    Well, i was just watching NFL Network and they said Brett's only a few picks shy of setting the all-time record for interceptions (in a career). :rubeyes:

    on the bright side woodson broke his own record on ints in one season.

    i think he will break it by the end of the season, but i dont think favre really cares about that record that much.

    7 to tie...8 to break it...he has 270 right now, and George Bland holds the all-time record with 277.

    GEORGE BLANDA holds this record at 277 interceptions and I don't mind at all if Brett breaks it. Why you ask ?

    Not to knock Blanda but to put things in perspective George's TD total when his career ended was 236 Total, Brett is already over 400 ( 413 ) I believe. Combine this with all the other records Brett has broken and / or is extending and this INT record may be significant to some but not to me.

    Link to todays records Brett broke and is extending below:

    Very good points!!! I just found it suprising that he has thrown that many in his career. This was the first i had heard of that record.

    Somebody send Blanda's stats to Brett.

    Perhaps Brett will take note that some say George's best year came with the Raidahhs in 1970 at the age of 43.

    Thanks bsmith_501, I would not worry about this record, just have yourself a good arguement ready for all the Packer Bashers who "will" throw this record in your face and at the same time fail to mention all the other Brett records that have come with this one. Cheers friend !!!

    Well, I was going to say Brett should play two more years after this. Now it's clear that Brett needs to play until he's 43 then. :towel:

    If you look at all the bums Brett has thrown to, I'm surprised that he doesn't already own the record. Even today, how many drops did our receivers have? For gosh sakes it's hard to win games when your receivers can't hold on to the ball. Even that interception in the end zone when Brett threw into coverage with four defenders there, if Martin comes to the ball, if he doesn't make the catch at the very least he breaks it up.

    I listened to the game on the Lions broadcast and I think there were six dropped ones, including a dropped TD by D Martin, a dropped TD by Lee, and one Green dropped that got intercepted. Favre wasn't on today, don't get me wrong, but his stats would have been completely different had those 2 TDs been caught, because both of them were followed by INTs.

    Let's pretend both TEs caught the TDs that were right in their hands. These would be the new stats:
    22 COM 37 ATT 194 YDS 2 TDs 1 INT

    Still, not wonderful, but acceptable.

    Great post..totally agree... :thumbsup:

    There's alot more involved out there then just the stats. Players have to make plays..

    There's only so many opportunities to do so during a game...

    And hey, they won today. So...take it for what it is...

    As long as Brett is rewriting the record book, he might as well break all the records.

    Drops are apart of the game. Granted they don't make it easier but you can't throw poor passes because guys dropped the ball.
