Farve throws record breaking TD

On September 30, 2007, Brett Farve got the all-time touchdown pass record, leading the Green Bay Packers to a 23-16 win over Kelly Holcomb and the Minnesota Vikings in the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.

Farve threw 508 touchdown passes during his career. He is currently holds the record and is followed by Peyton Manning, 452, and Dan Marino, 420. He played in the 1996 Super Bowl and lead the Packers to a 35-21 win over the New England Patriots. The future Hall of Farmer also played in the 1997 Super Bowl, but the Packers took a 31-24 loss to the Denver Broncos.

The Atlanta Falcons picked Farve in the second round of the 1991 NFL draft. After his rookie year he went to the Packers, where he stayed for 16 seasons. In 2008, he played for the New York Jets and for the last two controversial seasons of his career the quarterback played with the Vikings. He was honored by representing the Packers in 11 Pro Bowls. Despite the controversial end of his career and the last play he was in where Chicago Bear Corey Wootton sacked him on a frozen field, he is among the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

“You’re never guaranteed about next year. People ask what you think of next season, you have to seize the opportunities when they’re in front of you.” -Brett Farve
