Two undersized, undervalued quarterbacks. Both were considered great guys, laid back and the perfect gentlemen.
Both dreamed of big time college football programs. Unitas went to Louisville, and Brees went to Purdue. Both are in the record books tied for what is considered football's greatest record...47 straight games with a passsing TD which has stood for 52 years.
Many broadcasters this week are comparing it to Joe Dimaggio's 56 straight gmae hitting streak in baseball.
Favre had 36, Marino 30, Manning 27. Sunday night might be 48 for Drew Brees, alone at the top of another NFL QB record.
Is this the greatest record in football? Who catches the 1st TD of the game which sets the record? Will the record even be set or will Brees have redemption on the team who gave up on him? Could the record be something the team could feed on and get back on track this season?
