Okay, so Favre did retire as the owner of a lot of the all-time records for quarterbacks. You also can’t knock his 297 consecutive starts. But the greats like Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, and Tom Brady had an art to playing the position that Favre didn’t have.
He was a gunslinger whose arrogance caused him to make stupid throws, as he failed to value the football as a quarterback should. Yes, he’s worth of a spot in the Hall of Fame, but if you think he’s on the same level as Manning, Montana, and Brady, you’re kidding yourself.
