Who is the better quarterback, Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers?
That will be a question Green Bay Packers fans ponder for the ages, and it may never get resolved.
It was the most difficult decision I faced in tackling my latest Packers-related project. Since covering the team on a regular basis for the past 22 seasons, either as a columnist, editor or reporter, I produced an all-Packers team by position from 1992 to the present.
During that time, the Packers showed the NFL what an elite franchise looks like:
They endured just two losing seasons, fewer than any other team.
Their three Super Bowl appearances was surpassed by only the New England Patriots.
Their 222-129-1 regular-season record (.632 winning percentage) is a very close second to the Patriots' 224-128 (.636) mark.
It's been a remarkable run of success that has lasted almost as long as the severe drought that preceded it. Prior to 1992, the Packers suffered through an abysmal 24-season depression in which they produced just five winning records and one playoff victory.
The biggest factor in the Packers' recent success has been the unprecedented stability and excellence at the most important position. Favre was the starting quarterback for 16 seasons and has been followed by Rodgers the past six years.
With apologies to Joe Montana and Steve Young, the Favre-Rodgers tandem should go down as the greatest back-to-back starting quarterbacks in NFL history.
Here's a look at the best Packers players at each position since 1992, a time period that can appropriately be termed the modern-era Glory Years.
