Bout Damn Time: Old Azz Brett Favre’s Consecutive Game Streak FINALLY Comes To An End

- By Bossip Staff

The last few years of Brett Favre career has been like a sequel of ‘Final Destination’. Seems like injuries and personal conflict continue to chase him down in hopes that he’ll sit out a game and end what might be the greatest streak in professional sports history of 297 consecutive football games started dating back to 1991.

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…”

The Vikings hoped Favre, who has started despite a broken foot and elbow tendinitis this season, could do it again when the game against the New York Giants was delayed from Sunday after the Metrodome roof collapsed. That forced the game to be moved to Ford Field, but it was not enough time for Favre to get healthy enough to play.

It was a good run Brett, just chill though. You’ve taken Tavaris Jackson off the field for long enough now. Tip your hat and walk off into the sunset in your Wrangler jeans like the country a** cowboy that you are.

    Bret is the man. I wish he could have made the 300 games. O well he is still a legend

    Congrats to him. It was a one of a kind run. You won a Super Bowl (most don’t get that chance), raked up on enough records to kill a cow, and managed to not die on the field like 300. I just felt sorry for him to go out like that. He should have went out with the team that loved him and that is the Packers.


    simply amazing the greatest streak i would think in any contact sport ever and i cant see it being beaten.

    i like Brett, its sad to see so many opponents deliberately hurt him for no reason, just goes to show how big their insecurities are.
