I kindof lump this in with the guys who were willing to throw Thigpen under the bus cause he dared to admire Lord Favrrrrrrreeeee.
    Kindof silly isn't it?

    As much as I despise Lord Favrrrrrreeee I can appreciate what he has not only achieved but what he has done for the game.

    I kindof put it in this priority:

    a.
    The Vikings as a whole. ( I never try to put a player on a pedastal cause he will eventually dissapoint me or get old and leave.
    Its all about the team and whats the best for it.)
    b.
    The Game.
    I love this game for what it is.
    The ultimate team sport.
    Hockey is close but still, nothing better than a good game regardless of who plays.

    c.
    The NFL organization.
    Without it we (the fans) wouldn't have the game, the teams, and the players.
    d.
    Last but not least, Achievements.
    Whether that be individual achievements or team achievements I kindof like them.
    Don't care who has them, but still like them.
    Think of it like baseball fans.
    Alot of purests only live for the stats and nothing more.

    Somewere in there I put the fans and the players.

    Long story short, I love the game for what it is and cherish special moments, achievements etc by other teams and players than the Vikes.


    Does that make me a traitor?
    Very sad my friends if you think so.
    :'(
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    That's BS though. He's a punter. Marshall was a defensive tackle. I remember reading that in one season he played with two broken hands and pneumonia.
