First top 15 QBs of all time

1. Joe Montana

2. John Elway

3. Brett Farve

4. Dan Marino

5. Tom Brady

6. Johnny Unitas

7. Terry Bradshaw

8. Steve Young

9. Bart Starr

10. Peyton Manning

11. Troy Aikman

12. Joe Namath

13. Bob Griese

14. Fran Tarkenton

15. Roger Staubach

I think their was two reasons why Brett Farve isn't a Vikings right now. First, I don't believe Farve's body could handle another 16 games. After last year when he ran out of gas, down the stretch. I never thought it was the arm, even after the surgery. The age of 40 years old, and 16 games, I think he knew, not this year.

Second reason, I do think this was the biggest reason. When the Vikings players started texting him. I think he took a step back and said, the expectations of a super bowl is too much. You can't expect a super bowl ring from a 40 year old quarterback, even from one the greatest, his first year. He doesn't know the players, especially the wide receivers, only knows one coach. Vikings are the ones who called Brett first. Brett kept saying not sure, not sure, even last week it was a no, but the Vikings said rethink. Vikings told Farve take all the time you need before training camp starts. Vikings are in full blame here with the Farve waiting thing. I would definitely put the Packers as the front runners in this divison.

i think if farve came back it would be the biggest mistake of his life but it would probably put a big smile on all the DBs in the nfc north

Top 15QB of all time, why Farve made his decision

Considering that he threw 13 picks in his 4 games against the Bears ( 3 of which were returned for TD's) I will gladly welcome Brett Farve back into the NFC North

Top 15QB of all time, why Farve made his decision

I am not convinced that Farve won't play this year. He kept saying he didn't think he could play a 16 game season. So that leads me to believe that as usual Brett Farve didn't want to go to training camp. He's pulled this crap the last 6 years. Watch for him right around the Vikings bye week. He knows the West Coast Offense better than any QB out there so he'll just plug himself in during their bye when the Vikings realise that Jackson/Rosenfeld are not starting QB's.
