Hey guys. I'll try keep this post short and sweet.
NFL Records, to some, are a big deal. No reason they shouldn't. The best of high school play college, which whom very few make the NFL, and to set records at THAT level, is something spectacular. We, as Peyton Manning fans, should know this. To set a game record, or a season record is one thing. But to hold an NFL alltime record, one you've been chipping away at for 15+ YEARS (almost as long as I've been ALIVE) it becomes a big part of you.
Now, here's the meat of the post. Brett Favre, the record holder for most consecutive games, might have to miss a game. Since he's still considering playing, and not ruled out, you know his injuries are not THAT bad. That being said, would you guys see it as wrong, or have a problem with him just playing a few drives, or heck just taking 1 snap to hold the record, then sitting out?
Please don't be biased. Don't think that because it's a QB you might not like or a record we want Peyton to break, you want him to not play. Picture if Peyton gets minorly injured(relax, I just knocked on wood) and he can still play, but chooses not to (say we're 13-2 with playoffs locked up) we would not have an issue with him playing 1 drive just to keep his own streak.
So, please no bias. Since he's played through almost 2 decades to have this record, would you guys have an issue with him taking 1 or 2 snaps just to preserve it?
1 more thing, This is for 1 game. If he needs to be out for a month, don't do it. That I'm against. This is ONLY if the injury is for 1 game..
