Aaron Rodgers going for consistency, not records
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) A Green Bay Packers quarterback may someday reclaim the career record for touchdown passes that once belonged to Brett Favre.
But it's going to take a while for Aaron Rodgers to get even close to the 510 touchdown throws that current record-holder Peyton Manning has.
Rodgers has 206 TD passes entering this weekend's game at New Orleans.
Rodgers said Wednesday it was special when he heard Manning mention his name for the record once held by his predecessor, but noted such talk is a long way off.
The 30-year-old cited consistency and availability as the keys to lengthy success.
Yet, Rodgers may very well have a shot if he keeps shredding defenses like he has this season, throwing 18 touchdown passes and just one interception.
