Since when is it just a given that Brett Favruh was abetter QB than Steve Young. I don't believe that at all. Yes, his career stats are more impressive, but he also played way longer. For all of his great moments and highlights, I can find the same amount of big games that Favre lost all by himself at the end. I am not trying to say it is Young by a wide margin or anything, Favre is one of the best QB's ever, but so is Young in my opinion.
Hardly anyone is subjective these days. There is no way the likes of Tony Kornheiser should ever be allowed to voice a public opinion on QB play. Ever.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Favre - but, watching him play for 16 seasons, you learn a few things. Longevity is great, but so is the quality of work in that time, and, whilst it was stellar, Young's work in a shorter span of time was better. I say so because I constantly say "The only thing Favre has on Rodgers is longevity. And Rodgers has now been a starter for 5 seasons so the issue of longevity is fading"
Don't get it twisted, Steve Young is a better Quarterback than Brett Favre, just not as durable and had to start a little late.
