MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The record is his, for now, and Brett Favre can return his focus on two other numbers: 4-0.To hear him tell it over and over, this is all he has ever worried about: helping Green Bay win.
|Wins as starter||151||Favre|
|Passing yards||58,705||Dan Marino, 61,361|
|Interceptions||275||George Blanda, 277|
|*Marino previously held (420); **Marino previously held (8,358)|
Don't let Brett Favre's record-setting touchdown pass overshadow just how well he is playing and just how important he is to a young Green Bay team. Favre's enthusiasm and passion for the game far surpass that of any of his teammates, and his command of the offense in his second year in the system is exceptional. He directs traffic with the best of them, doesn't fear pressure and is deadly accurate in compromising positions, such as throwing off his back foot.
Favre is getting everyone who is eligible involved as a pass catcher. He did all of this and more Sunday on the road in a hostile environment, and even though the running game was nonexistent, Favre stayed patient, audibled into the correct plays, and used slants, screens, dump-offs and short crossing patterns to consistently move the ball against Minnesota's two-deep zone.
