From Pete in Hudson, WI:
I was thinking about our favorite QBs and something dawned on me:
Bart Starr = Yoda. The old pro, cool under pressure, almost serene in nature. Knows the force (football) better than anyone, former Jedi instructor (Packer’s coach). Now wrinkled and old.
Brett Favre = Darth Vader. Started out great, but even then was reckless and on the edge. Killed a bunch of Sandpeople (Favre disappointed NY Jets Fans) before turning to the dark side (Vikings) after being seduced by a Sith Lord (Childress) who ultimately meets his doom at the hands of the Jedi/Rebellion (Packers). Vader was the one that actually destroyed him (Favre’s bad play caused him to be fired). Will some day end up next to Yoda in the row of glowing former Jedi (Packer’s Ring of Honor) after he is redeemed.
Aaron Rodgers = Luke Skywalker. Started his training later than normal, but quickly became very powerful. Was instructed by Yoda (Bart Starr). Helped to destroy the Sith Lord (Fire Childress) but did not actually defeat him directly in the end. The Jedi/Rebellion (Packers) won the ultimate victory by destroying the 2nd death star (Won SB XLV). Beginning of a new era of galactic peace and prosperity (New Packer’s Dynasty).
