In tonight’s segment, Favre discusses Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and other top quarterbacks. Here is a preview of tonight’s interview:

 

On the quarterbacks currently in the NFL that gets his attention:

 

“There are some good ones. Obviously [Tom] Brady has done it consistently, Peyton [Manning] has done it, and both guys have done it in different ways…Peyton, he’s a G.M. on the field.”

 

On Saints quarterback Drew Brees:

 

“Brees is another one that is kind of like [Tom] Brady. Different player – size is different, the mechanics are different – but it’s amazing what Brees does. Now, he has some pretty Good Guys around him, but I don’t think it really matters.”

 

On Wednesday’s edition of NFL Total Access, Favre discusses rookie quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, as well as former teammate Aaron Rodgers and New York Jets quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow.

- “Because the team that I’m on now, we feel like we’re one of the best teams in The League. We feel like we can play with any team in this league on any given Sunday.” – Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick on why he is confident 2012 will be different than 2011

 

- “We don’t talk about what’s being said in the media and what media talk is because our owner hasn’t stood up in front of us and said, ‘This is the situation, if you guys don’t perform it’s going to be this.’ We understand the concept of this game, we understand the business aspect of it, but we don’t even talk about it. The only time we talk about it is when we talk to the media so it’s like it doesn’t even exist to us because we’re so motivated for the season and excited about the season. We’re really excited about going into this year as far as football and being able to go out and have fun and play good football. Not to prove anything to the world or to the critics, but to ourselves that we can play with the best.” – Vick of if the Eagles can play well with the pressure of needing to improve from last year
