I'm really happy for Favre, I would like to see him pass Marino, not sure he can do it this year but for turning 37 the dude is still pretty good!

So Favre, "Awesome job!!!!" :clap::clap::clap::clap:

DETROIT (AP) -- Brett Favre sprinted toward the end zone, signaled touchdown and then pumped his right fist. The 36-year-old quarterback had just become the second player in NFL history to throw 400 career touchdown passes.

He added two more scores to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 31-24 win over Detroit on Sunday for their first victory of the season.

Favre said he felt like a kid while celebrating after each TD, bouncing on his toes and leaping into teammates' arms, but his body quickly reminded him that he's not.

"I've got to stop doing that because I get so tired," said Favre, who turns 37 next month. "I have to be smarter. Mike (McCarthy) said, `Great job, but you have to quit running around like that,' because I couldn't talk to him, I couldn't breathe.

"I was able to recover a lot easier back in the old days, but there's nothing like throwing touchdown passes."

Favre would know.

With his first TD pass of the game -- a 75-yarder to Greg Jennings -- Favre joined Hall of Famer Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks to reach 400 touchdown passes. Marino has 420.

"We needed a win a lot more than I needed 400 touchdown passes," the three-time MVP said.

Brett Favre is my second favorite QB in the NFL. I loved the guy when I saw him on an Monday Night Football Game at Lambeau back in the mid 90s. He is turly a joy to watch. I was excited to see the Packers win a World Championship while Reggie White was still playing. Those are some great memories. Congratulations, Brett, on a fine accomplishment.
