You say hello, Favre says goodbye

The song from that commercial was in my head.

Anyway, some random thoughts for today ...

  • Where does Brett Favre rank in your mind of all-time best quarterbacks? My top-five list goes like this: John Elway, Joe Montana, Brett Favre, Dan Marino and Tom Brady. Peyton Manning will eventually knock Marino from the top group.


  • Enough of the Favre retirement shows. He said it best at his news conference that he now knows what it's like to be dead. Too much already.


  • We're doing a football combine with our Fantasy department. We'll do the 40-yard dash, shuttle run, broad jump, vertical jump and wonderlic test. We'd like to incorporate some more ideas, so if you have any suggestions, pass them along. In a practice test of the wonderlic Friday with 15 questions between David Gonos, Eric Mack, Dave Richard and Scott White, Gonos and White each had 13, while Richard and Mack got 11.


  • We're doing a mock football draft on the site right now with other Fantasy experts here in a 12-team league. I had the No. 8 pick and took Larry Johnson. There are at least three other running backs I like better than Johnson, but it's too hard to pass up on him at that spot unless you take a quarterback, which I didn't want to do. I'll likely go running back again in the second round and get one of my guys. We'll be doing mock drafts all offseason so make sure you check it out.



  • We're doing plenty of stories this offseason to get you ready for the 2008 Fantasy season. I'd like to know what you're interested in reading about, so let me know, and we'll address it.
