Default Brett Favre, the greatest of all-time?

Does anyone else think it's a mistake for Favre to retire at the end of the year? If you look at his numbers, he's almost at 4,000 yds this year. His only problem is that he's trying to do too much on his own. That's the reason for the high number of int's. I think Favre is the best of all time. If you look at his stats, he rivals Marino's numbers and he's player 3-4 less seasons. He's beaten alot of Elway's numbers. I think Favre is still in the top 10 QB's in the league and should come back as GB's best chance to win in '06. He's the toughest S.O.B. I've ever seen. Look at his consecutive starts streak. Maybe I'm too much like John Madden. He is criticized for having a man crush on Favre. I think he just knows a great player when he sees one. He use to day the same things about Rice, Montana and Elway.

Favre has played 2 fewer seasons than Elway and has thrown 95 more TD passes. He's only 25 away from Marino's mark and he played 3 more seasons than Favre. I believe I have made my case beyond a reasonable doubt.

First let me say don`t change LambertisGod. That happens to be a great sig. lambert was better than Favre. Well at his position anyway. lambert is probably top three lb ever. Favre is possibly top 15 qb ever.

As far as Favre retiring, I would hope that he wouldn`t. His team sucks, who ever they had they lost to FA, or were injured. With that said, is there any chance that he will have a better supporting cast next year? I doubt it, he and the packers are in a difficult position. I hate to see the greats go. HOF Class of 2010 should be a good one.

He is a great QB, still hate to think it, but believe Otto Graham was the best.

He is a great QB. I hope he sticks around another year or two at least.

How much of a shocker would it be if he . . . switched teams for one more chance at another ring? There are lost of teams out there that are a QB away from a good run.

Favre should only come back if the team makes a concentrated effort this offseason to get him an offensive line and shows a commitment to protecting him in the pocket and getting him another WR.

I have never been a big Favre fan... I don't know if I even know where to put him in my top ten. From what I've seen, It would be something like this... the jury is still out on Peyton, he may go down as the best ever.

1. Joe Montana
2. Dan Marino
3. John Elway
4. Jonny Unitas
5. Troy Aikman
6. Steve Young
7. Dan Fouts
8. Terry Bradshaw
9. Jim Kelly
10. ???Moon, Farve, Tarkenton, Namath, Staubach???

There has been a lot of great quarterbacks...

Bradshaw threw almost as many int's as he did TD's. 28,000 yds over a 14 yr career is only 2,000 passing yards a year. He meant alot those dynasty years, but top 10 of all-time no way IMO.
