    USA Today is doing a list of the top 25 players in the past 25 years, and they ranked Favre # 14:

    Now I agree with what they say, but surely the fact that Favre is on the doorsteps of almost every major passing record (like USA today acknowledge) means that he should be higher, no?

    They do have a point, IMO.

    The guy was an important factor (in conjunction with Wolf and Holmmy) in turning the ship around.

    I wonder if Favre's recent comments stemming from the Moss issue made him drop. IF they did, then I think it's unfair. Brett's always been a guy to say what he thinks without heavily filtering it, and that's something that you have to like. Shows he is no different from me or you in some aspects.

    You gotta learn how to keep your mouth shut though. Look at Marvin Harrison.

    You keep your mouth shut and continue to produce, and you'll end up with instant respect.

    Then again, Favre is a QB. QB's always talk.

    Putting Brett at 14 is not really justified in my opinion. He will probably be #1 in touchdowns, wins, and yards, the three most important statistics of a quarterback. How can that kind of production not even be in the top 10?

    Re: USA Today rank Favre #14 in the Top 25 in the past 25 ye

    I miss read it.....i thought it was top 25 QB's. I will be wondering who they will pick over Favre. I would imagine Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders will make the list. And Reggie White, Walter Payton, Joe Montana.
    Who else do you think will make it? Jerry Rice will be on it.

    I think it's too low, and I'm considered a Favre basher by many.

    I agree that it's too low. Favre should be in the top 5-10 in my opinion.

    Oh, and by the way, I can't imagine why anyone would think you're a Favre basher Tileman... :rotflmao:

    Joe Montanta
    John Elway
    Lawrence Taylor
    Reggie White
    Walter Payton
    Barry Sanders
    Dan Marino
    Jerry Rice


    Those are the only guys I could see ahead of Favre off the top of my head. Not saying Favre isn't better than some but I think realistically those 8 + favre are the best of the last 25 years. I could be missing a few but Favre certainly is top 10. I don't know about top 5 but top 10 for sure.

    As someone had commented on the USA Today site, it is "what have you done for me lately". Peyton Manning, who is a great quarterback and will be on of the best, does not deserve at this point to be higher than Favre.

    LaDainian Tomlinson at 21? Another example this article should not be taken seriously.

    Aagain.........this list is just someone's opinion. That, and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee.
    My opinion would hold just as much importance as this guys opinion. (And so would anyone's on this site)

    Yeah, I think they said they took 10 guys and had them vote and awarded points to players based on votes... but still, there must be like 4 Bears/Vikings fans in that group 'cause Favre at 14 is too low.

    :chalflag: erroneous, we the Packer fans of this board are completely and utterly impartial. We are also infallible, even in situations in which we contradict one another.

    I think so too Lynch! He has most of the all time records, and has started more games in a row then any QB has ever done.
    I think if he could win one more Super Bowl before he retires he would get the respect he has rightfully earned.
    But look at Dan Marino, he NEVER won a super bowl. Even with all his records, he never won the big game. In fact he went to the SB his first year, lost the game, and never made it back.

    To me it really depends on what criteria you use to judge the top 5. Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, and Terry Bradshaw won more championships then Favre. Of course all of them had GREAT teams around them. Montana had Jerry Rice, Aikman had Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin, Bradshaw had Lynn Swan and Franco Harris.
    If you go by career TD's, Marino is in the lead......for now! Favre SHOULD pass him by this season.
    I think Favre has the strongest arm of all of them.
    I think if Favre can have a great season this year, it would put him in the top position in my view. But i think that would need to happen for him to get the "love" from the sportswriters.
