Could Favre break record at the Metrodome?

Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre is four touchdown passes away from breaking Dan Marino's record of 420.

Favre faces the San Diego Chargers this Sunday at Lambeau Field, and then he heads to the Metrodome. Both the Chargers and Vikings have excellent defenses, but it's not far-fetched to think Favre could throw four touchdowns in the two games.

Marino thought that record was safe, but he always figured there was one player who could break it.

“I really didn’t think anybody would get to it, but I knew that the one guy out there who could probably reach that level of 420 would be Brett Favre," Marino said. "Not only his ability as a great quarterback, but the durability he has, just the ability to play each and every week, is pretty amazing.”

When I saw the title of this article, I assumed it was talking about the OTHER record Favre might break at the dome. Going into week 3, he only needs 2 more INTERCEPTIONS to set the ALL-TIME INTERCEPTION RECORD!

Who cares if he break this record!. I hope he breaks his leg, but not before he breaks the most interception records first.

Brett Favre is the Woody Allen of the NFL... some great great moments... but also a few hideous blemishes that nobody really wants to talk about.

Everyone is a critic. The success of the Packers over that past decade plus is no accident. Brett is a class act and someone that cheers for a team full of criminals and underachievers often love to ridicule. Can't you find anything better to talk about than someone who is a role model that the vICKINGS could learn from? Minnesota sports need to learn one thing, ( I am an avid Twins fan) which is when competing, mediocrity is not success. This whole Minnesota nice crap needs to end. i.e. Dig in your pockets and make a trade when you have what should have been one of the best teams in the league. (Twins over the summer)Sometimes looking for the "nice" guys to fill your line-up won't work. To get back to the Vikings, they are just a sad excuse they need to have more of a go for it on 4th and 1 mentality.

If we're talking about crimes, I have no problem with consenting adults, ah, consenting on a boat. In my jurisdiction, what transpired wouldn't be a crime.

I have a real problem with sexually assaulting children. Did you wear your Mark Chmura, Favre's one-time best friend, jersey while typing your post, RSO?

Favre is an all-time great quarterback, but he has clearly regressed. The elephant in the room is that he is making $13 million a season as he keeps playing. Ted Thompson cannot cut Favre, but every off-season move that he's made seems to be an attempt to push Favre out the door. So let's not pretend that Favre is goodness incarnate while the Vikings are a penal colony.

The words "Favre" and "class" should never be used in the same sentence, unless that sentence is "Brett Favre has absolutely no class at all."

We're talking about a guy that thought it would be cute to take a dive so his buddy could set the single-season sack record. . .another mark that needs to have an * next to it.

The same Favre that would look down at his hand and grimace in pain after every stupid INT, yet seemed to magically recover every time he threw a TD pass.

The great thing about all of Favre's "great records" is that, with the exception of the INT record, Peyton Manning is going to absolutely destroy everything Favre's ever done, and do so with far my class and integrity than ol' Brett ever had.

More Favre bashing!!!!

Ol number 4 should get an academy award for all of his acting over the years, he may be in line for a life time achievement award at this point.

We'll se how good these Packers are this weekend and next, until then ESPN, Fox, CBS and the rest can continue to drink the Green and Yellow cool-aid.

Favre better get the money while he can, I don’t see any of the major networks looking for a slackjawed hick to give insight on Sundays. Terry Bradshaw already has that role perfected.
