Favre owns a number of NFL records including touchdown passes (508), passing yards (71,838), pass completions (6,300), pass attempts (10,169), pass interceptions (336), starts by a player (298), and wins by a starting quarterback (186). He also has achieved a number of firsts including being the only quarterback to have won three consecutive NFL MVP awards, the only quarterback to defeat all 32 NFL franchises, and the only quarterback to win a playoff game over the age of forty.
Favre's legacy may be best known for his consecutive starts streak of 297 games (321 including playoffs) which 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".
