    There will never be another guy like Favre, and it's been incredible watching him play his heart out for the Green Bay Packers.

    I would have to go with Lance Armstrong, given his situation and all of his Tour de France wins. 100s upon 100s of miles of biking is a grueling test.

    Armstrong is pretty tough, but he doesn't go through the physical abuse of an NFL QB.

    My opinion is coming from a guy who mountain bikes but has never played in a fully padded tackle football game.

    I played some football in my younger days, but never did much biking. So, I can see where you might be coming from here. I can't even imagine riding a bike for that long, you would have to have amazing endurance.

    Yeah. I've climbed some pretty ridicuous hills that completely drained me when I was biking but nothing even remotely close the moutains Lance has climbed.

    I would say Lance Armstrong because that probably takes the most out of someone. Brett Farve gets hit just as much as any other QB but is just lucky he hasnt been severly hurt.I dont see how some of those people are even on this list.

    We will see just how tough he is this season, when our new Purple People Eaters front four plays multiple rounds of "Meet at the Quarterback" and "Rock 'em, Sock 'em, Favrebots" in the Vikings - Packers matchups!!! :lol:

    I dont know how Brett Favre topped the list so high up. Lance Armstrong overcame cancer I believe, and riding 1000's of miles through the mountains ain't the easiest to do.

    Doesn't this thread belong in The Clubhouse, or better yet, General NFL Discussion forum!
