Favre's consecutive start streak. 297. Sept 27, 1992 - Dec 13, 2010.
Ripken's won't be touched either.
Pleased to meet you; hope you guess my name.
Eli Manning has a shot at it.
Actually, because of when he played and his broadcasting career since he retired, Jurgensen has seen just about every great QB who ever played. i've heard him say on more than one occasion that Unitas was the best he ever saw; that's good enough for me.
Call me a relic, call me what you will,
Say I'm old-fashioned, say I'm over the hill....
Yeah, Penn State's non wining streak is pretty damned impressive. They haven't won a game since, when, 1997? I'm surprised they get anybody to their games.
Rickey Henderson's 1,406 career stolen bases.
That's 468 more than 2nd place Lou Brock. To put that in perspective, there's only one current player who has over 468 stolen bases for his entire career: Juan Pierre with 581. Carl Crawford (430) would need almost 1,000 more to break it.

No. Everything prior to the end of the dead-ball era is meaningless.
Everything prior to integration has a minor asterisk.
don't the Reds have some prospect who has insane SB numbers? I know minors are different that the League, but something to watch for.
this guy...IDK if he will get called up, but he is impressive once he gets on base...and that article was written about a month ago.
From Yahoo! Sports: Hamilton displayed his speed at the Futures Game and jokingly credits it all to a steady diet of Mountain Dew.
he'll be up September 1 as a PR no doubt. The fans in Cincy are on fire about him.
crash davis' minor league HR record will never be touched
A sport that has stood the test of time, and has transcended race.
Light Heavyweight Champion Archie Moore's 131 knockouts
His career lasted from the 1930s to the 1960s.
Watch how much evil we call the crime picks up...There is nothing else to do Sal!- Ray Lewis
Let's say he is called up, and plays for 20 years. Which is a very long baseball career, but not unheard of. He would have to average a little over 70 SB per year to break the record. That's insane.
boxing is too corrupt to include in this.
Billy Hamilton can't catch Henderson. And he'll have a hard time catching Billy Hamilton.
Career: 40 HR, .344 BA (7th), 914 SB (3rd), OF, HOF in 1961, Phillies/Beaneaters/... 1888-1901, b:L/t:R, 4x R Leader, born in NJ 1866, died 1940, 'Sliding Billy'
Edwin Moses winning 122 straight 400 meter hurdle races over nearly a ten-year span.
Let me not hijack this thread, but I see a bunch of sports being discussed, that excluded entire RACES of people for prolonged periods of time. Sports that have included steroid users, point shavers, and game throwers. Yet boxing is too corrupt. LOL
There is nothing more PURE and Definite in sports than a Knockout. Nothing. There is no corruption in it, and no discussion about it. Show me an image that more clearly defines victory, than the one below. Archie Moore... 131 times. Im out.
I didn't know that Jimmy Johnson was coaching as early as 1916.
Cumberland did have some fine young men on that team though.
This is true. No boxer has ever faked a knockout.
This topic can't NOT be douchey.
lol people have never taken a fall? do you even watch boxing? look at whats happened in THIS Olympics. sure other stuff happens in other sports but its no where near as often as it is in boxing.
id say the most pure thing in sports is running fwiw.
Dude your trying to derail this thread, using the extremely rare exception to the rule. Sure fighters have taken falls, but your going to discredit 1000s and 1000s of knockouts for, how many guys that took a fall? And I wasn't talking about amateur boxing, I specifically referenced the mans professional record. Amateur boxing is a whole other game.
Im citing DECADES of discrimination, steroid use, and people fixing championship games in other sports.
You say running is the purest sport, but people cheat in that shit too. All the time. I cant remember the last time I watched the olympics and questions of doping werent raised surrounding the runners.
I'd say the 109 yard kickoff return record is pretty unbreakable.
I'd have to say that an equivalent would be a pin in wrestling, specifically NCAA championship level and above.
