So you are going to break down a HOF QBs career. Discount his records and his multiple MVP awards and everything else to one pass in one game ....there was a 5 yr span that no other QB in the NFL was close to what Favre was doing. By your own admission, you don't remember that time. Don't get me wrong, I think Rodgers will be a HOF QB, but right now, today, Rodgers doesn't surpass Favre. I think a better argument is who is a better Packer QB, Favre vs Starr

I hope so because Rodgers is the best right now. The reason why Rodgers won't surpass Favre is because he holds on the ball for too long. I do remember Favre but I was only in sixth grade when Favre left the Packers. I was too young to remember anything else before the Packers even drafted Aaron Rodgers.

I like Rodgers but big picture you have to give credit where credit is due and Favre was a great QB, no doubt. As I've said on here many times and Joe Montana said it recently, very hard to compare QBs from different eras.

Using stats for all QBs in comparison, just like using rings, does not cut it for me. I think Rodgers will be remembered for his mental ability to read defenses, his accuracy, which he is obsessive about to a fault and of course, his great arm.

Brett Favre strikes me as being an honorable, God-Fearing Man, Aaron Rodgers...wouldn't buy a used Bentley from him, especially with low mileage on the odometer.

Agree....especially with the rule changes, you cannot compare "stats". Look at the QB numbers from the 70s, they were lucky to be around 50% completion %. That was mainly due to the rules that let defenders hit receivers at any time on the field as long as the ball was not in the air. A 55% completion percentage then was great. Today a 55% completion percentage will get you out of the league

he was tough because of the illegal Vicodin, he said it himself, he wouldn't have had the streak without using to get through the seasons (ironically when he was playing his best in the mid 90's)

funny how Desmond Howard was the SB31 MVP and not Favre, and then next year they were one of the biggest favorites in SB history against Denver and flopped big time


he didn't just throw picks but games deciding picks, how many in NFC Championship games (in 2 different uniforms)

In SB 32, Favre was 25-42 for 256 yards and 3 TDs, 1 Int....if you even watched that game, GB had 2 big fumbles that they lost....unless you are biased, Favres stat line was hardly a flop one of the fumbles was Favre who was sacked on the play....Terrel Davis gashed the GB defense for 157 yds rushing and 3 TDs....GB losing that SB was on the GB defense, not their offense

Brett Favre's playoff numbers up to that point: 194-for-317 (61.2%), 2430 yards, 18 TD, 7 INT, 94.7 QB Rating
Aaron Rodgers' playoff numbers up to that point: 210-for-318 (66.0%), 2489 yards, 19 TD, 5 INT, 103.1 QB Rating

Both players' teams were 58-29 after those 87 games and both players had a Super Bowl ring under their belts.

Any more questions?
Nope, sums it up perfectly. Farve had great moments, but also some huge mistakes, while Rogers is consistently very good to great.

WTF does that mean and how is it even relevant? God-fearing is completely different from being a good/moral person. As far as I know, Rogers has never done anything as silly, embarrassing, tasteless as sending an unwanted dick-pic to someone like Farve.

Rogers seems like a good, moral person; he's just outspoken in his faith. And even as a Seahawks fan, when the Packers beat us on 09/20, I absolutely love what he said -sarcastically- afterwards: "I think God was a Packers fan tonight." He was also right after last seasons NFC championship game in saying, "I don't think God cares a whole lot about the outcome. He cares about the people involved, but I don't think he's a big football fan." Why would god -if it exists- care about something like football? To think your team won because of god is delusional and arrogant.

typical Brett Favre fan,


fumbles
fumbles
fumbles
fumbles
fumbles


but INTERCEPTIONS aren't turnovers and don't influence the game.....


they were only 14 point favorites in that game.


none of Favres Turnovers, ah , I mean interceptions were "big" or "game changing"

In the same game, Elway was 12-22 123 yds and 1 pick....I guess in your mind he had a better game than Favre? The game was not lost due to Favres pick....the game was lost because Denver rushed for 180 yds and 4 rushing TDs....GBs defense got blown off the line of scrimmage the entire day
