A fix of Favre

Hmmm...that could mean many things, I guess. But every once in a while we need to pause and reflect upon the fact that we, as Packer fans -- as football fans -- have been able to watch one of the greatest -- if not the greatest -- quarterbacks of all time, for a very long time now. In fact, statistically, Brett will wind up #1 in more than a few categories by season's end. With last Sunday's win over the Eagles, he has already tied Elway for most wins by a QB. A handful of touchdown passes and he will pass Marino for most TD passes thrown. Etc.

But back to our "fix" for today. A friend sent on a link to a gallery of pix of Brett on the Sports Illustrated site. Some photos that, as my friend says, "will bring back lots of memories." Here's the link.

For the stats geeks out there -- and you know who you are! -- you might also find this Favre database of interest. Not only a static version, but a searchable one, as well. Everything you always wanted to know about his TD passes...and some stuff you'll be amazed to realize you wanted to know if only you knew, ya know?

Enjoy the pix. Enjoy the stats. Enjoy Brett. For no one like him shall pass this way again...pun intended, of course.
