Brett Favre -- Streak Ends at 297

12/13/2010 8:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brett Favre will not be the starting quarterback for his football team tonight -- for the first time in more than 18 YEARS!

1213_brett_favre_TMZ_BN
Favre's record-setting consecutive starts streak will end at 297 games thanks to a shoulder injury he suffered last week against the Buffalo Bills.

Favre's record is pretty safe ... for now ... the closest active player is Peyton Manning at 205 consecutive games.

Some perspective? Miley Cyrus was not alive the last time Brett didn't start.

Oh, and the answer to the trivia question: Arthur Moats -- the Bills player who tackled and injured Favre ... thereby ending the streak.

Almost made it to the finish line perfect on starts (assuming he really does retire this time). Oh well, it was a good run.

Finally a Bills player does something right. He was interviewed today about what do you think about possibly ending Brett Favre's start streak? Throughout the whole interview he had the biggest smile on his face. It was great streak and it had to end at some point

damn, I was hoping he would play tonight just so the Giants could bury him on the field so we wouldn't have to hear about him anymore.

Mr. Favre, you should have stayed retired. Now you will fade from the NFL, an injured man with a stupid scandal marring your past accomplishments

One of Favre's greatest highlights has to be Favre not giving Sterger a dime. I hope Favre has taught the rest of the world that you should not kowtow to legal blackmail.

As a Packer fan, I still have many thanks to give to Brett. He has been a toal joy to watch play ball for all these years. I watched him with the Jets and with the Vikings. Didn't matter to me, I just love to watch him play! All the haters can now go find someone else to hate and wish ill. All I can say is THANK YOU BRETT, YOU ARE THE BEST AND ALWAYS WILL BE!!!
