Green Bay Packers fans have been spoiled. Don’t misunderstand me, I don’t mean they are spoiled like spoiled brats (although I’m sure Bears fans would have their own opinion). What I mean is that the Packers faithful have been spoiled by having two Hall-of-Fame-caliber quarterbacks at the helm for the better part of three decades.
Favre, Rodgers have started 95.6% of Packers games since 1992
Consider this amazing stat: In the last 31 years (1992-2022)… a span of 498 regular season games… the starting QB for the Pack has been either Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers in 95.6% of those games! During those 31 years, Favre started 253 games for the Packers, while Rodgers has started 223. The other 22 regular season games were started by six other QBs. Those six (and the number of games they started for the Packers): Brett Hundley (9), Matt Flynn (6), Don Majkowski (3), Scott Tolzien (2), Jordan Love (1) and Seneca Wallace (1).
It will probably come as no surprise that when you look at the Top 2 QBs for each franchise based on career TD passes, that the Packers duo of Favre and Rodgers tops the list with a combined 917 TD passes (Rodgers 475, Favre 442).
