    it's hard to even rate this dude because I don't give a crap about him, good or bad, but he is over the hill and I am sick of his overexposure from ESPN. Favre? Who cares?

    Im not a huge fan of Favre and I don't care for his ego, press conferences or locker room moments. All that aside, he continues to set many records (69,013 pass yds, 493 TD passes and counting), and he has been unbelievably durable starting in over 275 straight games. I had my doubts about how good he would be before the 09 season started and how much gas he has left in the tank now that he is 40, and he really impressed me by having an All-Star season. He has looked somewhat shakey at times and has been running for his life due mostly to the Vikings lousy offensive line blocking over the last 3 weeks or so but he had a remarkable season considering all the drama and expectations that surrounded him and the Vikings before the season started. I would say he is definately among the top 10 QBs in the league this year.

    UPDATED SEPTEMBER 15, 2009: I was in Green Bay for the Bears and Packers game on September 13, 2009. The Favre hatred is everywhere to be seen. I got there a little early since it was a night game, and I watched the Vikings-Browns game in the Bay City Smokehouse just east of Lambeau Field. The place was packed with Green Bay fans and you'd think it was a Browns bar! Unfortunately for them Brett played a conservative game and the Vikings won.Just a block east of the Smokehouse is Bret Favre's Tailgate steakhouse in which he owns about 25% according to the bartender. He stated that business fell off some when Favre went to the Jets, but it has really dived now Favre is with the hated Vikings. The street west of the steakhouse is officially Favre Trail, but fans have covered it with a home-made wooden sign "Traitors Trail." I saw lots of #4 GB Favre jerseys with re-made messages--some obscene, some not.Green Bay is a gritty, blue color town, and the folks take football seriously.I... Read more

    He use to be good. Now he just needs to learn when to hang it up! Honestly. You've had your time in the spotlight and you're not the golden boy any more hang it up, goddamn!!

    Brett Favre has obviously made the Jets a more talented team this year in a short amount of time. His sheer toughness, longevity, and leadership skills are what has made him one of the best players of all time.

    I've always been a big fan of Brett Favre. He's a class act and a great qb. I really don't like the fact that he plays for the Jets but I think it will only be for one season, and then he will go to the Bears or Vikins as an appropriate swan song. Very good in 'Something about Mary' too.

    Favre is fun to watch and has had a great career. However, he is slightly overrated. He throws too many interceptions and his style of play has arguably cost the Packers a couple of more titles.

    A Gunslinger with reasonable Accuracy. A Product of the West Coast offence and wasn't anything special. Good coaching made him good, but has never been great. Made MVP 3 time's, and he deserved every one. Nice win over the Patriots in Super Bowl XXIX. Will go to the Hall of Fame, but won't be one of the Greatest.

    what else can be said.....his streak of consecutive starts and of course the stats don't like. Ever heard him make an ass out of himself in public?

    I liked the guy a lot in his prime, and I had a quiet admiration for his desire to push the sun back up into the sky and keep playing when he was past it.Some younger reviewers might find that trait of his less admirable, but those of us who have been around a while and who might be a little past our own primes perhaps understand better the need to keep putting on pads and cleats.

    Owns most records.. Never missed a game. A true franchise quarterback who played with heart

    Though he doesn't seem to me to be a better quarterback than Marino, the numbers don't lie. Favre could play until he is in his mid-fortys and still be in the top half of the league easily. He is an irreplacable face in this league.

    Brett Favre is a living legend. I am 51 years old and have watched a lot of QB's in my days, and some great ones. But Favre has them all beat with his skill, his toughness, and his love for the game. No better have played this game.

    Send more hate mail if you must, kids, but he needs to hang it so he doesn't soil his very good legacy. UPDATE: He has proven he has a little left in the tank, but he's been painful to watch more than he's been fun the last few years...

    There should be no doubt in anyone's mind the Brett Favre is the greatest QB ever. He may have only won one Super Bowl, but he has always had less around him (offensively) than any other QB. He has also won NFL MVP an unprecidented 3 times. On and off the field, this man will be the greatest ever!

    Brett Favre for president.  I'm not a Packers fan but I would rather watch Favre play than anyone else.  He might not be the best but I wanna be just like Brett.

    Not just coming from a packer fan, but he is the reason I watch football on Sundays. I will miss him when he retires. Non-packers fans are all guilty of finishing watching there hometown teams play and turning on the packers game just to watch favre in action. That says a lot. Favre is the most down-to-earth, hardnosed player to even throw the ball. Records don't mean anything to him cuz he just loves playing ball, and comes back season after season ready to play again. 4 Ever!!!!!!

    I have to say even tho brett favre has the most INT he has to be Easily top 5. He will have all the records. He didnt have HOF wr's. and won 3 mvp awards with out HOW wr's. Dan didnt even do that, nor did any other qb. So how can you say he isnt easily in the top 5. He won the big game. He has had 1 loosing season. Green bay loves him. He loves football. He is all about team. He has thrown the most throws so why wouldnt he have the most int. INT arent all on the qb. I mean he did throw a lot of End of the game just to throw one just to see if maybe he could get a lucky td. So that would go -20 int. And he wouldnt have the most. So brett is my number 2 qb of all time. Montana has to be one. Easily.

    Farve (yes farve... learn how to read your own name hick). Is going to set the all time INT record this year. Way to go, you held on to break some records....And you acted like a punk when you did it.

    one of the toughest quarterbacks to ever play the game. y.a. title was tough but he was not as good a player as favre. bret favre has also won the superbowl. he has a strong arm and rarely makes mistakes.

