Photo Story: A Roundtable of Iron Men – And a Tip of the Cap to the Greatest Iron Man of Them All

As you surely know by now, Brett Favre’s NFL-record consecutive games started streak ended last night when he was inactive for the Vikings’ game against the Giants. Regardless of your thoughts on Favre, even the biggest #4 hater has to respect the incredible toughness, longevity, and love for the game that Favre displayed in showing up to start and give his all each and every Sunday.

However, is it really the greatest Iron Man streak of all time, as many are positing today? Other legendary Iron Men like Lou Gehrig, Cal Ripken, Jim Marshall, Doug Jarvis, and A.C. Green just might feel differently, and all have legitimate claim to the title of Greatest Iron Man of Them All.

I grabbed my camera and transcription device and rounded up all of these Iron Men to get their thoughts on the matter. This roundtable of Iron Men is presented below as our latest MSF photo story.
