The NFL's Love Affair with Brett Favre Continues


So Mike Reiss over at ESPN.com reports that the NFL is doing a Top 100 Players of All Time ranking thingy. The shocking pick?

20. Brett Favre
21. Tom Brady


Scratches, squints eyes, reads it again.

20. Brett Favre
21. Tom Brady


Hmmm, I must be losing my vision, or I am reading this all wrong. Did I just see that correctly?

20. Brett Favre
21. Tom Brady


Yup. It's not surprising the NFL would pick Favre over Brady, they have been slurping the Favre splooge for over a decade now, even with his completely diminished skill set and inappropriate dong pics. Favre had a nice little career, riddled with stupid passes, and playing when he shouldn't. Brady has been surgical for most of it, easily the top 1 or 2 QB's of this generation (I'm not getting into the Peyton Manning debate here). Just from a sight test, Brady has led the Pats to a dynasty, Favre....Favre....has the NFL watched him play the last five years? He has looked horrible. Two quick stats should put this stupid list debate to rest:

Tom Brady Super Bowl rings: 3
Brett Favre Super Bowl rings: 1 (and he better write thank you notes to Desmond Howard)

Tom Brady Super Bowl MVPs: 2
Brett Favre: 0


True, Favre owns the record for most all time passing yards, but I'm pretty sure that Brady could break that record if he just went back to pass and heaved it 30 yards every other pass like Favre does. Put Favre against Brady both in their primes, and Brady is going to win that 9 times out of 10. And when Tom Brady sends a picture of his dong to a lady friend, she doesn't go running to the press with the evidence, because that's the power of the Brady Dong.
