Just like that, it's over


    DETROIT -- Brett Favre's record consecutive starts streak ended at 297 on Monday when he did not suit up for the Minnesota Vikings' game against the New York Giants.

    The streak, dating back to 1992, ended because of a right shoulder injury the quarterback sustained on Minnesota's first series Dec. 5 against Buffalo.

    Jeff Anderson, a Vikings spokesman, announced to the public that the 41-year-old Favre was inactive on Twitter: "Vikings Inactives -- 12, 19, 25, 31, 76, 90, 91...and 4. The streak ends..."

    The Vikings hoped Favre, who has started despite a broken foot and elbow tendinitis this season, could do it again when the Giants game was delayed from Sunday after the Metrodome roof collapsed. That forced the game to be moved to Ford Field, but it was not enough time for Favre to get healthy enough to play.


Now begins the countdown to when Peyton Manning breaks it and goes 300+.

Yeah, that has to be a typo. They must've meant ages 30 or 20, since there are millions of 40-year-old NFL fans that can remember the pre-Favre era.

Say what you will about Favre, but this is truly one incredible streak.

Don Majkowski was over the line when he threw that ball.

Au contraire, mon ami. 3:03 mark here. Even better retrospective starts @ 3:56 (from a Lambeau DVD I've got.)

Packers OWN Da Bears, especially on Monday night. (Although not as strongly as during the Holmgren Era.) Y'know, it's kinda funny...being in the Bears' locker room at Lambeau after last year's game up here (being in the media rules, BTW)
