Seriously, there is no argument. The best of all time is only a symbolic argument. Who a person is the biggest fan of will determine opinions. As a Packer fan, I will always see Favre as the greatest. I certainly wouldn't expect a Broncos, Colts, Patriots, etc fan to agree with me though.
Well, there is is some boundries to the arguement. For example; you couldn't make a realistic argument that Favre is even on the same level as the great Trent Dilfer.

Who is Trent Dilfer, sorry but he must be before I started paying attention.

Well, you then have the even higher caliber quarterbacks than Dilfer or Favre, like Bubby Brister...

Brett Favre the best QB ever??? I'm not sure about that...but definitely in my top 5!

BTW...was I the only male that shed a couple of tears on that intro on MNF by his wife..."he's my Brett, but OUR Favre." Given all the sh** that he and his wife have gone through over the past few years...and to have the support and love that they share with each other! It was quite a touching opening piece.

There is almost NO ONE that can clearly be labeled best ever at something without a reasonable debate and a toss up list of at least 3-5 guys that aren't clearly better than each other.

Exceptions would be perhaps Gretzky, Tiger, Rice at Wide Receiver......even Michael Jordan....who is clearly the best guard ever is not clearly the best player ever.

So, Favre is on the short list and it's impossible to make a case that there has been better.

Is Brett Favray the best qb ever?

I don't know. I'll say this, he's not done yet!

I dont know about that, I think he is close to retirement. Not because he is "old" but because he is done. Lord the way they were talking about him last night, got me wondering whats up.

The offensive line is what makes or breaks a quarterback. If you have an outstanding offensive line,even an average quarterback will look great and a poor offensive line will make an outstanding quarterback look average.

A good defensive line will provide good field position for the quarterback to make the offensive play-calling easier and vice versa.

Like Korny said...If they ever built a Mt. Rushmore of QB's...he'd be one of the four up there.