    Sat Aug 04 2007

    hands down there is no better quarterback in the history of the NFL that can do what brett favre can do. Brett favre has the strongest arm in the history of the game. Not one QB comes close to rivaling his armstrength, his toughness, his perserverence, his moxy, or his endurance. yes you say well joe montana has won more superbowls but look at who montana had to throw to. you say elway has more comebacks, well Favre has his fare share to and still counting. plus having the most comebacks isnt always a good statistic b/c its not just the defense that played poorly the first three quarter, the QB has to score too. so its sometimes "you put yourself in that position" kinda thing. now th most consecutive starts by an NFL QB, now thats a record that doesnt have a double meaning. i mean thats unheard of this day and age. i mean for christ sake he played with a broken thumb on his "throwing hand" a couple years ago and had a better passer rating than the previous year when his hand was health...

    Brette was a joke this year but his recievers handed him the bad rep on a silver platter w/ a silver spoon.He had no one 2 get open so was forced to get rid of the ball in tight places, but now javon walker is gone and if Farve can pick up some recievers he will be back 2 only getting 1 int a game in stead of 5.

    The most overrated QB all-time. He gets way too much credit for the success of a team in a bad division, and not nearly enough for all the games he's thrown away. He's inconsistent, gets his numbers in bunches, and hides behind a starting streak. He won't take a hit, and meanwhile he's so reckless his receivers are constantly injured, and careers cut short. He's awful in the post season, and hasn't played well facing a decent defense in years. Favre is a fraud, and a detriment to the team.

    The cocky Green Bay fans made me turn on Farve. That and his "duck" wobblers, or passes he chucks blindy in the air! The Packer fans are the worst, "YOU CAN'T BLAME FAVRE, HIS RECEIVERS SUCK!" "HEY MAN, FAVRE IS THE MAN!" "I'D LET BRETT FAVRE MAKE MY CHEESE WHOO!" The Packer ans are too loyal to Favre, and too hard on the team. He can do no wrong according to Packer fans. Now I usually love my athletes all American boys, however, Packer fans blindness, and the butt kissing media made me turn on Favre. There's no pocket awareness, no plan, he decides to chuck the ball in the air and doesn't care about the consequences. He may look the same, but he isn't the same favre we all knew in his prime.

    Though his heart isn't in it like it was, this man was one of the best to ever play the game. He has nothing to be a shamed of if he retires on the note of how bad last season was.

    If I was rating the Favre of yesteryear, it'd be a 4 or a 5. He's always been overhyped, but still not too far away from the hype. For example, Trent Green has a higher career passer rating, and not many people claim him to be the best QB ever, unlike Favre. That's what they call hype. Rating the Favre of today, not as hot, but still miles from sucking. If he were a young, developing QB putting up his numbers, he'd be a 4. However, he's a veteran who's probably on his last year, so there's less upside. At least he'll be around to give Aaron Rogers some pointers and quality time on the bench before he leaves. He's decided to very openly and smugly say that he isn't going to mentor Aaron Rogers... so much for the team leader image everybody portrays him having. UPDATE: Wow... Favre did God awful this year. He threw a total of 29 interceptions on the season, easily leadign the league. In his last 10 games he threw 5, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 1, 2, 4, and 1 interception, a total of 20 in that str... Read more

    I like Brett but this guy is really protected. He has went from a superbowl qb to a interception machine. It's not all of Brett's fault but I'm tired of people protecting Brett and blaming everyone else. I think I caught one of Brett Favre duck passes while sitting in my living room.

    Wed Dec 21 2005

    The only reason Brette even got a 2 is b/c he is a gunslinger.He is the most overrated sports figure in the world.He leads the league now (Dec 21, 2005) with INT's(24) and is a career high.What's bad is i like Farve alot but i want to set the record straight and say he was good but not great, I don't care how many MVP awards he has won he has thrown at least 1 INT almost every game.

    When I think of Brett Favre 2 words come to my mind, GREATEST EVER. no doubt he is the best ever. Guys talk about Marino being the best ever better than Favre because Favre throws too many interceptions. Well here is a stat for you. In 16 seasons Dan Marino threw 252 INT. In 15 seasons Favre has thrown 202 INT. Not to mention Dan Marino has had great recievers around him and the best Favre ever threw to was Sterling Sharpe for 1 or 2 seasons. Farve won games by himself sometimes. If the packers did not have him they would of had a top 5 draft pick every year for the past 14 seasons. I strongly believe him to be the best ever and I belive when he retires I will break down and cry for the first time since they won the Super Bowl in the 1996 season. KEEP PLAYING BRETT.

    Brett Favre is the best QB of all time, period. 3 MVPs, a Super Bowl, 219 consecutive starts (as of 12/16/05), and the guy throws bullets literally, breaking many WRs hands. I can't think of any one else who when asked to do the impossible, does it. So many comebacks, and no matter what comes his way (dad dies, wife gets cancer, brother-in-law dies,) he doesn't lose his focus on the field. Any my favorite part about him, is that though he may be 36 years old, the guy plays with so much heart like a little kid.

    Thu Dec 08 2005

    Brett's the toughest QB to ever play football, bar none. Who can argue with the consecutive games streak? Look at his numbers, a higher career completion rate then Marino 1 Super Bowl, 3 MVPs.. I mean the guy was unstoppable in his prime. He's not quite what he used to be, but I'd still take him over at least 26 teams starting QBs.
