Impressive to say the least. It is unlikely to ever be broken. Along with being a "Iron Man" you need a whole lot of luck to accomplish that in the game of football. Peyton Manning is now the new record holder at 200 games, he would need to start every game for the next 6 years.

After 297 consecutive starts over 19 seasons, one of the greatest individual streaks in all of sports, Brett Favre ran into an injury he couldn't beat and sat down.

The 41-year-old Vikings quarterback who fought through broken bones, aches, pains and personal grief to play week after week, couldn't make it for the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night. Favre was sidelined by a throwing shoulder too damaged for even him to overcome.

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

After watching last night's game, I now know that Farve is offically brain dead. He's lucky he wasn't maimed.........

What's really crazy is that 297 doesn't include playoffs and SB's. It's something like 330 when you include them.
