Same with Unitas' consecutive touchdown record. That's almost three solid seasons. If anyone does
break it, I have a feeling he'll be wearing the same uniform.
I think Ripken's record is safe. Players don't play through pain the way they used to, and a lot of that has to do with money. Guys aren't willing to risk a big contract to be in the roster every day.
