I have to agree with Lambert on this one, Bradshaw was great in the playoffs but mediocre in the regular season

He is one of the greats, but in no way the greatest. As far as retirement it depends on what he wants to accomplish. He's not going to win another SB in Green Bay. I not sure that he could win it anywhere else in the NFL that needs a QB.If he wants to go for records then stick around, but it sure was painful watching him this year, and I wouldn't want to witness that again.

in comparisson with brady and montana:

-throw out the int. and yds. numbers. bradshaw was a huge gambler and risk taker.
-look at the ammount of games bradshaw missed
-bradshaw ran his own offense
-bradshaw never played in an offense where the passing game was an extension of the running game (west coast offense) he even says his numbers would be tremendous in a west coast style offense
-bradshaw was tough as nails and one hell of a scrambler.


farve and probably elway remind me of bradshaw more than any other qb's.
on the fox pre game show bradshaw commented recently that he rarely uses the term "best ever" but that farve was it.

i think farve should continue playing. not to pad stats, or for false hopes of another ring, but for the love of the game and the competition and commaraderie of sundays.

as a sidenote, on inside nfl this week he sounded like the prospects of playing in a different uniform would creep him out.

No champion wants to go out after such a bad season.. even if he doesnt win another SB.. you gotta think Favre will want to go out after a much better season for him and his team.

puh-leeeeeeeeze!!!! Im so sick of this Favre worshipping. Since Holmgren left he has been a reckless, overated, media hyped, exciting but inconsistant QB. He has lived off of one SB championship and has gotten a free ride for a loooong time.
His earlier accomplishments certainly make him a hall of famer, but to me he is below
1. Montana
2. Unitas
3. Elway
4. Staubach
5. Bradshaw
6. Graham
7. Starr
then.....its
8. Favre
9. Brady
10. Marino
11. Tarkenton
12. Fouts
13. Manning

YES...Brady over Marino and Manning. Brady, like Montana,Starr,and Staubach, is about
winning football games and championships. Marino was about aerial shows and blaming his teamates. Until Manning actually wins something (in either college or pros has NEVER shown up for a championship game) he is much like Marino.

Hey, you want stats? how about Bledsoe and Testeverde? stats can tell a lot, but they dont make the QB.

Bradshaw tough? LOL, not that is funny. Favre was in a car accident where they took out alot of his intestine and he played within a week or two. That's tough. What did Bradshaw do that was so tough?

No, it's not an insult. Putting Bradshaw ahead of Favre on the all-time list is IMO.

no question farve is the toughest qb out there. his record consecutive starts streak is undisputable. as far as bradshaw in the pocket or scrambling, he was as tough as they come. he never shied away from getting hurt or injured. much like farve or mcnair. i see ben being one of those types of qb's.

(bradshaw ended his career and final season with the tissue in his throwing shoulder turned to mush from inproper treatment and playing when he shouldnt with pain injection shots
