Number Four, Part Deux
Apropos my discussion with da Great one, on the subject of Brett Favre's accuracy, he's only two interceptions away from tying George Blanda's venerable record of 275 career INT's. That's a lot of picks.
Of course, the real question, which I'm too lazy to figure out right now, is the ratio of INT's to pass attempts. My guess is that Favre has a lot more pass attempts than Blanda, given the periods in which they played. So Favre is maybe more accurate than . . . Blanda. I'm not sure that's saying a lot.
Btw, I was under the impression that Dave Krieg still had the career record for fumbles, but that record was "taken" by Warren Moon. Like the INT's record, the career fumbles record is a mark of pride and shame at the same time. You have to take a helluva lot of snaps to fumble a record number of times, folks.
