Max McGee joined The Hater Nation as a corespondent for Super Bowl 43. And he contributed just one post, when he promised like five. But how he won't go away, so why not, I'm too lazy to post now anyway. Take it away, Max.
Brett Favre finally retired, and this time, he claims its for real. I've always admired Favre, because that guy certainly loves his drink. This a guy who was fresh out of rehab for abusing pills, but still rented out a room in New Orleans prior to Super Bowl XXIX so he and his buddies could drink some beers. That's my kind of guy. He really knows how to handle himself on the field and more importantly -- in the bar.
Let's pretend that this retirement for Favre is for real. Where would you put his legacy? He certainly has the numbers, that's for sure. There will be a call for Favre to be the greatest of all-time. I'm not quite there yet. I would rank Favre as the No. 3 quarterback of all-time.
In Green Bay Packers history.
My guy Bart Starr is easily the best quarterback in Packers history, and maybe even the best of all-time. All of you fruit cakes who only follow the Super Bowl era are short-changing Starr's legacy. Sure Starr won the first two Super Bowls, but he won a total of five NFL titles. Outside of Otto Graham, nobody is touching that.
All of you pansy, MTV-generation pleebs like to shout out things like, "Favre is the best of all-time." That's a load of crap. If we had a quarterback who threw the game crippling interceptions like Favre did, well, I wouldn't have invited him out for drinks after the game. Well, I might have, but I would have ended up punching him in the nose. You can't be the best of all time and give the game away. For crying out loud, do you think Starr would have lost a home NFC Championship Game to that limp noodle Eli Manning? You've got to be kidding me!
The thing to remember about Starr is that he still holds the record for career postseason passer rating. Starr was at his best when the games mattered the most. So before any of you jerks try to claim Favre was the great of all-time, he wasn't even the best in club history.
And don't forget about Arnie Herber -- the guy who made Don Hutson go. Show some respect.
That's it for me, folks. I'm Max McGee and I'll drink to that.
