Brett Favre is considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time.
Brett is the only player to become the MVP three consecutive years (1995-1997). He has been honored with 11 Pro Bowl (NFL Record) selections (1992, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009), while becoming the NFC’s MVP five times (1995, 1996, 1997, 2002, and 2007).
He led the Packers to seven division championships (1995, 1996, 1997, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2007), four NFC Championship Games (1995, 1996, 1997 and 2007), and won two (1996 and 1997).
Favre has also reached the Super Bowl twice (XXXI & XXXII) during his career, winning Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots.
Favre was named to the NFL’s 1990’s All-Decade Team.
He holds many NFL records that include: Most career touchdown passes, most career passing yards, most career passing attempts, most career passing completions, most consecutive starts, most career victories, and his least favorite, most career interceptions.
Since first being named the starter of the Green Bay Packers before playing the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 27, 1992, Brett Favre has never missed a game. He is currently in first place for the most consecutive starts by a quarterback in the NFL and one of only five quarterbacks to have started over 100 consecutive games in NFL history.
In 2009, Favre surpassed Jim Marshall for starts at any position with his record-breaking 271st start as a quarterback as the Vikings played the Lions. Favre has started in 285 consecutive starts as a quarterback (309 including playoffs).
The consecutive starts streak is widely considered one of the most notable streaks in sports, so much so that the Pro Football Hall of Fame has as an exhibit displaying the jersey Favre wore during his record breaking 117th consecutive start as a quarterback, and a section of their website devoted to what the Hall of Fame calls an "Iron Man".
Favre is the only quarterback to have led a team to victory over all thirty-two teams in the league since the NFL first expanded to 32 franchises.
Brett Favre has accumulated 69,329 passing yards for 497 touchdowns in 19 seasons.
