Apparently (based on them having a record less than 5 other teams, that's not the case. He is a very good QB, but the team around him is what makes him what he is...remember, its a team sport.vurbano said:Brady is a much better QB.
Cases in point -
Bradshaw was only a so-so QB with the Steelers years ago, but was surrounded with some solid talent - he went along for the ride. Overrated I guess too.
Marino & Clayton/Duper (as well as a solid O-Line) were the whole show for most of his years, so that's why he racked up all those points and yards. Overrated too, for sure.
In a team sport, you live by the team and you die by the team - and right now Favre happens to be surrounded by 3rd-5th stringers with limited talent.
You don't get to the HOF with mediocre skills, and Favre's stats (except interceptions) this year are in the upper 10-15% of all QBs. He doesn't seem to have lost much of anything, except a solid team around him.
Sad to see it, but it is what it is.
