Rank 'Em: NFL's greatest quarterbacks

Created: July 28, 2009, 8:18 PM

Where does Brett Favre rank?

Brett Favre says he isn't going to play for the Vikings this season, so if he really has played his last NFL game, where does the former Packers legend rank on the all-time list of quarterbacks?

Favre's comeback flirtations have been a seemingly constant story in recent seasons, but his play early last season with the Jets offered glimpses of why it mattered. At his best, Favre was often spectacular. He led the Packers to one Super Bowl title and won three MVP awards.

So do Favre's gunslinger mentality and impressive statistics put him in the top five of all time?
