Fans of the Green Bay Packers are spoiled by the play from their quarterback position. Who would have guessed after a nasty Favre-Packers divorce in 2008 that Packers fans might be treated to perhaps an even greater performance out of the quarterback position?
The Green Bay Packers and their fans rolled out the red carpet for their former quarterback Brett Favre this past weekend and it couldn’t have gone much better. Except for one matter that made the Packers look small.
At age 38, Peyton Manning will likely crack 500 career TDs, a milestone that took Brett Favre until age 41 in his final, gimping year as an NFL quarterback. Manning shows no signs of stopping and many of Favre's legacy career marks are likely to fall to Manning soon.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
