It's the NFL offseason, which means it's time to answer important NFL offseason questions. And there's no NFL offseason question more important than this one: Who has better facial hair out of Brett Favre and Peyton Manning

I know what you're thinking, "Is this a trick question? Because Peyton Manning doesn't even have facial hair."

It actually turns out Peyton Manning does have facial hair though. At least he did recently. Manning was photographed at an event over the weekend and as you can see in the photo: Peyton has a goatee. 

It's a nice goatee to be sure, but it's no match for what Brett Favre has on his face. The 44-year-old gunslinger has apparently given up on shaving -- or they stopped selling razors in Mississippi -- but either way, he has a lot of hair on his face. A small bear probably has less hair than Favre.

So what's better: Favre's rugged, Grizzly Adams look or Manning with a goatee dressed up like a secret agent. I'm going with Manning, but only because until five minutes ago, I didn't even know he could grow facial hair.
