I would think Brett would be "right up there" … he's broken every record in football!
"Favre was great, but for pure excitement,…". Give me a break; there's no but's about it—let's give credit were credit is do here!
"Brett Favre:Greatest Quarterback ever?" Does there really need to be a question mark?
Now, now, let's not let our heart get in the way of our brain. Absolutely, Favre is a hall of famer, a career with numbers and great suucess; but, let's not just look at the records he set. By many in the sports world, true success is measured in championships. Let's look at the rings-Montana 4, Elway 2 (one of Elway's wins was against the Pack and Brett), Bradshaw-4 Favre, uh, 1. Super Bowl apprearances: Favre-2, not bad. Montana-4; Bradshaw-4, Elway 5 (and three of those were with a god awful supporting cast). But rings don't mean everything, either. After all, Jim Plunkett has 2 and so does Roger Stabauch.
I really don't want to argue with anybody, and maybe Favre is the best ever, but it is not an open and shut case. It's what makes sports so fun, the opinions we all have!
