WARNING: If you have some sort of irrational hate on for Favre and his accomplishments, please ignore this thread.

But for those interested, if Favre gets 228 yards and 2 Tds against the Saints he will tie Joe Montana all time for post-season yards and TDs. Pretty amazing stuff.

Also this will be Favre's 24th post season game, Montana played in 23. So Montana will have done it a bit faster (if Favre does it), but still quite the accomplishment.

Also, this is why I will always love the guy:



But I will be rooting for the Saints because I can't stand Vikings fans if they win the SB. Thats was always the thing we had on them. No matter what they said, we could pull the old Patrick Roy ("I can't hear you with my SB rings in my ear").

It would destroy that whole trashtalk avenue, which would hurt. Think about how horrible that would be? It was so good "well whatever Packers fans, you never had players like Moss and Carter and went 15-1". "Well Vikings fan, you never won the Super Bowl, how's that feel?". End of conversation.

Plus, I like Drew Brees and that city deserves something good like this, Go Saints but not before Favre throws 3 Tds and 230 yards.

It sure is quite an accomplishment. Anyone who even gets close to Post Season Monster Montana's numbers has done something special.

Agreed.

The only way to surpass this record is to be on winning teams as the trick to postseason records is to be in as many postseason games as possible. Montana and Favre both played in a lot. If I'm not mistaken, if anyone has a shot at breaking the record after Favre breaks it, it's Tom Brady. I'd have to look up the stats, but I'm pretty sure.

Impressive numbers. I still say Montana is the best clutch QB of all time.

16-7 post season record.

45 tds, 21 ints

But what is most impressive are his SB stats:
-1142 yards (1st all time)
-11 td passes (1st)
-NO interceptions
-4 SB wins

Money.

Agreed, there is no argument to be made that Montana isn't THE SB/Playoffs QB. He was as cold as ice, though I still think the ultimate key is to be on a really good team. Do I think Brady is "that" much better than Manning or that Bradshaw is "that" good, not really. Or that Rothlislsigilburger is that much better than Rivers or Brees, not really. That Pittsburg D was unreal. Ultimate example, Trent Dilfer has a SB ring and Marino, Boomer, Jim Kelly, etc. do not.

Even if you look at Manning's 1 SB, it was really the D that won that post season for them. He didn't have that great of a SB run but they won and then you can have a game like Rodgers had this past game and still not get to the 2nd round.

I really believe that football is the ultimate "team" game. Thats why I think the 'best' players don't always win the SB (for example, BERRY FREAKIN SANDERS). That is an actual travesty to me, Sanders, if I had a time machine I would go back and make it so he won one. He had a great career but man what he could have done if he had a team.

That's the reason why Joe Montana is my all time favorite QB. I've always hated the Niners (in a distant, careless way), but I LOVED Montana.

You just summed up my reasoning.

In the BANK!

Only problem I have with this is that those 49er teams were LOADED, offensively and defensively. So I will argue that Elway is the greatest clutch quarterback, because he put those early teams on his shoulders like a pack mule and drove them to victory. Montana drove the Porsche. Also, Walsh was a much better coach than Reeves.

I thought Kurt Warner was first in yards with 1,156?

Edit, at the time of IronMan's post, Joe was first, Kurt topped that mark last week.

I confused myself with looking up post season stats and then Super Bowl stats. Blah @ me.

At least it was able to confuse dhazer, so it was worth it.
