Oh, I forgot. First, Farve has a ring, three MVPs and two NFC championships. Manning can't get past the second round. Second, while the two other dominent teams of the 90's , the Cowboys and the Niners, have
fallen to the bottom of the pile as a result of the cap and parity, the Packers have remained competitive- because of Favre. Third, yes Favre played like an old man against the Vikings, and if he can't do any better than that, its time to hang it up, but at least he gave it a shot. Manning went up against a team missing three starters and he couldn't put a touchdown on the board. He didn't throw any interceptions because he didn't throw a pass over five yards. 49 td passes in one season and he can't even throw one when it counts.
Manning proved what I suspected, hes great in a dome on artificial turf, but put him in a money game outside, and he's below average. And all the excuses and apologies in the world won't change that.
