Montana/Favre Postseason Record Update

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 18, 2010 – 3:35 pm

We mentioned last week here on the blog that QB Brett Favre was approaching a quartet of Joe Montana’s postseason passing records.

Favre has a brilliant performance on Sunday against the Cowboys and as a result he broke one of Montana’s records and inched closer to 3 others.

In a 34-3 victory over Dallas, Favre was 15 of 24 for 234 yards and 4 TDs. The 24 attempts give Favre a career postseason total of 745 passing attempts, 11 more than Montana’s 734. That was the only record Favre surpassed, though, as his 234 yards leave him 227 short of  Montana’s 5,772.

Also, Favre is 2 TD passes behind Montana’s 45 and 7 completions behind Montana’s 460.

    breett favre entrega lo mejor de un atleta en esta temporada.he seguido a brett favre desde hace 10 años,y no he visto a mariscal alguno,q de tanto de si,y teniendo encima 40 años,es una gran temporada para y su familia.sin dejar de mencionar a su gran equipo q ahora tiene,ahora el no tiene un equipo a sus hombros como en los packers mas tiene a un equipo en el cual esta a gusto y en quien confia,con elementos jovenes,q aprenden dia a dia de su experiencia.
    lo contraron para este momento y lo esta logrando,espero yo y me imagino q muchos como yo verlo en el super bowl.

    more than likely Brett will need to break those records in order for the Vikings to win, so in that case, I certainly hope he breaks those records!

    Brett will likely break those records. This has been a great season for him. Has anyone called Ted Thompson to scout this kid yet? I think he has some potential.

    yeah. no matter what happens from here on out i can honestly say as a fan i’ve had more fun this year than any year in as long as i can remember. that includes that 12 year run of terror in the 60’s-70’s, 98. it’s been a joy to watch these games from day one. thanks ziggy for this years memory. of course i’m still a monday morning QB/Coach. against the saints they need to unleash the beast (28) and tame that crowd untill they get enough booze in ‘em and forget to scream. then set the Legend free. go vikes. oh. and just tell the defense to play.

    purplehorn – TT doesn’t like free agents

    1stinthesouth – you have it all wrong… “The Vikes are coming” to plunder and pillage. I expect a strong Favre contingent in Mardi town this weekend. it is virtually his hometown stomping grounds. Satans better grab some Juju beads or whatever you do to cast away powerful spirits.

    If the Vikes play half as well as they did this past Sunday, it will be in the bag… the one over the Satans heads.

    I think all the players should come in dressed in black suits and dark shades… Like the Blues Brothers, they are on a mission from Purple Moses!

    Favre you go and get those records. BTW You delivered the boys the second worst playoff defeat in their history. Freakin excellent! I don’t know what to say except win a SUPERBOWL. This is as good as it gets DO NOT BLOW THIS CHANCE! There are so many senarios one could go through but you must play that game as you were playing the cowboys again and prepare by watching game film, lots of game film on the Saints you guys looked great against the boys now lets do it against the Saints “Pants on the ground just make sure yours are pulled up for the game on Sunday!!! Chaz

    Ok… you guys are doing this all wrong. You are supposed to be full of hate and talking about how worthless your players are. What kind of fans are you?

    I agree with you Stephanie, Brett will probably need to put up them kind of numbers to lead offense to victory, so GO BRETT!!!! GO OFFENSE! GO BIG “D”!!

Thanks to Wilf family for goin after all these great players for us!!! We as fans have been given an awesome season and it has been a freakin blast!!!! Let’s keep it goin VIKES!!!!

    Hey Jenni you forgot to thank Ted Thompson and Mike Mccarthy for being complete idiots for kicking Favre out of Green Bay.

    I have much respect for B. Favre and the Vikings Organization. I hope they play their best game this Sunday. That being said …………being an avid Saints fan, I believe we will play better. Geaux Saints!

    Jim, thank you for the polite comments from a Saints fan…
    But if the Vikings play their best (a complete game) as they did last Sunday, they are a formidable opponent that will be hard for anyone to stop.
    Be careful what you wish for.

    I like the Vikings but beware Reggie Bush..guy was on a tear last week. Vikes can only hope Peterson can look that good.

    donna – As long as Kluwe continues to punt the ball out of bounds and pin the Saints back, I don’t foresee Bush having a break-out day. <50 yards rushing.

    The Vikings were 2nd in Rush defense all year only to (87.1 yards/game)
    Vikings gave up 92 yards rushing to Cowboys vaulted attack last week.

    The Saints however were 21st in Rush defense. (122.2 yards/game)
    The Saints gave up 232 rushing yards last week in a pass heavy frenzied game.

    Don't be surprised if Percy Harvin returns a few punts this week and breaks a long one.

    Lets get real….farve has done things at the age of 40 that we should all hope to accomplish. I think he has a solid chance at going for the champonship, and lets hope he can make it to break these records!

    Most polls showing public exxpects Vikings to go all the way. Brett deserves it.

    If the vikes and the jets make it to the superbowl the nfl is fixed and all about money come on the old dog and the guy who replaced him its better then as the world turns. give me a break just like baseball the fix is in and lets not forget the vikings are looking for a new home yes it is just like everything else sports entertainment not sports

    You know I watched the Vikings-Cowboys game. I learned one big thing. Farve is a CLASSLESS ego maniac. You know leading 27-3 with 1:59 left in the game and Farve throws on 4th. and 3. That was B.S. Then he insults everyone’s intellegence when he stands there and acts surprised. He is so classless. How can he even be mentioned in the same breath as Joe Montana? What an insult to Montana. I hope all of you Vikings fans are prepared for the “Brett Farve soap opera” this off season. He’s done it to the last two teams he has been with. He always has to be the center of attention. Well I pray that the Saints make him the center of attention and they light up Minnesota!! GO SAINTS!!!!
