    Eh, I don't really like the decision. It's becoming kinda hard for me to watch Favre go out like he is. Most great QBs know when to hang 'em up, and usually do so after one last worthy try at a SuperBowl. Favre is just kinda back, but everyone knows Green Bay isn't going anywhere. What's worse is that Aaron Rodgers is just gonna be sitting on the bench for another year not gaining any experience.

        Favre and Manning are basically taking all of Marino's records. That'll leave Marino with no Super Bowl rings and no records. I still think hes top 5 all time.

        As far as Favre passing Elway in wins goes, its meaningless at this point. Favre will never be considered better than Elway...especially with the way hes ending off his career.

        As far as the Hall of Fame goes, Favre was already a first ballot HOFer a few years ago.
        2 of the top 3 NFL QBs of all time have been Broncos

            dang, can i get some haterade for some of the people in this thread? anyone who's ever watched favre play should know what an intense competitor he is-- i'm sure setting records and getting paid the big bucks are part of it, but this guy clearly LOVES the game of football! while i'll be the first to admit that the way he held the franchise hostage last year irritated me, i certainly don't have any problem with him playing another year-- sure, his skills aren't at the truly elite level they once were, but brett favre at 75% is still a lot better than quite a few QBs in this league. . . he's head, shoulders and torso above aaron rogers! also, i don't see how it's fair to blame him for the way the packers suck-- he didn't let all 3 starting interior linemen walk from one of the best O-lines in football, or make the other personnel blunders they've made. . . who are we to tell him he needs to retire if his team isn't a favorite for the super bowl? where does it say that aging stars are only allowed to play for rings, and not just the love of the game?

              I happen to think Brett Favre is better than John Elway was.

              Anyways, I want Brett to do what he wants to do. If he wants to come back and play another season with the Packers, that is great. If he chose to retire, I would've been perfectly fine with that. I absolutely love watching him play.

                    I agree and I also agree with what someone else said about Testeverde,people
                    see him going from team to team and no one thinks anything of it.

                    I too figure last seaon was his last.GB will not release him...I think they will
                    let him go on his terms,when he is ready.

                    I wonder what the fans of GB think.

                      excited about farve returning.

                      i think its awesome brett is returning. he has so many reasons to. hes 6 touchdows away from 1st overall in nfl history. its amazing, he has around 57 000 yards. and it will be amazing to reach 60 000. i think he will step up this year because its his last year. and lead the packers to the play offs. Hoorah for farve.
                      the rams, will own you.

                        I see that you were born in 1986 and probably never followed the young Elway play...and completely carry his team.

                          Ah NO...NO he did NOT!
                          ...keep in mind that one record of Elway's is safe...all-time leader in being sacked

                          In 83 he was a rookie and did not start every game...head coaching decision
                          1987 was a strike-shortened season...his MVP season at that

                          Take those 9 games out of the equation, you get 13 games that he missed.
                          ...and of the three that he missed in his last season, he could have played in at least two of them, but Denver held him back just to be careful.

                          What Favre has done with his consecutive games played is simply remarkable and commendable, however saying that Elway missed "a ton of games" is just flat-out WRONG!!!

                            I don't know what your trying to get at here. You are 6, SIX years older than me.

                              Six years is a long time...in football time

                              And I started watching and following the Broncos/Elway with my dad at the age of 5 ...which would be 1985...which is when he was entering the prime of his career...one year before you were born. This means that I missed about two of Elway's years, you missed much more!

                              Plus my dad taped many many games and we watched those throughout the years also.

                              What year did you start watching football...let's say you were five as well...that is 1991 or so and you would've already missed a lot of Elway...not to mention that you may have or have not even followed Elway, as it looks like you are a Cowboys fan.

                              I didn't mean to disrespect you or your age...or defintely your opinion!

                                Favre is a warrior. Nice to see him back in action. I don't like him for obvious reasons, but I sure as heck respect him.
