    1. He's fearless, just ask Mr.Sapp I bet Farve is the only QB ever to go right back at him.
    2. He's a person, he has never acted like the superstar more like some one you would have a beer with after work.
    3. He dosen't look for the easy way out, when his father passed, his wife with cancer, the list goes on and on. Many of us would use things that happen in our life as excuses to quit, he uses them for motivation to excell.
    4. He is selfless, he likes good stats but dosen't care about them, he throw's some pick's but at least he is trying to put his team in a position to try to WIN every game. So many QB's quit when they are trailing I have never seen Farve do that.
    5. He has never held out for more money, not saying any names Javon Walker.
    6. He's an Iron man, I dont even have to explain this one everyone knows if there is a football game that involves that pack he will be there beaten, broke or battered.
    7. He makes the Greenbay hospital alot of money, Have you seen how fast he throws the ball his recievers have to get thier hands fixed all the time.
    8. He hates playing in Minnisota, I go crazy just listing to thier accents Aye
    9. He will hold every major quarterback record both good and bad next season by bad I mean (interceptions)
    10. He is one of the few players that I truly believe love the game of football and its not all about the money.

    "cough"..... "cough"

    I will not comment on items 1-7, and 9-10. That would take to long.

    However, Minnesota is spelled with an "e"...... uffda!
    And as far as going crazy Heather, you are already a Packer Fan ! :razz:

    Go back the the land of zero lombardi trophys.

    I agree with what you are saying out their accents. I watched Fargo for the first time last night and I almost cried with annoyance at the amount of times that police woman says Aya and Ya !!!

    First of all Fargo is in North Dakota, not minnesota they are aprox. 240 miles apart. 3 and half hour trip.... but i just noticed your from england.... so ill let it slide.


    secondly, favre did get hooked on pain pills... i think thats takin the easy way out of something.

    and throwing interceptions or breakin the record for ints should never be included when talkin about the greatest QB of all time.


    But there are at least 5 good reasons on that list as to why HE IS the greatest QB of all time.

    I think that record is just a testament to how long he's been playing.

    Interesting sideline:
    Do you know who holds the MLB record for games won as a pitcher? Cy Young.

    Longevity, and in this case, a gunslinger's mentality, earn all records...good and bad. Just part of the program.

    so you know he cares about the money??

    So then why did he just recently turn down 200,000 k to do an autograph session??

    The sad part is.........if they were going to pay him 200 grand to do an autograph session, can you imagine what they were gonna charge the fans for his autograph? Back in 1997 they had "Pack Fest" at the state fair grounds in West Allis. They had alot of the Super Bowl Packers there, including Favre. You had to pay for each player's autograph. Even then, i couldn't afford to get Favre's, as they were charging $75 for it back then, 10 years ago! I can only imagine what the charge would be now.
    That just isn't fair to the REAL fan, who isn't rich and can't drop over $100 to get an autograph. Thats why i was hoping that Favre would be at Fan Fest, and i would be lucky enough to get his autograph ticket. Thats the only way i'll get my Favre jersey signed. But i haven't seen his name listed as a participant at Fan Fest this year.

    I can go for Favre being top 10 QB in history, but not of all time. I'd even say a top 5 guy, I could slide him in there First ballot hall of famer and surely better than any QB my team has ever produced.

    I noticed that you are not from England, but Fargo is on the Minnesota border. I don't think even a slow walker would take more than 30 minutes to travel between MN and Fargo... but I'll still let it slide.

    There is nothing easy about being addicted to Vicodin which is similar to other powerful addictions. Football players are often fed pain killers to keep practicing and playing and the cravings for the Vicodan take hold of a person and may even supersede a person's need for food or water. The hydrocodone component of Vicodin is the reason for its abuse. Hydrocodone is derived from an opiate, the chemical effects of which are similar to those of heroin and are highly addictive. It increases the activity of the neurotransmitter dopamine, causing a strong euphoria.
    The symptoms of Vicodin withdrawal include but are not limited to restlessness, muscle pain, bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes, goose bumps, involuntary leg movements, watery eyes, runny nose, loss of appetite, irritability, panic, nausea, chills, and sweating.

    No one would choose to become addicted to Vicodan, and kicking that addiction is anything but easy.



    There are some awfully great QB on the list of most interceptions. When a player breaks just about every passing record (attempts, completions, yards...)-- the interception on is likely to follow.

    Speaking of movies, this from "Dogma" pretty much sums it up !!

    While discussing Loki and Bartleby

    Bethany: "Were they sent to Hell?"

    Metatron: "Worse. Wisconsin. For the entire span of human history."

    You have that right Zombie!!! I was tought to work hard to, it would get you places, but in this day and age a promotion may come from having sex with a boss or etcc.....which I am not going to mention. Me, I will get promoted cause I deserve to be, I would never stoop that low in my life to achieve anything.

    Its always great to have a good work ethic, so many of our kids these days dont have it cause they werent tought it. Now I didnt say ALL kids just some. :rotflmao:

    Heather...Heather...Heather, being a crazy packer fan is bad enough, but I think that it is being compounded by sleeping with a Steelers Fan. :razz:

    the movie Fargo has exactly one scene which is supposed to be in Fargo; the opening scene. The rest of the movie takes place in Brainerd and [/b]MINNEAPOLIS!

    PS. I am originally from North Dakota and now living in Minneapolis (ugh) and the accent was clearly evident to me in the movie, borderline annoying, which shows that if i can detect the grossly exaggerated accent, then we don't actually talk like that.
