    If Brett throws 3 more interceptions he will reach a career milestone with 250 career interceptions!

    Anyone know the NFL record? It says 81 by Paul Krause is the record..

    He's also closing in on John Elway in fumbles. Elway leads him by 9 fumbles, and fumbled third most in NFL history.

    I'd still take Brett over weak arm Orton and Rex "Fragile" Glassman.

    If Orton actually throws another touchdown, HE WILL ALSO REACH A MILESTONE! He will be only the 32nd starter in this league to throw for double-digit touchdown passes. Be more concerned for the QB of your team, rather than the QB of the Pack.

    P.S.

    If Favre never wins another SB ring, he's still got more than Orton, Glassman, and Marino Combined :twisted:

    George Blanda of the Chicago Bears and many other teams holds the record for interceptions thrown in a career with 277.
    Of course he played till he was about 50.

    Brett Favre career is amazing. he is the best all around Packer QB in team history. In his career starting in 1991 he has thrown 7463 passes completed 4592 passes-Completion average .615 for 52,725 yards-7.1 yard ave per completion---Inteceptions 247 --Intereception average 3.2% --Passing TD 395--and has started in over 200 NFL games straight-By far a record for starting quarterbacks in NFL. He has never missed starting for Green Bay since becoming Packer starting quarterback in 1992.--His career longest pass is for TD 99 yards other passes for 85td, 84td, 80td, 79td. Brett is a 3 time MVP and will someday be a first ballot Hall of Famer and will be enshrined in NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Oh! Favre has been the presiding QB over Packer teams that have had a 13 year record (since 1992)of 138 wins - 82 losses-two Super Bowl appearences, winning one and the team has been in 20 postseason appearences. Packers have won the NFC-North three years in a row. and from 1992 until 2004 did not have a losing season. Packers have had the best winning record of any NFL franchise during the period between 1993 and 2004. As Mike Vandermause in commentary "Favre bashers need to wake up" at end of his commentary in the Green Bay Press-Gazette Saturday, 12/10/05 issue--quote "My advice to the Favre bashers is simple: Sit back and enjoy every playing moment left for the most talented quaterback ever to suit up in the Packer uniform" unquote-- I, P.W.T. say Amen to that, is all that I can add of that statement by Mike Vandermause . And I, a long time Packer fan has seen ever Packer Quarterback play since Tobin Rote in early 50's.

    Favre bashers need to wake up

    Would all the hysterical fans and media members ripping Brett Favre this week kindly take a deep breath and get a grip?

    Granted, Favre had a rough game in a gut-wrenching loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday. In fact, Favre has endured a stretch of six games in which he has thrown just five touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

    Because of Favre’s recent struggles, some have concluded it’s time for backup Aaron Rodgers to finish out an already hopeless 2-10 season.

    That would be a bad move for Rodgers, who as a rookie isn’t ready to be thrown to the wolves and could suffer a serious blow to his confidence.

    Patient with Palmer

    Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer was the No. 1 overall pick in the draft in 2003 and didn’t play a down as a rookie. That patient approach is paying off handsomely as Palmer has emerged as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in his third season.

    Beyond that, Favre isn’t ready to be shipped to the glue factory. Those who want to blame him for the Packers’ lousy record aren’t paying attention.

    Favre is the primary reason the Packers have remained competitive. Without him, the injury-depleted Packers would be getting blown out instead of staying in contention in every game.

    At 36, Favre’s arm is as strong as ever, and his mobility is better than it’s been in years. He gives the Packers their best chance to turn things around quickly next season, assuming he doesn’t listen to the blockheads who want to see him retire.

    Favre’s gunslinger mentality gets him in trouble and leads to costly interceptions at times, but it’s that same mind-set that produces jaw-dropping completions and awe-inspiring touchdown passes. He will one day enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame because he’s not afraid to make things happen.

    No supporting cast

    Favre has been forced to carry a heavier load on offense this season, which helps explain his league-leading interception total. Would Peyton Manning, surrounded by a cast of fifth-string running backs, fourth-string receivers, third-string tight ends and second-string guards, be doing much better? I think not.

    Some ill-informed observers believe Favre isn’t held accountable for his mistakes. Coach Mike Sherman and his assistants wisely don’t berate Favre on the sideline after an interception, but the quarterback’s miscues are reviewed every week at practice and in the film room.

    For those who believe former Packers coach Mike Holmgren kept a tighter leash on Favre, please explain the 1998 season, when Favre suffered through a six-game stretch in which he threw 15 interceptions.

    No one accused Holmgren of letting Favre off easy then, and no one suggested Favre was out of control.

    My advice to the Favre bashers is simple: Sit back and enjoy every playing moment left for the most talented quarterback ever to suit up in a Packers uniform.

    Thank You Yogi for trying to making to make Favre look bad. If it were not for the pathetic attempts like this, then the more informed posters like IPBprez and PWT36 would not have had to blow you out of the water in threads like this concerning how great Favre has been for this team.

    Curly Bear- What Favre has accomplished in his long career with Green Bay is a fact. Yes Favre had career interception rate of 3.2% and Morino of Patriots for many years had a interception rate of 3.0. Would your Bears like to have a QB like Favre for the last 13 years?. The Bear team has had at least 26 forgetable QBs since 1992 when Brett Favre became starting QB for GB. The last Bear QB I can remember who was good was Jim McMahon during the Super Bowl year and he had one of the best defense in NFL history helping him out. No QB in history is perfect. No packer fan is disputing his gunsliggimg approach to Quarterbacking the GB Packers. We are pointing out what he accomplished doing it. Your placed this post about Favre's interceptions to demean him while this team is having a down year. There are many other reasons for the Packers to have a down year. Without Favre at Qb this year, the performance of the packer team would have been much worse. There would have been many "blowouts"which is what usually happens when team is 2-10!! Do we wish Favre would have thrown less interceptions during his career. Of coarse, yes!! If he wouldn't have, would the Packers have a better better term. maybe and may be not. he took chances and many times it workout for him and the Packers won especially at Soldier Field against the Bears from 1992 until 2004. If he would not have took those chances, there is a good chance the Packers would not have won as many games as they did for the last 13 years. When you look at a career of of a man, you look at whole body of his work, you don't pick and choose. When you look at Brett's whole career, Brett Favre is 3 time MVP and a future Hall of Famer and the best all around QB in Packer. You should forget coming on packerforum with a lame post like "Favre's milestone-Interceptions" no knowledgeable Packer fan will "buy it".

    This FACT.. may be true - but tell us again...

    "How many Quarterbacks has "your" Team gone thru since 1992?"

    "Who is it that "owns" ALL of the records at the NEW Soldier Field?"

    CB Radio ham operator speaks out - "Come Back....."

    Thought it was great that he did take over the lead as the only QB to have 14 straight seasons with 3,000 + yards beating out Marino who has 13. Impressive considering Marino got to play 8 games a year in Florida, not Wisconsin.

    In regards to Palmer...did anyone else see his postgame interview after the Browns game? He's wearing the same orange-ish golf cap that Brett wears. Whats up with that Carson?

    A lot of QB's get yanked before they have the opportunity to throw 250 INT's.
    When your tough and play a long time you have high numbers in everything.
    238 straight starts and still love the game is amazing.
    I think he still has an MVP and Superbowl appearance yet to come.
