Brett Favre, the NFL’s all-time passing leader in TDs, yards, attempts, games and just about every other record, won’t be disappointed if his record for TDs falls today.

It took former Packers/Jets/Vikings QB Brett Favre over 300 NFL games to achieve his 508 career passing TDs, but with Peyton Manning at 506 and poised to break his record today, he is not shedding any tears over it.
“Oh, well,” Favre said live on NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Morning.
He added: “I don’t really care to be honest with you and I mean that with no disrespect. I think the world of Peyton. I’m not surprised that he’s going to break it.”
Favre took the high road when asked about Manning breaking the record in a passing league that looks almost nothing like it did when Favre entered the league in 1991.
“Well, it is a little more prolific today, but I don’t want to take anything away from what he’s done,” Favre said. “Drew Brees, I think if he continues to play, we know he’ll be prolific. He could put up astronomical numbers as well. But it’s becoming a different era.”
Even if his passing TD record falls this year, he has numerous other NFL records that will take several more incredible years out of Manning or any other NFL QB to match or break.
