If Brett Favre sits, London Fletcher and Peyton Manning will be Ironmen

If Brett Favre decides to rest his ailing elbow Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys, his consecutive-games streak will come to an end at 289 regular-season games.

Which raises the question: Who's No. 2? Well, you have to squinch your eyes up to see them from 289, but it's two guys who are tied at 197 and no doubt will be in physical contact with each other Sunday night: Redskins linebacker London Fletcher and Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

(Shoutout to Dan "The Bogbudsman" Steinberg and to Louie Carr.)

Yeah. His elbow. Right.

I'd want to sit out too if I took the shot to the nads that he did in practice:

....too bad Favre lacked the maturity to recognize that he was not in physical shape to contribute to the Vikings this season......too bad the Vikings are so desperate for a Super Bowl trophy that they would send a plow horse to the derby!
