Favre football for sale immediately after streak ends by Susan Lulgjuraj

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

Brett Favre’s consecutive games started streak ended on Monday night when the long-time veteran and future Hall of Famer was inactive for the first time in 297 games.

Favre has been a starting quarterback in the league since 1992, longer than some Minnesota Vikings fans have been alive.
Favre didn’t waste any time in promoting the streak.

There is an official signed football with “297 starts 1992-2010” already being sold on for $499.99.

Football’s Ironman hasn’t signed any of the footballs yet. This is only for a pre-sale and the item should be available in 30 days, according to the site.

The 41-year-old Vikings quarterback suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder last week. Favre has played with many injuries over the years including sprains, broken pains and personal grief.

But this one was too much.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, 238 other quarterbacks have started an NFL game since Favre’s streak started, and 117 head coaches have led their teams onto the field. Punter Jeff Feagles is the only player to appear in more than 300 consecutive NFL games; he played in 352 from 1988 to 2009.
