It's easy to hate on Brett Favre for various things, but the fact remains that he's one of the all-time greatest players in NFL history. On Monday night, after nearly three full quarters of the Vikings offense being utterly stagnant (including two fumbles by Favre), he hit Moss on a beautiful long bomb for his 500th career touchdown pass.

Just a few plays earlier, Favre became the only player in NFL history with 70,000 passing yards in his career, a number that is absolutely mind-boggling.

He's also the only player in NFL history with 500 yards -- Dan Marino is second with 420, a distance that really emphasizes Favre's longevity and success in the NFL.

And yet, the craziest thing about the two passes that put him over the the respective milestones is that they were to Randy Moss -- something that never, ever seemed possible when they were dueling it against each other a few years back.

That pass, though, was indicative of what you can see the rest of the season from these two -- even though they've been off much of the night, and even though Favre looked more 80-something than 40-something for the majority of the game, deep balls to Randy Moss shouldn't be that infrequent.

Correction: fumbles not funbles.
Congratulations Brett Favre, yet another wonderful player allowing a brilliant career to be tarnished while trying to pad stats that he hopes will be safe from Peyton Manning. Can anybody say Emmit Smith?

Correction: 500TD passes, not yds

And you forgot to mention that he now holds the record for most funbles by a player.
