    I was thinking, today while stuck in traffic on the Hollywood Freeway.

    One cannot really compare Brett to any former QB in the NFL. He is an anomaly, simply so special and unique in what he brings to the game.

    I do not like to compare Brett to other QB’s, and when I am asked to I avoid the question.

    But, what about comparing him to other players in other sports. Brett has made his mark in the NFL. Then I asked myself who is most Brett like in other sports.

    Here is what I came up with.

    MLB
    If Brett played baseball he would be Pete Rose minus the life screw up. Pete did everything possible to win. At first I thought of Ripkin because of the streak, but Cal never sacrificed his body like Pete Rose did.

    NHL
    If Brett played hockey he would have been Bobby Clarke, tough as nails, nasty, and a true leader in clutch time.

    NBA
    If Brett played in the NBA he would have been Larry Bird. Nuff said.

    European Football
    Naw… Forget it. They roll around on the ground like they got their head cut off every time someone touches them/

    NASCAR
    He would have been NUMBER 8 Dale Sr. “The Intimidatorâ€

    -Allen Iverson: Minus the thugness..AI is all work...all sacrafice. Favre didnt like practices(sherman excused him) and neither does AI! AI always puts his body on the line for that team, like Favre does for GB. AI doesnt have a ring yet though, Favre does.

    I was thinking that exact same thing, before I even read your post. It's the constant hustle, ill adivised plays that usually(not always) turn out in his favor, and their love for the game.

    Pete Rose is a good comparison for MLB, but you have to take into consideration Craig Biggio as well.

    Lets hope this doesn't become a "Bill Simmons comapre athletes to bands" thread.

    if memory serves, the Intimidator was #3. AND, if brett was car engine, he'd be a Chevy Small block 350. If he was a UFC fighter, he'd be randy couture. If he was a Snap-On tools salesman, he'd be my dad.

    phil mickelson is a sissy. Brett Favre in golf would be John Daly, great with the long ball, uncommon techniques, and a i just wanna play attitude.
    phil is left handed thats about all that is unique about him.

    As far as Nascar goes, Dale Sr. shared the winning spirit with brett, but i think a better comparison is Darrell Waltrip or Tony Stewart. Dale Sr. was a hell of a driver but a real prick also. Darrell and Tony both love to win and will race anything with wheels. Plus their attitudes and demeanor more closely match brett.

    Bobby Clark and Cantona are spot on.

    Brett reminds me of my wife. I always hope he will go down early and suck for 3 hours, but ends up beating me and leaving me frustrated for a week.
