If you toss in Arnie Herber, the Packers have FOUR.

Of course, it also depends on how you classify some of them as not all played their entire careers for the same team.

I had to look after I posted that and was surprised to see the Pack had another in Herber.

I consider Bobby Lane a Lion and Dawson a Chief......

Then I would alter the question to only include the superbowl era.

The Colts will have had Unitas, Manning and Luck.
A few teams with two guys......but the niners have 3 already inducted.(well, I guess Tittle is not exactly superbowl era)

It may be getting a little too far out in front of things to consider Luck HOF-caliber. We're still pretty early in his career. He's good, no doubt, and he appears to be on that general path, but he'll have to accomplish a lot more to be HOF-worthy.

Sorry to nit-pick, it just seems premature to me. :)

Yeah...it's premature for sure. I think it's because I've been hearing about how wonderful he is since he was in college...

Just for Moth, really...

Brett Favre Says He Could Still Play In the NFL
“I think I could play,” Favre said. “As far as throwing. Of course, we’re not trying to start some he’s-coming-out-of-retirement deal.”

“Do I think I could play and lead a team? Look, no. But I could play. I could make all the throws I made before, I just couldn’t throw it near as far, but that never matters anyway.”
Like, maybe if you needed Favre for one game he could go out there and make the throws and get you through the game. But playing an entire season? Even Favre isn’t delusional enough to believe he could pull that off.

So, something for Rick Spielman to keep in mind. Like what if the Vikings get to the playoffs and God forbid Teddy Bridgewater gets hurt and for some reason the team doesn’t have faith in Shaun Hill. Maybe give old Brett a call in that situation?

Old Brett can still get you one win if you need it.

He probably could play decent but he wouldn't win games on his own ...much...

Farve played when QB's got hit ... not like today.. He did it very well and played a huge number of games
in a row. He gave us one really fun year and we got close.. I blame Chili for not forcing A.P. to learn to hold the
ball better. The refs allowed the Saints to roll his legs and hit him all game as well.
no one expects the Spanish Inquisition!
