Favre Says Streak Won't Affect His Season

Brett Favre insists he won't let his durability streak hurt the Vikings.

Favre will make his 270th straight start when Minnesota plays at Cleveland on Sunday. That will match what the NFL considers the longest streak in history, held by former Vikings defensive lineman Jim Marshall from 1961-79.

Favre said Wednesday he "absolutely" would sit out this season if he's not healthy enough to suit up as Minnesota's quarterback. The 39-year-old also said he "may not" be able to play in all 16 regular-season games.

Favre said he was willing to sit last year with the New York Jets, and that he shared his concerns at the time with his coaches. His poor performance in December was due in part to his injured right arm.




Yeah, I'm not so sure I buy into this.  It's not just the streak, but Favre CAN NOT STAND to not be "the guy".  Unless something major happens to him, I would expect him to continue to try to play through injuries just like he always has.  I mean, it's nice to hear him say that he won't let his stubborness to play hurt the Vikings season, but I'll believe it when I see it.
