Best: Green Bay Packers – Brett Favre
Thanks to the foresight of former Green Bay Packers General Manager Ron Wolf (and the shortsightedness of former Atlanta Falcons head coach Jerry Glanville), Brett Favre went from riding the pine in Atlanta to becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history as the starter.
Favre’s combination of a howitzer of a right arm, toughness of a cheap steak, and relishing making plays in the midst of chaos made him one of the most dynamic players of the 1990’s. The three-time NFL MVP and six-time All-Pro was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. He currently sits in 3rd place on the NFL’s all-time passing yardage list, having thrown for 71,838 yards in his career.
Worst: Green Bay Packers – Randy Wright
Before Aaron Rodgers, there was Brett Favre. Before Favre, there was Don Majkowski, whose career was cut short due to injury.
But before even Majkowski, there was Randy Wright, who played four miserable seasons for the Green Bay Packers, finishing his career with a laughable 7-25 record as the starter, and 57 interceptions thrown in five seasons.
