    I stand corrected by a Green Bay Packer fan. I'm gonna go kill myself now.
    Ouch my friend.

    Re: The Favre intercetion & fumble tracker

    Yes even in Packerland the sun came up this morning and well the rain fell per usual for the last about 2 weeks.

    Anyway.. yes Brett tied the record.. but good ole Peter King brought up a couple of facts about the INT record..

    Fun facts about the all-time interception co-leader, George Blanda, and the man who just tied Blanda's career record of 277 interceptions:

    • Blanda threw 277 interceptions in 4,077 career passes. Favre has 277 interceptions in 8,433 attempts.

    • Blanda played in an era where the interception was a way of life in the old AFL. Imagine this: In 1962, he threw one interception per each 9.95 attempts -- 42 picks in 418 throws. In Favre's worst interception year, 2005, he threw one interception each 20.93 throws -- 29 in 607 attempts.

    • Blanda played in four decades (1949-75) and over six presidential administrations -- Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford -- and he was only a year from playing after a seventh president, Jimmy Carter, was elected.

    • Blanda's career touchdown-to-interception ratio was minus-41. Favre is now plus-146.

    • Blanda's career completion percentage: .477. Favre's: .612.
    Then I did a little digging to compare Fran to Brett...

    Fran


    266 INTS

    6467 Attempts or A pick every 24.3 Passes

    Brett

    277 INTS 8433 Attempts or A pick every 30.4 Passes

    Okay now bring the era debate into the thread
    ;D

    I saw that.

    Just without digging out any numbers, I urge you to think about if that doesn't also means something to his positive records.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Fran
    342 TDS 6467 Att 18.9 per attempt

    57% Completion

    Brett
    423 TDS 8433 Att

    19.9 per attempt

    61% Completion

    Rather close in numbers.. passing the ball.. no comparison running it however.

    But in this case, Brett vs. Fran... Brett overall better numbers and win percentage.

    So continue on tracking the Favre picks, but don't forget the one great QB in Viking history is only a few behind in fewer games and attempts.

    Favre is like a kid out there.


    He cries after every loss or significant win.

    He's realizing his time is coming to an end.

    Re: The Favre intercetion & fumble tracker

    Who is in charge of this thread anyway?

    I was watching the highlights, and they said that the Skins had a chance to get 5 picks.
    They showed Taylor drop 2 and get one.

    Skins should have beat them.
    Another lucky Pack performance lead by the INT king himself.

    Re: The Favre intercetion & fumble tracker

    watching the highlights but obviously didn't watch the game, correct? Skins should not have beaten them, actually. Packers had 2 TD's taken away because of terrible officiating by the refs. They called a phantom hold on Tauscher on a Favre TD to Jones, and then he threw another TD later in the game(which would have iced it) to Franks in the corner of the EZ. He had one foot down and might have gotten his other foot in, if only he wasn't forced out of the EZ. Should have been a TD on a forceout
