Brett Favre is now the record holder for the most touchdown passes in a career after passing Dan Marino. He’s also known as the Ironman of football because he hasn’t missed a game in centuries (well, it just seems that long), but there is more to Favre – let’s take a look at some facts about Brett Favre’s career.
The fewest TD passes Favre has thrown in a year is 18 and he’s done it twice, his first season in Green Bay, and then the disastrous 2006 season.
Since coming to Green Bay in 1992 from the Atlanta Falcons and through the 2006 season Brett has never thrown for less than 3,000 yards in a year. In fact, his lowest total of yards he’s thrown for is 3,227… again, that was in his first year with the team.
Through 2006, Brett Favre has thrown for more than 30 touchdowns in a season in more than half the seasons (8 out of 15) that he has quarterbacked the Packers.
In the first 7 seasons as quarterback for Green Bay, Brett ran for 11 touchdowns – in the next 8 seasons he only ran for 2.
From 1992 to 2005, 14 seasons, Brett Favre was always in the top ten in touchdown passes.
Brett Favre, truly an all-time great and certain first ballot hall-of-famer. Congratulations Brett!
But, let’s end this with a humorous Brett Favre stat…
