End of an Era


His head banged up, his Packers 1-3. Could this be the end of our era of quarterback's? The guy's that we could relate with? Brett Favre's Packers are 1-3 and are going to play a similer team in the Titans who also have a quarterback that falls close to this era that Favre is in. Brett Favre is the last of a dying breed which was bred from others before him like Unitas, Bradshaw, Elway, Moon, even Cunningham. The tough quarterback, I guess you can throw Mcnair in there and even Mcnabb but Favre stands from them when it comes to being a leader and an all round quarterback. When Favre finally retires we all will know we are old football fans. I feel strange even trying on a Mike Vick jersey or somebody that young. It's great when you are a fan and you look up to these players to make your Sunday special but when the guy is younger and he was a freshamn when you were a senior it just makes it strange it's like if you still played with your GI Joe's. It's gonna be a sad day when he retires. Hopefully we will still have Rice to cheer on.

This is for sure the end of an era - I understand the "tough" quarterback situation, but I think McNabb and McNair are the beginning of a whole different era and shouldn't be included with the likes of Elway, Moon, Farve, Bradshaws....the game has changed significantly over the past 20 years that the Michael Vicks of today's age will be more like a running back instead of a quarterback. They are just more versitile having that ability. Could you imagine the possibilities if Elway or Moon had Vick's running skill? Sure Cunningham was a runner, but I still don't think he compares to the type of runner Vick is.

It is strange seeing the stats on these young players in the league. 5 years ago we were that same age, now we have players like DJ Williams come into the league being 21 years old and making millions - guess it wasn't reality for us since we were that age, now that we are getting older, we are wondering where that time went. As a kid I always made fun of that football fan who wore that Simpson jersey, or that Franco Harris jersey saying they were an old-timer - I guess I feel that way now wearing my old-school orange Elway jersey.

I guess it comes down to love of the game for the fan. I was lucky enough to watch a majority of Elway's games in person and I'm always going to miss that enviroment Elway created but at the same time I was spoiled by it too. I went to a Broncos game last year and it was my first since the old Mile High stadium(even that is old lol) and it just wasn't the same. So I guess the best thing is too enjoy it while it lasts because time changes everyones perspective and abilties. I'm always going to love watching football but not as much as watching the Broncos with Elway

No it is not the end of an era just ahighly over-rated team with a terrible non-tackling defense. I worked in Wi. for 2 years and understand this he is not done. He still can make throws few qb's can. I know I am a QB. Just down now but not out will be revived.
