Maybe that was godell's target all along. My brother's a die hard Unitas fan and is sure rooting against it. What if the dictator's feeling the same way?

Brees is at 43. That's why it'll be broken against the Chargers. Unless I miss-counted and he's at 42, then he'll only tie it there.

The consecutive games with TD pass streak started in week 6 of the 2009 season against the giants so just count upwards

That is ironic isn't it.

I still like San Diego, but this is one I'll enjoy watching. Not nearly as sweet as Brees breaking Marino's record against the lowly Atlanta Falcons, but still pretty sweet.

Sorry, but I really doubt if they give the supposed bounty much thought. They know better than we do how overblown this whole thing was.

... break the record, tie the record ... either way, that's a lot of consecutive games to be throwing a TD pass in!

Now I might have a change of heart when it comes down to that last game of the record. But as for right now, I'm not even thinking about a record
Well, since this record would benefit the team.... Any record that concerns TD's is one that is important.

Cant win with out them.
