Over the past 17 years, you've been a credit to the Packers, and to the National Football League and to the sport that we all love so much. Brett, congratulations on touchdown 421!''

Former 49ers quarterback Steve Young: ``If you haven't played quarterback in the NFL you truly don't understand just how difficult it is, let alone to be great at it.

Couple that with the consecutive-games streak and what he has accomplished is beyond imagination. To have one of those records is astronomical and he's got them all. It was an honor to compete against him and an honor to be his friend.''
