Brady holds an unbelievable number of records because he played in the NFL for so long. This doesn’t mean that he was the most technically-gifted QB of any generation that he played in. But he was the most consistent and durable. However, one clever Redditor noticed that there’s one record that he retired without.
They wrote: “Holds every major QB record except one: number of times he said he’s retiring and then unretired. (Brett Favre).” This is brilliant because it felt like Favre retired every season after he turned 30. Favre was a great player but Brady is an icon beyond anything the former Green Bay man can imagine.
