After 476 straight games, Favre-like John Madden rests

After 476 straight games, announcer John Madden is taking a seat. Leonard Shapiro of the Washington Post writes:
    It wasn't exactly Madden's idea to take a deep breath and a day off this weekend, but when NBC Sports Chairman Dick Ebersol first broached the possibility with him last spring, Madden said he'd have to think about it. Ten days ago, he spoke with Ebersol again and told him it might not be a bad idea.
