"It (throwing career touchdown number 421) feels great, but I've never considered myself as good a quarterback as Dan Marino. Dan was a hero of mine. To be mentioned in the same breath as Dan and other guys really makes it special." - Brett Favre on (10/01/2007, AP Wire, Link)

Were you aware that in the entire history of the NFL only two quarterbacks, Brett Favre & Dan Marino, have ever thrown more than four-hundred touchdown passes?

On Sunday, September 30, 2007, Brett Favre threw his 421st career touchdown (see video below) passing the all-time mark set by Marino did you know he also set during this same game the all-time record for career passing attempts?

Will Peyton Manning, number third all-time in career touchdown passes thrown, shatter this record during his career and reach the five-hundred mark? Share your opinion with us on Pigskin Fever.
