Brett Favre says he doesn't care care if Peyton Manning breaks TD record

Peyton Manning is about to break Brett Favre's all-time NFL TD record. That doesn't bother Favre much.

Of all the quarterbacks to play in the NFL over its almost 90 years in existence, Brett Favre has thrown the most touchdowns. However, that probably won't be true for long: Favre threw 508 in his career, and Peyton Manning has 506, so Manning will probably soon take that record.

And that doesn't bother Favre.

Via NFL.com:

"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."

Just the kind of laissez-faire attitude we came to expect out of the ol' gunslinger during his playing days. It's probably good Favre isn't too attached to the record: Manning has thrown 15 passes in five games this year, so if he merely hits his average, he'll break the record today.
