    <img width="180" height="250" align="left" alt="Brett Favre" title="Brett Favre" src="http://www.polkonline.com/images/030301/brett-favre.jpg" />His first official start won't come for another month, but Philip Rivers is excited nonetheless regarding his "starting" assignment in Saturday night's exhibition at Qualcomm Stadium

    One reason, of course, is that he hasn't started a game of any kind since the Senior Bowl in January 2004. But another reason is the quarterback scheduled to open Saturday for Green Bay.</blockquote>
    <blockquote><font class="newstext">Brett Favre has started 221 consecutive regular-season games for the Packers (241 including postseason), a record streak that began Sept. 27, 1992. Rivers – who was 10 at the time – next month will become the 13th quarterback to start for the Chargers since that date.</font></blockquote>
