Broke George Blanda's record of 43+ years with 50 more days on the "+".
Maybe it was dicussed in the games thread, but I saw this picture and it makes me laugh.
forget that in this picture (in the next post) Blanda is younger than Brady (presumably - if the Blanda picture was taken after his game when he threw his last TD pass in the playoffs).
Blanda looks like he could be Brady's father.
Blanda looks like the old school NFL where he drove a station wagon with wood panel on the side to his summer job selling insurance. On the sideline when the D was on the field, when he wasn't playing linebacker, he fired up a heater, Lucky Strike or Pall Mall, and chain smoked on the sideline.
No one knew him in public, and he didn't wear a face mask like today.
Brady might be an outlier, but I still stand by my initial reaction to the side by side, science, medicine, and sports have come a long way.
